About Blas Restaurant

Meaning ‘Taste’ in Welsh, Blas was born out of the vision for its home, Twr y Felin. The dishes reflect the interior design, the food is creative, flavour filled, experimental; the presentation is ‘art on a plate’.

Ambient mood lighting highlights some of the hotels most divisive artworks, creating a space that influences the emotions and is space to engage in the present.

The menu offers contemporary dining, inspired by the season and locality, echoing Wales and its produce. Carefully sourced from predominantly Pembrokeshire and Welsh suppliers, the raw ingredients are fresh and originate from the surrounding countryside and coast.

Wales is famous for its lamb, but Pembrokeshire Black Beef, duck and fowl are farmed locally and feature regularly; whilst lobster, crab, mussels, clams and many species of fish are caught daily in the surrounding seas. Foraging rewards the team with ingredients such as samphire and laverbread.

From the windmill, you can see lush green fields above Caerfai Bay, dotted with a herd of grazing dairy cows. It is their milk that the local farmer churns into Cheddar and Caerphilly organic cheese, and is a must to taste.

For a true culinary experience and a feast for the senses, don’t miss it.

This is an expensive evening out. However, the atmosphere was very relaxed despite current covid situation. The service cannot be faulted, all staff were attentive and very friendly. The food was extremely good. Good to see that the feedback in relation to portion size has been taken on board with the addition of side dishes. This was our wedding anniversary and the chef made a very personal "petit fois" plate for us. Our experience in the restaurant made our evening very special indeed. We would return and definitely recommend.

The food was ok, not exceptional. We had amuse bouche of venison tartare which was a bit strange, and certainly an odd choice for an appetiser (my husband was already having venison for main). Oddly the garlic roasted potatoes were all dente, so not enjoyable. Overall it wasn’t that bad. The staff are masked, the complication of using an app to see the menu seems unnecessary, when a wipeable menu would suffice.

We booked very late notice and are so glad we found availability at Blas Restaurant. The restaurant and hotel took safety and social distancing very seriously during the COVID pandemic but not to the point where you felt uncomfortable or spoil the atmosphere in anyway. The service throughout was superb for both dinner and breakfast, and the food was both stunningly presented and delicious. It was incredibly good value for money for the quality of food, especially compared to some pretty mediocre restaurants we had eaten in during that week while travelling through South Wales which were charging very similar prices at Blas. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting St David's.

We ate here on 2 consecutive nights. The first was excellent. The second was really disappointing because the very short menu remained unchanged. If one did not want venison there was no alternative meat, and even the amuse bouche was venison on the second night. The reason for my rating of service is only because the waiting staff could have suggested something off the room service menu. Otherwise service was 4 stars.

We had three breakfasts and two dinners with you. I have no complaint about the breakfasts which were good quality and well presented. One particular main course at dinner was very overpriced and simply ridiculous as a main course. Something which could have comfortably fitted on a couple of 50's and literally took all of a minute to consume. Granted artistry has a place in cooking but the point of eating is to satisfy basic needs as well. Butternut squash as far as I know is not an expensive product which must be conserved like perhaps truffles? Anyway, I complained about it at the time and your staff were very good at dealing with a grumpy customer. This was on the night of the 6th September. By the way, the breakfasts need to be good bearing in mind you are charging London prices for your accommodation and you are stuck in the middle of nowhere.

A little disappointing Much of the food arrived at the table cold. To say that the potatoes were the best part of the main courses probably says it all. The rest was sadly lacking in flavour and slightly undercooked.

Innovative beautifully prepared food, portion size perfect to allow enjoyment of all three courses. One minor point, we noticed a chip in a water glass after pouring the refill from the bottled water, glass was replaced, would have been a nice touch to replace the water also. But, very much look forward to returning. Gareth Thomas

Considering the current circumstances and the time we are leaving, our dinner at Blas was really nice. Maybe some additional options in the menu would make it more exciting, but I have to admit that everything we ordered was very good, covering taste and presentation. The service was excellent. Very friendly but still efficient and professional. Definitely a nice treat if you are in the area.

This restaurant produced some dishes worthy of its two rosettes and we ate some lovely pescatarian and vegetarian food. My partner's halibut mains and loster starter and my mushroom starter and both mains cauliflower dishes were especially noteworthy. Highly recommended. The desserts were universally excellent. If you have special dietary needs give them plenty of advance notice.
