Went on a gentle Tuesday afternoon. Great attentive service, along with a fantastic selection of food. Sunshine pouring through the window really adds to the authenticity of the place. Looking forward to trying their other locations.

If you are lover of tapas, this is the right place to go. Steep stairs to get up are the only downside! Cocktails are nice, food is presentable and taste nice with some very interesting twists. Deserts are great. Would recommend to all with no walking difficulties.

Lovely place but sadly unable to sit and relax as a lot of people out and eating. Coctails a bit pricey but it's a joy seeing the bar person making it

Lovely food. Excellent value for money. Superb and attentive service. As an aside its not somewhere I would go for a romantic meal due to the acoustics but it's a great social eatery. Thanks!

The food is always great here - the only reason I haven't given it a 5 star review is because of the price - it's a bit too steep. However, the atmosphere and the cocktails are fab and the food is authentic tapas etc. I would recommend for couples and friends on a night out but not families - there... More

We had a selection of tapas dishes which were all lovely . The service was very good , with friendly and helpful staff. A seat in the window was an ideal spot to sit with sunshine pouring in . A great atmosphere and I will definitely come again.

We have visited Bar 44 on a few occasions, but don’t quite get it. Some just pop in for a drink or two; though they also serve food here. It’s a small place which gets busy, so you are likely to have someone’s rear end hoovering over your overpriced Tapas. This is exactly what we witnessed on our late visit,... More

Everything about our visit was fantastic. Comfortable seats, great choice of drinks and excellent service. The tapas was so good, really tasty and a good range to choose from. Lamb meatballs, prawns in chilli and garlic and the cheese with relish all highly recommended. We tried the Spanish lagers and cider and even the home brewed pale ale. A lot... More

Had a lovely lunch for my wife's birthday and would highly recommend here to anyone. Brilliant range of tapas, incredible range of drinks and very reasonably priced for variety and quality of food!! Well worth the 50 mile round trip and will certainly be coming again!

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
