Very tasty Sunday lunch, only let down by the fact that our plates, for all three courses, were less than clean. Around the edge of each plate was a film of grease, albeit only a slight film, but nevertheless something that should not be present....More

Husband took me to Bully’s for my birthday recently as we’d heard good things. Don’t get me wrong, the food was lovely and I really like the quirky wall decor, but.... Can’t help but feel that the food is overpriced a tad. There didn’t seem...More

Went on a Sunday for my mother in law’s birthday. The salmon and heirloom tomato and goats cheese starter were light and refreshing. The beef sirloin main was the best roast I have ever had. And I don’t say that lightly. Beef was pink and...More

Incredible quirky and eclectic decor, lovely atmosphere and amazing staff -- been twice now and one of my favourite places this end of Cardiff. Unprententious, French-inspired cuisine, fresh ingredients, menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal produce.

Having visited Bully’s a number of times previously it never fails to impress. Booked a table for 2 earlier that day and then asked later to add an additional couple to the booking 2 hours before arriving, not a problem was the answer. The food...More

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.
