This could be such a lovely place to relax, watch the sea and eat, BUT (yes, it is a big but), having asked for an umbrella to be opened up over our table on a scorchingly hot day, only to be told it was too much effort and we would have to share a shaded table with other people or "suffer" (yes, those were his exact words!) our family will never eat here again.

I am really sorry you took my remarks so seriously. To open the parasols with winter covers on, requires 2 members of staff, a 20 foot ladder and a considerable amount of time. I suggested you could share one of the other 8 tables under the 2 open parasols, you said you'd rather not share. At this time I thought everthing was fine and the atmosphere was jolly, so I, in a light hearted manner, commented that if you did'nt want to share then suffer. I am very sorry I misread your attitude, I meant no disrespect and I am sorry you misread my intentions.

Overpriced food and drinks, especially for the coffees- the foam of their latte was of an almost comical standard. Huge variations throughout.

It's a shame that Me Franco has such a monopoly on the seafront. Competition is very much needed.

I fully agree that Aberavon needs more private investment it can only help the area and employment, lets hope that there are some enterprising people out there.

I called into Remo's with my parents yesterday, and what a pleasant surprise. The food was tasty, hot chocolate the best I have tasted in years, and the service second to none. The place was packed and it was easy to see why. It is well staffed and you are served quickly. Big thanks to Thomas who ensured everything was spot on for us. Also, the owner was at hand which is a rarity in this culture of fast food franchises. Will be visiting here come rain or shine.
