The Foodie Favourite
The Potted Pig has established itself as an award-winning fine dining restaurant attracting foodies from far and wide. Located in a former bank vault, it provides a chic and intimate atmosphere. It’s seasonal menu offers the very best local Welsh produce and also boasts 30 different types of gin. It’s popular so book early!
The Alternative Option
Bar 44 brings a modern tapas menu to the Welsh Capital and does it very well. An atmospheric destination with great food, a cracking wine menu and they even have sherry on tap. Maravillos!
The Patrick Bateman
Opulence is the order of the day at Chapel 1877, housed within – you’ve guessed it – a converted former chapel. If American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman was visiting Cardiff, this contemporary restaurant would be his first choice. It’s stunning architecture and Good Food Guide winning menu provides a great atmosphere for couples.
