Brilliant evening, lovely food & great atmosphere Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.... Good job Nook
Loved the atmosphere- loved the location. A triumph!
Relaxed lunch in perfect setting and delicious plates of food to share with friends
One of the first impressions as we were being seated was the subtle aromas that straight away confirmed this was going to be a unique dining experience. We loved the flavours & location very much. Thank you
Superb food in a great location - keep it open there I say!
Superb food in a wonderful setting and great service, thank you so much!
Great setting by the river, lovely small plates of delicious food to share. The service was top notch. We had a wonderful time.
I think the white wine could have been colder but that’s my only niggle in an incredible menu
After looking every day for a cancellation and wanting to try Nook for several months, my dreams finally came true and I was able to book Nook by the River for my birthday week. The scenery and atmosphere were gorgeous. The members of staff were lovely and accommodating and the food was delicious. However, we were very let down by the lack of food available as two dishes were unavailable due to high demand. As a vegetarian, that meant a third of the options were off the cards and after wanting to try Nook for so long I was hoping to try everything they had to offer. Unfortunately, the two dishes that I was most looking forward to trying (asparagus and broccoli) had run out. I left the restaurant still feeling hungry and even though we ordered another portion of mushrooms to make up for this, it just didn't feel satisfactory since my meal lacked any greens. The staff were very kind and offered the dessert on the house and I understand high demand is difficult to predict but the whole experience was really let down by this. Nevertheless, I would still love to go back and give Nook another go because the food was incredible but I left very sad that I was still hungry and craving more from somewhere I was really looking forward to going to.
Really delicious food and lovely location. Would definitely recommend :)
Really great food, with complex but comforting flavours shining through. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere, and very reasonable prices.
Couldn’t fault anything. Every dish was so delicious and loved the smaller share plate option to be able to try more things. Maybe another dessert option though for us sweet tooth fiends!! Super friendly staff and lovely environment. Look forward to visiting again and again.
We had a lovely evening, thank you. Delicious food and very friendly service. A treat to dine beside the Taff where I spent many hours rowing on the river!
Amazing as always!
The most amazing meal, setting, ambience. We all absolutely loved it, ever dish was perfect.
This is the best meal I have eaten in Cardiff. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. The food was understated and elevated flavour and the atmosphere was perfect.
The whole experience was just superb from signing in to paying the bill. The menu was quite extensive bearing in mind the facilities used to deliver it. Loved trying new dishes which were accompanied by micro herbs that added that extra something. We have booked again - with friends of course!
So delicious, we ordered twice! Accompanied by great setting and service, what more could you ask for?!
We ordered everything off the menu to share, and every single dish was amazing! The enoki mushrooms were my personal favourite and the mango dessert was incredible! Would 100% recommend Nook!
We absolutely loved our time at Nook, could not fault it, I just wish Book by the river was a permanent fixture.
