GO Budget Restaurants in Cardiff

Budget Restaurants in Cardiff South Wales offers great value for money and recently the British Tourist Authority confirmed this by citing Cardiff as one of the best value cities in the world. So it will be no surprise to hear that when it comes to eating out on the cheap, Wales’ capital city has a number of culinary delights on offer.

If you’re after a no frills hearty meal then try the charming Louis Restaurant [map] on St Mary Street, which is a firm favourite among old ladies and bargain-hungry students. This old-fashioned tearoom serves well priced basic food in lavish quantities until 7.45:00pm Monday to Saturday.

For those looking for an inexpensive lunch head to the funky Celtic Cauldron café [map] on Castle Arcade, which is dedicated to offering a range of simple Welsh food. Everything from soups and stews to laver bread and cakes is on the menu, which helps to attract shoppers, workers and tourists alike.

Heading out of the city centre you’ll find Cibo [map], which is located just off Cathedral Road where the majority of Cardiff’s B&Bs are. Serving tasty ciabatta sandwiches, pasta, pizza and desserts along with a choice of daily specials, this small, cheap and welcoming restaurant provides a slice of Italy in Cardiff.

The hugely popular American diner Sskilletss [map] on Newport Road claims to be the city’s original 'all you can eat' restaurant. For a fixed price you can tuck into steaks, seafood, salads, poultry and Welsh lamb among other delights, and there is a separate menu for the kids.

Situated on North Road, Savastanos [map] is another hip-and-happening restaurant offering good value for money. It’s a great place to go for a special occasion as it has a fun and friendly atmosphere and imaginative food on the menu.

Other eateries where you’re bound to pick up a tasty bargain are Brown’s Coffee Shop and Bar Europa, which are both centrally located.

Popular with the local business trade, Brown’s Coffee Shop offers baguettes, jacket potatoes and sandwiches with fillings such as chicken tikka, Brie and grape and smoked bacon. There's a small seating area, but on a sunny day it's nicer to take your lunch to one of the many public benches in the area.

Bar Europa [map] is a small, friendly cafe opposite Cardiff Castle, which is frequented by the city's young and trendy set. Here you can choose from a simple range of dishes, including tortellini, jacket potatoes, baguettes and bagels, as well as a huge range of teas, hot chocolates and coffees. There is also a licensed bar and you can pass the time by helping yourself to an array of books and newspapers on offer.
