Cafe Citta


Cathays, Cardiff
18/03/2019: We have tried to eat here a couple of times when visiting Cardiff but never managed to get in. This time we booked ahead and managed to get a two hour slot. Its a tiny place and you are seated cheek to jowel with your fellow diners but its a very convivial atmosphere. We could watch the chef in the kitchen from our spot and boy do the kitchen team and waiting staff work hard. At times it can get a wee bit smokey when dishes are flaming but the extractor fan soon reduces it. We had three courses and each one was thoroughly enjoyed. Would definitely recommend and will book again next time we visit Cardiff.
17/03/2019: This place lives up to the excellent reviews. A great little restaurant serving really good Italian food. Very reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Definitely one of the best restaurants we have eaten in for some months. We would strongly recommend eating here. When back in Cardiff we will eat here again.

The Hellenic Eatery


Cathays, Cardiff
15/03/2019: Επισκεφτήκαμε το Cartiff,τον περασμένο Ιούνιο,και αναζητοντας κάποιο Ελληνικό εστιατόριο βρεθήκαμε στο Hellenic Eatery.Απο την αρχή νοιώσαμε σαν να είμαστε στην Ελλάδα.Οι ιδιοκτήτες και το προσωπικό ήταν πολύ φιλικοί ,φιλόξενοι,και εξυπηρετικόι.Απολαυσαμε πολύ όμορφα φαγητά ,με Ελληνική μπυρα,FIx,και κλείσαμε με εξερετικο γαλακτομπούρεκο και κρητική τσικουδιά.Οταν επισκέφθητε το Cardiff Αξιζεινα διαθέσετε λίγο από τον χρόνο σας και να το επισκευθητε.
09/03/2019: If you love Greek food then definitely check this place out. The service is always friendly and the food always delicious. A great choice of dishes too! Already looking forward to our next visit.

Madame Fromage


Cathays, Cardiff
15/03/2019: This is a great place for freshly produced amazing food. Usually I have my favourite lunch spot in Cardiff but that will definately change now I've been here. The staff are amazing and as I said the food is great as well as the portions being a good size. For the shop...its dangerous, there are so many things I wanted to buy which were of equal quality to the restaurant food.
13/03/2019: Popped in here for a late lunch. We ordered the Welsh rarebit and Greek salad both of which were fantastic. It is rare these days to feel as if a salad is worth the price you are quoted but I can safely say that this one was. The portion size was generous and ingredient fresh and of good quality. The waitress that served us was very friendly and helpful! Will definetly be coming here again!

Bar 44 Cardiff


Cathays, Cardiff
11/03/2019: Visited this place a few weeks ago on a recommendation from a friend and have never been so pleasantly surprised. By a long way the best tapas we have eaten outside of San Sebastian. The lamb and the pork Belly sensational, as was the berry sangria. Service impeccable and every dish delicious. The dinner was so good we booked for lunch the next day which was equally good!
03/03/2019: We have visited this Tapas bar for lunch on previous occasions. We took advantage of the two Tapas for £8.00 lunch offer. We did enjoy it but not as much as on previous occasions. Maybe we ordered dishes because they were on the lunch offer and not what we really wanted. Will try again next time we are in Cardiff.

Mina Restaurant


Cathays, Cardiff, >100£
10/03/2019: We had an amazing dinner at this restaurant, starting with the yummy appetizers that we thought we filled up on, to the sweets. The Main dishes were great. We were a group of ten, including children of different ages and very picky ones. Their signature dishes of Mina lamb and chicken were full of flavors. My son ordered garlic bread/ was the best!!. Clean, great service, nicely and tastefully decorated. Very unique, highly recommend it, especially to anyone visiting from overseas.
07/03/2019: This was my third time at Mina's and it has been fantastic every time. The food is always fresh and delicious and served in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. It is fast becoming my favourite restaurant in Cardiff!

Cafe du chat noir ltd


Cathays, Cardiff
17/03/2019: As local people we come here regularly and for the life of me I can't think why I haven't written a review before now! Long overdue. Every meal I have ever been served here has been incredibly tasty. This couple (who run/own?) chat are getting it right! Best French place in Cardiff! Come early or book. Love it and will always return.
13/03/2019: Absolutely stunning food and brilliant service, well worth the walk out out town. Had the most amazing croques, just perfect! Can't wait to come back and will be soon! Hidden down a little arcade so do look for it...

