  • A fantastic redevelopment. Great choice of food and the national assembly is amazing. We ate at Las Iguanas where the food and cocktails were excellent. 
  • We walked to Cardiff Bay and across to Penarth via the barage. Its a peaceful walk and beautiful views of the bay and of Penarth as you approach it. 
  • Walked the area whilst waiting for our show in the millennium centre.. Very nice,spotlessly clean with plenty of eating places to satisfy anyone..

  • A lovely place to visit, with a few gift shops and many restaurants. They loose 1 star because 1/2 the restaurants appear to be Italian so not as good a choice as you would hope.
  • On this wonderful May 5th sunny day we visited and had the lunch time menu. Sat outside on the terrace I had the 3 course introductory menu of : 1 A superb corgette and pea rissoto it was outstanding I have to say. 2. A huge fishcake with prawns and laid on samphire and cockles. Served with a hollandaise sauce and a soft poached egg. It was beyond amazing. 3. Pancotta with fruits and ginger cake pieces. Original and delicious. All this was £10.50 get down there before the prices go up.
  • Brilliant!
