We came here to meet my mother for lunch. My parents had been here before and my stepdad wasn't massively impressed but because it's close to mum's office we decided to try it again. We were told our fish and chips would take at least half an hour longer than usual because the fish "wasn't ready yet" and that everything... More

We visited at 14:00 on a Sunday. We were a little unnerved to be the only people in the bar. Our gain was other people's loss. We had a fantastic two course meal. The portions are exceptionally generous and the food is of excellent quality. I had the parsnip mousse with mushrooms and my girlfriend had the ceasar salad as... More

I am writing this review whilst sat in the beer garden. The barman (who has just told me he is new in role) has been exceptional and cannot so enough for us. The staff have been attentive, helpful, friendly and humorous. We came for an evening pint in the sunshine, and stayed for dinner which was excellent. The food was... More

It is with regret that I feel the need to write a negative review of this much awaited meal at Jolyons Cathedral Road Cardiff. Had prawn cocktail for starters ,was ok, but lettuce was limp and uninviting. Ordered salmon for main course. The plates were stone cold,and the meal uninviting ,bland and tasteless. I left more than half of my... More

We both ordered steaks which were excellent. The welsh cake cheese cakes were fabulous and it was especially nice to have the option of local Felin Foel beer.

We popped in because we liked the name of the place Didn't eat, just had a quick drink at the bar Would say the drinks are a bit pricey, but the overall vibe and decor is chilled and sophisticated Private dining room available from what I could see, so possibly a decent place for a small corporate function

We did not dine here as it felt more like a bar. That said, it is very nice for a drink and it has a nice atmosphere.
