We stopped here for lunch, midweek in April 2017 The place was very quiet with only two other customers on the premises. The surroundings were cheap and cheerful, and very much café standard and style. The waitress was friendly. She efficiently took our order and served the meal as ordered. There was a good selection of meals to choose from.... More

We were looking forward to our meal at The Port Of Call having read previous reviews but what a let down. Our biggest complaint is how they allowed a dog to walk freely around the restaurant and at one point the waitress nearly tripped over dog while carrying out our food. Our food was placed on table then the waitress... More

Thank you for your review however I wish to clarify some points. We take food hygiene and health and safety here extremely seriously and at no point are dogs allowed to 'walk freely around' in my restaurant! Consequently they would not be able to walk into my kitchen or indeed any where near! All my staff are trained to industry... More

What a wonderful cozy place this is!! A warm welcome and very genuine owners. We booked a table and we were so glad we did as it was busy. We both ordered a drink from the decent choice and they arrived well chilled. The steak is an obvious favourite here so we both ordered a ribeye. Our starters came first... More

We had the Christmas lunch at the Port of Call on Christmas. We thoroughly enjoyed it with excellent food, very large portions. The staff are delightful and it was a lot of light hearted fun with excellent service. We would recommend this small local restaurant very highly.

Description
Welcome to the Port of Call. I have been reliably informed that this was the 3rd house to be built in New Quay. Nestled between traditional stone built houses and shops this characterful place always offers a warm welcome. Home prepared/cooked food and fresh locally produced ingredients offer you the taste of West Wales. Take a boat trip to see the dolphins playing in the Bay or just sit and have a glass of something cold while watching the sea from our terrace.
