Why don't they take debit cards in a place this size (similar to many other restraints in Barmouth). Ordered Chicken family feast and extra chips and took over 45 mins to come, even though it looks like a fast food place. Why don't they simply take the cash and give the food out, before moving onto the next table. Some... More

We dined here this summer. It was at a very busy time and the restaurant was almost full. The cafe does have a basic canteen feel. The menus was extensive for a fish and chip eaterie. The wait for our food after we ordered from the counter was painfully long ( we thought we had alowed plenty of time but... More

Three fish & chips plus mushy peas to take away and eat on the beach front. The fish was large and freshly cooked, the chips were lovely, not at all greasy. It was served in paper not those horrible polystyrene containers that takeaways seem to use now. The lady serving us was delightful.

Won't be going here again! As we were coming in, it was practically empty apart from two other tables, one of which left as we arrived. Their table still wasn't cleaned up as we left. Ordered burger, chips and a drink to sit in - the man at the till didn't seem to understand and kept repeating the order wrong.... More

I visited the Carousel for a family lunch. We all sat down - there was nine of us. We ordered our food, and so far everything was good. Then, a really moody guy with glasses came over and told the two of us who were having bargain chicken buckets that there was a bit of a wait for the chicken.... More

As a vegetarian I was surprised at how attentive the staff were to facilitate my dietary needs. I enjoyed a few veggie burgers with chips cooked in oil in which only potatoes are cooked, and a small salad. The staff were really friendly and willing to please. The dining area is very large and suitable for large families as well... More

We stopped off in Barmouth for lunch and couldn't miss this quite large fast food restaurant on the corner of the busy shopping area. Inside it's a huge expanse of white tables and chairs which appear spotless and a long counter on the right where you can order everything from fish and chips to burgers and everything inbetween. We also... More

Ate here today and thoroughly recommend it. What really swayed us to choose this particular cafe was it offered a small portion of fish, this may not be to everyones taste but both myself and my husband don't have big appetites and get tired of leaving half of a meal-it seems like such a waste. The food was lovely, it... More

Been here a few times now, and am consistently dissapointed. If the Mermaid chip shop has a queue half way down the road, we will attempt this chip shop as its close to the train station. But each time we feel let down, and wont be going back again. The food tastes okay, but you dont get much for your... More

Worse customer service I have seen this holiday. My husband and I ordered our meals at the till (family of 4) then the meal was supposed to be brought to us.
