We recently visited Pier 64 which is situated on the waterfront which makes it a great location. The restaurant is very modern and on the Friday we visited busy. The lunchtime menu is very reasonable for a high end restaurant with a good choice but not overwhelming. For starters we had fish cakes, two lovely and flavoursome cakes with relish... More

Me and my partner booked for Valentines night - we paid a £20 deposit and heard very good things off other people who had visited so we were expecting good things! We got to the door and 3 members of staff ignored us so I had to call someone over to ask if we could be sat at our table!... More

This contemporary restaurant is in a fabulous location overlooking Penarth Marina. I had lunch there recently and even on a dull day it was great to eat whilst looking out on the boats. I had lunch off the set menu which has limited choice. The fishcakes were good, the steak fine for the price. Service was good too.

Food here is very good quality and the service usually perfect - reflected in the fairly high prices. Steak and seafood are their specialty. Their wine selection is excellent but slightly overprices compared to other restaurants in Cardiff. Summertime is best when you can sit on the veranda overlooking the marina. Make sure you go at lunchtime when it's sunny... More

Visited with a friend for coffee. We sat looking out at the Marina which was bathed in sunshine. The staff were friendly and the restaurant menu looked delicious. Will definitely visit again for lunch.

I went here with my parents and sister as they always rave about this place and I hadn't been. It is really nice inside but I imagine it's even nicer in the summer with the terrace on the pier. My sister and I had cocktails which were really nice and there is a great selection. The menu is very varied... More

I went to Pier 64 for lunch on Friday. I had previously written an unflattering review some 18 months ago. My experience was totally different. Helpful staff and excellent food. I had sardines as a starter, steak as a main. Both dishes were excellent. The staff could not have been more attentive and the cost was very reasonable some 12... More
