An excellent seafood restaurant, almost on the shore in the harbour of this old 'quarry' village. Although it's more solid than its name, its whitewashed walls and chequered tablecloths give it a bistro feel.
The concise menu offers about half a dozen options at each stage and most of them relate to the sea; but there are a few options for confirmed carivores.
So expect the likes of 'Porthgain Crab Cake with a Basil and Tomato Vinaigrette'; 'Pan-Fried Fillet of local Mackerel with Parsley Insalata'; 'Deep-Fried Squid with Fresh Coriander and a Mild Chili Mayonnaise' and 'Welsh Lamb's Kidneys sautéed with Madeira and Tomatoes' among the starters.
Perhaps various varieties of 'Fish & Chips' (which can also be taken away); 'Pan-Fried local Sea Bass Fillet with Beurre Blanc'; 'Local Red Gurnard with Potato and Saffron Broth'; 'Local Welsh Black Fillet of Beef with Bearnaise Sauce' among the mains.
If you have room, you might be tempted by 'Walnut Tart with Welsh Whisky, Butterscotch Sauce and Cream'; 'Pear poached in Welsh Mead and Honey, with Chocolate Sauce' or their selection of Local Cheeses - coming with biscuits and fresh fruit.
Apart from in summer months, their opening times are complicated - so phone ahead.
