Opposite the Victorian pier, and in the comfortable St Tudno Hotel, The Terrace Hotel, bedecked with Mediterranean-style murals offers food good enough for a special detour.
Proprietor Martin Bland, who for many years also managed the stoves, now has the skills of Stephen Duffy at the helm. But standards have been consistent for many years.
Menu's change with the seasons, and include produce from nearby, but also further afield - where this is thought necessary.
Among the starters, you'll find the likes of 'Warm Salad of Sautéed Scallops with slow-cooked Chicken Wings, Leeks and Truffle Cream'; 'A Light Pressing of French Farmed Rabbit with Watercress, Granny Smith Apple and Vanilla Seeds'; 'Seared Rare Tuna with Niçoise Salad and Confit Lemon' and 'Stinking Bishop Soufflé with Celery Sorbet, Walnuts and Crème Fraiche'.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Slow-baked Monkfish with Cauliflower Pannacotta, Avruga Caviar, Artichoke and Potatoes'; 'Loin of Organic Rabbit with Scallop Mousse' and 'Roast Welsh Fillet of Beef with Ox Tongue Ragout, Fried "Veal Jus", Ceps, Parsnips and Thyme'.
If you opt for their full menu - a Pre Dessert will appear.
Maybe to be followed by 'Bitter Chocolate Truffle with Caramelised Pink Grapefruit and Chocolate Sorbet' or 'Roasted Pear Tart Tatin with Toasted Almonds and Cinnamon Ice Cream'.
They always have a selection of Welsh cheeses in peak condition.
Service is both friendly and professional.
