Sometimes, when you visit a town for the first time and look out for a place to eat, you come accross an unexpected jewel. Such is The Corner House in the city center of Cardiff, Wales.
Last year, in May, we spent a weekend in the capital of Wales, mainly to see a performance of Ramin Karimloo in St. David's Hall. Of course we also needed to eat, so we looked out for a decent place to have our dinner.
We happened to come across The Corner House online. As we studied the menu's it appeared to us it would not be a bad place to eat. And on arriving there, we really were positively surprised. Although the place is litte more than a pub, with wooden tables the food on our plates was more than excellent. I had for starters smoked Scottish salmon, while my sister had scallops. We both chose lamb chops for mains and they were so delicious I wanted to lick up the plate!
Better still, they serve a very decent wine and the prices are reasonable. Not quite cheap, but also not very expensive. We payed about 100 € for the two of us.
I can certainly recommend this bistro to everyone who visits Cardiff. It's easy to find, not far from St. David's Hall in the pedestrian zone.
