It has such a lovely atmosphere. Staff is friendly and put effort to their work. Food tastes great and you can get main dish as well as dessert for a very good price. Portions are ok. If being nearby, try this restaurant, you won´t regret.

Hidden by the medieval city wall, Watson's Bistro is a clean and pretty restaurant with friendly staff. The food, from starters to dessert, was superb, definitely worth its price. I highly recommend the ox cheek. Bathroom 9/10.

We adored the food, the service and the atmosphere! We had the fritters for starters, the pork chop special and the ox cheek for mains and the undecided dessert. They were all phenomenal!!! Probably the best meal we've had in Wales so far! Thank you...More

Great menu, great food and great service. A little gem hidden in Conwy. I had prawns my partner had the salmon. Both were cooked perfectly and so tasty. Creme Brûlée and Eton Mess to follow...yum. Very reasonably priced for such tasty food. Would thoroughly recommend.
