Best places to dine in Cardiff
Cardiff is becoming a popular place to visit with its shopping arcades, Millennium Centre concert venue and Principality Stadium. It is also packed with restaurants and bars around the waterfront, in the city centre and in the suburbs. Visitors and residents alike have plenty of choices for dining, whatever their tastes and budgets.
Five good Cardiff restaurants:
- Casanova is an Italian restaurant that was opened by three Italian friends in 2005. The high quality of the food is a result of the combination of fresh, local produce and authentic imports, including pasta, truffles and salami. The seasonal menu is complemented by an Italian wine list.
- Mint and Mustard is a treat for those who enjoy Indian cuisine. The food has a Keralan influence, resulting in fresh, light and healthy dishes. The food is freshly cooked every time and has only natural colours and flavours.
- The Potted Pig is a spacious subterranean restaurant housed in what used to be a bank vault. As the name suggests, pork dishes feature heavily on the menu, although other modern British dishes are also part of the regularly changing food selections. The drinks menu has been carefully selected to complement the food and includes wines, lagers, ales and ciders as well as an extensive selection of gins.
- Arbennig is a family-run restaurant in Pontcanna, located a brief walk from the city centre. The menu changes weekly to offer diners a range of dishes that make the most of fresh, seasonal produce. Bread is handmade daily from organic, stoneground flour. Enjoy a two-course lunch here for just £12.95.
- Bully's has built up a reputation in Cardiff since 1996 for providing great-tasting food in a quirky atmosphere. It was awarded Wales AA Restaurant of the Year for 2014-15. The food is created from seasonal Welsh produce and accompanied by a well-chosen selection of French wines.
