The only place to go for miles around. If you're feeling in the mood for fish and chips, then you'll be well served here. There's usually a line out the door and that will give you all the info you need. The fish is always freshly fried and the chips are hot. Good stuff.

I wonder about those few less flattering reviews!!! This 'chippy' is great!! Admittedly there is usually a queue but that just about says it all...the reason is, it's very good and definitely worth the wait.

I've never been to this place without seeing a long line, but this place is excellent. Although we stayed near Llan Ffestiniog (to be central to all the great mountain bike parks of north wales), it is worth the trip to Criccieth for the great beaches, and of course some fantastic fish and chips which fill a big hole after...

The queue was halfway up the hill, but it was worth the wait. The freshest chips, whitest succulent cod, in the crispiest batter I have had in years. We took ours to the car and eat them watching the waves roll in. As I said: perfect fish and chips.

My family always have fish and chips when we visit Criccieth and this is the place to get them. We're always very happy with the food, excellent in fact. The ONLY annoying thing is the incredibly slow service. You always queue for a long time which taints an otherwise great little chippy.

This has just got to be the best Chippy in this area of North Wales!The food on offer is fantastic and this place is extremely popular and one can see just why. When we were there they were queuing outside going up the street.I took this as a big positive regarding the quality of the food on offer!! FANTASTIC!
