About Bar 44 Cardiff
A lively tapas bar in the heart of the Welsh Capital, directly across the road from the Millennium Stadium.
The restaurant captivates our journey around Spain, showcasing a mix of both traditional and contemporary design.
We are obsessive about Spanish culture, food, wine, and the Spanish way of life.
Tapas y Copas (tapas and drinks) is what we do. Using the finest Spanish produce known to man, coupled with the best local produce we are striving to produce the finest tapas, and our passion with Spain knows no bounds!
Almost everything we serve is made on the premises, or traditionally cured and aged in Spain and carved or cut by ourselves for your pleasure. Our food is complemented by a superb array of drinks. As much effort and passion go into sourcing and creating our drinks as it does our food. Our extensive Cocktail List also has a distinct Spanish flavour to it.
Food was fantastic!
Always a pleasure to visit , food and service are outstanding .
We are regulars at Bar 44. The food is always good, staff are always friendly and helpful. Not the cheapest tapas in town but probably the best.
Great customer service, allowed us to stay on our table past booking time and were very accommodating throughout the night! Stayed on a Friday night which was really busy and had a lovely time with family, will definitely be coming again
Our host was an absolute star, fun, knowledgable about food and drink. all the staff were great and we had a great evening.
Food very tasty, but a little cold. We had the Sunday lunch but it came in Tapas format - i.e. the broccoli, Potatoes, gravy, & Yorkshire came first, then almost 10 minutes later the meat & Cauliflower cheese arrived luke warm, which was weird ! Otherwise, service friendly and nice presentation.
We visit here regularly, food and drink are always spectacular. However service, did not get the waitresses name, was minimal. We were rushed to order when we explained we would like to order as we went along to enjoy our evening. The service was frosty and not the best I have received when visiting previously. Everything else was lovely, it was a quiet night anyway so not much atmosphere but that did not bother us. Will be back :)
Confusion with ordering which led to only half of the main dishes arriving. When they sorted out the mistake the first dishes were cold no offer of reheating or changing the food.
A great lunch and even though we didn’t like one of the dishes we had chosen - the food overall was great and they took it off the bill without us asking. I felt that was great customer service
Lovely evening and great range of food and drinks
Expensive for the portion size and quality of good. Used to be better. Had to ask 3 times for water for the table which eventually turned up at the end of the meal. Basic quality of service poor. Prawns not cooked properly & sent back. I won't be coming back for food but would return for drinks at the bar.
Great atmosphere in this lovely busy bar and restaurant The food was delicious - all of it and a good choice of Spanish wines and wines. Love tapas and this was one of my best tapas experiences in the Uk. Highly recommend it!
Words words words
The only potential negative was the wait between different dishes arriving, however the food was delicious and service fantastic
Gorgeous food, great smooth red wine. Shame that they had run out of calamares and the gluten free bread they provided was just lightly toasted genius bread. Was hoping for some authentic homemade gluten free bread. On a whole though, we would return!
Great food as always
I visited this restaurant with my husband in January. We had a lovely time then. When going on a shopping trip to Cardiff ( l live in Swansea) with my sister l booked for us to on a Saturday lunchtime. Food, service and atmosphere were excellent. I wish there was a similar restaurant in Swansea.
Great service, friendly and quick
A thoroughly enjoyable experience with charming staff and excellent, interesting, beautifully prepared and presented food!
Fabulous tapas restaurant and amazing service.
Lovely food, amazingly good service as well and actually reasonably priced. We'll definitely be back again
Really delightful service and looked after us. Food delicious but portions sizes really variable!!
We love coming here and choose it for any special occasion. Food is delicious, served promptly every time. Great range of drinks to match the food. The servers are always attentive without being intrusive. Would highly recommend.
Food and atmosphere as good as ever, great way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon.
