Service and food is generally good, but the whole experience spoilt by the way, way overpricing. 2 starters, 2 bowls of pasta ragu and bottle of cheap wine -£90. Wouldn't recommend, better restaurants around.

We selected this restaurant following Tripadvisor recommendations. Great food, unfortunately we were sitting next to a party of 6 loud women which tampered our experience. We left without taking dessert, it was so uncomfortable. In other condition experience would have been great.

Bit odd with this one. On entering the place is very well presented and welcoming. Staff also gave a nice reception. It was a cold night and it was clear that two of the girls of the party were struggling with the cold a bit. Without asking, a minute later a glass of warm water wrapped in a napkin was... More

This is a great little restaurant. The expert staff are professional and amiable. The evening menus are set with the option of additional special which the staff explain thoroughly. A delicious red wine accompanied my dinner and the welcome freebies made us feel special.

We came to this restaurant for our 30th wedding celebrations and i must say we were not disappointed. The quality of the food i would say is exceptional along with fantastic friendly service made it a night to remember.

We recently went there to celebrate my birthday. On arrival we were given a warm greeting by the manager and presented with a glass of fizz in honour of my birthday. The food was beautifully presented and really tasty. The service was excellent, and it had a lovely atmosphere, I would recommend anyone to go you won't be disappointed !

We took my mother and father here for their 30th anniversary and it certainly did not disappoint. The food was beautiful, we spent the whole time eating in silence with the occasionally noise! The service was wonderful and friendly. I will 100% be returning here and recommending it. One of my top places to eat.

Certainly the best in Cardiff by a mile. Continues to improve month by month and shortly will be celebrating their 10th year.
