Featured Swansea Restaurants
British, Modern restaurant in Reynoldston
Owned by wedding specialists Oldwalls since November 2016, this small (but expanding) restaurant-with-rooms occupies a grade II manor house, beautifully set in a remote corner of the Gower peninsula. Feedback is limited, but very positive on its cuisine, which makes a feature of Welsh sourcing.
Italian restaurant in Mumbles Road
Bracelet Bay - SA3
2016 Review: A stunning venue looking out over the sea and the Mumbles lighthouse which continues to achieve high marks for its Italian fare (served in gigantic portions).
. Didier And Stephanie
French restaurant in Swansea
56 Saint Helen's Rd - SA1
2017 Review: Gallic cuisine thats good, and good value for money wins praise for Didier Suvé and Stephanie Danvels city-centre outfit (although the ambience of this tiny, 20-seat room, took some flak this year).
. Hanson At The Chelsea Restaurant
British, Modern restaurant in Swansea
17 St Marys St - SA1
Chef Andrew Hansons staple remains a superior option locally (better than most in central Swansea) thanks to its good menu and proper dishes, often revolving around fish and seafood. Upstairs is preferred to the basement.
. The Kardomah
Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Swansea
11 Portland St - SA1
2016 Review: Boasting associations with Dylan Thomas a central coffee-house relic, with splendid, 50s-tastic décor. Well-brewed coffee is its best gastronomic feature, but for a cheap n cheerful fill-up, its very long menu is well-realised, and comes at nostalgic prices.
Pizza restaurant in Swansea
40 Castle St - SA1
For the first 20 years of this guide, this famous pizza chain with its surprisingly distinctive branches was with tedious regularity the surveys most mentioned group: constantly re-inventing itself to remain everyones favourite standby, especially with kids in tow. Competition is sharper nowadays however, and since its ownership changed a couple of years ago (to Hony Capital) ratings and the volume of feedback have slipped well below their historical average. Yes, it is still much-mentioned, and still as reliable as ever to armies of loyal supporters, but harsher critics are stunned by the complacency and staleness of the brand: even the ubiquitous, good value voucher deals are starting to lose their shine.
