We had the pleasure of dining in Olif on Sunday and experienced a Welsh tapas treat. The food is almost entirely locally sourced. Our food was cooked to perfection and the recommended 5 tapas for 2 people was spot on. The staff went above and...More

It’s a 3 minutes walk. Just turn right when you come out of Bryn Afon and we’re just next door to Craft Cymru.

Olif is a 5 Star Restaurant with Rooms in Betws Y Coed, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. During the day, the cafe offers breakfast using locally sourced produce, including favourites like the Full Welsh Breakfast, but also providing lighter option and options for vegetarians and vegans, including avocado toast with poached eggs and banana and peanut butter toast. At weekends, the restaurant opens during the day and serves hand minced 'Gourmet Burgers', a light tapas menu and indulgent Afternoon Teas. In the evenings the restaurant offers a Welsh-themed tapas menu, delivering a fusion of Welsh and Mediterranean small plates. Tapas ingredients are sourced where possible from local producers in Wales. This even includes the Chorizo and Salami, which is produced by Conwy farmers 'Cig Howatson'. There are also dishes using Camarthen Ham, which is rumoured to be a recipe stolen from the Welsh by the Romans who then called it Parma Ham! The only ingredient definitely not sourced locally is the olives which are grown in Seville. All of the above can be washed down with an impressive selection of bottled local ales, ciders and spirits, along with a great selection of Spanish and Welsh wines that won't break the bank.
