have eaten here 4 times since the Summer and have had nothing but superb service and excellent food. I accept not the cheapest food in Swansea but when you combine the location, the staff ( which in our experience has been superb - if a little 'buried' on a Friday or Saturday ) and the Seafood Marinara ( specialty of the house ) which I deem unbeatable and their bread 'bits' as and own olive oil...well it's ..unbeatable !

OK they could do with having bibs if you're wearing a white shirt ( I've made the point on each occasion :-)

Good standard Italian food, tasty, good variety on menu but quite expensive even for this area. Service good. View over bay is wonderful. Atmosphere is buoyant at weekends and adjoining cafe bar is great for an informal coffee and chat.

We've ate at this resturant several times over the last few years and we're always impressed with the food. The location is beautifull and the resturant itself has a lovely warm ambience. the service is good and we are sure to return again. Only down side is it is more expensive than other italian resturants in swansea.

Have been there several times for family lunchtime birthday meals. Over twenty of us turn up and we always get a great meal. The two course special board offers a wide selection of food at a great price.

Although we are a large group and there are many other people in the restaurant we always have good service and all the meals arrive on time and cooked as requested.

The views are always spectacular whether it be a glorious sunny day or blowing a gale.

Ample car parking is available and you can either work up an appetite by walking along the glorious Gower coastal path before your meal, or stretch your legs afterwards.

Really can't fault the food, location, staff, service or the price.
