There has been a reluctance to go to "The Bay" - it is another piece of manmade water that I would usually avoid.

Visited this place today as a great location to meet up with friends in Cardiff Bay. Had visited this restaurant before, but today's visit was very unremarkable. Location is great within the Wales Millennium Centre and just a stone's throw (no pun intended - if you're local you'll know what I mean!) from the waterfront and right next to the... More

Pre show meal which was faultless. Meal was superb and the staff were excellent. 3 course dinner was a really reasonable price for what was served. Will definitely be booking again.

Booked a pre-show meal and was overall pleased with the service, however would have liked to have been offered salt & pepper! My rib-eye steak was a tad over done but still very tasty. All staff attentive and courteous.

The staff were extremely tentative, accommodating and helpful, they took our coats and pushed in our chairs, chivalry is not dead! Table with a great view and the food was spectacular, although it came out extremely quick we had had our starter, main and dessert within 45 minutes! I had the pork belly, it was to die for. The dessert... More

4 of us just popped in here before we went to a show in the Millennium Centre. We sat in the bar although there is a stylish restaurant as we did not want to wait around too long. Great selection of wines - sparkling clear glasses (a rarity these days) 3 of us ordered pizzas and I had the fish... More

Attentive service, subtlely flavoured food, calm atmosphere. Probably slightly expensive for Cardiff (but not by London standards) but well worth it.
