We popped in here looking for a quick light lunch. It looked clean and fresh and we were not disappointed. We both had a pot of tea and my friend had cheese burger and chips and I had 2 eggs and chips. It was well presented and very tasty. At the end the bill was reasonable. I would recommend this...

We enjoyed a quick bite to eat here over the Easter holidays. We couldn't have wished for a warmer welcome. The food was good and we would definitely return.

We popped in more to get out of the rain than anything else, but the ladies running the place were welcoming and we had a nice chat with them whilst we enjoyed a nice hot chocolate. We didnt eat, but i have to say the food did look really nice and super good value too!

Wow is the only thing I can say about this little Cafe. Arrived in Aberdovey and after settling into our cottage we went looking for dinner. We looked at all the normal pubs but this place was empty and quiet so we went in. The owner was polite and friendly and gave us a lot of useful information about the... More

We often go to this restaurant when visiting Aberdovey. The staff are so friendly and accommodating and the food freshly cooked and delicious. I would say that it's mainly a fish and chips restaurant but there are salads and other items on the menu. The fish is fresh - not frozen - with lovely crisp batter. Highly recommended.

Plaice, ham, scampi, cod all very tasty with chips, jackets and either garden or mushy peas. Can't speak highly enough about this this little gem, well worth a visit - we... More

Always pop in here when visiting Aberdovey, amazing fish and food is fresh and well cooked and presented... The owner is lovely and friendly and nothing is to much trouble... I would say it could do with a bit of modernisation but the food and service is great...

Just happened to be passing and needed a late meal. The two ladies serving were excellent, very friendly and the food was really nice. Small place but well worth calling in.
