One visit to Mr Villa’s is enough to make you a lifelong regular. This charming seafood restaurant has won over the locals of Barry, but also draws in diners from further afield – the food here more than justifi es a journey. The restaurant itself is bright and spacious, and the friendly team guarantees a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Whether you visit Mr Villa’s for a quick midweek dinner or for a special occasion, you’ll be made to feel right at home.
The seafood featured on the menu changes according to the season and is always fresh and prepared to perfection; the kitchen team prides itself on its expertise. You might find the likes of scallops, poached hake and mussels served in garlic and cream sauce, or the shellfish platter, which comes with half a lobster. The pan-fried salmon in Hollandaise sauce and freshly battered fish and chips are always popular, too. Though primarily a seafood restaurant, Mr Villa’s also excels in offering top-notch traditional British cuisine. The roast dinners are unmissable, with a choice of expertly roasted meats and trimmings like Yorkshire pudding for the sirloin of beef, and apple sauce, the perfect accompaniment to roast pork loin. For dessert, it has to be the hazelnut and raspberry meringue. This sweet treat has its own legion of fans, thanks to the lighter-than-air meringue and tart, fresh raspberries. The reasonable prices mean that you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to dine at Mr Villa’s – though with food this good every meal is an event.
