Looking for the best restaurants in North Wales? You’ve come to the right place!
From fine-dining experiences to cosy pubs, North Wales has plenty of popular restaurants for every taste bud. Enjoy a romantic meal for two in Anglesey or relax with a pie and a pint after a long walk in Snowdonia.
Here are some of our favourite restaurants in North Wales to enjoy during your North Wales holiday…
An instant success when it opened, The Midland is definitely one of our favourite places to eat in North Wales. The chic understated decor of this wine and tapas bar has breathed new life into this beautiful former bank.
The mouthwatering menu leaves you spoilt for choice with options such as Jamon Iberico and Patatas Bravas. Their Cask Marque Awarded bar serves a selection of fine ales and collection of gins – oh and cocktails of the day!
A popular North Wales restaurant amongst both locals and holidaymakers, Dylan’s Restaurant is a must if you’re visiting Anglesey. With modern styling and a boatyard theme, Dylan’s offers stunning views across the Menai Strait from almost every table.
Their menu is full of delicious seafood, fresh-baked bread and local produce from the surrounding areas. Since opening their doors in May 2012, Dylan’s have expanded with restaurants in Menai Bridge, Criccieth and Llandudno.
A fine dining experience in the heart of Menai Bridge, Sosban and the Old Butchers is a culinary experience like no other.
If you’re looking for an extra special treat, then this is the place for you. Enjoy a series of dishes using locally sourced produce at this intimate restaurant in North Wales. Booking is a must and we recommend you book well in advance.

Opened in 2016, with brilliant reviews ever since, The Bank brings a contemporary venue to Barmouth. Serving a menu of sourced ingredients and an impressive wine list, The Bank offers great food in an informal atmosphere.
Born from Megan and Ryan’s long-held passion to open their own restaurant, they are open for dinner between 6 and 9pm and Sunday lunch. There is no children’s menu and booking is advisable.
Part of the rustic yet beautiful Bodnant estate, The Bodnant Welsh Food Centre is home to three fantastic restaurants, a cafe and farm shop. Take your pick from the Furnace, The Hayloft or The Looking Glass.
The Furnace is our favourite spot for a spot of lunch or a hearty breakfast. Enjoy a traditional Welsh rarebit whilst overlooking the Conwy Valley.
Whilst you’re here, why not enjoy a trip to Bodnant Gardens, one of our favourite National Trust Gardens in North Wales.
Its reputation precedes it. The 15th century Black Boy Inn sits within the walls of this medieval town and has won Bronze awards for the ‘Best Food in Wales’.
Old world charm bursting with period features, crackling fires and great value pub food. What’s not to love?

As one of our favourite places to visit on the Llyn Peninsula, Ty Coch Inn is a must for anyone visiting the Llyn. Voted as one of the top ten beach bars in the world, the inn is located on one of the UK’s most spectacular beaches.
Visitors must walk across the golden sandy beach from Morfa Nefyn to reach Ty Coch. But it’s well worth it – grab a pint, enjoy a bite to eat and watch the waves roll in.
Once you tear your eyes away from the view across the bay (you’ll see!), you can enjoy a small, freshly prepared bistro menu at The Moorings Bistro. Situated along the Wales Coast Path, just a short drive from Porthmadog, this is one of the best places to eat in North Wales.
The afternoon tea is a delight and all their delicious dishes can be enjoyed either sitting inside or out on the heated terrace.
This small, family-owned business has been a favourite with locals and visitors alike for over 20 years. Poachers Restaurant is located in the picturesque seaside town of Criccieth.
Traditional and international dishes feature on the menu of this family-friendly restaurant. Poachers is well-known for its great value and generous portions.
