Earlier this year, Dylan’s pizzeria opened their second branch, adding to their popular restaurant in Menai Bridge one in beautiful Criccieth.
The building is every bit as striking as the one on Water St, perhaps primarily because it was designed by the infamous Clough Williams-Ellis, most famous for being the architect behind the the unique village of Portmeirion.
The restaurant curves into the landscape, its white roof beautiful against the Welsh sky. It has been sympathetically restored by Robyn and the team, with much attention to detail and particular focus on the striking floor-to-ceiling windows.
Set right on the beach with a string of fairy lights separating the restaurant from the sea, the views are breath-taking, and our memories of our afternoon there are mainly of blue skies and fresh air.
The menu is the same as Menai Bridge – local seafood, burger boxes, fresh pasta, seasonal specials, great salt and, for our money, the best pizzas in Wales.
We went all out and ordered the Fruit de Mer – Menai oysters, local lobster and crab, clams and prawns, homemade breads and plenty of lemon wedges. Fresh and delicious. We thoroughly recommend a visit.
