We found this on the internet by chance and it looked convenient to eat here after a long drive from England to see the rugby. Arrived mid afternoon on a Saturday and it was easy to find and plenty of space. It has the most amazing panoramic views of wind swept marshes with golf links populated by... read more

My daughter is 40 today so my sister in law and myself joined her and her friends for lunch . I live locally and over the last year or two the meals here can be very hit or miss . I heard there was a new chef and menu and that the meals were enjoyable now, so we gave it... More

I visited here today with 4 friends, we sat in the restaurant, two of us ate from the set menu, I chose chickpea and butternut squash tagine, which was excellent, I have eaten here many times, mainly in the bar area, and always enjoy the food, which is well presented too. What I like about eating here is that you... More

Whenever I have family and friends visiting me in Llanelli, breakfast is a must at Monk's. The staff are always really friendly and helpful and the view is simply one of the best in this part of Wales. The food is always good and the kitchen will are very adaptable to cater for everybody's needs

The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who lives locally so we decided to try it for a midweek lunch on a recent visit to this lovely area. The setting is quite delightful with distant views out to the estuary. The ambience is nicely relaxed (particularly bearing in mind the restaurant is situated in a golf course club... More

Returned to meet friends today, thought it can't be as bad as it previously was, oh how I was wrong, they've managed to surpass themselves and take it to a whole new level. An afternoon spoiled by rude staff who think that this place is something special, that you're doing them a favour by being there and why on earth... More
