Sublime Tapas in.... Wales !!!

Excuse the dot dot dots and triple exclamation marks, but if you've ever tried to get a decent plate of food in Wales that (a) isn't a curry or (b) isn't buried under a bucket of chips, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Anyone who has 'travelled' Spain will understand the joy of Tapas. Here... read more

My family and I are regulars to bar 44 in Cowbridge. I really can't big it up enough, I have never had a bad thing on the menu. The surrounding are great and there is always a good, buzzing atmosphere even when the restaurant is quite. I would recommend the dates wrapped in bacon, I've never had anything like them... More

Great Tapas bar on the high street in Cowbridge. Good menu and nice atmosphere. Can get very busy at weekends so wise to book.

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 offered to change it for something else.... 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.
