So for those of you who don't know where it is , it's where gallois was!
Ok the food is excellent. The menu is short but delicious and will have something for everyone.
I had shredded lamb to start which was tasty , in a healthy portion and looked great.
For mains I had duck (£18:50) served with apricots and bubble and squeak. Again big portions and beautifully cooked pink.
My wife had sirloin which, ok looked a tiny bit dull on the plate, but was a quality piece of meat.
It was not if the groups birthday and the waitress picked up in it and brought out the pudding with a candle and happy birthday written on the plate.....nice touch.
The wine is reasonably priced. Bottle if prosecco under £20 and the Pino Grigio was around the £20 mark too
The staff are welcoming efficient and attentive without being a distraction. They were happy to tec omens stuff
The children's menu was nice too, nice chicken strips with tripple cooked chips. All went down very well with our kids.
My one criticism is the se one as it was when it was gallois and oscars and what ever else it's been since then....it's the acoustic of the room. It's too boomy, they need someone to go in there and try to deaden the sound because it is hard to hear what people the other side of the table are saying. If they can sort this out then arbenig will be one of the best restaurants in cardiff.
Having said that.....I will definitely go back even if it's for the salt caramel ice cream
