My wife and I visited the restaurant on Aug 15 2014. We often visit Carmarthen and we call in here for lunch or Coffee. This is how a place should be we sit down and within minutes along comes a smiling face to take your order. It has that old world charm that is missing in most places these days.... More

A very good menu with lots of delicious choices- you'll find it hard to choose! Good home-cooked meals and extremely friendly staff. Really helpful with our young baby. A must for anyone in the area!

We recently visited this restaurant on a day out in Carmarthen. It was a little out of the way but well worth the effort to find. We were served promptly by friendly and helpful staff. The food was gorgeous. I had the lasagne and my partner had the chicken and leek pie. Both were well made with good quality and... More

I came here for a meal with my husband and enjoyed. The food is homemade and tastes wonderful and the portion sizes are massive! The only downfall is you pay more as I guess you get what you pay for. Nice to do on special occasions but I couldn't afford to do it more than that. Overall lovely place to... More

I had never been before and wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. I had the salmon in cream sauce with curly fries. The salmon was gorgeous and the whole meal was lovely. Great portion of curly fries too :) didn't have room for pudding but they looked amazing! Will be back

From their hearty breakfasts to nice freshly-cooked main meals, I've never been let down by Caban. It's quite hidden away in Mansel St, and the exterior implies a small traditional café but inside it is cavernous and goes on and on in a series of eating chambers! The portions are always impressive, and there are a variety of meals and... More
