Sustainable Small Plates And Fire Cooking Shine At New Venture From Top Cardiff Restaurateurs

Kindle, as the name suggests, cook up a storm the good ol' fashioned way: on roaring flames. The sustainable restaurant in Cardiff is offering up delish dishes made with local seasonal ingredients in a gorgeous outdoor setting.

This is a new venture from Phill and Deb Lewis, who are well-known in South Wales for Dusty's pizzerias and their cosy bistro, Nook. The pair are the fairy godparents of the Welsh dining world, making Kindle their Cinderella - and, boy, what a transformation. From an abandoned cottage in Sophia Gardens to rustic restaurant beauty, this spot delivers on stripped-back style. The outdoor seating in the pretty pergola-framed courtyard is made of reclaimed wood and recycled materials, for a relaxed but vibrant meal.

A visit to this foodie haven will see you sink your teeth into small plates courtesy of popular former chef at The Walnut Tree, Tom Powell, including lamb galbi (Korean BBQ short ribs) and monkfish with a tarragon emulsion. He'll be cooking with the best ethically sourced and traceable produce, thanks to Kindle's close ties to farmers, gardeners and gamekeepers. Meanwhile, you'll swill this fresh, fire-cooked feast down with sips of natural wine.
