Went for lunch yesterday enticed by the special lunch menu - 2 courses for £13 as advertised on their website. Was not offered this choice on the menu so asked waiter about it only to be told they don't offer that deal anymore and loads of people complain about it , they have asked the manager to take it off the website numerous times but he won't listen. The waiter said lots of customers just walk out because of the fasle advertising. We were not offered any sort of alternative deal just the standard meal.

An excellent restaurant for fresh seafood and steaks, in Penarth. The Fig Tree is a great place for a simple meal or for a special occasion.
The location is fantastic, the service, the atmosphere and the staff are excellent, and the food is fabulous.
Make sure you book a table!

This place is superbly located looking out towards the sea in beautiful Penarth. The terrace is lovely and provides stunning views.

The service is good and the food is really good. The fish is fresh and well-prepared. The menu is simple but provides enough variety to make choosing a challenge!

Really impressed- recommended.

Poor service and wasn’t that busy, Finished our arrival drinks and still we weren’t seen to. Had to get the waitresses attention every time we wanted something.
Good food.
