Tonnau Restaurant


Criccieth, Gwynedd
17/11/2021: Hotel based restaurants are all pretty similar in my experience. They cater for the hotel guests, within a mostly acceptable set of parameters. Usually, they’ll get breakfast about right, and offer a predictable menu for the evening. And then there’s Tonnau. What an incredible hidden gem of a restaurant this is! First off all, it’s absolutely spotlessly clean, tidy and organised. The decor is super contemporary with a very high-end feel to it. Clearly, the owners of the Caergwylan Hotel (within which the restaurant is located) have a fine eye for design and detail. The restaurant makes an outstanding first impression before you’ve even been shown to your table. Unbelievably, things get better from there! We were looked after by Laura for dinner and breakfast, and her enthusiasm for the restaurant and indeed for the whole hotel is uplifting and joyous. She was incredibly professional, and at the same time friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient. I’m very tempted to suggest that the quality of the service is the stand out feature of the restaurant, but even that is surpassed by what comes out of the kitchen!! The food at Tonnau is in a class of its own. The menus are imaginative, with locally sourced produce featuring throughout the dishes. Presentation on the plate is of a very high standard, demonstrating the chef’s attention to detail, and everything we ate was cooked to perfection and served piping hot on hot plates. I ordered a fillet steak cooked medium rare. It was easily one of the best steaks I have ever enjoyed, and cooked absolutely to perfection. EXACTLY medium rare, and left to rest for sufficient time before serving. If you’re lucky enough to stay at the Caergwylan Hotel (also highly recommended), don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy an evening at Tonnau. Even if you’re not staying at Caergwylan but are in reach of Criccieth, an evening at Tonnau should be on your list of priorities. You’ll need to book in advance though! One final point, on a Tuesday in mid-November, Tonnau’s breakfast menu includes Croissants, freshly baked to order. I have never been offered “freshly baked to order” in any hotel restaurant anywhere in the World! It goes without saying that they are the star of the breakfast menu! Or was it the Eggs Royale…..?
15/11/2021: Stayed at the Caerwylan Hotel recently and dined in the restaurant 3 nights. There was a good choice on the menu and the food was excellent. I am gluten free and was well catered for, particularly at breakfast each morning. A special mention to Laura and Haf, who looked after us superbly, with very friendly quick and efficient service. There is a nice atmosphere in the restaurant and it’s a lovely place to dine.

Prince of Wales


Criccieth, Gwynedd
19/10/2021: Came across this pub whilst travelling and staying in the local area, looked a lovely pub with a big sign outside saying ‘great food served here’ ticking the boxes so far, me and my partner went inside and got shown to our table. We ordered food, the Prince Burger and surf n turf … when the food arrived it looked lovely but unfortunately tasted the opposite! Medium steak was rare and the burger had cheap cheese on top and was way over seasoned the point where I only ate the chips on the plate and not even all off them! My partner also left over half a plate of food due to its poor quality and taste! On the waitress coming and taking our plates she asked if everything was okay and on my partner saying ‘no clearly not when your taking away a full plate of food and half a plate of food, it wasn’t the best and we’re not happy with what we’ve been served’ the waitress’s response was ‘okay I’ll let the chef know’ there was no apologies from anyone working in the pub and no manger or supervisor came over to us and we still had to pay the full amount of £37 for 2 meals ( one of which wasn’t hardly touched and the second over half a plate left) and 2 drinks!!!! Wouldn’t recommend to anyone unless you want to waste money!!!
17/10/2021: The landlord was very accommodating and the warmth of the welcome was the highlight, closely followed by the excellent service and fantastic Sunday lunch. We had the beef and lamb roasts - excellent quantity and great roast spuds and parsnips. There are not too many alternatives for a roast in Criccieth on a Sunday but this excellent, traditional pub is well worth a visit. Beware, numbers of covers are limited to 50 for the roasts - don’t be disappointed and get in well before 1.00pm. A real highlight.
