The chunky chips served with the steaks were great but the steaks were poorly cooked, all were over cooked for what had been ordered. My fish on the other hand was really well cooked. Such a shame because is place... More

Charming fish restaurant in a historic side street in the city centre. Extremely able chef patron who handles fish and meat dishes with skill and flair. A real class act in a pleasant understated setting.

Not that many covers but lovely atmosphere. A friend and I went mid-week and still quite busy. We both enjoyed our respective choices and service was good and really friendly. We will definitely be going back!

This is my favourite restaurant in Swansea..... Love going here, the food is always superb! And although it's a small and intimate place you can't fault the service- impeccable! We return, time after time!

It may be small but its quaint and the food is ALWAYS perfect, you do need to book as its very popular but well worth a visit... the service is friendly but it's not light on the pocket unless you have a lunchtime set menu which is the same quality. Can highly recommend.

Along with a few colleagues from work, I went to the Chelsea Cafe (Hanson's) for a Christmas Lunch. I had never been here before, but had been told great things about it. When I arrived I was shocked to see how small the restaurant was, considering how popular it was meant to be. We had pre-ordered our food and once... More
