We visited for a takeaway to share on arrival in Criccieth as we had an evening meal arrangement with family. Delicious chips and more or less cooked to order. Second night we headed out for a pub meal on a lovely dry evening and decided to have fish and chips on the seafront! Fish was delicious - thin crispy batter... More

Very friendly and perfect fish and chips and mushy peas. Decided to eat in as we were staying a few miles away and the waitress was excellent. Perfect after a long walk up and down Snowden.

Food cooked fresh, staff/owners lovely. We thought it was a bit pricey until we realised the menu in the window was for eating in the restaurant and wasn't the take away price :-). Lovely fish

A straight forward chip shop worth the walk to even if up the hill from the front in order to take a sea view (but I wish everyone would use the bins). Good size well cooked portions even if we had to wait for a fresh lot of chips.

Great fish and chips but you will have to wait. It's well worth it though. Everything cooked to order and only a short walk to sit on the seafront to tuck in!

Friendly staff, good fish and chips (veg burger nice to and the guy very helpful in checking whether there was any sweet corn or not in it). We were recommended that this was the best in Criccieth and only just a short walk from where we were staying. Believe it can get very busy with long queues but we picked... More

Without a doubt the best F&C's in Criccieth, but remember to preorder large orders and take a big bag.

Probably the best fish & chips we've ever had. Amazing light batter, super tasty fish and great chips. What a treat! Thank you.

Having read previous reviews I made sure I was at the door at 5pm and even then there were a dozen people in front of me but I didn't have to wait long for my delicious portion of cod and chips. Beautiful crispy batter and well cooked chips eaten on the front overlooking the beach - perfect.

Thank Sue H
