The outside and inside are not inviting but the meal was great, a real treat. The waitress was helpful, guiding us through the menu. We could not believe how good the food was, it was the best meal we had eaten for ages, we were talking about it for days after.

We researched Dolgellau before we visited and saw this place on Tripadvisor so we called and booked a table - I recommend doing this as they were unable to accept walk-ins on the day we went! The food was absolutely stunning!! So fresh, delicious, and far too many choices - a favourite was the pork skewers and the duck in filo! Make sure you leave room for cheesecake though - possibly the best I have eaten in a long time! If you are in Dolgellau, make sure you make time to visit here!

Lovely tapas, 3 veggie options plus side dishes. Small but good selection of wines. An excellent eating place in Dolgellau, opened quite recently and will go from strength to strength. Good luck for the future.

This tapas bar was recommended to us by the landlady where we were staying, and we must say, what a blinking great recommendation! We popped along in the afternoon to book a table, and were told that they were fully booked that evening. However the lovely lady dealing with our query told us to call back near to the time that we wanted to eat, and if she could, she would fit us in. Well we did, she did, and what a great night. Lovely staff, astonishingly good food, nice beer, great music, and a very fairly price total bill. We bought the owners a drink each, and our 4 x lagers, 3 x Pepsi, mains and deserts came in at under £40 which I think is pretty awesome for the scoff and drinks that we indulged in. We done tapas as we think that it should be done; we shared everything. What a lovely experience, and I for one, can't wait to go back.

A place we discovered last month, then went back again as we happened to be in Dolgellau again. Full on a Saturday night, with many locals eating - always a good indication.
Super food, well cooked, nicely presented and generous helpings. A decent slab of very tasty cheesecake for dessert too, often a letdown but not here.

Very friendly service, amusing to hear the waitress move to the next table and take their order in welsh!

Others have mentioned the decor. The place used (I think) to be a rather shabby bar and the tapas restaurant seems fairly new so give them time to get it sorted. Also a point to note before you go is cash only - no cards - on both times we've been there. However there are several cashpoints within 2 minutes walk so not a problem.

Summary: A gem. Go and enjoy.
