What they say:

The first ever Australasian-specific restaurant in Wales has opened up in Cardiff Bay and it looks delicious. The venue itself is a relaxed affair, with a splattering of sofas and thatched tables, all with a calming, mellow colour scheme. The alfresco space is perfect on a summer’s day for one reason: the unimpeded views of the bay. Ideal for tucking into the summery food menu.

What we say:

With a beautiful view outside, you need food to compliment that, and they’ve got just the thing with their menu that takes influence from the vibrant nations of Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Japan and Sri Lanka.  All the dishes are made with seasonal Welsh produce, delivering dishes like lemongrass-marinated Welsh lamb rump with coriander couscous, red pepper and tenderstem broccoli. To accompany it, you’ve got a strong selection of wines, as well as beers, and a rum-heavy cocktail menu.
