We had a wnderfull night on Weds . The Cocktails were wonderfull and the canapes fantastic. This is a massive addition to life in St Davids. The food is imaginative and everything has a local and seaweed slant . Everything is original and beautifully presented . Authentic and imaginative. Well Done.

Thank you so much Daniel. It means such a lot to the staff to hear how successful their efforts have been and how much they are appreciated by our clients. Totally agree with you about the massive addition to the life of St Davids. Hopefully we complement all the other eating establishments in our tiny city.

Booked a table for three at 6pm and were looking forward to this special experience foraged food canapés all day.
I will deal with the positives first:-
1/ Friendly, knowledgeable & enthusiastic staff.
2/ Clean & tidy

The negatives:-
1/ Very small portions and left restaurant still feeling hungry.
2/ Doesn’t warrant £20 a head

Our apology for not making it clear before your visit that canapés are small taster experiences rather than a full meal offering. Clearly your expectations were not met on this occasion. Perhaps you would like to book for our full restaurant menu on Friday or Saturday evening when we are sure you will be suitably satiated. Your comment on the pricing is unfortunately not realistic and we actually make a loss at that price and on your next visit will give you a complete breakdown. At least our staff felt their efforts, passion for the wild and personal hygiene were suitably recognised.

Had dinner here thankfully we had booked a table. From the minute you walked in it was fantastic welcome and service. Food was delicious and freshly prepared. A little more expensive but you get what you pay for - fresh, fabulous food and all local

Well worth a visit for a lovely evening out with a bit of an introduction to how exciting foraging can be. The canapés were very tasty and the presentation was elegant and interesting. The cocktails were the bomb! Loved them so much that I had to buy some of the various spirits etc in the shop the following day!

Glad to see you enjoyed our evening out with a difference. I'm not sure who enjoys these evening the most - our visitors or the staff! They are all so keen to show how creative we can be and how so in tune with the environment around us. Looking forward to seeing you again with a few more surprises.

Absolutely loved this restaurant! Amazing food and a great atmosphere.

I particularly love that some of their ingredients are hand picked from in, and around St Davids. Also, great to see someone supporting local suppliers!

Well worth a visit.
