Family lunch

Visited here on Saturday 18 July for lunch with family to celebrate 2 special occasions. Table booked at 2pm but despite arriving early we were accommodated swiftly. This is a lovely place in a lovely setting with a vast choice of food, our issue was service and quantity. We were tended to by no... read more

Fantastic lunch yet again, plenty of choice. Great value at £11.95 for two courses. Needed a walk afterwards as we were full up!

We were a party of 14 to celebrate my daughters graduation that day.After reading mixed reviews and my first visit to El Puerto I was a bit dubious. I need not have worried the food was lovely,the service excellent and the waiters were superb. I must mention the Manager in charge that day was very helpful as one of the... More

My wife and I have eaten here regularly for the past 11 years and have enjoyed a beautiful meal every time. Expertly cooked food that is seasonal, fresh and sourced locally. My favorite restaurant in all of South Wales.

This is a great restaurant to visit, great food with some excellent wine choices! The staff are friendly and professional with excellent service skills. The steaks are definitely worth a try and you can choose your own!!

Bad general and food service - you have to go up to the counter to select your food and the person serving couldn't have been less interested or helpful! Also really surprised at the high prices - £15.95 for a piece of salmon with an insignificant tasteless sauce. I'd say the fish is bought in bulk, nothing special. And DON'T... More

Bad service. left after waiting 20min for a menu on a sleepy Thursday afternoon. uncomfortable vibe, no sense of hospitality. Kind of sad that such a beautiful and interesting building should be home to such a mediocre business. Doesn't promote Cardiff as a modern British city, just reeks of the provincial weirdness that I dread outside of London. Fortunately lots... More

I love everything about this place, probably one of my favourite restaurants to visit in Cardiff area. Steak is always amazing, service exceptional.
