Excellent food

Modern Bistro style cuisine, excellent quality food, well presented & cooked. This restaurant is, in my opinion, probably on a par, if not better than another well known restaurant in the town.

The food and the staff at the Blue Ball in Tenby are wonderful. There were I'd adults and five kids. Every one was delighted with their meal. I had golden onion soup with apple and celeriac for starter followed by Welsh shoulder of lamb for main. Pudding was apple and blackberry crumble with creme anglaise and a dollop of vanilla... More

Surprisingly busy for a Wednesday night in February - "Happy Hour" reduction probably helped. I had Curried Cream of Cauliflower Soup (extra marks for alliteration) followed by Faggots in a delicious gravy. (Obvious opportunity here for a joke about Welsh Faggots but I'll let it pass) My wife had Sea Bass and we shared a plateful of Pancakes to finish... More

Visited during mid February whilst staying in Tenby due to business. Having visited it last year and being aware of its excellent rating, I decided to revisit the restaurant. I had calamari and prawns starter (£7) which was tasty. Served with a nice little salad and aoili & sweet chilli sauce dips. Batter was crisp and the squid was tender... More

We had a fantastic three course Sunday Lunch at this restaurant, the staff were as always friendly and helpful, and the price of the three course was well worth it. The best part was the food 10/10 for flavour. We have dined their on a Saturday evening too, and the food has always been exceptional as well as the presentation,... More

Very welcoming atmosphere, friendly attentive staff, we have visited before and opted for the beef which was outstanding, this time we opted for the lamb and wasn't disappointed, absolutely faultless. Will definitely be back.

Went there during a mid week trip to the area. Ordered lamb faggots which were very good and the gravy was thick and meaty! My partner ordered thai chicken which she said was bursting with flavour! The portions were ample. Good atmosphere in the restaurant as well. Lovely fire too!

Great meal at the blue ball , I had the tuna cooked to perfection. We have been regulars in TENBY for many years but never visited the blue ball shame on us. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, great menu but as always in TENBY the customer service could be better, if Not for tourism in the area there would be no jobs.... More

My in laws took us here on our last day in Wales. Being a staurday evening it was very busy so there was a bit of a wait for a table. The young man with glasses was very welcoming though & after he explained the situation we didn't mind. The food was definitely worth the wait though. Beautifully presented with... More
