Still a relatively recent arrival on this scenic stretch of the North Wales coast, The Quay Hotel & Spa occupies a plum spot looking across the Conwy Estuary. Its airy first-floor restaurant, The Vue, makes the most of the lovely setting with feature windows flooding natural light into the spacious modern room. Fine regional produce features heavily across the eclectic menu, from a vibrant cocktail combo of white crab meat & avocado to sparkling Menai oysters. Mains are more internationally influenced: traditional Welsh lamb is paired with braised baby gem & Provencal vegetables, while fillets of local sea bass sit atop a stack of Asian greens. Sidestep keenly priced desserts in favour of intriguing Welsh cheeses with home-baked bread. Smiling service & tinkling piano music contribute to the warmth of the room, which is at its best as the sun goes down.
