Best Tappas to date. Superb quality produce and wine. Lovely staff, really relaxed atmosphere, we could have been in Spain. We will be returning very soon. Highly recommended!

Met some old friends for red wine and tapas grazing and was not disappointed. Food was over-shadowed by the wine and reminiscing but the quality was very good. The beef shin with peppers was delicious as were the king prawns and treble cooked chips!

What a find! Warm, cosy, atmosphere; fabulous tapas and good service. However,what a shame that no reservations can be made during the day - not sure about the evening. Also we were disappointed that the 3 choices for £10 was not available over the Christmas period. Nevertheless as usual, we had a first class meal.

The entrance to the Cowbridge Bar 44 is not the best - tucked away up a steep flight of stairs, but the actual restaurant itself is a lovely room with great views over High Street. We were the first customers to order from the revised 3 for £10 tapas menu and were disappointed to find the patatas bravas and tortilla... More

Went here for the first time after several visits to the Penarth restaurant. The food was superb - squid, breads, croquettes, patatas, cheeses etc and the service was excellent. Only complaint is that patatas are not included in the 3 for £10 menu. Will recommend highly - where can you get food and service like this for £10?

By far the best tapas I have ever tried would definitely recommend the dates wrapped in bacon and the triple cooked chips. Making my mouth water thinking about it. Cocktails and atmosphere are brilliant! Be sure to have the churros for dessert! 5* restaurant in every single aspect, can't wait for my next visit!

Pretty small bar but constantly vibrant. Popular with all ages & quality of tapas first class. No booking-just get there early or wait for a table to become available. Staff very helpful (thanks Rhian & Miranda!) and gave great advice. Another favourite in Cowbridge-the one in Cardiff is much bigger with a similar buzz
