    Some quick snaps from my birthday lunch today at Tyddyn Llan: https://www.tyddynllan.co.uk/north-wales-restaurant/ I decided to go all fish, as I don't often have access to lobster or turbot...

    Starter was Grilled Lobster with Ginger, Coriander and Lime Butter:



    My main course was Roast Turbot with Coco Beans in a Dill and Mustard Sauce:



    Both were superb!

    Dad's main course was Wild Sea Bass with a Laverbread Beurre Blanc:



    Overview of table:



    The wines, both of which were outstanding examples of regional French wines from small/low-production, specialist vineyards:



    Forgot to take pics of my dad's starter of Calves' Sweetbreads with potato and olive cake, tartar sauce, which he loved, and also Del's veggie food We were just too busy talking and eating!

    However, the food and surroundings were superb, and great time was had by everyone

    How did it compare to Nardini’s?

    Anyway, here's the fish supper I enjoyed in the car earlier (£6.50):



    I like 'chip shop' brown sauce on my chips (when they've made it up themselves, and have it on the counter in plastic bottles)! Lovely golden crispy, thin batter, and beautifully white flaky fish inside... It was fab

    Cheers, mate. Yeah it was great, and the setting is just gorgeous, with pre-lunch drinks and canapés served outside on tables under cover in their beautiful grounds, whilst you peruse the menu and (extensive wine list):



    Main house:



    ...then the (highly attentive and friendly) staff escort you through to the rather lovely dining room:





    Highly recommended for a special occasion!

    Check out the pdf: https://www.tyddynllan.co.uk/downloads/winelist.pdf

    It's a carefully compiled list of quality vintages, with some unusual selections. What also impressed me was that they also sell an extensive selection of reasonably priced wines by carafe, which is rarely seen these days and offers excellent value for money

    Hi Gaz,

    Cheers mate, it was quality. Quite different from what I had for my birthday, though! but a veritable example of how even the simplest of foods, done well, can be fab!

    Different from Nardini's, as I get haddock there, but as you've pointed out the batter is one of the best I've had. Incidentally, if you're in Largs again, the best fish and chips, although it's just a takeaway, is Gino's in the Main St: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/uv?hl=...oiowCnoECBkQBg

    Much cheaper than Nardini's and for me, better. Check it out next time you're there

    Marco.
