What a pleasant surprise. Ambience and food were excellent. Perched high above Cardiff, the restaurant and terrace gave a whole different take on “room with a view”. I like the fact you walk past the kitchens and prep areas. Immaculately clean, the food choice and...More

Exceptionally high standard of cooking for the price. The set lunch is £13 for two courses and £18 for three. The menu is modern and interesting (and bilingual), the food is fabulous and beautifully presented, and the room is lovely, feels special without being stuffy....More

Went for a meal with friends. The service was friendly and prompt (but obviously in training) and the food was absolutely delicious. We had a range of dishes between four of us, and they were all good. The biggest issue for me is the price....More

We visited here for a birthday meal. The food was very well presented and tasted great. Service was very good. It was an overall very pleasant experience. We went mid week so it was very quiet which meant the atmosphere was a bit muted I...More

I’d heard great things about this place so went along last night with a party of seven friends. First hurdle was actually getting up to the 5th floor restaurant as the lift had broken. Five floors unfortunately meant 10 flights of stairs. No idea when...More
