“A disappointing experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Stumbled across this place on a Sunday lunchtime. Looked charming from the outside. Too many bad things - our table was dirty, and the waiter didn't offer to clean it. We counted 4 dead wasps on the large, dusty window sill next to our table. Ordered sandwiches, which were served with 2 Pringes, which weren't fresh. There was only one other table occupied, yet the waiter took a while to take our order. Food was quite bland but filled a hole. Will not hurry back, regretfully. If they got the basics right, this place could be winner, in such a good location. Not the best £20 spent.

“Super lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Another delicious lunch at this charming place - this time the most tasteful salmon fishcakes with salad. All meals are cooked to order and the service as always was fantastic. Looking foward to visiting again.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Wow. We visited the restaurant in the evening during our visit to Laugharne. Both had a starter and a main, shared a dessert and a bottle of wine and coffees to finish. Well every bite was perfect. Gorgeous Calamari and rolls of courgette to start, then both had tasty pasta with a fresh side salad to share. Wine was lovely and the tiramisu was delicious; coffee flavour wasn't overpowering and it wasn't too sweet. Both huge fans of Italian food and this was the nicest we've had! Service was fab and good value for money. Yes, you may have to wait a bit longer for each course, but smelling the aromas coming from the kitchen lets you know it's worth the wait. If we're in the area again we will be returning!

“What a find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We were staying in Laugharne for one night en route to Fishguard. While walking round the towns looking for a place to eat we met Amir outside his restaurant. After chatting to him we decided to go back that evening for dinner. We were so pleased that we did. He cooks with a passion, and takes delight from the customers enjoyment. In true Italian tradition he takes as much care with the sourcing of his food as with his preparation. We ate a large plate of calamari in a light crispy tempura batter, a perfectly dressed and seasoned salad, and sea bass. Everything was fantastic. If we lived closer we would visit regularly. A wonderful eating experience.

“A gem of a restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Despite it being well after 10pm one night and the restaurant on the point of closing, we were welcomed in and shown amazing hospitality. The owner interrupted his own meal in order to prepare a fantastic pasta dish. We were so impressed with the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff that we returned the following evening for yet more fantastic food. My risotto was the best I've ever tasted. The owner is obviously so passionate about his food and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
