This bistro-style restaurant is the epitome of what Michelin's Bib Gourmand award is meant for: exceptionally good food at moderate prices. A mere stone's throw from the sea, Porth Eirias focuses on seafood but does not neglect other excellent local ingredients. Open throughout the day, this is the perfect place to go for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, a cocktail, dinner or even all of the above. The airy space gives any meal a relaxed vibe, while friendly staff deliver the goods.

Those starting their day at Porth Eirias can enjoy a croissant or bacon and brioche roll from the bakery, eggs Benedict or Royale for a more lavish option, or go all-in for a Porth Eirias full breakfast. Coffee and tea are available, as well as a cheeky brunch cocktail for celebrations. The lunch and dinner menu starts off with soda bread and olives, perfect for snacking while you peruse the menu. The highly affordable starters include salt and pepper squid with spring onion and lime mayo, roasted prawns with garlic and chilli or a ham hock terrine with fruit chutney and sourdough. 

The seafood at Porth Eirias is the main event, with classic dishes such as daily catch fish fingers with fries and crushed peas, smoked haddock with crushed potatoes and a poached egg or a grilled salmon fillet with white bean cassoulet and broccoli. Alternatively, there are meat options such as an 8oz Welsh rib-eye steak and fries or a confit duck leg with celeriac fondant and savoy cabbage. Vegetarians, meanwhile, can enjoy a roasted cauliflower with tarragon polenta and pine nut dressing. 

Diners can finish their meal at Porth Eirias with a house baked Alaska, creme brulee, ginger pannacotta or a rice pudding with almond crumble. Those seeking a more savoury end to the dining experience can opt for Caerffili cheese with pear chutney.

Not impressed

Was not at all impressed with the meal.  Food tasted like it had been cooked days before and reheated. Trays of cooked food was sitting on floor with dish towel over the top in kitchen. Bins around the side had aldi branding on packaging. And lots more precooked food in bags the only good thing was it was dated.


Price was very high as well

My go to restaurant in North Wales, always! Polite and helpful staff and always well priced and excellent food. Book a window table if you can and avoid school holidays as it is very busy with the waterspouts then.
