“this resturant is very very good”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

this resturant is good for the public, and the food is generous, but the prices are very expensive, and l was a little dissapointed that over five years ago that for the four of us it costs us £100.00 ouch but the food was delicious.

My family and I (2 adults 3 kids under 12) visited Castellamare cafe bar today. I felt compelled to write about our experience. It was a complete disappointment, the service was awful, the food basic and overpriced. The waitresses and staff couldn't raise a smile and were disinterested in the customers, to the point of rudeness. We shall not be returning.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We love eating here, the food is excellent, and the staff are very friendly. But its very expensive, so we only go there on special occasions.

“Lasagne just like an Italian Mamma made it!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

A regular monthly visit to the restaurant with some of the best views on this part of the coast means, usually, a stock order for a slab of lasagne preceded by breads with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and accompanied by a cold Peronni or glass of something red!

Best to book during early evening and especially at weekends but through the winter months it is usually possible just to stroll up and enjoy the views whilst waiting for classic Italian fare. The meatballs are excellent, the pizzas and calzoni equally good and service comes with a smile.

Evening parking is free but up to that time there are meter charges to be paid.

Adjacent play area for small children and adjoining café for snacks and less formal eating, with outside seating and a Gower Breakfast (Full) that is not for the faint-hearted nibbler!
