Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Delicious food in a warm and friendly atmosphere on the first really wintry night of 2013. Excellent service and an imaginative menu.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Visited Criccieth for a weekend break and had our evening meal here on the Saturday night. Didn't book but the staff managed to find us a table with a 15 minute wait which we spent walking up and down the High Street. The menu selections are fantastic and the portion size huge. There is a specials menu and an al a carte with a wine list that isn't prohibative. All in all would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Enjoyable meal”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We were lucky to arrive early without a booking and get a table. The fixed price menus offers excellent value and both the mackerel pâté and goat's cheese starters were delicious. The main course of hake was superb but unfortunately we were too full to manage a desert. The service was friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.

“Good food, good atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

A gem of a restaurant in Criccieth.
The food was very good indeed, nicely presented and delicious (the most important thing).
Visited with friends and had a lovely evening, good food and a friendly atmosphere. Staff very attentive, ensuring all was well, couldn't fault a thing. Mackerel pâté starter was delicious, with lovely bean salad accompaniment, main course of lamb - superb.
We all chose from the fixed price menu, very good value for money. Plenty of choice (a la carte also excellent choices if required).
Look forward to a return visit.
