GO Fine Dining In Cardiff

Fine Dining in Cardiff Whether it’s an extra special occasion, a romantic dinner for two or if you just fancy a slap-up meal, Cardiff has a lot to offer when it comes to fine dining.

If you’re looking for cooking that’s truly spectacular then you will not find much better than the five star Tides Marco Pierre White Restaurant, which is situated within the St David’s Hotel complex on Cardiff Bay. The modern interior has large windows overlooking the bay and the emphasis is most definitely on elegance, which helps set the mood for fine dining perfectly. The menu includes gorgeous meat and seafood dishes.

Despite what its name might suggest, Le Cassoulet (French for meat and bean stew) is a swanky eatery with an impressive menu of fine French cuisine and an a la carte lunch. Toulouse-Lautrec posters hang on the walls but there is no cabaret or music here, it is a quiet establishment perfect for impressing someone special or a prospective business client.

For a taste of the Algarve, head out of the city centre to the upmarket Portuguese restaurant, The Lanterns [map] on Whitchurch Road. With the feel of a traditional taverna, this restaurant comes complete with authentic Portuguese decor and an impressive menu of seafood and vegetarian dishes. It’s the perfect place to escape the city centre for a night without having to miss out on what Cardiff has to offer.

Situated in the Cardiff Hilton hotel you’ll find the hugely popular Razzi's Bar and Restaurant [map], which is undoubtedly one of the most fashionable city centre spots to be seen in. It's upmarket, classy and attracts a clientele of rich business customers along with a few celebrities, who are attracted to the menu that features a Sunday carvery, a la carte dinner and the best in Mediterranean cuisine.

Another of Cardiff’s most stylish eateries is the Wood’s Brasserie [map], with its chic ambience, minimalist decor and extensive menu. Lcoated on Stuart Street in the trendy Cardiff Bay area, this restaurant goes all out to present its food artistically, making it an ideal venue for that special occasion. The menu includes homemade breads, oysters, calf's liver and duck, with desserts ranging from ultra-rich chocolate creations to lighter fruit cake. Be warned though, it’s so popular that you’ll definitely have to book in advance.

For fantastic modern French cuisine in a cheerful environment leave the hustle and bustle of the city centre and head for Le Gallois [map] in the Canton area of the city. This small, split-level restaurant has won recommendations in The Good Food Guide and although the menu is short, it is changed regularly to make sure people keep going back for more.

Also situated in Canton is Sergio’s, a gourmet, family-run Italian/French restaurant presided over by a chef who has worked in Italy and France and combines the best of both for culinary inspiration. The menu offers imaginative chicken and duck dishes alongside creamy pastas and risottos, and with seating for 80 people, party bookings are more than welcome.

Finally, back in the city centre you’ll find the Celebrity Restaurant set within the impressive St David's Hall. Original artwork graces the walls here, and the cuisine lives up to the surroundings through its interesting mix of Welsh and European themes. Evening opening times here depend on concert hall performances so booking is highly recommended.
