Saturday lunchtime in August was always going to be busy but we didn't have to wait long for a table. The seating arrangements were cramped but the tables were cleared quickly. The staff were efficient and pleasant and the food arrived in reasonable time. Lunch was well cooked, nicely presented and very tasty. Prices were average for Criccieth and I... More

No visit to Criccieth would be complete without visiting Blue China's outdoor terrace, with its marvellous views of the beach, the sea and the mountains. The service is great, the food good, and the outdoor areas are dog friendly too.

I visited with family 9 in total. We had lunch and I have to say every meal was delicious. Price was very good as well. The service was fast and all meals fresh and good value for money. Will definitely come again and recommended to all. Good range of kids meals as well

Went for a drink after visiting the Castle. Didn't want a meal so had a HUGE slice a Blackberry and Apple pie which was just yummy. Nice cafe with exterior seating for when its sunny. Lots of tables inside and a nice little family area with sofas and books/crayons/toys.

A restaurant with very good wholesome food, nicely cooked and presented. We had a lovely butternut squash soup to start followed their special Welsh lamb and mint burger. Cooked perfectly pink and served with fries and salad.

We arrived after being on a long walk and were greeted by a lovely, obviously welsh waitress. We cracked some jokes with her and she gave us a bit of Cricieth's history after we asked to hear it which was very interesting and she gave us a little info about the next village where she lived. We had lovely toasted... More
