“Excellent evening”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Had an amazing meal on Saturday. The theme of the night was Middle Eastern mezze. Each individual dish was delicious with a unique blend of herbs and spices. This was the best meal I have had in Oren and loved the new setting. It was just like being invited around to a friends home for a meal. Thank you Gert for a wonderful evening.

“Brilliant evening!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

We loved our evening at this charming restaurant. The food was delicious and was cooked and served in a relaxed manner by Gert, who was most accommodating and hospitable.
Tiny and personal and so much nicer than most normal restaurants.
Very highly recommended

“Wonderful food!!!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Had an evening meal with friends.
The theme of the menu was local food. The meal was magnificent.
The atmosphere in Oren, in its new home, is like being in a friend's kitchen.
Love it there - Gert is a genius!

“Pleasant and unusual”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

The venue is easily missed as it's in a basement of a B&B. With just a few tables it's well managed by a very pleasant and charming owner/chef. The menu is very limited but the variety is good enough to please most people, I'd guess. There's a small wine menu and a beer on offer too. The atmosphere is relaxed and the chef cooks just a few metres away. Such a nice change from the usual restaurant. There's a set 3 course menu, which changes often I gather, at a very reasonable price. We would have returned but it closes on both Sunday and Monday night, a strange feature we noted in Caernarfon, being the middle of summer.

“What a find!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Absolutely loved this place, it is quirky and homely, and the proprietor was friendly and considerate. The food was delicious, a set menu with choice of meat or veggie main, and all tasted home-cooked and freshly prepared. A nice touch was being able to watch our food being cooked!

Lots of lovely touches such as edible nasturtium flower garnishes and halen mon smoked sea salt accompanying dishes. if you like fresh, clean flavours with vegetables and quality produce this is the place for you! Pudding was especially good, elderflower fritters hand-picked by the owner. take a look at their facebook page there are lots of pics to give you more of an idea.
