Check out these restaurants for a fine dining experience in the Welsh capital.

Independently owned, Duck Egg Bleu is an under-the-radar jewel in Cardiff’s culinary crown. Known for using the best local ingredients, the restaurant also boasts an extensive wine list that will impress everyone.

Over in the upscale Pontcanna district lies Arbennig, which means special in Welsh. The food is great and there is even an on-site cookery school where you can learn how to make the dishes yourself.

Park House is found inside a grade – listed building, so you will be eating surrounded by history. It has received various awards over the years, and makes for a great treat meal.

Filini is another top choice, this time inside the less historic surroundings of the Radisson Blu in Cardiff’s city center. The focus is on Italian dishes, and you’re sure to leave satisfied.

If you are a fan of Catalan cooking, try La Cuina. This place was founded in 2012 and also puts on Spanish and Catalan conversation evenings if you want to brush up on your language skills.

Another Pontcanna joint, Fish at 85 is famous for, you’ve guessed it, fish. There are fishmongers on staff here so you can ask what to eat from the day’s catch.

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes.
