“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I love this restaurant. Great food, lovely surroundings; luxurious, but not intimidating. Fabulous service. My favourite place to eat in Cardiff. Lunch is extremely good value. the a la carte In The evening is a little expensive- and that is my only complaint.

“Xmas lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

We bought a voucher from Travelzoo for 2 courses from the a la carte lunch menu and a glass of prosecco each. The prosecco was served shortly after we arrived, and was delicious. When we received the menu we were disappointed to see the very limited choice, especially main courses, which consisted of a beef, chicken and a mushroom risotto. As my husband is a non meat eater, the only choice available was the risotto, he did not regard this as good value and requested a fish dish (from the 2 course lunch menu). Following consultation with the chef it was agreed he could have a salmon dish. However, when this was served it consisted of a very small fillet of grilled salmon, which had very little taste, sitting on an spoonful of cabbage, and a portion of what tasted like raw a potato, (which was only partially eaten). I advised my husband to complain but as the restaurant was quite full, he didn't like to make a fuss, (typically British). I ordered the beef which was served with creamy garlic potatoes and was delicious. Both our desserts were excellent and our choice of wine was very good, by quite pricey. The service was good, very and attentive. Based on this experience we would not return, can't imagine anyone paying the full price for what we received.

“Truly special lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

My partner and I visited on a Travelzoo offer which offered a two course lunch from the a la carte menu and a glass of prosecco. We were shown into a lovely room with comfortable chairs and sofas and were served our glasses of fizz in very stylish Verve Cliquot glasses. We each chose pork rillettes as a starter and for mains we chose duck breast and turbot. The pork rillettes were absolutely delicious, three lightly breadcrumbed balls of tender shredded pork which were served with armagnac soaked prunes and a cauliflower puree. An amuse bouche of warm artichoke soup with truffle oil was served next which was a real bonus. The turbot was beautifully cooked and was served with two slices of crispy chicken and vegetables. The duck was incredibly tender and was served with kale and a caramelised orange sauce. All the food was fantastic. The staff were very attentive and thoroughly professional and I cannot wait to return in the new year. A very very special experience at Park House.

“Superb dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you enjoy fine dining in a classy setting, the Parkhouse Club is the place for you! We had our office Christmas meal here this year and all 14 of us agreed that this was the best Christmas meal we have had to date. The food was exquisite, the service was superior and the setting was perfect. In fact, it was so good we are going to book it for next year and can't see us ever going anywhere else for our Christmas parties in the future. Only downside, can we actually wait a whole year to indulge in this experience again? I think the answer is "NO!" We now need a post-Christmas party!
