Steak of the Art

1 user review 5

It's not all about thick cuts of Welsh steak at this popular Cardiff restaurant, though that is a large part of it. Steak of the Art is a modern and diverse restaurant that toes the line between eatery and gallery, showcasing a variety of different artists' work at any one time.

Vivo Latino

Vivo Latino is spicing things up in Cardiff as they bring a fiery taste of South America to our city. The fun Cardiff restaurant is all about the Latin and sunshine interiors, and if you turn up on the right night, you might even catch their roaming magician hitting the tables to do his thing.
