I presume this is the one we went to actually in Llansteffan near Carmarthen. It is only open on Fridays and Saturdays and is run entirely by Big Bill and his wife. Bill does the cooking and comes out and chats in between while his wife does the rest. Everything is made on the premises, comes from the garden or... More

Goodness knows where the Closed note came from, it's very definitely open (Fridays and Saturdays only) and a great dining experience.

We booked a table at Yr Hen Dafarn following a recommendation from a local lady we met whilst walking the dog on Ferryside beach. She told us that it was the best food in the area and she was not wrong! We were a party of 4 adults and 3 teens, and found the welcome, atmosphere and above all, the... More

This little place is in Llansteffan which is slightly off the beaten track but so worth the effort. We had a wonderful dinner there last night. The four of us ordered something different and we were not disappointed. Big Bill serves great food and plenty of it. You will not be disappointed and you won't go hungry. The quality and... More

Had an amazing time with the family in this restaurant, food was amazing, and cooked just the way you want it, friendly staff and an excellent selection of wines and other drinks for anyone. A ten out of ten dining experience and well worth a long journey

We have been here many times, but we always remember the first time we came: my wife order a mixed seafood platter; Bill was not satisfied with the huge plate he order brought to her, and came back with some more crab meat in another small plate few minutes after! We could not fit the food on the table. Quality... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time recently. My word. How have I never been there before. We did the mistake of getting starters. We should never have ordered the started. Although the starter was great. But it was too much food. Yes, it is fairly expensive. But considering how much we had. It was pretty good value.... More

Wonderful food. Big Bill is a great character. His wife is charming and slightly deaf! The initial welcome is as others describe, like having a meal in a friends house! Don't expect fawning service but do expect fantastic food of the freshest ingredients served in generous portions. We spent two nights in Llansteffan and ate there both nights. Bill and... More
