Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Third time I’ve eaten here and to be honest the food is disappointing. Doorstep sandwich is all bread and very little filling , crispy chicken salad was dry and overcooked. Have given it plenty of opportunities now i feel so wont be eating there again...alas.More

Absolute Amazing experience. We were lucky enough to celebrate our Wedding at the Oriel Cafe . We could not fault anything. The Room looked absolutely beautiful and the atmosphere was really good. The Staff couldn’t do enough for us throughout the day. The Food was...to die for . Not just the chicken Main course but the dessert Buffet and the Beef Stew in the evening with homemade Rolls was sooo good. Anyone that is looking for a Family celebration i can only recommend the Oriel Cafe.More

The menu was interesting, varied and creative. The staff are so dedicated to ensuring their dining guests have a very enjoyable experience. All in all a wonderful evening .

Our first visit to Oriel Cafe and we were delighted. A really sophisticated atmosphere with good music and plenty of space. A warm welcome from the lady at the counter. We ordered 2 Flat White Coffees and Flapjack and Cheese Cake. The coffee is certainly...the best that we have experienced in Llandudno and both desserts were excellent. The cafe has a city feel about it and I can certainly recommend it.More

What a Gem of a Cafe in the heart of Llandudno. Very unexpected to find this hidden away upstairs at the Art Gallery. Avery spacious Cafe with a modern and relaxing vibe. The Coffee is really really good and the Staff super friendly. I ordered...a Falafel Halloumi wrap, it was superb. Nicely toasted with a hint of Sweet Chilli Sauce. The presentation was lovely too. Very modern looking matching the surroundings. My Partner just had a piece of Cake with her Coffee. It took her a while to decide as there was such an extensive choice of which looked like homemade cakes. What we did realise that this Cafe offer’s a lot of Choices for Gluten Free and even Vegans. We can only recommend this Cafe and we will definitely be back when we are in the areaMore

Popped in for coffee/tea and cake with kids. Lovely atmosphere and great range of gluten free and other dietary options. Lovely food and the main menu looks worth a return visit. Staff super helpful they even brought my daughter her own espresso cup of cream,...as her brother had cream on his cake after overhearing she wanted some of his!More

Me and my wife have been here a number of times and the place just keeps getting better and better. Delicious food, friendly and professional staff, and the best coffee in town. The menu is full of exciting homemade dishes and caters for a wide...variety of tastes and dietary requirements. Nothing's ever too much trouble for the staff, they make you feel truly welcome and you can tell they put their heart and soul into what they do. Can't wait to see what this place becomes. If you haven't been yet I'd endeavour to change that if I were you. I'm looking forward to returning when I can!More
