Narberth is a food lovers dream. There are so many amazing places to eat, nestled in and tucked away in the small town. From modern Spanish tapas, to authentic Kurdish dishes, top class pizza to nourishing veggie delights, your biggest problem is finding room for it all. Here’s a quick rundown of our favourites if you’re grabbing a bite in the historical town.
Tooj is a Kurdish cafe owned by brothers Orhan and Emrah serving delicious traditional, homemade Kurdish dishes. Tucked away just before the high street, the interior of Tooj is adorned with traditional fabrics and cushions. With communal dining and authentic music, it’s a real dining experience.
Probably at the top of most locals’ list for something a little special, Ultracomida is a deli at the front, hiding a small Tapas day-bar through the back.
