Description: The Plas Restaurant is situated on the High Street of the Historic coastal town of Harlech. It's frontage gives few hints as to what lies beyond. An elegant Restaurant and a relaxing, comfortale Conservatory, with lawns to it's front taking full advantage of the most spectacular views of Royal St. David's Golf Course and across the bay to the Llyn Peninsular. From the conservatory and terrace there are wonderfully close views of Harlech Castle, once the home of Owain Glyndwr.
Oxfordshire, UK.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

Beautiful view if bay and castle (when not raining/cloudy as it was when we visited!) from balcony. Good efficient & friendly service but the coup de grace was my warm Welsh lamb baguette (with chips if course!), with my wife's fish goujon sandwich was apparently very good as well. Recommended.

“Nice Place - when open!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

We visited in March when the restaurant is only open at the weekend. The restaurant was nicely laid out in a spacious room. The quality of the food was very good, and the quantity was huge. There seemed to be a single server, who coped admirably. A 2 course Meal for 2 with drinks and coffees came to less than £50 so very good value. We'd eat at The Plas again when in Harlech

“Nice restaurant in a great Harlech location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

We visited The Plas out of season (February), and so it is difficult to be able to accurately review this restaurant as it would be in season/when busy.

But from our experience it seems a lovely restaurant, we had a pretty basic lunch (salad and sandwiches), and there was a good selection on the menu from substantial main dishes to a good selection of sandwiches and baguettes. There were only three couples present, and it was very quiet/lacked atmosphere but that was probably more to do with it being a Sunday afternoon out of season when most of Harlech High Street was closed.

But one thing that can be guaranteed is the fantastic location - for convenience situated on the High Street, and at the back of the restaurant a conservatory type building where we sat which has great views looking out to the sea across Harlech beach in the distance. There is also an outdoor seating area with the same view which I imagine is really nice in the summer.

There is a also what looked like a more formal dining area which when we visited was empty, but again I imagine in season could be a good place to eat.

Our experience was more accurately a 3 and a half (not quite very good but better than average), and I think that The Plas deserves a 4 star rather than 3 star rating.

“Good food, great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Earlier in the day, I had tried to make a reservation but was told by a restaurant employee that reservations were accepted. No worries, though, for the restaurant was nearly deserted on this particular Sunday evening. The food and service were good enough but not particularly noteworthy. What made this dining experience worthwhile was the spectacular views that allowed my friend and I to enjoy a glorious sunset. Outdoor seating was not feasible on this chilly evening, but I imagine it would have been ideal on a warmer day.
