Great dinner and service - much better by Parys standards. Food was served fresh and with a smile. Just beware, the staircase is steep - don’t dine upstairs if you can’t handle your drink!

5 stars for the food, 5 stars for the service and 5 stars for the gin. Hoi Polloi was an amazing experience. I recommend it to anyone who visit Parys or even just when you are passing through.

We have been at this restaurant 3 x (dinner/drinks/lunch). It looks fantastic, really special (especially inside) and has professional staff! Food is more than OK and prices are fair. If you are in Parys this restaurant is a must!
