Myself and a few of my colleagues went for a quick bite to eat lunch time. Service was incredibly slow. It took nearly 45 mins for the mains to arrive. The starter was nice - nachos, but then again how hard is it to make some nachos. The mains were very disappointing. No doubt the most tasteless burrito i've ever... More

We were a group of 10 and visited on a Monday evening. The service and welcome from the staff was friendly and efficient and this continued for the whole of the evening. The food was reasonably priced and the standard was very high - steaks cooked as requested and all very tasty. Highly recommended

We sat outside on our visit here as we were with one of our dogs and this meant we could only choose from the tapas menu. We had a fantastic view of the sunset over the bay and chose 5 tapas plates for £25. They were all beautiful apart from the nachos with melted cheese and toppings, which was cold... More

I 'm not a fan of massive chain restaurants as I always thing they lack the quality of service and food but whenever I am in the bay and need a quick bite to eat I always come here, staff are good and food is always fairly decent

Went for a friends birthday and had a great celebration. Got the wrong dish served and they were extremely nice with replacing it with my vegetarian option. No fuss, and very kind! Lovely range of cocktails, mocktails and great selection of wines! Perfect view from the bay as well! Definitely visiting back soon!

Absolutely love this restaurant!! We tried to get in in the Saturday night without a booking, but being a busy place wouldn't have got in till later on!! Never the less managed to get in on the Sunday! Brilliant service, amazing food! Would recommend the tapas for sharing, there's plenty! The 2 for 1 cocktails and mocktails are a hit... More

I think we were all pretty pleased with our food, it was really nice and came quickly. Cocktails were 2 for 1 on pitchers and glasses which went down very smoothly. Service was great but there was one of those automatic service charges which we obviously didn't pay. Restaurant was a little cold but we warmed up after food. Would... More

After walking around Cardiff for hours we ended up in the bay and chose to visit here as the menu sounded lovely, and they sell Brahma on tap which made it a done deal for my husband!! Great service, very friendly, and a lovely atmosphere even though it was gone 3 on a Saturday afternoon. Yummy nachos to share, a... More
