                                    First visit to the Blas Restaurant. The hotel itself is impressive - the art especially. However staff who were very pleasant I think need further work. I thought we were left a bit too long in the bar area after ordering food choices and drinking cocktails - the restaurant was not overly busy. Staff seemed disorganised - bar staff missing(?) and then another customer could not have the gin she wanted as the bottle on the shelf was empty and had not been replaced. For a hotel of this standard this needs improving. Food when it came was nicely presented.

                                    Holiday dinner with our children - as usual this was an outstanding dinner with knock out service!!!! Great to come back a year later and the standards to be as high as we remembered!

                                    A beautiful building with outstanding décor and romantic, ambient lighting. The staff were polite, attentive and courteous, and service was fast. Each meal had been prepared with great attention to detail, they were aesthetically pleasing with tantalising flavours. We attended as a couple, celebrating a birthday, and recommend a visit to Blas Restaurant as a rare treat.

                                    The food in the restaurant was amazing. From the beginning until the end, I enjoyed the food. Also the staff was really friendly and helpful. If I didn’t know which wine to take with my food, one of them helped me out. We were supposed to eat there only one evening, but soon we decided to also eat there the next day

                                    Excellent food with very creative use of flavours. The desserts were particularly interesting and enjoyable. Service was good. Ambience was a bit weird with fairly ghastly artwork we had to try not to look at in order not to spoil the digestion.

                                    We had been recommended this place for its food and so over the Easter weekend went along to see what it was like. The food was indeed exceptional and will probably deserve a Michelin star at some stage. The accompanying wine list was also good and our selections - by the glass - went really well with our orders. Overall we were really pleased with our experience because first and foremost we are foodies and if the quality is good enough then we can overlook the rest. However two things let the experience down somewhat: 1) The setting is quite bizarre. It looks more like a London city restaurant with big opulent paintings and no light, although plenty of space. As this is in the middle of the Pembrokeshire coast where probably most people come for the scenery and outdoor experience this feels like a huge clash. 2) Service was ok, but muddled. For instance we were asked 3 times by different people if we had a reservation (since we were not staying at the hotel itself) which given that the dining room was half empty seemed a bit unnecessary

                                    This was our first experience of The Blas restaurant for my husbands birthday and overall we were not disappointed. A few minor things, one of the waiters could have been a little more clued up on the food and cheese board, the portions were rather small even for high end dining as it was just a little more than a taster menu at full price and the gap between the main course and desert was quite lengthy. However we would definitely visit again and I have already told friends about our visit in a positive light. Thank you

                                    The staff are excellent and make for a truly fine-dining experience - from the genuine welcome to the elegant place-settings, the special taster and bread and the unusual and very tasty courses through to the excellent dessert. A place to go whenever you feel the need to treat yourself!

                                    had such a wonderful meal at Blas. Each course was a delight that continually surprised us.

                                    We all enjoyed each course that arrived enjoying the tastes of unusual ingredients coming through. The chef was creative and gave attention to the smallest details, very delightful dining and a real treat for this corner of Wales! I'm sure a tasting menu would be a treat although not offered on the night we visited.

                                    I think I understand where Blas aspires but this aimed for level of sophistication does not come off. Concept of art in restaurant is great but either inappropriate for West Wales (eg Mr Evil) or not well presented. Does not come over as a old wind mill in west Pembrokeshire and more like a bland jet set internationalised formula. Food was over presented and poorly seasoned and portions may be on the small side especially accompaniments. Service friendly and helpful but betrayed by the aspirational professionalism suggested by fine dining atmosphere. On the plus side good selection of reasonably priced wines.

                                    Came for a birthday dinner with my husband and 2 kids (ages 8 and 9). Staff attentive but numerous. Food was great- artistic presentation with flavours to match. Our only criticism would be why the staff seated the only other diners on the table next to us in an empty restaurant? Not a concern for us but not sure if our fellow diners enjoyed my family's chit chat!! Would come again though as food very good

                                    It was a wonderful lunch, set in beautiful surroundings, the service was faultless, we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed - what could be better.

                                    Scallops starter was excellent, albeit on the small side for £10. My wild mushroom linguine was a beautiful seasonal dish and couldn't be better, my partner's pigeon breast with granola was original and her lamb was perfectly cooked. The wine list is too expensive. Love the art orientated interiors. The bar is a joke for such a good venue, small box with a hole in the wall serving hatch and no views out.

                                    Unexpected- on a wet and stormy night, this was a find, a new establishment down a lane on the edge of town. Deconstructed food with amazing and authentic flavours such as pigeon breast, bean sprouts with coriander and nice amuse-vouches. Incredible service

                                    Generally good - but you need to know it is like a taster menu where you certainly need all 3 courses plus - my John Dory was the smallest 'mains' I have ever had anywhere!
