SWANSEA MARINA'S BEST RESTAURANTS
Swansea marina is a great place to take a leisurely stroll and admire the bobbing boats on the water, but it is also a brilliant spot for wining and dining. Our very own Dragon Brasserie and Cafe Bar is perfect for casual dining, but here is our pick of the best rest to try in the marina:
GALLINIS BRASSERIE, UNIT 3, FISHMARKET QUAY, SA1 1UP
Gallinis is the home to contemporary fine dining in Swansea marina. Under new ownership since March 2013, the restaurant has thrived with new dishes and innovative ideas. But it still maintains the classic favourites, prepared by long-time employee Guiseppe.
The menu is mainly Italian, with flares of other European dishes and fresh locally caught fish. And is a favourite dining place for Swansea City FC players among other celebrities.
PANSHEE, 29 SINGLETON STREET, SA1 3QN
Panshee combines traditional Indian cuisine with a modern flare, in the contemporary surroundings in the heart of Swansea. You’ll be spoilt for choice with the menu here, and it’s affordable too! Whether you love a hot and spicy vindaloo or you’re more of a korma kind of person, there’s a dish for you.
THE GRAPE AND OLIVE, MERIDIAN TOWER, SA1 1JW
If you are looking for drinks and dining with a panoramic view of Swansea bay then there is nowhere better than the Grape & Olive at the top of one of the tallest buildings in Wales.
The Grape & Olive believe in using only the finest quality ingredients, so you can expect a hearty meal; almost as good as the view!
LA FINA, 33 KINGSWAY, SA1 5LE
Step away from the modern marina and escape to the rustic charms that is La Fina, a Spanish restaurant in Swansea. Sit underneath timber beams among Mediterranean décor, and enjoy a myriad of tapas dishes or their famous ‘espetada’ specials. Finish off with a brownie or the sticky toffee pudding for a fabulous sweet treat.
SHANG RESTAURANT & CLUB, 18-22 ANCHOR CY, MARITIME QUARTER, SA1 3XA
For a taste of the orient and a sea view head down to the Shang Restaurant & Club on the waterfront. Whether you opt for the a la carte menu or enjoy the large buffet choice, this is a great location for an evening meal.
Try to get a seat in the glass conservatory for the best views!
SALENTO RISTORIANTE, PILOT HOUSE WARF, SA1 1UN
This is a unique Italian restaurant, which takes its influence from the Apulia Region of Southern Italy. Salento has fish and lobster delivered every day from the fishermen that sail out across the bay, giving you the freshest locally sourced food in the area.
Share in the traditions of this family-run restaurant with a good hearty meal and a large glass of wine, under great service.
Do any of these restaurants take your fancy? They’re the best Swansea marina restaurants on offer!
