Excellent with a excellent wine list if in Cardiff give it a go. After you can walk across the barrage towards Cardiff Bay.

My cousins brought us to this delightful restaurant for dinner. The food is very fresh, local and made to order. Absolutely delish. The atmosphere is beautifully relaxed, laid back and conducive to a great glass of wine and conversation.

Best fresh food in the area. Always tastes as good as it looks. See what you are going to eat before it is cooked.

I've heard about this imposing building, the old Customs House at the harbour mouth at Cardiff Bay (Penarth side). This is one of those restaurants where the raw food is displayed in the cabinet, you choose and they cook it to order, quite a tried...More

Well I don't understand how he has had such a bad experience there. the food is marvellous and service isn't really an issue - you order yourself then the food comes 20 minutes later - job done. If he needs a pub then I suggest he uses a pub not a restaurant!
