Gorgeous little dishes to go with lovely wines and crisp fresh beers. The squid melts in the mouth. I've never had anything like it. And as for the hake gougons -wow! Try the bread with iberico ham to go with your drinks. First rate. If you have room try the Spanish creme brûlée. Ooooh. It was a Thursday so not... More

Ordered 5 tapas, and a great bottle of red for both of us to share. Also had a couple of cheeky cocktails and great value withchange from... More

I can only say one word FANTASTIC! The food and drinks are very good. The staff are very nice. My Mother lives on the high street and goes there pretty much every week, she knows the owner of Bar 44 and knows the staff very well. They're warm and friendly. The view is spectacular! All I Can Say Is....GO THERE!

I enjoyed the food but the cocktails seemed watered down? I would return but I do believe it's over priced

My mother lives in Cowbridge, and Bar 44 is just up the road from her. Whenever I visit my mother, we come here very often, for various reasons, whether it's snacks, dinner or lunch. It's always very nice, and so are the drinks. The staff are usually nice, except from one staff member who is pretty glum, otherwise there amazing.... More

Visited on a Saturday lunch. The food was really good - tasty with a great selection. Our order was taken promptly but this was probably the only decent bit of service we received. Bar 44 has a lovely interior - clean with nice design. A good lunch time ambience so all in all pretty good. Just the service that lets... More

I visited Bar 44 on Saturday with a group of friends... We didn't have food, just cocktails!! The cocktail menu was quite extensive and once I ordered at the bar, my cocktail was then brought to the table. They were very well presented and contained a good measure of alcohol. Despite them being quite pricey they were certainly good quality!!... More

Saturday night visit to Bar 44 with friends It was a busy Saturday night which made for a lively convivial evening Bar 44 is renowned for its authentic Spanish Tapas, wines and sherries. The food and drink were excellent and service friendly. Overall great value and venue worth seeking out as is its sister restaurants. In Penarth and Cardiff

The Bar 44 Group of Tapas Bars are all slightly different with their own unique menus and ambience. There is, however, one common theme which runs through them all....the passion and desire to bring the very best food, drink and hospitality from modern Spain to the heart of South Wales - Cowbridge, Penarth, Cardiff
