Before making a trip from Pembrokeshire to Swansea for a reunion lunch with my sister, i came upon M-Bar as reviewed in TripAdvisor. We were a party of 4 and were thoroughly delighted with our experience. Greeted by friendly... More

My husband and I called in while shopping and were not disappointed. My Italian Chicken was very tasty and my husband's beef bourguignon was melt in the mouth. Would definitely go back thoroughly enjoyed.

I would never have have even known about this place as its tucked away upstairs in a shop that quite frankly I can't afford to breathe in. But hearing such good reviews made me curious to wander in and give it a go. Such a warm welcome was offered and there was plenty of choice on the menu, deciding what... More

Again, M Bar did not disappoint. Lovely welcome, followed by delicious food. The lamb shank was superb, and my dining guest enjoyed the hake very much. What a talented chef! Service was friendly and courteous. I shall keep on spreading the word about this place.

Saturday afternoon, tired legs and armed with shopping, my friend and I decided that lunch was needed to refuel and chat. Both of us had heard from 2 separate parties that this place was really lovely so we thought we would give it a go. We climbed the stairs of Moda, looked at the beautiful clothes then headed in to...

We recently visited the M-Bar in Swansea, Wales. It is located in a clothing boutique, MODA. We were there on two occasions and both times the food was terrific, the wait staff lovely, the atmosphere comfortable and clean. The menu has a nice selection. We felt we were in a very private atmosphere. It is the "best kept secret" in... More
