Restaurant recommendation?

Hi

We are coming over to Cardiff to see Avenue Q and looking for nice restaurant for an early pre theatre dinner? Any recommendations?

We will try anything but would least like Chinese

Many thanks

At the New Theatre, I have no idea about the show either my partner has wanted to see it for ages though...

We are staying at the Radisson so anywhere near to either would be good

Thanks

You've got loads of choice, but a couple to consider are the Laguna Bar in the Park Plaza Hotel http://www.lagunakitchenandbar.com/index.php which is about 30 seconds' walk from the New Theatre.

Bellinis in Park Place is equally close - http://www.bellinisitaliano.com/antipasti.htm and Browns is about a minute's walk away - browns-restaurants.co.uk/locations/cardiff/.

The in-place a the mo, but probably not pre-theatre, is the Potted Pig - http://www.thepottedpig.com/dinner-menu. Haven't been there myself, but heard plenty of good things.

I'm sure you'll get more suggestions!

I'd agree with the Valentino's recommendation...great little indepdent Italian with good value pre-theatre menu and only round the corner from the New Theatre itself.

Avenue Q is brilliant, I'll be seeing it for the 3rd time on Friday! As for restaurants I would second Beliinis on Park Place, I've eaten there a fair bit, always a good meal and very close to the New Theatre.

lots of places...if ur happy to visit generic places you could get a resturant voucher online on a website such as vouchercodes.co.uk and take the printed voucher to one of the resturants in the city center...

although there is a lovely italian 2mins walk from the theater-Bellins and also Henrys bar opposite Bellinis which does upperclass pub food...lovely place... there are loads of resturants near the theater :-)

Thanks for all your replies, we did go for a drink in Henrys bar it was nice but really busy after the rugby :)

We ended up getting tapas for lunch and then a cab over to Moshk after the theatre which was well worth.

Thanks again x
