Colwyn Bay...£325 to book a table at the Skip (Porth Eirias)! Would you pay it?

We went there once and that was bad enough! Far too expensive with tiny portions, and to be honest I am shocked that it is still going, as most evenings it looks empty, or almost empty!  
A ONCE in a lifetime opportunity to experience a two-Michelin star menu from the famous Le Gavroche is coming to Colwyn Bay.

Tables are booking up fast for the special event at Bryn Williams at Porth Eirias on December 6 and 7, when legendary chef Michel Roux Jr will bring Le Gavroche to life in North Wales.

For the first time in 20 years he will be teaming up with his old apprentice - Denbigh-born Bryn Williams. This will be the first time the duo have ever cooked together on Welsh soil. Sampling this one-off meal by two of the UK's leading chefs doesn't come cheap however - with tables costing £325 per head.

Williams worked for Michel Roux Jr at Le Gavroche in Mayfair between 1999 and 2003. Starting out as a demi chef he honed his craft and graduated to sous chef before becoming Chef Patron of his very first restaurant, Odette’s in 2008. 

As he opened more restaurants it was only a matter of time before he returned home to North Wales when he launched Bryn Williams at Porth Eirias in Colwyn Bay.

Now that venue will be transformed into the exquisite Le Gavroche for two nights in December. 

Diners will experience showcase of the very best of French and Welsh ingredients as Roux Jr, Williams and the Le Gavroche team offer diners a taste of the very best with a five-course menu and accompanying wines.  From....


  1. Not many people I know locally will go near the place, how is it still open?

  2. This place is awful, it looks empty most of the time, how is it still open? Are the council throwing favours of no rent?
