Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

So glad we chanced on this gem on our first night in Cardiff. Friendly, attentive staff and fabulous food. We'll not look anywhere else for the rest of our stay!

We booked dinner at the hotel restaurant for my birthday. We had a duck breast and a pan fried cod, both just perfect. Service was excellent (I don´t recall the name of the waitress but her boyfriend is Portuguese). She was lovely. As dessert, we...asked for homemade banoffe bombons, very tasty and my husband had ice cream. Great way to celebrate a special occasion.More

I had another exceptional experience at Culley's. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff who promptly guided us to our table. The drinks and food were outstanding. I particularly enjoyed the mojito and the duck, which was my...main course. The ambiance, music, and lively atmosphere made the entire experience even more enjoyable. I highly recommend Culley's for a fantastic dining experience. Special thanks to Mia and Sam, who served us efficiently and ensured that our drinks, starters, and mains were delivered promptly.More

An excellent pre show dinner. Staff and quality of the food were excellent. I would definitely recommend as an alternative the 'chains' of the bay.

Only 2 minutes walk from the vibrant Mermaid Quay of Cardiff Bay, Culley's is a step back in time to a era when Cardiff led the World in exporting coal. Culley's is a modern-day restaurant with good food, great service and an excellent backdrop that...takes you back 100-200 years. With its huge steel ceiling joists, exposed walls and throwback historical photos you get a sense of what Cardiff was like in its hey day! Nestling in one of the most historical back street areas of Cardiff Bay under the the umbrella of The Coal Exchange, Culley's is a must visit if you want to learn more about historical Cardiff, whilst enjoying good food, good service and history.More

Brilliant bottomless brunch made even better by the staff. We were there as part of an overall package at the Coal Exchange. Staff were understanding over one thing I really couldn’t have and came up with a really great alternative. Food was lovely - not...exceptional- the bean burger turning out to be a bit dry. The beef burger though was amazing. The Eton mess option with mango and passion fruit - rather than strawberry - sounded so tempting but did slightly disappoint. The atmosphere was lovely, lively and with live music. The staff, though, were just the best, friendly, attentive and just greatMore

We are so glad that Culleys is open again, as we have always enjoyed their roast platter Sunday lunch. With excellent service from Emily and live music to keep us entertained. Our favourite place for Sunday lunch.

There were four in our party and we all very much enjoyed our choices of meals and the friendly staff. Interestingly the room used for the restaurant was once a Barclays Bank branch that I often visited in 1950’s and 1960’s
