Ate here 2 years ago and the steak was amazing. This time it was just average. The staff were lovely and so is the place but the steak was tough. No starter this time but looking about the sharing platters looked very good especially the seafood one. I ordered blue cheese sauce but really not sure what I did actually... More

Was very disappointed with the food, wasn't told it was a set menu for match day when we booked, starter had no taste and my steak was dry and almost... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant on a recent visit to Cardiff. We shared a seafood platter, which was about five different sorts of fish and seafood. This was preceded by a potato soup which, I felt, was under seasoned. We finished with a crème brulee. The meal was nice but not outstanding.

We called in to The Meating place after trying to go to the Smokehaus in Cardiff who said they were full even though more than half the tables were empty. They did us a favour what a fabulous meal we had, the ribs were massive and the meat fell off the ribs, the chunky chips were fantastic and my husbands... More

The Meating place is a very good meat restaurant in the center of Cardiff, close to Cardiff Castle (5 minutes walk). The meat is very well cooked and tasty with a broad choice of vegetables. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere of the restaurant very typical. A really nice place for a dinner between friends or colleagues.

What can I say, we first went to the cornerhouse and didnt get served after waiting for 25 minutes so we went for a walk to find somewhere else and I am glad we did. As soon as we walked in, we felt welcomed and although we had to wait 5 minutes, the setting and choice of drinks made us... More
