About Restaurant James Sommerin
We are open 6 days a week for lunch and dinner. We are closed on a Monday, we also close on Boxing Day and New Years Day.
Please be aware we do no have allocaed parking, however, there is plenty of parking up and down the Esplanade and a car park at the top of the hill which is a 5 minute walk.
The food was generally good and some dishes, particularly the lobster and the puddings were excellent. The wine was more variable. The service was disappointing as it took a long time to clear empty plates and the timings of the dishes were erratic.
Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience. Excellent menu and wine options . Opted for the A la Carte rather than the taster menu. Food was beautifully cooked and presented . We spoke to a knowledgeable sommelier and chose a wine which complemented our food perfectly. Our waitresses explained our choices and were attentive in their service . So glad that we chose to come here to celebrate our special occasion.
We had the 6course tasting menu with paired wines. Absolutely great afternoon. Food and service impeccable.
Excellent food, which is great value for money. Staff very friendly and knowledgable. Will definitely be back.
Amazing food Fabulous ambiance Wonderful friendly service Diolch yn fawr iawn
We had a wonderful lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We will certainly be coming again. Many thanks.
We have been to the restaurant 3 times now and on each occasion you have excelled and produced amazing food and provided us with a wonderful dining experience. Thank you.
Fantastic food excellent friendly and knowledgeable staff-a special treat !
Lived up to our expectations. Lovely surprises between courses. High quality meal which was well presented by friendly and efficient staff. Will definitely return.
We had a brilliant time, food was excellent, ambiance was spot on. Laid back, no rush perfect. The only thing to let the service down was the fact we had to go and ask for more drinks as, after sitting for nearly 30 minutes with empty glasses and no one asking if we’d like more, we had to go to the bar and ask!! Other than that it was perfect. Will will definitely be back.
Excellent, imaginative food and attentive service
Food was fantastic
The food and service was absolutely fantastic. We particularly enjoyed learning about the wines that were paired with each course. It was an amazing experience!
What an experience !! Arrived at 8pm for a meal booked for my wife's birthday ,we both ordered the 9 course taster menu , food was fantastic , we weren't disappointed at all ,service 5* , thought the price was a little expensive for the food and especially the drinks , we weren't rushed at all having plenty of time to enjoy each course , if opting for 9 courses then allow 4 hours , a very enjoyable experience, thank you RJR
Exceptional food and presentation. Hope to return soon.
Would highly recommend. Outstanding food and service. The raspberry souffle with parma violet icecream was exquisite!
Really nice experience and would highly recommend.
Good atmosphere and location. Attentive staff very professional. Food was delicious, a superb dining experience.
Wonderful evening at the “Chefs Table”, great food and great welcome. So interesting to watch you all work, so impressed with the skill, discipline and slick organisation enjoyed every moment. Anybody who considers themselves a “foodie” or enjoys cooking should experience this. Thanks
As usual the food was amazing with so many flavours and textures. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.Fabulous!
Excellent in every way. Interesting choice of wines.
Excellent courses, unique flavours, the main waiter way too phlegmatic, caffè and water overpriced
Visited for food and stayed for my partner's 30th birthday. Everyone was really engaging and informative about the food. Service was impeccable. I've recommended to several people already and can't wait to go back - thank you all.
