About
Who needs space to swing a cat when you’ve got a hush-hush reputation as one of Cardiff’s best restaurants? The locals are going to hate us for telling you about this miniscule gem just outside of the centre of town but we’re going to anyway. With just eight mix and match tables in a rustically eclectic dining room Bully’s is intimate and just so perfect for romantic tete-a tetes but also appeals to local media luvvies and business men alike. Incredibly friendly and efficient service is an ideal partner to traditional French dishes cooked by a talented French chef, using wonderful Welsh ingredients.

We visited for Sunday lunch and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Because I have specific allergies, my husband emailed ahead and they made up allergen-free gravy which was very much appreciated (and delicious). From start to...More

A lovely venue and very pleased to see large round tables for bigger parties. Service is exceptional without being overbearing.

The meal I experienced at Bullys was definitely the nicest food I’ve tasted in a long time. It’s very costly but well worth the money as the food is fresh, good quality and presented well. The smoked salmon starter was delicious and it was a...More

Nice arty decor with paintings on every available inch of wall space. Great wine list and authentic French food options. Lovely experience and very attentive, friendly professional staff. Would recommend but quite pricey. This is is for special occasions but is worth the extra spend.

Look - there are a few good elements here; chiefly a good wine list and decent cocktail making. Unfortunately the rest is chiefly style over substance, unbelievably and unapologetically slow service, with a demeanour that would make some diners think that slow was the new...More
