my friend, her son and I had lunch in Cafe Minuet, not for the first time I hasten to add. Cafe Minuet serves cheap and delicious Italian food. What really stood out for me today was how solicitous and helpful they were with us today. They made room for us despite being pretty full, and accommodated the needs of my... More

I love this place. I love the home cooked, fresh, Italian food for great prices. Ok the place is a bit cramped and cold but I can't fault anything else. Cardiff is full of unimaginative rip off chain type restaurants and this restaurant is a breath of fresh air. I ate fish in a white wine cream sauce with spinach... More

Walked in for lunch before Wales v. SA match. Good speedy service. Food was excellent. No reservation made. Conveniently located just around the corner from the Angel Hotel.. Will use again on next occasion.

Whent here a few weeks ago with my sisster for lunch l. We were lucky to get a seat at lunch time as I have often walked past and this place has been full to the brim which is perhaps the only downfall as you may have to wait for a table. The decor of this place isn't the best... More

Had to queue for table but didn't mind as been told it would be worth it - it was so so worth it! All I can say is that it was stunning and would definitely be going back when in Cardiff again

Love this place. Started eating here over 20years & was introduced by a friend. The Mendelsson is to die for & you can choose how hot. Tagliatelle with chicken fillet strips & a tomato & chilli sauce... Mmm tastes 100% better than it sounds. They do great on the go slippers (like a pizza) It's a small family run business.... More

The menu is quite varied with a... More
