I visited the Park House in Cardiff with my husband as part of a birthday treat. I thoroughly enjoy the experience of enjoying afternoon tea, however, I have to say that this "experience" was totally underwhelming. On arrival, we entered the restaurant expecting to see at least one table laid up for afternoon tea. There was no real attempt at... More

My wife and I ate at Park House on 4th July as part of their South African Wine Week dinner. As usual, we were warmly greeted and shown to our seats in the bar for a pre-dinner drink with canapes. Delicious. Our 7 course taster meal with matched wines was the excellent standard we have come to expect and experience... More

The Park House is a stunning, fine dining venue. The building is wonderful - Grade 1 listed. It feels special and exclusive. The service was excellent, the food to high quality, well cooked and excellently presented. Unfortunately, the food was not to our taste. We tried the tasting menu and found the food very rich or very sweet (dessert). Check... More

This is the second time I have been for the tasting menu. It is fantastic, the waiting staff are attentive and have a good knowledge of the courses. The wine waiter was also knowledgable. The ambience of the restaurant is relaxed with stunning decor. I would recommend especially if your trying to impress.

Taster menus here amazing, service fantastic, brilliant staff very knowledgeable, beautiful old building but decor/setting is a bit odd.........could do with a refresh and better ambience, just personal taste I guess. Would definitely recommend this place, good to visit after the theatre.

I have wanted to eat here for ages. We finally got the opportunity recently and it lived up to expectations. The food was creative and delicious. Service was good if a little erratic. The building itself is stunning. Drinks are very pricey, but worth it for a splurge.

My partner and I have eaten here about 8 occasions and every time it is superb and we always end up making another reservation. I think its safe to say that its... More

From the lenght of time it took to get a pre-diner drink to the dining room devoid of waiters who were busy chatting outside(I contemplated ringing the restaurant while at my table to... More
