Amazing food with a bar/lounge area overlooking the esplanade.  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.
