Indian restaurant opens at harbour that's 'food and drink hub in the making'

A new Indian restaurant has opened at a harbour that is a "food and drinks hub in the making". The Seaview Indian restaurant launched at Doc Fictoria this week.

Sona Meah and Gaynor Morris, who already run Caffi Cei, are behind the new venture - backed by the owner of the Sopna in Pontrug. It adds to existing eating places at the harbour like Fu's Chinese restaurant, the Galeri cafe bar and Table Table.

There are also plans for a brewery and taproom at the quay as the area builds up its reputation as a place to eat and drink.

Gaynor said: "The Seaview Indian restaurant at Doc Fictoria Harbour is an ideal location and we believe the harbour is the new food and drinks hub in the making. Sona's background is food and beverage - ranging from The Belfry, Plough and Harrow Hotel in Birmingham and managing Whitbread pub restaurants such as Brewers Fayre and Table Table. Raj is a well experienced chef and owner of the renowned Sopna.

"Caernarfon is undergoing a difficult time after COVID, the recovery being very slow and many businesses having closed. The town needs a lift and a premier Indian restaurant experience that becomes the talk of the town and North Wales."

The restaurant can seat over 90 guests and overlooks the harbour. Gaynor said they will serve quality food in a good ambiance. They also hope to help train up people for the hospitality sector.

She said: "Our desire is to help our community with training the future caterers that have a desire to join the catering industry, helping our youngsters find work through training, work experience and building self confidence."
