I have eaten at the Park House on several occasions. The first was a business lunch which was excellent and I could not fault the food which was first class. The second and third visits were not as good though. The second was an office Christmas party and despite being full the food was again very good. However the staff... More

Park House Restaurant Cardiff A beautiful building which on first impression consists of a very large staircase which dominates the entrance hall. Parking and access are a problem especially if you are disabled. The toilets at the Park House are a majestic climb up the stairs and the ladies are the furthest away. I am not sure this place is...

We had the seven course tasting menu. The restaurant is fairly dark and looks very much like a gentleman's club - which isn't surprising, because that is what it was before opening to the public. The building is listed and very impressive, although that does mean a hike to the toilets, especially for the ladies. Initially the staff can appear... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. You will never... More

We went for a pre-theatre meal and arrived a bit late due to traffic. The staff were wonderful, friendly and made us very welcome. I cannot praise the food enough. The flavours were subtle, interesting and truly wonderful. We didn't want the meal to end and will be back as soon as possible. It's not cheap but, for the quality... More

A great evening of fabulous food and exceptional champagne. The Cristal and Vintage Louis Roederer evening. We gathered together for this gastronomic spectacular, all seated around one large table. A triumph for the chef and for Louis Roederer! The only thing that let this evening and establishment down was the unexplained late arrival of some of the guests, which meant... More
