We had the most gorgeous crab sandwich with a lovely side salad, Very friendly staff and the cafe is spotlessly clean. No all pervading chip or cooking smell.....splendid!!

We ate lunch there yesterday before leaving to come home and wished we had discovered it earlier! Wonderful fresh shellfish, dog friendly and excellent staff. We'll definitely be back on our next visit.

Lovely location alongside the harbour, really nice food and plenty of fresh seafood on offer. You can also pop in and buy a pot of seafood such as: cockles, prawns, crayfish, potted shrimp and delicious crab. If visiting Barmouth this cafe is definitely worth a visit.

The Lobster Pot is a Fish Shop - Takeaway- Café on the quayside with very limited inside seating and views only if you sit outside. We found the service disinterested and inattentive. The food we ate was acceptable but some of the dishes on the menu were overpriced i.e. a plate of bread and mussels at £14 ?

Staff were knowledgeable and rather fun, it's lovely to see people enjoy their job! Food was promptly served and cooked to perfection. A nice selection of drinks were on offer in a lovely... More
