It’s owned and run by a chef local to the area, and all ingredients are locally sourced. The result? A menu that is truly reflective of Welsh cuisine. From the tender pot roast of Welsh beef and slow braised shoulder of Conwy Valley lamb, to creamed leeks with Welsh Perl Wen brie – the mouth-watering menu at the Bistro Bach makes it truly the best restaurant in Llandudno to sample Welsh Cuisine.

Best Café- The Loaf Coffee and Sandwich Bar

Rated number 1 on Trip Adviser for the best restaurants in Llandudno, the Loaf Coffee and Sandwich Bar truly deserves its spot on our list of the best restaurants in Llandudno. It specialises in serving freshly brewed coffee, and delicious homemade cakes. 

They also serve a hearty breakfast (as all good cafes should do) consisting of locally sourced sausages and bacon. You might have to wait a little while for your food though as everything is freshly cooked to order, but we think this is the way it should be. 

Best Chinese – Tops Chinese

They have a huge menu featuring everything you’d expect from a Chinese restaurant in the UK (think the classics: crispy duck, spring rolls, chow mein, etc), in addition to a variety of dishes that are more authentic, such as dim sum and congee.
