Although I have been getting fish and chips from here for years I dont think I have ever left a review. Succulent fish and even good chips (which I find unusual from most fish and chip shops). Your order for fish is taken as you...queue and cooked before your eyes. It could not be fresher or more delicious. Perhaps the only sad thing is that it closes so early (7.30). Highly recommended.More

Had to queue for about 30 minutes, but I knew that from previous reviews. Well organised with one of the staff taking orders as people arrived and by the time it was our turn to be served, it was ready. Good quality fresh fish, well...cooked.More

We come to Cricceth around 30 times a year and absolutely love the place On occasions we have chips on the beach which are beautiful and that is not the issue. The problem recently is we and family members joined the expected queue at 5.10pm...and walked out with our food at 6.40pm. When it is this busy….someone needs to give an idea of waiting time for food. It did not seem as organised as previous visits As I said….wonderful food but no fun waiting that long with a 4 year old and chronically arthritic daughter. Please advise possibly wait times on extremely busy daysMore

Heard it was good & proved right. Small queue but they are very organised & take order before get to end so it’s already for you. Nice last meal at end of hols.

I mustn't be alone in thinking this place is good as there is a constant queue. Had to wait a bit to be served but well worth it with the excellent fish and chips. Loved it

Absolutely delicious fish and chips. My wife and I shared a large portion, cooked fresh in front of us. Staff were lovely, really nice to hear Welsh being spoken by the fryer. We ate on the beach in glorious Welsh sunshine. Stunning. Thank you.

If you go to Criccieth and don't have fish and chips from here......turn around and go back! Best fish and chips you will ever find. You have to queue....they are not slow...the food is excellent. Orders are taken outside which means YOUR food is cooked...fresh for you, not a fish that was pre prepared an hour ago. Excellent!!!More

What an amazing tea we had from Castle fish and chips..... .......we found out about them through trip advisor searches. We had just arrived at our holiday cottage on the esplanade.......and we're after a quick bite to eat. There was a queue, but worth the...wait as the food was freshly cooked to order. Very reasonable prices. Very friendly staff. Very tasty food. Good portion sizes. Be aware that they shut at 2000, not the 2359 that it says on TripAdvisor. We will be back!More

Called here for fish, chips and curry sauce on the first night of a 4 night stay in Criccieth and ended up coming back for exactly the same thing a couple of nights later, they were so good. Your order is taken whilst standing in...the queue and then items are cooked to order as you approach the till. One of the best cooked fish I’ve ever had with beautiful crispy batter. Would perhaps have liked a little more ‘kick’ to my curry sauce but that’s just personal preference. Ate them sat overlooking the beach - delightful! Highly recommend.More
