We come down to Rhos for the weekend on a regular basis and the one thing that is ALWAYS on the agenda is a visit (or two if possible!) to Fortes. What can I say...it is fantastic - the best cafe in Rhos by far! The fact it is always busy is testament to how good it is. Lovely coffee and the meals are always spot on. Great views and a a decent sized outdoor seating area for sunny days. Dont come to Rhos without visiting Fortes is my advice!
Fortes is a great cafe on the seafront that has been around for many years.
They have a variety of food on offer including a gorgeous breakfast and a good range of snacks and sandwiches as well as meals.
Children are made welcome and are catered for well.
Fortes seems to have gone downhill recently, the staff just don't seem quite as attentive as they have done in the past. Their breakfasts are acceptable but pricey for what you get, I personally prefer a Little Chef breakfast over theirs but that's just personal preference. As for the setting, it's lovely if it's not been raining heavily as it has on a few occasions the last couple of months. I don't quite understand the appeal of this place, the ice cream on show looks pretty standard.
Fortes is situated in a perfect location where you can see the beach and the view is amazing. I may say that their food is slightly expensive as you don't get a lot from them and the restaurant may look a bit old. However, the food is nice and I would go there again.
An authentic Italian coffee shop and restaurant - the Forte family have been running it for over 50 years. Their attention to detail and service makes every visit here a pleasure - if only all food places were like this.
