Great charity organisation working towards the rehabilitation of prisoners. The food was of a very high standard and the veg cooked to perfection. The dinning experience was great with good service. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Everything from start to finish was outstanding. Immaculate service, quality atmosphere and even better food. Probably the nicest tasting salmon I have ever had! Keep up the good work, 10/10 would recommend to anyone with a passion for food.

The Clink has great reputation, and it exceeded my high expectations. The food is fine dining without being pretentious. I was a bit suspect on portion sizes in the first two courses, but it left room for the very generous main. I didn't miss alcoholic drinks as the mocktails were amazing. The waiting staff were attentive without being overbearing, and they were very friendly. Can't wait to return!

Good service and enjoyed food although my choices involved quite a bit of fried food which I hadn't quite expected. Nice atmosphere and attention to detail and servie. Would come again.

We had heard only recently about The Clink Restaurant, and were in Cardiff for our 30th wedding anniversary. We thought it would be great to have lunch there so we booked. We couldn’t have chosen better if we tried. The service was very good, the staff were extremely good and the food was superb. We live in Brighton so Cardiff may be a little far for our next visit, but there are two more Clink’s closer to us and we shall certainly be booking them soon. A great experience and example of doing something constructive with people who deserve a chance to change their lives for the better after a rough period in their life. Well done guys a real inspirational experience, that deserves to be shouted about. Thank you for making our anniversary an extra special day.

I'd originally heard about The Clink on The Food programme Radio 4 and was very impressed with what I'd learnt about the charity, so was keen to experience dining there. The serving staff were charming and very efficient, the food was presented well and with interesting flavour combinations. We experienced a rather long wait between our mains and dessert but it was well worth it when they arrived, they were delicious!
