Modern airy restaurant overlooking the Menai Strait in the charming small town of Menai Bridge, beside Thomas Telford’s eternally-impressive suspension bridge. It’s been such as hit with the Anglesey set these past three years that Dylan’s expands with a new restaurant in Criccieth this summer.


Seafood and much more, including pizzas and burgers to keep the kids happy. You could push the boat out with a £60 sharing platter of Anglesey fruits de mer (oysters, lobster, crab, clams and prawns) We opted for a starter of Dylan’s crab cakes (£7.95) - three little cannonballs, satisfyingly more fish than filler, on a bed of rocket with a zingy green chilli sauce. A main course of grilled sea bass (£15.95) came with sultana couscous and roasted fennel, ripe autumnal flavours imaginatively counterpointed by a summery flash of carrot and cumin puree. A very accomplished fish dish. Seafood linguini (£14.95) was equally impressive, heavy on the local mussels which are at the core of Dylan’s offering.

A pud of vanilla rice pudding (£5.95) came with Dylan’s own strawberry balsamic jam - an upmarket school dinner.

Decor and ambience

Wooden floors, metal tables, weathered red metal bar stools at the ornate metal bar, utilitarian metal bread bowls... a stylised nod towards the traditional seaside cafe. It all works beautifully, but even if it didn’t, that wonderful location with views over the strait would carry the day.


Friendly and efficient


Budget for around £70 for a meal for two, three courses with a couple of drinks each.
