Two of us for a birthday evening meal and I'm a fish lover. Slightly disappointed at the relatively narrow menu, but all the dishes (sardines, wild bass and poached pear) were nice, especially the wild bass. Poached pear in white wine was pleasant but no...More

This is a very cool restaurant. The staff are friendly and courteous and the food is wonderfully, imaginatively presented. I found the use of herbs with the dessert particularly interesting. The chef has a very light touch and his creations are delicious.

Located in the suburbs of Pontcanna, Cardiff, this fish restaurant offers excellent value set menu lunch. Goid service and food is top quality and I thoroughly recommend trying. Toffee cheesecake with berries and ice cream a must try.

Hello, I work in Belle Toujours a salon on Cathedral Road. Give the restaurant a bell and no doubt they's be able to email you something. What's on the menu depends on the local catch!
