The Real Italian Pizza Co.

The Real Italian Pizza Company rocked up onto the Cardiff food scene quite quietly, but I read a review of their food over at Soliciting Flavours and quite fancied going there. Not enough to do anything about it mind until I bought a Living Social voucher for two starters and two pizzas for £17.50. And then…

Hang Fire Southern Kitchen

I’ve been wanting to go to Hang Fire ever since they turned up on the Cardiff food scene, but unfortunately, it was never to be as we were never in the right place at the right time. But, our luck has changed now that the lovely Hang Fire ladies have found themselves a permanent home…

Cardiff’s Best Burger

This post is more of a declaration of love, than a review. Done well, a burger is one of my guiltiest, most wonderful pleasures and can be dressed up in so many ways. I’m feeling the need to talk about my favourite place for burgers, and make no apologies for my party political broadcast style…

The Discovery

The Discovery is one of the pubs owned by local chain Knife and Fork Food, with an impressive array of gastro pubs in Cardiff and Penarth. They are also the former owners of the now sadly closed Woods Brasserie which used to be in the pilotage building down the bay. Knife and Fork took on The…

Cote Brasserie – Mill Lane

I’ve been to Cote a couple of times now, both the branch down the Bay, and the newer one on Mill Lane. For me, Cote is a fall back for a meal out which you know will be good. The easy online booking system also means that it’s quick to sort out, and you know…

Barley and Rye

Barley and Rye seems to have made it onto the restaurant scene in Cardiff fairly quietly at the beginning of this year, and I haven’t seen too much about it from my fellow food bloggers. Since I spotted the menu online, I have wanted to go there and finally booked to go with my other…

Sunday Lunch at the Cameo Club 

I’m going to be up front right at the start – the above is the only picture I took of the meal, but let’s be honest it’s the only one you need to see for a single course Sunday lunch! Anyway, we’d been wanting to try out the Cameo Club on Wellfield Road since it…

The Corran, Laugharne 

The Corran Resort and Spa is a lovely little retreat just outside of Laugharne. We found it completely by chance as we were looking for a spa break to spend our Christmas money on (yes, we’ve reached the point where we get joint Christmas presents after nearly 9 years together – a notion alien to…

The Hellenic Eatery

For those of you who haven’t heard of the Hellenic Eatery, it’s a little slice of Greek goodness in Cardiff. If you love Greek food, a relaxed atmosphere and feeling like you are on holiday when you are on Crwys Road, then get yourself down there now! This was our second visit to the Hellenic…

Chapel 1877

For some reason, Chapel 1877 (or The Chapel) on Churchill Way is just one of those places that we haven’t got round to trying out despite it being on the list since it opened. We popped in for a drink with friends last summer, but only got round to actually eating there the weekend after…

The Stable

We were invited to The Stable for a complimentary meal by the manager after a less than enjoyable experience on their opening weekend when we visited the bar. Whilst the meal we received was complimentary, I was under no obligation to write a review, and you will see that I am as honest as always…

Five Guys

I’ve been putting off going to Five Guys for a while now if I’m honest. Whilst I do buy from chains and the likes of McDonalds and Burger King are my guilty pleasures for a quick meal after a long day, I try to support local businesses when I go into town for food. So…
