Delicious smoked mackerel pate and seafood chowder. A great casual dining spot in the autumn sun with a great view.

Friendly, quaint, easy going cafe. Charming. Used to be more of a fish counter and sandwich bar. Now done up as a cafe restaurant.

I am not a burger fan because they mostly disappoint. Their surf and turf burger did not. It was delicious. Quality ingredients and great taste. Ordering at a counter 3 feet from the table seemed pointless. Table service would transform this from a good to...More

This restaurant is excellent. We had the dressed lobster which was amazing. Eating fresh lobster drinking chilled white wine over looking Barmouth harbour - perfect. We went back a week or so later and had fresh crab sandwiches- beautiful.
