Love their food

Love their tapas. Especially the hake and the tortilla. But disappointed that the new menu didn't include a few more salady things. I used to love the gem lettuce with manchego but that's not on the menu any more. Didn't like the mussels and didn't eat them, but manager was really attentive and... read more

What a delightful experience! Food is fresh, authentic and delicious! Bar 44 in All three locations provides outstanding food, incredible service and excellent value for money! The true tapas bar ambience is replicated with style, class and an experience to savour! Whichever of the three you chose to visit will not be disappointed! The opening of Bar 44 in Westgate...

A lively atmosphere and great for coffee, lunch and dinner. Great tapas menu. Up a flight of stairs and two more for the toilets so not so good for those with mobility issues.

This place is always great and I've never been let down. Cocktails are lovely and tapas very good. The Sunday lunch options are particularly nice. Nice atmosphere and fab staff.

Visited twice, first time was nice, so returned. Food on second visit was not as good, restaurant was quiet so would expect the opposite as first visit it was extremely busy due to food festival in Cowbridge. Nice selection of tapas on menu but it's a bit hit or miss.

We were all looking forward to visiting this restaurant however we were faced with: -All tapas dishes being served seperately and one of our party were left with nothing when everyone else had all of their food. -The staff then forgot to serve his chips and he had to go and ask for them, after about 5 minutes the waitor...

This is not the first time we have dined at this restaurant. We have tried Tapas at other local venues but this is the best place we have found in South Wales if you want more authentic Tapas style food. The menu choice is excellent and rather than order everything at the start you can order each dish as and... More

Went along on off chance with friends. Ordered a White Lady followed by Vodka Martini. The best I've tasted in a long time!

The service was excellent , the setting quite ordinary. The food was poor as the salad was dry and lifeless. Our chips arrived in a basket with large black 'bad' portions on them. Does anyone look or care what they are serving?
