Whilst meandering through Cardiff after the rugby, with all places booked I noticed an empty table. Not a problem all four of us enjoyed a hearty meal. The food was excellent as was the service. I will remember this for next time.

The food is decent, nothing spectacular. Service was good and quick. Food slightly overpriced and atmosphere was pretty dull.
