Last minute decision to eat out, didn't want to drive anywhere, Carmarthen notoriously bad for good food what to do? First choice Diablos fully booked until late as was Cafe no.4, decided to give Con Passionata a go. Had to take 6.30 booking and arriving a couple of minutes early took the staff a little by surprise as they were not quite ready for us, however we received a very warm welcome from the owners (?) and all the staff, was offered a free aperitif for our inconvenience! My son had the honey glazed figs to start which was excellent and not too sweet, followed by the herb crusted cod which was totally fresh and perfectly cooked. I had the chicken supreme on wild rice, possibly the nicest tasting chicken I have eaten in a long while. Washed down by a lovely Sauvignon blanc, complimenting the food perfectly. Dessert was sticky toffee pudding for him and a perfectly executed chocolate fondant for me. Portions are not huge here which may disappoint a lot of folk, but if you like me, prefer taste and quality over quantity give this place a try, you won't be sorry. The decor is simple and understated, the music, last night anyway, was cool vintage, creating a great ambience. Service was very good and the owner/chef made a point of visiting every table personally, which was a lovely touch. My only negative comment would be that the door issue needs addressing as a cold draft breezes through every time the door opens , maybe a small hot air blower above the door could counter that small thing. Thank you for a lovely evening.
