If you’re looking for fine dining in the Conwy County, you might want to take a look at restaurants in Llandudno. One in particular which stood out to us by offering the full fine dining package was The Terrace, which is part of the stylish and seafront St Tudno Hotel.
Before we begin reviewing our fantastic experience at the restaurant, it has to be mentioned that this hotel offers escorted day trips and a concierge service with a sleek black Jaguar XJ. If this doesn’t set a luxurious tone for the establishment, we’re not sure what will.
Upon entering the restaurant, you’ll be greeted by the very welcoming and friendly staff. One of the most essential aspects about a restaurant experience is the level of service and attention you receive through the night, and The Terrace was certainly off to a good start for us.
Restaurant décor, despite it not having any effect on your food whatsoever, is also incredibly important – or so we believe anyway. The Terrace creates an elegant and exclusive atmosphere within the restaurant with grand chandeliers hanging from the ceiling creating ambient lighting and wonderful Lake Como murals on the walls, which spanned the length of the restaurant.
Upon viewing the menu, we were pleasantly surprised at the prices. We were looking at high-end bistro dishes, yet at the fraction of the price which you’d expect to pay; with an extensive variety that would leave even the most fussiest of diners spoiled for choice.
Opting for the pan roasted supreme of chicken and the fillet of beef topped with melted goats cheese, we eagerly awaited their arrival. The supreme of chicken was generously stuffed with Welsh cheddar cheese, as well as being wrapped in bacon and served on a bed of mushroom risotto – certainly indulgent!
As for the fillet of beef, it was topped with melted goat’s cheese and served with an absolutely delicious peppercorn and brandy cream sauce.
Once the mains had been thoroughly enjoyed, it was time to try the desserts on offer. Every pie and pudding was freshly home-made and equally as tempting. Eventually, the homemade key lime pie was the final choice. Zesty and rich, the Baileys whipped cream which accompanied the pie made for a scrumptious combination.
The presentation of the food was absolutely fantastic. Each dish was laid out imaginatively, and almost looked too good to eat – especially the desserts!
