We went here for a birthday dinner on Saturday evening. We were greeted at the door by the Maitre de, who asked us if he could take our coats and then told us that one of our colleagues had arrived and showed us where we would be sat. The service was second to none, our waitresses Jessica and Carla were most attentive, yet not overly so, where they distracted us from our food. The food was a sumptuous feast of delight, cooked to perfection and without a doubt some of the best we have had the pleasure of eating. There was excellent choice of wines and a wide range of spirits and cocktails available. It was our visit to The Classroom, but it certainly won't be our last!!

Such lovely training staff and we could see they were really trying to get their service correct. Fish starter gorgeous. Main fish same although slight crispness to skin without spoiling that perfect cooking would be really great. Dessert not quite the same standard. Huge pieces of rhubarb that should have been stewed in to. Create s more refined consistency although tartness was lovely. Chocolate dessert was not defrosted and the shape rather ungainly....a sharp wedge would be more stylish. Brûlée delicious. The view and ambiance in the dining area is contemporary relaxing and the unusual views are superb.

I highly recommend trying out The Classroom. They offer a different dining experience, with a fresh new idea on educating hospitality / culinary students while providing a wonderful service / meal. Not to mention the view!

We all enjoyed our evening very much Although being asked what our orders were before we were seated at our table was not ideal We were asked for our orders at the bar The barman was amazing and gave us guidance on the menu Drinks were pricey

Bad stomach the day after. Not too sure what this was down to as none of us in our party had a meat dish. Very strange!

Very sympathetic restaurant. Staff is in training, but already operating on quite a good level. Food is at an excellent level, creative kitchen. When service staff develops the same eye for details as the kitchen brigade already has than this place has the potential to become the best restaurant in Cardiff. Keep up the good work, we will definitely return to this place when we visit Cardiff.

Everything excellent and especially the food but one small thing: you very kindly turned the music down for us. One of the joys of this restaurant has been that it is usually very quiet and calming and spacious enough that your conversations cannot be overheard by other tables and we can hear each other perfectly well. There is something very classy about a restaurant that does not have a constant stream of background pop music. If you do have to play it, can it please be quiet.

Atmosphere would probably have been a 5 too but we were the first diners at the Monday lunch session. No wine consumed but the wine list looked very interesting. The Nohito (alcohol free Mahout) was delicious. Cured sea bass starter, delicious and beautifully presented glazed pork chop and inventive rhubarb Eton Mess all perfect. And the service from Thomas was friendly and immaculate.

Highly recommend the 'Wine Tasting' evenings - such a great opportunity to try delicious culinary delights together with selected wines that perhaps, would not be explored otherwise. A fabulous evening, very much looking forward to the next event.

All the food was delicious my only criticism would be that the starter, ravioli and the lamb were lacking enough sauce to accompany the rest of the dish. The meal as whole was fabulous and I would certainly go again when back in Cardiff.

As usual, lunch was cooked and presented well. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. I am always happy to invite friends and colleagues to dine with me at The Classroom.
