The cafe is well hidden within the former police station. Service is a bit slow for a lunch time (this is close to my friends place of work), the coffee is very strong. The atmosphere is relaxed.

The atmosphere is a little formal, but there's plenty of art to ponder over in this lovely setting. The service is excellent, staff are attentive and friendly. The food is a pricer than other places nearby, but not overly expensive for a special occassion. The food is well cooked, prettily presented and the menu is varied. The menu does change... More

Visited with about 20 work colleagues for Christmas lunch. Over cooked potatoes, undercooked "pigs in blankets", unpleasantly sweet stuffing heaped on top of the turkey which completely spoiled the taste of the meat, strangest tasting trifle I've ever had. I have eaten here before and the food has been ok- maybe they can't cater for larger parties?

Hi Roselin, Apologies that you did not enjoy your Christmas lunch with us, it is a great shame as we have had a large volume of guests this year for Christmas lunch and all have enjoyed, especially the Turkey and the large portions, which they have found excellent value for money at £15.95 for 3 courses. I appreciate that the... More

It took them 15minutes to make my deluxe chocolate the staff talk to much and you have a tepid drink. Luckily for us we will not be coming as we have found a friendly cafe down the rd.

Gwalia_Comms, Manager at Tapestri, responded to this review

Hi Michelle, many thanks for your review, I would appreciate some further information if possible as we do not have a chocolate deluxe product, are you perhaps confusing us with a different venue? Our Hot chocolate is £1.80 and with the Swansea discount card comes to £1.50 so when compared with other venues for food and drink we are very... More

Went here on Saturday evening with friends and what a hidden gem this restaurant is. Thought long and hard about placing a review due to the fact that more people will realise about it. The food ordered was from the current Christmas menu, which has a very good selection. We all had different starters which were all perfect, for main... More

We arrived at 830pm on a Friday and very surprised to find that the place wasn't serving food as the chef had been sent home! Maybe lunch is better

I have eaten here in several formal dinners and the food has always been excellent. I went there last week with a few friends and the food was superb. This must be one of Swansea's hidden secrets as the entrance to the rstaurant is not obvious especially in the evening. i would definatly go here again

This was only a lunch time snack so a better review will be forthcoming when I've tried the Bistro side of the establishment. Saying that it was quite good on the cafe side of things. A very good choice across both meat and veggie options. I had the 'Fish and Chips' which was cod but I'd say an Unidentified Frying... More

Attended this restaurant as part of a works event - there were about 17 of us... The restaurant is well decorated and the outside seating area was lovely for pre-dinner drinks. The service was good too. The food itself was fantastic - for starters I had the mussels (a significant bowl full with creamy sauce, and a nice kick), for... More
