Food here is wonderful. The freshest produce cooked perfectly and served with a smile. I try to go here or to its sister restaurant in Caerleon (The Priory) every time I visit my parents in Wales. Well worth the visit. I'll keep coming back.

Had a lovely lunch yesterday - King Prawns to start - Fabulous Turbot for main course washed down with a cheeky Sav Blanc (Alan Scott New Zealand wines) Best thing was a "bit of atmosphere" at lunch time as there were plenty of people eating unlike so many places that are empty Definite recommend

Caring for a little baby (7-months old) means we have to selective where we go to eat in the evening. The staff welcomed us and gave us a table with lots of space to accommodate the car seat. We enjoyed a dish of Mussels to start and steak for the main, finished off with sticky toffee pudding and a cup... More

My partner and I settled for a low key NYE this year so we decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal. We'd been to La Marina a few years back and remembered it was beautiful so we decided to come again. The restaurant is beautiful and it really doesn't feel like you're in Wales when you look at the... More

Visited with family on very busy boxing day afternoon. As usual food was excellent but service was again quite slow. Steaks were popular choices amongst our group of 12. However I opted for the hake which was cooked to perfection and I can highly recommend.

Hugely busy - Saturday before Christmas. Very noisy as to be expected and staff rushed off their feet, but fabulous atmosphere and food was very good.

We were celebrating a birthday and had a fabulous time. The restaurant is a little different as waiters only take drinks orders, and eventually dessert...you go to a counter to select your starters and mains. The fish and meat are displayed for you and you choose what you'd like and it's all cooked fresh for you. When it came to... More
