Perfect Pre-Show Repast

We opted to dine here before seeing Dylan Moran in the auditorium at the WMC. We have eaten here before and noticed an improvement in the quality of the food. The service is as ever professional & personable & the bar-staff went the extra mile in making my partner a "proper gin martini" (stirred... read more

went here with my daughter and had fantastic lunch. All food freshly prepared, well presented and the quality of dishes and service was second to none. Highly recommended! Sets the standard way above the "chain restaurants" in Cardiff.

Great location inside the Wales Milennium Centre, very pleasant staff and a great choice of locally sourced food. Good value for money too if you're a Londoner like me!

We ate at ffresh in the autumn shortly after Marc Corfield arrived, expecting the usual high standard of his cooking. Instead, it was a dreadful experience. We were offered the opportunity to give the restaurant another chance and did so early in 2015. What an amazing change since Arnaldo (Martins) has taken over as Restaurant Manager (with the support of... More

We have eaten here before shows at the Centre on a few occasions now. The first time we thought it was super, good value and good food. The second time - the menu was the same and the third time.... so we ran out of choices. Apparently it changes every three months - funny, this was over a period of... More

Easter Monday, brilliant sunshine in the bay, early lunch. Ffresh bar is always clean and sparkling. Menu simple, service prompt. Burgers are made here and cooked to order(chicken or beef). The buns are not soggy warms-ups but beautiful chiabata with lots of extras, and chips, for under £10. Eat in or out, must be good!

So disappointing. We had a visitor from London arriving by train to see a show at the Wales Millennium Centre so it seemed most convenient to eat inside the Centre before the show. The two men had starters that were good. We mentioned to the waitress that we were going to the show and had booked the pre-theatre dinner. She... More
