Here last week and again today, can not fault the food! We had tapas tonight, the lamb cutlets are do die for! We had 8 dishes and cannot find fault in any of them! Think it’s going to be a Thursday evening event every week...

Lovely family meal in the basement of the restaurant. As we were a large party we pre-ordered so everything was served promptly and piping hot 😀 The prices were very reasonable and a good selection. Something for everyone. There wasn't a dedicated children's menu, but...More

First visit but certainly wont be the last. Could not fault anything to be honest including value for money. The service was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble. Food was superb. Heard they have great deals in the week. Would definitely recommend.

Although I'm a regular here for a Wednesday night beer, this was my first go at the tapas - really tasty and excellent service as always. Good value as well.

Now I'm not sure that I really want to publicise this restaurant too much. I like it the way it is, "Perfect" The food is wonderful, great atmosphere and really friendly staff. Probably my favourite venue in Swansea. Great for drinks, snacks and meals. Excellent!

Funny little place, The ground floor is basically a pub with a couple of tables. Downstairs, which is ground floor at the back is a little restaurant. Nice and clean, food was good, service was good and the beer was fine

My mum, brother and I randomly visited here on a Sunday night. Small, out of the way place that's definitely worth a visit. The best part was definitely the service. There was only one guy in there running the bar, taking orders, delivery food and...More

I visited this charming restaurant yesterday with my husband. We were lucky to be seated quickly as the restaurant was quite busy and it was only 6pm on a Wednesday!! (It's probably a good idea to make a reservation in advance to avoid possible disappointment.)...More
