    Tapas evenings are always my favourite and the choice and quality of the food didn’t disappoint - delicious. Choice of drinks also really good and cocktails were of quality. Great place to spend the weekend with friends.

    The tapas we ordered was delicious. We enjoyed it all. The service was attentive. The 'conservatory' is a good spot to be able to chat but it can feel a little chilly. A visit to Lolfa is always enjoyable! Diolch

    We’ve been coming here for a while now but thought we’d finally write our review and say, thank you for making us fall back in love with Carmarthen Town and giving us a reason to stick around! We’ve been looking for somewhere that really makes us feel at home, and we’ve found it in Lolfa. Your team is extremely welcoming, warm, kind and very knowledgeable in terms of food and drinks! Your cocktails are extremely well balanced, food is served to perfection and the restaurant itself is a beautiful venue with a great vibe to it. This is one of the BEST restaurants in South West Wales, perhaps in both South and West Wales.

    LolfaResponded on 5 May 2022Thankyou very much for your review, it is greatly appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back.

    As always the food was excellent and well presented. Waiting times ok. Can get rowdy when there are hen parties taking place but appart from that would recommend. Roof terrace a welcome addition especially on a sunny morning when the sun is on that part of the building.

    WOW 🤩 what can I say other than I will definitely be back. Amazing it every way, staff helpful, kind, polite, relaxed to talk too, atmosphere was/is inviting from the minute I arrived. Afternoon tea was absolutely outstanding, the freshness and taste of the homemade food was amazing, I was spoilt for choice and plenty to choose from, the homemade scotch egg was absolutely divine and the sponge was so soft it melt in my mouth and what better way to end a lovely day was having Lolfas 2 for 1 cocktails 🍸. Diolch/thank you Lolfa for a lovely afternoon and evening.

    The website doesn’t state that tapas isn’t served all day and I went specifically for that and couldn’t get it so we hate off the lunch menu. We both ordered burgers and had to pay £1.50 extra for cheese and another £1.50 for bacon which made it very expensive and not very good. The burger was dense and gristly and the bacon was very fatty. Wouldn’t recommend.

    The conservatory was cold and there was an unpleasant smell, probably from the WC which was close by. The food was disappointing.
