“Brilliant -almost Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Lunch at The Bayside Brasserie has to be as near to perfection I have found yet.
Linen Napkins, always a good sign, attentive service, not overbearing, just right.
Food, well....it just does not get any better, absolutely wonderful, just right for lunch.
Price...well priced for the food you get, not too much.
Ambience and setting...Great view through the many windows of Cardiff Bay, and comfortable seating and background music just at the right level
I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.
Great value, and well worth another visit.

“Sunday lunch, stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Great views, lovely setting. Service was attentive but discreet and the decor is charming, linen cloths and napkins and an old fashioned feel. The roasts were excellent and the salmon was really tasty. We would definitely go again. The only difficulty is parking in the Bay on a busy Sunday.

“Maybe I'm missing something”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Used this restaurant for a birthday meal and judging by the reviews I determined it would either go one way or the other, as it happens it was neither. The restaurant itself was as you'd expect, beautiful and well presented and impeccably clean, the service was average however still nothing to complain about. The menu itself seemed excellent and catered for everyone, the prices were as you'd expect for a restaurant of its kind however although the food was good it wasn't great. I expected something that would leave my mouth watering for days after just at the thought of it and I just didn't seem to get that, me nor anybody else in the group. It was fresh and well presented but considering the price and compared to other restaurants, it lacked any spark! We had a problem with a service charge at the end but that was dealt with promptly which was great. Id come again yes, but for a special occasion probably not.

“Lovely food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Went here with my fiance. He had a ribeye steak there. The steak was great, but more than that, the service was fantastic, the waiter was super attentive but not in an annoying way. The food was reasonably priced for somewhere that serves good food. I would definitely go there again!
