Have visited The Straits about 5 times over the last 7 months and every time the foods has been wonderful. There is a good varied menu to suit everyone and the food itself is of a lovely quality and presented well. The nice thing is having a fresh roll and a bottle of water on the table just after arriving... More

Six of us came here after work on Friday. We were early enough to get the meal deal and half did, half went for a la carte. The food is consistently excellent- probably best in Menai Bridge. Staff are friendly though service is a little slow sometimes. Scallop and black pudding starter is fabulous. The meal deal Coley was really... More

My wife booked a table on spec as my mother was up visiting us for the weekend. No idea what to expect apart from choice from a fixed price menu, or a la carte. We opted for an early sitting on Saturday and the fixed price. Parking, just across the road, was very easy, and on arrival there were only... More

We arrived on Mothers’ day to a cold restaurant upstairs. One air-conditioning system for the top floor, especially in winter is totally inadequate and it’s unfortunate that it didn’t seem like it had been on for long when we arrived. We we’re chilly throughout the meal. This is a basic bistro, no tablecloths nor place mats / drinks mats on... More

Went to the Straits restaurant for a belated Valentines meal (due to work commitments, I didn't forget valentines lol) and it was lovely. I was instantly impressed when I saw the set menu was £19.95 for 3 courses. The curried Butternut Squash soup was really tasty. Then I had the Pork Belly for main course which was cooked to perfection.... More

Wasn't sure what to expect as Dylan's is always the place you hear about in MB but the food and service were both excellent. We had the fixed menu for our anniversary and it was delicious - 2 amazing courses for around £15 and a well priced bottle of wine to go with it. Couldn't recommend more, excellent service too!...

I am a big fan of the starters at the Straits. (That's not to say that I don't appreciate the mains, I just prefer lots of variety and small tastes!) So I tend to order two or three starters for a meal here. The scallops and black pudding are heavenly - wonderful combination of flavours. Also the pork cheek -... More
