Description: Restaurant Minuet was established in 1986, we are a small family run business serving genuinely home cooked Italian food with a difference. It started with a simple menu but over the years it has developed into what it is today. Our aim is not to serve pretentious, overpriced food with a drizzle of sauce, but serve good tasty wholesome dishes with the majority of which are our own recipes at honest prices. Our customers will enjoy their meal in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere to the soothing sound of specially selected pieces of classical music, that has inspired so many of our dishes. We are not licensed to serve wine and spirits, but you are welcome to bring your own. Corkage is free. Please note that during busy times there will be other customers waiting for a table, as we don't charge for alcohol time will be restricted. Please respect other diners waiting for a table.

Popped in for lunch. Just a few doors away from Pizza Express - which was empty.
Minuet was, on the other hand, bustling and charming. I had a pizza marguerita and salad
which was just how it should be - and very reasonably priced. If you read music have a glance
at the music scores on the walls and have a smile. I was told that no-one had noticed the -
mistakes? before. Or at least had not mentioned it.

Having read the trip advisor reviews for this little place I couldnt wait to try it. Great food at a really great price. My husband had the sea food Spaghetti and I had the Stuffed pancakes......really tasty and with soft drinks the bill came to £15!!

WIll definately nip in again the next time we are in Cardiff that's for sure.

We have been regulars for over 20 years. Nadine and her staff are maintaining and even enhancing the reputation of this little gem. Food is always wonderful, I have had just about everything on the menu over the years. The spinach dishes are unusual and highly recommended, the minestrone soup is a meal in itself. We were there by 12 on Saturday and there was a queue by the time we left so get there early.

The food in here is excellent. A really, quiet, lovely little place, the smells that float through Castle Arcade will invite you in, and the high quality food and great prices will ensure you return. Well worth a visit if you are in Cardiff!

We had the James Bowman (recommended by the waitress) and the spinach pancakes. Both were so very tasty! It was well worth the hunt to find this little gem. With each dish just over £6 it was the best value meal we have ever had! The staff were totally amazing, the service was speedy and nothing was too much trouble. Just sorry we haven't found it before! Thank you!
