“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Lovely food with quick polite service. Not the cheapest around but well worth the money. The setting was lovely and had really good views of the bay. Make sure you look in the Dahl gallery upstairs.

“Beautiful little Church!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Our Swedish friend on her first visit to UK, She found the visit to this sweet little church quite a moving experience. She could not understand why, but she was clearly moved. I took my late mum to this church before she died, and the visit moved my mum as well. I think its because of all the seamen who have lost their lives at sea, but who knows. Come to the bay, and see this sweet church for yourself. Glad it has remained as it always has.

“Norwegian Sailors' church in Cardiff - Nice place to Visit”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This former church used to be the place for visiting Norwegian sailors to pray and a home from home when in port. It has fallen into disuse on this front but has since found a new lease of life.
We went inside and had some great coffee and cake while on a visit to the Bay area. The coffee and cakes are to die for, do try some .......
It plays hosts to exhibitions by various artists and also has cultural events which is a great way to make use of this pretty building.
By the way, the staff are a wonderful bunch of people, very helpful and considerate.
Outside is a memorial statue to the ill fated Antartic explorer Captain Scott.

“A religious experience with a diffeence”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Situation in Cardiff Bay is unique as is the church. The cafe is also worth the walk and the food wonderful. Very popular with the local workforce and visitors alike. Highly commend.
