Had a lovely meal with friends, which was thoroughly enjoyable. Introduction from staff was very good. Restaurant a bit cold though, so we moved upstairs

We've been coming here since it opened 20/30 years ago and I can honestly say this was my first bad experience. Steak was tough, lamb kebabs were overcooked, service was really poor. The manager downstairs seemed unconcerned - said he hadn't expected to be so busy (pay day for many, start of Easter hols for most) but that's no excuse. Up your game please.

The biggest issue with the Bras, aside from the bland food and poor service, is the whole premise of having to order at a till like a fast food joint. This results in huge queues disrupting other diners and makes the delivery of food to the table an absolute farce if there are more than 6 of you as staff scream ‘DUCK!’ ‘CHICKEN!’ ‘STEAK!’ Over your heads. Ludicrous.

The food itself is pretty poor, steak served on metal hot plates mean that your rare steak is well done by the time the rest of your food arrives.

I don’t get why this is such a popular place to eat when you have so many incredible restaurants in swansea, it truly baffles me.

We’ve been to the Bras numerous times in recent years and always had a good meal.We spent last week in Spain (Granada and Malaga) and ate out in numerous restaurants where the service was appalling. Been to the Bras for lunch today and the service was excellent and the food consistently good. It’s a pity the restaurants in Spain can’t take some tips on service from here.

Visit here last Friday evening, we both had steak ribeye and rump with a good portion of chips and a visit to the salad bar with a nice bottle of house red to wash it down . There is no menu you go and pick the meat or fish your self from the fridge. I declined and let the waiter do it for me his choices was good and the waiting staff done a good job.
