Booked table for 14 for a family celebration. Ordered main meals prior to our visit to make things easier/quicker. Every single meal was absolutely perfect. My salmon just melted in the mouth, cooked to perfection. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, the desserts arrived. The chocolate brownie is the best I've ever tasted (and I've tried a... More

It took us some time to find the Harbourfront Bistro which is located at the back of the Holyhead Maritime Museum on the beachfront. The restaurant is quite small with room for about 20 covers though there is an outside seating area which they use at lunchtime. The food was very good. It is not fine dining but serves good...

excellent meals and sandwiches most of which come with a GF option. You also get very generous portions. There is outside seating overlooking the harbour and if it is chilly warm blankets are provided.

Just dropping family off at the ferry terminal decided to have our lunch here first. What a lovely place ran by extremely pleasant staff and the food was just superb and even blankets to keep you warm during a chilly breeze. :-). Many thanks you made the journey worthwhile.

Just stopped by for coffee after visiting the museum next door, and was delighted to see so much on the menu that was gluten free. We couldn't resist trying the cheesecake which I can thoroughly recommend. Had we been in the area for longer we would have returned for a meal at some point. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

We found the Harbourfront, hands down, the very best eatery in Holyhead. We ate lunch there three times and were never disappointed. The staff were welcoming, they serve good coffee (always a bonus) the meals have good size portions, and it's prepared by real chefs......who can cook! (Believe me, not every eatery in Holyhead can boast that) Limited seating inside... More

We popped in by chance and were immediately welcomed. We weren't sure what to expect, especially as the kitchen area seemed quite small but we were pleasantly surprised. All the food that came out looked fabulous and very well presented. The food we had tasted fantastic. We had plenty and the quality was outstanding. It was such a calm, relaxed... More
