I'm quite disappointed this place isn't strictly a cocktail bar any more, as I really enjoyed it. But I visited with my boyfriend for Valentine's Day, and it had the perfect romantic ambience and lovely food. I had the veal and my boyfriend had mussels, he appeared to enjoy his mussels and my veal was absolutely delicious! On the down... More

My husband and I purchased a Groupon vouchers (value 39.00 each) for a 4 course Christmas menu. I took my 3 teenage sons to eat off the regular menu. When I arrived I noted the surrounding area was residents only parking. On entering the venue I was surprised at how small it was. There was more ambience in Lidl than... More

As the hell hole that is this so called "Restaurant" is closed. Roughly £30 to cook your own mediocre fillet steak that is served on an IKEA plate. Thanks but no thanks.

Purchased a Groupon voucher for a 4 course Xmas celebration meal for two. Voucher appeared good value initially however the choice wasnt what we expected. To be fair the waitress was helpful and we were able to choose an alternative starter but to state this was an"Xmas meal" wasnt accurate. Don't email requesting a reservation as not acknowledged, must telephone... More

Went here in a party of 5 with Groupon voucher, Very high price for average food and even with the voucher, we were shocked at the bill for what we had. Very bland restaurant with little atmosphere.

This place is fabulous. We went to Ba Rooba for my wife's birthday after a friend recommended it. We really felt like we were on holiday. The atmosphere was great, the music was great (and not too overpowering) and it has a really great feel about it. The food was out of this world. My wife had the goats cheese... More

This is by far the worst food/service I have experienced in Cardiff. Upon arriving, it took an age to get drinks/be served even though there were only two other tables. Our starters were average at best but our mains were awful...my friend ordered risotto which looked like soup and our steaks on the stone were poor cuts and chewy. We... More
