Went here with friends who live locally - they're regular visitors and I can see why. Very welcoming staff and the whole place has a warm feeling to it. Random and interesting décor, convivial atmosphere with table quite close together but by no means intrusive. Excellent food (I can vouch for the stone bass, and my partner had probably the... More

We were all absolutely blown away by the food on Saturday night! Perfectly cooked and seasoned - I had fish hot pot which was exceptional - perfect portions. Wonderful staff who just got on with their work quietly and efficiently. (I can't bear it if you get asked every 5 seconds by a different person if 'everything is alright'. They... More

The staff were very welcoming and made us feel welcome. The lighting was very intimate and the food was excellent. There was a wide choice... More

I have not written a TripAdvisor review before, but feel that my trip to Gimbals definitely warrants one. I went for a mothers' day afternoon tea, which was priced at £25 a head. Right from booking, the service seemed genuine and pleasant. Because I enquired on a day when the manager (I believe this is her position) was not working... More

We had been here before and really enjoyed it but for some reason this wasn't as good. Possibly because we had recently eaten in a mindblowing veggie restaurant in Prague so this didn't seem as good or maybe because we stuck in the backroom which was blooming freezing and felt being on the foodie naughty step. One factor was clearly... More

Friend in Cardiff recommended this restaurant to us. From start to finish it was an unforgettable evening. We were greeted warmly and with sincerity. The owners were cook and front of house and incredibly welcoming. The two young men serving us were without doubt the most polite and attentive waiters without being obtrusive. The food was beyond all our expectations.... More

Good staff, a lovely bit of meat and nice decor. The only fault would be, for me, the sauce with my steak was a bit tasteless but other than that it was a solid performance.
