Visited Friday just gone with my wife for a special occasion and was thoroughly impressed. Service was good and the food absolutely fantastic! Yes it’s not the cheapest restaurant but you very much get what you pay for! We will certainly visit again

Met with friends for lunch which was beautifully presented and really tasty. Lovely home cooked soup to start and salmon with lovely spicy shredded vegetables - delicious. Lemon tart to finish with ice cream. This place never disappoints! Can’t wait for next visit.

Park in st David's car park or parc tawe car park. It is only a short walk from either. Do not park on Wind Street as you will likely get a ticket.
