Saint mary street, Brecon, LD3 7AA [Map]
A cosy little restaurant, with a charming and welcoming setting, Roberto's Restaurant is equally popular amongst locals and regular town visitors who love authentic Italian cuisine. Using vibrant colours in the décor, the restaurant has a lively vibe with a creeper clad ceiling, a black board menu and patio seating adding to the ambiance.
While executing regional recipes from Italy, Roberto's Ristorante presents a good variety of appetizers. These include deep fried traditional coated mushrooms and a lightly battered assortment of prawns, calamari, whitebait and monkfish served with homemade garlic mayonnaise. Don't wait for pizzas amongst other courses, rather a range of pastas, fish fillets and classic meat dishes from the Italian cuisine. Expect to find vegetarian options thrown in for good measure on the menu.
Crème brûlée with a hint of white chocolate and fresh raspberries and the creamy rice pudding topped with toasted coconut and laced with apricot coulis deserve a special mention.
The Lake Country House Hotel & Spa, Llangammarch Wells, LD4 4BS [Map]
A very splendid mock half-timbered hotel set in 50 acres of prime countryside, three of which are occupied by the lake that gives the hotel its name. From the moment you navigate the drive you feel the mantle of the slightly formal country house around you, yet the ambience is comfortable and relaxed. This is a house set to impress but not to overpower, with miles of expensive fabrics, squashy sofas and furniture that is easy on the eye.
Easy on the palate is the extensive menu, served with more formality in a room that is the very epitome of monied class. A typical meal might start with blackened fillet of red mullet on a croute of cornbread, with tomato and avocado salsa, blessed with a chilli and lime dressing. The fillet of Welsh beef studded with roasted garlic, on black olive linguini, with aubergine caviar, tomato and shallot fondue and coriander pesto for many would be almost irresistible, though the salmon 'en trois facon' with a change of starter could be a close second.
Tucked in amongst the temptations the green apple terrine with a cinnamon sauce and yoghurt ice cream is an unusual item that merits investigation. For some the piece de resistance might be the wine list, in itself sufficient justification for a visit to this haven of taste and luxury. There are over 350 bins, with the Old World very thoroughly represented. All five Bordeaux Premier Crus Classes are there, together with many of the finest Burgundian Grand Cru vineyards. Carefully chosen New World wines also feature, with others from the Lebanon attracting increasing interest.

Lake Vyrnwy Hotel & Spa, Lake Vyrnwy, Llanwddyn, SY10 0LY [Map]
The splendidly located hotel in Mid Wales was built to accommodate all those concerned in the construction of the reservoir, now indistinguishable as such, in 1881. The views are spectacular, and inside the hotel the décor and furnishings are those of a very comfortable country house. Liverpool's city fathers, for whom the water supply was intended, in their wisdom decided to purchase 24,000 surrounding acres to ensure purity of the supply, so the sporting opportunities are mind-blowing with shooting, fishing, bird-watching and walking all available.
In the AA Rosette winning restaurant, the emphasis all on the gloriously fresh local produce, organic lamb reared on the estate, locally shot game and freshly caught fish from nearby Pwllhelli. The cooking style is contemporary but the portions are hearty and aimed to satisfy. Expect to find trio of lamb on the menu, with confit of shoulder, pink lamb cutlet, and baby shepherd pie. Even the breakfast marmalade is made by the chef.
