Excellent choice of food and drink. Nice place particularly on a nice day. Lots to see and do, history and modern art sculptures and all the usual chain pubs and restaurants.

Cardiff Bay is a vibrant place for an evening out, the amount of different restaurants is almost overwhelming, but no matter which one you chose, you will not be disappointed. From Burgers at Eddie's Diner to pizza at Strada, from Asian "Fast food at Wagamama to Breakfast or dinner at Bill's there is a restaurant for every taste. If you... More

Had a few hours to spare so visited The Bay. Nice reasonable car parking to start and plenty of it. All the coffee shops, cafes and restaurants were open for business and well priced and most busy. A pity some of the businesses near St Davids hotel appear to have given up. Just around this hotel everything looks tired and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed wandering and exploring Cardiff Bay Area. Very cold December day but sonics to enjoy. Excellent. If you are visiting a show at the millennium centre then park in the Q park and pay for your token in the centre - a lot cheaper!

Took a stroll around Cardiff Bay from the hotel I was staying in. Seems to be mainly restaurants and bars with a few sights to see. Great views out into the Bay especially as a little windy

The Bay in Cardiff has quickly become one of my favourite afternoons out. With an array of places to eat and drink and plenty to do with the Millennium Centre, the Welsh Assembly, the Norweigen Church and boat trips it really does make for a lovely afternoons entertainment.

Nice bayfront with great range and choice of restaurants. Great view if you are on a look out for a great eatery with a view. Plenty of food choices. Average for me as it was another wet and icy cold rain day in Cardiff with my young children. Was not really in the mood for a good relax meal and... More
