Caerwylan Hotel   –   Tel. No.  01766 522547

Amazing food!  The chef at the Caerwylan has a Mitchellin star-rating.  The presentation and the taste of the food is mmmmm gorgeous.  I usually feel as though I should take a photograph of it rather than eat it!  The good news is that, generally,  it is no more expensive then the other restaurants in Criccieth.

Also open for Sunday lunch and afternoon teas during the week.

They also have a bar and lounge area overlooking the sea.
