Booked for 4 of us and our dog @20:00 hrs. Arrived as we booked and sort a table by helping ourselves outside as no one even knew we booked! That was a good start though. 31 minutes later we managed to order drinks. We were...told that someone else will come and get the food order as we were ready by then. Waited for a while then order is taken but only the starters as the waitress said, they need to come back for the main order. Time was 9:10 by then. Checked few times by walking in if we would have our starters at least??? Eventually cut the deal (!) to have our starters and the main courses at the same time. One of the starter was wrong but we did not dare to ask someone to replace it!!! We were served around 22:15. Had our meals paid the bill and left with the thoughts of sharing this to be ready what you may get. Only one lady behind the bar unwillingly said “sorry” what happened. But we felt very sorry how they run the business. So never and ever again. Full stop.More

I visited this wonderful restaurant for the first time last night and can't sing its praises enough. Everything was wonderful from the ambience, the staff, the service and most importantly, the food. There were four of us and even though the portions were of a...good size, nobody left a morsel on their plates, it was all so delicious. Cannelloni is one of my favourite meals and this really stepped up to the mark of being one of the best I have tasted EVER! Very disappointed to be reading some of these negative reviews, it makes me wonder if some people just like a good old moan as a result of the pandemic? Some restaurants have been closed for over a year and re-opening during the tail end of a pandemic can be a tricky balancing act, trying to give good service while at the same time taking into account the personal safety of the staff and the safety of their customers. A little patience would not go amiss during these trying times. If you have an issue, take it up with the management rather than writing a rotten review. My friends and I are looking forward to our next visit. There were so many choices on the menu, it was difficult to decide what to have, in fact I think a few more visits are in order so that everything can be sampled. well done to all the staff.More

A wonderful Mediterranean restaurant snuggled in Skewen… I love this restaurant, a great menu and the food was superb, service could be quicker but good things come to those that wait. It’s a busy restaurant and that speaks volumes.

Booked a table with 2 friends for dinner at 7.30pm but were asked to wait in the bar until 8.10pm for our table. Once at our table we waited until 8.30pm to place our order and had to ask numerous times for drinks and water...which appeared to be forgotten. Our starters arrived at 9pm and were very nice apart from the sardines which my partner ordered. He was given 3 tiny sardines costing £6.95! At 10pm we had still not received our main course and had to inform the staff that we had been there for 2.5 hours! Our mains eventually arrived at 10.10pm and were ok apart from the risotto which I was unable to eat as it was very greasy. The staff did apologise for the wait but it was half hearted and apparently due to being short staffed. This was our second visit and we enjoyed the first time but this experience has put me off going again at the weekend.More

We arrived at 7pm it started so well . Starters arrived lovely good portions . Mains arrived and again nice food . Then table to the left missing side orders table to the right gave up waiting for the bill, asked to pay were told...two mins. waitress then never came back after they waited a while they gave up and went looking . We waited over half hour to order dessert waitress seemed confused but read back the order it was correct , when they eventually arrived there was only 3 out of 4 . We ask for the fourth it didn’t come table to the left is still waiting for his side order and now a beer . Table beyond him have waited two hours for their main course. We ask again for our missing desert eventually it arrives after the other 3 have been eaten . We ask for the bill tall waiter walks away and cleans tables , takes orders, never returns with our bill after waiting half hour we give up and go and pay at the bar . To the tall waiter really should you be lifting your visor when carrying food or when taking orders or just when you feel like NO !!! Food great, staff poorly trained confused and sloppy and indifferent we were never asked if everything was alright or if we had enjoyed our food we were never offered second drinks . We understand this is a Spanish / Italian but it’s taking mañana to the extreme .More

Just visited the restaurant again, first time we went was for a belated staff Christmas meal. The food and the service provided was excellent. The serving staff and the management cant do enough for you to ensure you have a lovely experience. Large king prawns...served with garlic butter and wine, was so tasty you need to have bread to mop up the sauce afterwards, the fillet steak was tender and flavoursome - get the blue cheese sauce to dip in too. Nice Spanish atmosphere with the music in the background and the barrels around. Covid safe procedures in place and track and trace taken. All staff members wearing face visors. Felt very safe and full once left. Best to make a booking in advance as this place can get very busy. Delicious 😋More

The appearance of the restaurant is lovely and you feel relaxed on arrival. The restaurant is spacious and felt very comfortable in the strange Covid times we find ourselves in. All the staff and very friendly and attentive with Covid precautions taken at all times....The menu has a great selection for all and the food was delicious. All arrived in a timely but not rushed. We all really enjoyed and will definitely return. Thanks to all the staff, lovely evening had by all.More

I doubt it. I went there tonight and was assured my meal was vegan yet it came covered in dairy cheese :( so even if they “said” it was gluten free, unfortunately I wouldn’t trust this.
