A really good Sunday lunch and I really believe in 'you pay for what you get'. The meal was not cheap or even average it was quite pricey but absolutely delicious. Hubby had the salmon and prawn starter - a huge portion (I was sorry I didn't choose it!) Grandson had the vegetarian starter some sort of cheese dish, which... More

Excellent food, great service and a good atmosphere...what's not to like?! Complimentary veg when they couldn't provide one of the requested mains was a lovely touch, even though the replacement was faultless ( the duck ! ) Will definitely return 👏 .

Excellent location with good setting in Swansea Marina. Pleasant dining room with very accommodating staff who are friendly and relaxed. Food was very good and the wine was excellent. Had not dined in the Twocann for some time and I was not disappointed as it has maintained its high standard. I must compliment the staff for their patience as my... More

I was quite impressed during my first visit to this place. My friends and I had a 3 course evening dinner with wine. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. All the dishes looked and tasted lovely, and were very artistically presented on the plate; just a little bit too much focus on style over substance for me, being a simple guy... More

In the past I have always recommended the Twocann as an excellent cafe and restaurant for food of all types and for any occasion with family and friends. Unfortunately, today was an exception I went with a group of seven friends for afternoon tea and was sadly disappointed with the quality of the food provided . The tea came from... More

Due to numbers, think the catering was well done. Service was good and waitresses very friendly and accomodating. We had a set meal ( three choices ) which was well presented although lacking in vegetables. Good value considering they were also donating some of the money to the charity. I have eaten here before and it is still of good... More

Returned again as enjoyed so much on previous visits. The food, service and ambience are of the highest level. Taking advantage of a voucher offer means we can dine at this lovely restaurant more often. Keep up the good work. The belly pork starter was exceptional.

We request to sit away from the main door as it was drafty when people in and out but was refused. Waited 15 minutes to get served. 20 minutes for the Main Course and another 45+ minutes for desserts. It would be acceptable to wait if one got plenty of time and not sitting next to the drafty main door!

Thank you for the feedback. I would imagine on your visit we were very busy otherwise we would have moved your table. I also apologise if you had to wait quite a long time between courses. We have a small kitchen and we cook to order and do our best to serve everyone in a timely manner but on some... More

£25 per head for 2 courses for a charity event...that's fine. Starter "smoked salmon with G&T sorbet" sounds good. Such a tiny portion you wouldn't believe. . Several dots of a sweet sauce, two miniscule pieces of undefinable veg (potatoes?) & a few leaves, oh yes and a mouthful of salmon. All served on a plate large enough to take... More

Thank you for your review and feedback. The starter was Smoked Salmon, Lemon infused Salsify, Pickled Cucumber, served with sorbet. It was served on large plates and you are correct, it might have seemed or looked more if we had served it on a smaller plate! The price of £25 includes a amount of money for the charity plus the...

Description
Cafe TwoCann is a cafe by day and restaurant by night. Owned and run by Catherine and Dennis Cann, the cafe has gone from strength to strength since its opening in 2007. The focus on fresh well presented food and excellent service attracts many to the prestigious Swansea waterfront development. Situated in one of the original dock buildings of SA1. Cafe TwoCann enjoys commanding views across the award winning Sail Bridge. Designed with simple elegance and modern comforts (like free WiFi), the interiors make subtle use of natural stone and wood to reflect the influences of this historical building. Cafe TwoCann has recently been included in the 2017 Good Food Guide as one of the best new entries.
