I love Swansea RSL. It has a great variety of food and also caters for "difficult" people like me "Vegetarians". And the view is magnificent.

We went to the RSl with a group on a Friday night and found the food was honest and of ample proportions. The catering staff point of sale was not so helpful and her attitude dampened our night. During the day this would have fantastic views.

A great venue with beautiful views and great staff let down by average food. When the restaurant was open upstairs it was much better but they need to get a better menu and someone who cares about food. Then it will be sensational
