Was told off by one of the managers for having a conversation with friends and apparently being too loud on a Saturday night at 8pm. Would not visit this place ever again after being made to feel like a naughty child for having a conversation...More

Lovely venue with a fantastic ambience and friendly, welcoming staff. Good food too. This place is a real plus for Cardiff and I hope it is one 9f the survivors of the virus as it really deserves to prosper.

I went to alchemist in Cardiff and had the most amazing experience. The staff were so professional, polite and helpful. Our waiter michael made our evening so special and entertaining. The drinks were amazing and the service was excellent. Will definitely be returning soon.

Went to the Alchemist with a friend to have few drinks after a dinner in The Ivy. Staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our cocktails very much. Planning to have dinner in the Alchemist very soon.

I went to have dinner with my girlfriend and my mate. The starters were really nice, but the main were just decent. The drinks were so good ( the place is definitely a cocktail place, more than a food place). We were served by Ash...More

I'm not sure why that is, but the prices are moderate. Entrees between 12 and 25 Euro.
