Our company's Christmas lunch today was my first visit to the Castellamare, selected for us by one of our two resident Italians who both know a thing or two about Italian food. A force 9 severe gale was raging over Swansea Bay and the stunning view of the wild sea made a fantastic backdrop to our enjoyable meal. From the... More

have eaten here 4 times since the Summer and have had nothing but superb service and excellent food. I accept not the cheapest food in Swansea but when you combine the location, the staff ( which in our experience has been superb - if a little 'buried' on a Friday or Saturday ) and the Seafood Marinara ( specialty of...

Good standard Italian food, tasty, good variety on menu but quite expensive even for this area. Service good. View over bay is wonderful. Atmosphere is buoyant at weekends and adjoining cafe bar is great for an informal coffee and chat.

We've ate at this resturant several times over the last few years and we're always impressed with the food. The location is beautifull and the resturant itself has a lovely warm ambience. the service is good and we are sure to return again. Only down side is it is more expensive than other italian resturants in swansea.

Have been there several times for family lunchtime birthday meals. Over twenty of us turn up and we always get a great meal. The two course special board offers a wide selection of food at a great price. Although we are a large group and there are many other people in the restaurant we always have good service and all...

Apart from the stunning views this restaurant has little going for it. The waiter we had made it very plain that he wasn't enjoying his work. It took forever to take our order which was followed by the food arriving almost instantaneously - suggesting the food had already been prepared on mass and was just being churned out. Alas, the...

Please note this is the restaurant and not the café area which seemed to be very busy. We recently ate at Castellmare as a birthday treat for my husband. We were so disappointed with the food. I am on a very strict diet for health reasons and when I requested boiled/jacket potatoes I was looked at as if I had... More

Extensive Pay and Display Car Parking, overlooking Mumbles Lighthouse and the Bay. I tend to use the restaurant at Lunchtimes, as I find the views so relaxing and the lunchtime menu, good value and good quality. I would advise to prebook and request a seaview, I have found they will do their best to accommodate you. The different bread rolls,... More
