My wife and I visit La Memos' frequently simply because it is one of the best, if not the best, eating establihment in Port Talbot. Good food, well prepared and nicely presented by very helpful and polite staff. They have a very good menu and on Monday to Thursday evenings offer a special of two courses for £10.95.

Visited La Memo last Friday evening with my son. Even though the restaurant wasn't due to open for another 15 mins, the staff opened early for us and were very welcoming. The food is good, simple fare at a very reasonable price. The service was great; attentive and very friendly. All in all, a really enjoyable evening

There were no king prawns or mussels which did limit the choice, but regardless of that, the food wasn't to everyone liking. It seems very little effort is being made to create much of a welcoming atmosphere and the restaurant was virtually empty on a Saturday night which cant be a good sign. Better lighting, some candles and flowers on... More

This is probably the nicest place to eat in Port Talbot and we have eaten here loads of times. As a family and just as a couple. The food is always good, piping hot, and tasty, you can tell some of it is bought in. I used to work for Wetherspoons so you can tell what's what. But saying that... More

Went to eat here before going to see a show at the theatre. We ate off the weekday special menu and all of the the food we had was delicious. The staff were very busy because they had a lot of pre-show customers but despite this, and the fact that the restaurant was very busy, all of the meals we... More

To go somewhere again and again and always be rewarded by good food and friendly service is so lovely. La Memo ticks the boxes for superb taste and wonderful value for money and is a little gem that part of me wants to shout about and share (as I've done before) but another part of me wants to keep secret...

Took the wife here on our wedding anniversary, had good service and delicious food. Place was very clean and neat. My only criticism is that their desert menus were very tatty indeed. Would recommend!!

Called in for a cheap lunch the other day. It was excellent. Would definitely recommend it again. Wide range of choice for minimal costs & the lunch was gorgeous. Staff were friendly & the service was great.