Casanova


Cathays, Cardiff
16/03/2019: Any restaurant that doesn't care (eg ask halfway through the meal) if you're happy with the food, takes away plates you've only half eaten and then presents the bill as if you've enjoyed the food should not be offering its service to the public.
12/03/2019: A long standing friend was visiting from overseas and we intended to eat at the Mango Indian restaurant highly recommended on TripAdvisor to find it closed down!

Bellini's Italiano Park Place


Cathays, Cardiff, >100£
12/03/2019: Went on a Tuesday night, not busy but this didn’t detract from the pleasant surroundings and ambience. Very extensive menu. Staff friendly, cheerful and helpful. Drinks reasonable (G&T; £4.50) had carbonara with steak - very large portion and very very tasty. Couldn’t fault the place and will definitely visit again when in Cardiff. Up there as one of the best Italians I’ve eaten.
12/03/2019: Modern clean interior. Friendly attentive staff. Tasty authentic Italian dishes and generous portions at reasonable prices. Couldn’t fault it.

Fresh


Cathays, Cardiff
07/03/2019: Pedí un baguette de jamón, brie, tomate y pesto en el camino de regreso a la escuela. Antes no tenía un buen presentimiento sobre el Pesto, así que estaba un poco asustado. ¡El propietario me animó a probar sus 2 pesto diferentes y el pesto verde sabía muy bien! El pan integral estaba ligeramente tostado y crujiente pero suave por dentro. Bueno por el precio y fue suficiente para un almuerzo como una comida posterior al entrenamiento. INCREÍBLE.
03/03/2019: I love the baguettes from this place. Get there before 12:00 or you will be queueing. Good value food always fresh and served by the always happy owner.

Viva Brazil


Cathays, Cardiff, 20-30£
19/03/2019: Great atmosphere and great food is all you need from a restaurant and Viva Brazil really delivered. The whole concept is different and different is good. The buffet selection alone is better the a lot of places whole menu. The whole trying different meats is great and I really enjoyed most of them a couple might have been slightly over seasoned but that’s not a big issue. The service was great and you were made to feel like a welcome guest and our waiter Melvin was a top guy and a natural host. I will definitely be back.
19/03/2019: An excellent restaurant, the food was fantastic and plenty to eat. Good value for money. Would definitely go again, but I won't eat anything before!

The Meating Place


Cathays, Cardiff
11/08/2018: I didn't have high hopes for this place as its on the main street where the bars are and assumed it would be average. But far from it, the short rib and lamb skewer was delicious. Im so glad we gave it a go, best meal we had on our cardiff visit.
11/08/2018: Great food and really good service certainly somewhere where we would not hesitate in taking a client again

Cote Brasserie - Cardiff Central


Cathays, Cardiff
19/03/2019: Had an early dinner from the excellent value Prestige menu. Started with the muscles in a tasty sauce and calamari - both very good. Then had the pork tenderloin and a rib-eye steak, both tender and tasty. Finished with a lovely creme caramel and a wonderful warm chocolate sauce coupe noire - all washed down with a couple of glasses of their decent Sauvignon Blanc and Lagarde Red and finished with a couple of excellent double espressos. Attentive but not too pushy service throughout - a very enjoyable and satisfying meal!
17/03/2019: we ate here after a rugby match - they were absolutely crammed with people but the staff were SO good - charming professional funny efficient and the food and wine were terrific too

The Pot


Cathays, Cardiff
05/03/2019: Came here for breakfast a few times and really rare this place on the whole. The eggs and welsh breakfast is fantastic. However recently tried th pancakes - it was ONE medium american pancake with Nutella and banana for £6! I could understand this if it was a crepe. Looking back at the menu it does say pancake rather than pancakes but this is quite bizarre as most places would serve a stack of pancakes (at least three). Left hungry which is disappointing when you go out for brunch. It would cost them pennies to give another and seems very stingy. Go for one of the other breakfast options which are great!
04/03/2019: Called in on a Thursday lunchtime quite late so it was fairly quiet. Good choice on the menu, but we all chose a "pot". The coq au vin was very tasty with tender chicken (on the bone) and creamy mash. The veggie one with hummus was also tasty. It's a small fish but just right for a quick lunch. Service was efficient and friendly and the decor rustic.
