“a wonderful dining experience!”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We were so lucky to get a cancellation. . walked in off of the street and they had us seated within 5 minutes. It was a total surprise in this small town to find such a wonderful gourmet experience. We fell in love with the small town of St. David's and this was a great part of the experience. I plan on recreating the salad with avocado starter and all of the food was excellent. Loved the ambiance with all the contemporary books and you could tell the owner loved their book collection. We hope to come back to St. Davids and a visit to Cwtch is a necessity!!

Great to hear that we could accommodate you and thank you so much for such lovely feedback! The smoked chicken and avocado salad is a new visitor to our menu so wonderful to hear you enjoyed it so much. We adore our little restaurant and love it when guests peruse the array of welsh and foodie books. Hopefully see you again on your next visit! Best regards from all at cwtch*

“Excellent.”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Excellent food and service. Fixed price menus also favored by us, as when being treated everyone feels happy to pick exactly what they want as opposed to being conscious of the cost . Great to see Sewin on the menu which was delicious. Only criticism would be, to have been given more time to finish aperitif before starters were served. Highly recommended. Definitely will return when next in St David's.

Thank you for such lovely feedback. We take comfort in knowing that when guests come in they know exactly how much their meals will cost them. We adore this time of year as there is such an abundance of wonderful Pembrokeshire produce and the Sewin is an absolute delight. Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and hope to see you soon! Best regards from all at cwtch*

Clever arrangement of tables meant that although close together, it never felt that you were in the middle of someone elses conversation. Food was great, loved the potted crab starter; atmosphere/ buzz very good and lovely service. Next time we are in Pembtokeshire, we will be heafinh here. Thank you!

“Trusted taste-merchants”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

The Cwtch serves imaginative, well-presented dinners to those lucky enough to get a table at this central St.Davids restaurant. Booking is strongly advised in summer, and recommended at any time of year, and the best bet if they're busy and you are prepared to be flexible is to catch their early bird menu then watch the sunset from the beach. Vegetarian dinner dishes are the best in the city.
