“In this tiny village on the west coast of Wales” (where “an industrial archeologist would have a field day!” given the ex-quarry machinery by the quay), this “top-notch fish-focused bistro” in a modest building can seem an “amazing” find. “Up to 10 different fish accompanying the most wonderful chips” can be preceded by “fantastic large prawns, langoustines, and marinated cockles”. “On a fine day, sit on the harbour wall” and “enjoy it in the open air”.

“Set in a gorgeous spot looking out over the harbour in a surprisingly unspoilt village” – this “small bistro” is one of the better options for a meal in striking distance of St Davids: you get “sophisticated dishes of fresh-from-the-sea fish, plus friendly staff and a quaint ambience”. Fish ’n’ chips, here, are also some of the best: “melt in the mouth, crispy, light batter with the freshest of fish”.

“Idyllically located, right on the harbour at Porthgain, this “very rustic but charmingly so” bistro is “always friendly” and has a “simple and relaxed atmosphere”. It serves “fish as fresh as you’ll find: everything from traditional, wonderfully crisp and crunchy fish ’n’ chips to imaginatively prepared and delicious dishes” (e.g. “the best monkfish stew ever”). Sit outside in the summer overlooking the water”.

"Stellar service and food made for a fun post chough-spotting walk indulgence. Freshest of fish, plumpest of mackeral, stacks of hot chips, salad sides. Absolutely loved it and so pleased to find it back open properly post lockdowns."
