Description: Welcome to Castle Restaurant & Armoury Bar Caribbean food has its roots in many cultures and influences, from the indigenous Carib and Arawak Indians to French, Spanish, Dutch, British, African, Indian and Chinese. The cuisine is an amalgam of all these influences and offers a wide range of flavours. Caribbean food is spicy but not necessarily hot. The word spicy should be defined as packed full of flavour! For those of you who like hot food hot pepper sauces are available for you to try. When you visit Castle Restaurant & Armoury Bar, known locally as "The Caribbean", you're in for a treat. We are the first Caribbean restaurant in Gwynedd, perhaps the whole of North Wales. Experience our unique take on Caribbean food. Creole-style dishes, jerk meats and fish, curries, vegetarian choices are amongst the mouthwatering dishes we offer. The proprietor was born in Trinidad and Tobago, renowned for its creative combinations of spices and sauces. "Trini" cooking provides the basis for many of our dishes. However we serve many popular dishes from across the Caribbean. Our warm and friendly atmosphere will instantly relax you while you listen to the sounds of jazz, soul, blues, reggae, calypso and R&B. Choose from a selection of spirits, wines, beers, cocktails and soft drinks while our attentive staff take your order for dinner. Castle Restaurant & Armoury Bar is the perfect destination for your next night out, whether an intimate dinner for two or a large group celebration. Call or email us to reserve your table.

Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is staying in North Wales or Harlech.

Thanks again and we will be back!

“A delightful restaurant”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The food was just lovely and the atmosphere friendly and relaxing. The children enjoyed it too. I don't think it was expensive as the food was to a very high standard.

The lamb was awesome!

You get what you pay for in this case amazingness :) we were told that they were fully booked and turning people away but they squeezed me and my partner in after we say drinking cocktails.

What a find, thanks to Trip Advisor!
Talk about a jewel, to find a Caribbean Restaurant in the shadow of the beautiful Harlech Castle in North Wales with great ambience, charming host & hostess and first rate cuisine how lucky we were!
We tried the Goat Curry, Jerk Lamb & Fish, all of us were delighted, well done Wayne & Cathy, we will be back.

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We had a memorable meal at this lovely Caribbean restaurant in Harlech. The contrast between the biting easterly wind outside and the warming spices of the food couldn't have been greater! We were greeted by Wayne, the restaurant owner and chef and during the course of the evening he served us with the best curried goat my brother has ever tasted, as well as mouth-watering king prawns and Havana chicken. All served with perfectly cooked rice and peppery hot rocket salad.

This restaurant is a must-go-to if you happen to be in Snowdonia, a real asset to Harlech. We will make a bee-line for it the next time we are lucky enought to spend some time in this beautiful corner of Wales.
