Owner's description

Blas Restaurant is located at Wales' first contemporary art hotel, Twr y Felin, in St Davids, Pembrokeshire. Meaning ‘Taste’ in Welsh – Blas offers a menu influenced by the season and locality, with dishes designed to reflect Wales and its produce. From fresh seafood and fish to Welsh lamb and beef, dishes at Blas are designed to offer diners a true culinary experience.

The menu is varied and thoughtfully designed, with daily changes based on the most available locally sourced and in season ingredients. Head Chef Simon Coe is also passionate about using foraged ingredients, of which there is an abundance in the local hedgerows and on nearby beaches.
