Limited choice of menu,,soup was too sweet ,I would have liked to see more students visible working in the kitchen,and more students on the " shop floor" it appeared that the lecturing staff were doing most of the work and the students were very much in the background!

as on previous visit, food on the whole extremely good, and good value for money. a few small glitches - cocktail menu but not wine list offered on arrival, music very obtrusive ( tho lowered on request ), listed pudding ingredient missing ( supplied after , on request ). however, perfectly happy to make return visits !

I have visited the Classroom a number of times over the last year, and this visit like others was good. There are a couple of points worth noting. My Duck Confit was perfect, my colleagues soup was returned as it was on the cold side. The service on this visit was not up to the standard of previous visits. We were served by a lot of managers not students - which I find odd. There appears to be a lot of people in charge but no-one really hosting. Over all although the service was ok it was not up to the standard of the food and felt a little confused.

Fish courses in February's menu - both starter and mains were really delicious. Good reports on the duck mains too. The rhubarb dessert was light and tasty - would have liked more liquid or a Chantilly cream on the side to moisten the sponge more.

Three lunchtime courses, with a choice of just three items per course, yet everyone was pleased with their choice! Terrific view, food spot-on and friendly service. Looking forwards to a return visit to try out their dinner menu!

Great meal of very good quality. Fantastic combinations of flavours. Could do with an additional vegetarian option. Attentive staff and a nice atmosphere. Loved the cocktails being made from scratch. Have recommended this restaurant to a lot of my friends.

Couldn’t fault the value for money or atmosphere. Staff were attentive and made my mum’s birthday special with extra touches. Food was amazing only limited by choice of pudding but that is personal taste.

Excellent food, but service was a little slow considering we were the only 4 diners when we arrived. Waiting staff (students I assume) were all nervous to varying degrees but did a good job and need to be more confident - customers dont bite! One waiter seemed to have very little grip of English and we struggled to communicate with him. But overall a good experience thank you.

Food was excellent. I had the Octopus to start and Venison for main and they were both cooked to perfection. Thank you for the fantastic hospitality.

Fantastic atmosphere on the top floor of the college building. The dining room is a good size and allows for decent space between tables to allow for some privacy. Suitable for romantic dinners or large groups. We went for a birthday party and it was perfect. Great views over Cardiff & great selection of music playing all evening. The food was presented at a high standard and tasted delicious. A limited menu but there was something to suit everyone in our group of 21. Also happy to cater specifically for a young child. The service was good and food came promptly and was warm. A little disappointed that no orders for drinks were taken at the table but this may have been that we were a large group. Also no one came to ask if we were happy with our food but these were just minor things. I think this is understandable as many of the staff are in training but it was evident that they were all incredibly polite and hard working.

Food: Excellent presentation but sometimes quality of cooking didn't match (over/under cooked in parts). Portions were almost unnecessarily large! Service: Waiting staff were considerate and polite. Catered for dietary requirements well. Price: Felt expensive given quality of food to taste wasn't as good as hoped.
