Bar 44 continues to be consistently excellent. The combination of regular tapas and some specials provides plenty of choice. The lamb meatballs are a favourite - and always 2 portions needed. Service is friendly.

The Bar 44 Group of Tapas Bars are all slightly different with their own unique menus and ambience. There is, however, one common theme which runs through them all....the passion and desire to bring the very best food, drink and hospitality from modern Spain to the heart of South Wales - Cowbridge, Penarth, Cardiff
