Absolutely love Cafe Minuet, have been visiting for years and is one of my favourite restaurants.. Not one bad thing to say, perfect food, great menu, reasonable prices and quick, friendly service! Wish they opened in the evening!

I must say, it's one of the best in Cardiff, conveniently located in the Arcade near the Castle. If you're looking for a place to eat you should really consider this little gem. Can become a bit crowded but the reason for that is because...More

We chose this place after reading favourable reviews on here. We visited shortly after arriving in Cardiff and needed a late lunch, and it was round the corner from our hotel. It was tasty and good value. Staff were welcoming too. We would visit again.

Description
Restaurant Minuet was established in 1986, we are a small family run business serving genuinely home cooked Italian food with a difference. It started with a simple menu but over the years it has developed into what it is today. Our aim is not to serve pretentious, overpriced food with a drizzle of sauce, but serve good tasty wholesome dishes with the majority of which are our own recipes at honest prices. Our customers will enjoy their meal in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere to the soothing sound of specially selected pieces of classical music, that has inspired so many of our dishes. We are not licensed to serve wine and spirits, but you are welcome to bring your own. Corkage is free. Please note that during busy times there will be other customers waiting for a table, as we don't charge for alcohol time will be restricted. Please respect other diners waiting for a table.
