We visited as a family of 4 with young children, the menu looked delicious and plenty to chose from. The portions were large and the price very reasonable. The staff were very attentive. We would most definitely visit again if we were in the area.

Visited Y Cyfnod on the recommendation of several locals. The food and service both fantastic. Picture speaks for itself, was a very nice meal and we would definitely visit again. Y Cynod is open throughout the day and into the evening.
