We very rarely get a night out with having two kids and me working nights. So when we do we have come here the last few times and still enjoy it. Started by having a drink on the terrace over looking the bay. After ordering the bread and starters didn't take long and the waiting staff were friendly... read more

Following our latest two visits I had a troubled tummy. By comparing My wife's choices against mine it was clearly the salad & greens which Betty had not touched. Also her Salmon was cooked hard & she wishes she had sent it back.

Saturday evening table of 2. Staff very attentive, fast service. Able to have an aperitif before meal at bar. Food was delicious. Oysters were fresh and juicy, definitely a must if you enjoy shellfish and seafood. Treated like royalty. Really appreciated the menu knowledge of the bar/ waiting staff. Best to book in advance. Definitely be back!

Visited the restaurant on the first floor a couple of times but this was the first visit to El Puerto on the ground floor of Custom House. The priory in Caerleon is a sister restaurant and El Puerto needs to speak to them about customer service and food quality. Very slow service and a bit of a mix up with... More

I love this place and everything about it. This is one classy place but with a nice relaxed environment. Amazing food and wine, the only place I enjoy medium done steak which cuts like butter and melts in your mouth. Simply Amazing.

Went for my birthday and there were 6 of us in total we all had fillet steak and I have to say they were exceptional. They were cooked to perfection service was excellent lovely atmosphere no rushing us once we finished and I would be back in a flash.
