SquareMeal Review of No 13

It’s not a place people stumble on, but you’d be wise to venture the couple of hundred yards beyond Swansea’s main shopping area to find No 13. As classy as it is unpretentious, this restaurant’s menu of entirely home-cooked food exhibits a greedy passion for flavours from around the world. Meals are colourful, generous & often imaginative – start with smoked goose breast on an oriental noodle salad, then follow with mussels in a spicy chorizo sauce with crisp, oversized, hand-cut chips. For local ingredients look to a starter of seafood soup or a main course of salt marsh lamb with root vegetable mash & port, redcurrant & rosemary jus. Winter desserts might include a cockle-warming rice pudding with Calvados-soaked currants & a topping of spicy caramelised Bramleys. The setting is slick but relaxed with slate & wood floors & modern art on pale walls, while service is charming & knowledgeable – & with the Grand Theatre just over the road, this is an ideal place for pre-theatre eats.

Been going since it opened and even although i love there favourites i try there various specials from the vast choice as often as possible.some dishes are ones id never consider but you can trust the two chefs have added there magic to it and im more adventureous with what i eat thanks to there style and personal touches,the service equals the food,the only thing that bothers me is that this restaurant is not fully booked all the time cos they deserve to be,from traditional to far out and mixes of both its not what it appears to be i sincereley hpoe they get the reconition they deserve,welcome to swansea and we hope you stay good luck,a lucky food lover who waited a long time for a place like this to open
