Me and my husband rarely go for meals due to having young children so when we do we try and go somewhere we know is good...we had never been before and my god it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice. Walked out full and satisfied. Thank you.

If your staying in the city it's well worth a taxi ride to this little gem, don't be put off by its... More

Had lovely set lunch. Had the steak & chips & partner had the chicken. Only 1small issue- would be nice to have few veg or salad with the steak. Have also been here for Sunday lunch & would recommend beef bouginon

We came to the Pot for a family celebration and had a lovely evening in a very relaxed atmosphere. We shared two starters and then all had different main courses. The lamb duo was excellent and everyone else were very pleased with their selection. Only one party member was up for pudding and they were nearly defeated by the amazing... More

We went to The Pot last night for my birthday & had the best meal! My partner is veggie and he was spoilt for choice (which never happens) & the rest of us had trouble choosing as the menu was so good! Eventually I decided on chicken liver pate - which was immense!! Then the beef bourguignon - delicious! And... More

So after reading the reviews my husband and I thought we would try The Pot and disappointed we were not! Our food was absolutely stunning from starter to the dessert. I had the duo of lamb and my husband the rib eye steak, both cooked to absolute perfection. The only (and very slight) negative would be the table we were... More

Just had starter, main and dessert. All courses fantastic and unbelievably tasty. Delicious Tarteflette! Great Value and great food. Only observation - would be good to dim the lights. But still amazing.

Midweek, not a lot going on, so we decided to eat out. We're new to Cardiff so jumped on trip-advisor. This place was shown, was well recommended and wasn't too far so we decided to try it. For evening meals do NOT use the trip-advisor map location. It is wrong. Look up the Whitchurch road address instead! (it's only up... More

Went for lunch and can only say the food served here is the best I have had in years. For the price tag it's amazing. Friendly service and a chocolate torte to die for, this really will be a place I visit frequently!

Description
Cosy bistro with 40 seats, offering a range of homemade breakfasts and lunches using locally sourced produce, and a range of seasonal drinks. The cafe transforms into a French style bistro every Wednesday through to Saturday evening, serving up classics such as Steak Tartare to start, followed by pan fried seabass with steamed mussels, langoustine & ratatouille, and a brulee to finish. Always a cosy, relaxed atmosphere.
