Staying at the St David hotel and looking for somewhere special to eat, found this restaurant which looks great, big mistake, not felt welcome on arrival, squeezed into a small table. Food 3 star, staff 1 star.

Firstly the scenery is unique to Cardiff, sitting on a pier. The building inside and out is modern, tidy and modest. The food here is spectacular. From my experience of eating here of over 10 years I've developed a taste of the menu and can...More

Set in a magnificent glass structure on the bustling Cardiff Bay, Bosphorus showcases modern Turkish cuisine and European seafood dishes. As well as simmering casseroles and a sultan's feast inspired by the Ottoman Empire, guests can enjoy succulent cuts from the grill. Enjoy uninterrupted views of the water and the neighbouring quay from the dining room, or relax out on the jetty-style al fresco terrace.
