About
Olif is a Welsh tapas bar with boutique rooms in Betws Y Coed, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. We serve a Welsh-themed tapas menu, delivering a fusion of Welsh and Spanish small plates which we’re sure everyone will love. Aside from our juicy Gordal olives from Seville, we try to source all of our produce locally. From our customer feedback, we know that our commitment to using locally produced food which is cooked fresh each day (the only thing you’ll find in our freezer is ice cream and ice cubes!) makes a big difference to the quality and taste of our food. And you can wash it all down with a great range of local ales and ciders, over 50 Welsh small-batch gins, a great selection

We returned to Olif to celebrate our wedding anniversary, including of course a meal in the restaurant for the big day. The food was fabulous, from the selection of breads to start, the tapas... oh those Anglesey eggs through to dessert, every dish was piping...hot, tasty and beautifully cooked by the chef and owner Aubrey. My pudding of brownies with ice cream was gorgeous. I had to take hubby to take a photo of my face while stuffing this down my neck. 10 out of 10 for covid safety, friendliness and caring staff. Highly recommend the fantastic range of gins and Welsh beers on offer. I feel I must also mention the breakfast, local produce, oh those mushroom and bacon. yum yum. The fruit salad was lovely too.More

Absolutely lovely. Last minute booking for tapas for two. Cosy atmosphere with attentive and friendly staff. Pink sangria was lush like liquid candy floss. The food was also amazing washed down with a bottle of red. I can’t recommend Olif highly enough. What an asset...to Betws y Coed.More

Last minute booking in the middle of local lockdown. Absolutely fantastic! They had made such an effort to be covid safe it felt good from the first welcome. Food was perfect - even the moody teenage boy was praising his food 24 hours later!

Service was quick and there were some veggie options which was good but most of the food had too much salt in it. The restaurant has tried to partition people so that it’s safer during the pandemic. Booking required and the menu is online.

Response from Olifbetws | Property representative |
Hi there Olif is right in the centre of Snowdonia, and it is a 36 minute drive (on a road with spectacular scenery) to Mount Snowdon. If you don’t want to drive, there are regular ‘Sherpa’ buses that go from Betws y Coed... More
