The staff were brilliant and professional. we had 2 pork and 2 tortellini. the pork dishes were amazing. The tortellini was not with only 6 parcels and a very strong very large serving of radicini. Another note, some other diners got a beef burger and grilled sandwiches which were not on the menu so my guests were a little confused as to why they got special orders. Overall a very pleasant experience although I won't order the tortellini.

Thank you for making my Mum's birthday treat of afternoon tea so special! Service was second to none and food was delicious with plenty of choice. Nothing was too much trouble. Our waiters, Josh and Glenn, were extremely attentive and efficient and the gentlemen in the kitchen and reception worked exceptionally hard. So a big thank you to Michael, Peter, Josh (no.2) and Joe. I can't write this review without making an extra special mention to Francesca. She had the restaurant running like clockwork, has a great working relationship with the staff, yet took the time to talk to us on a really down to earth level. We felt relaxed, welcome and almost like part of the family by the time we left haha!! This restaurant doesn't just provide great food and service but ultimately an incredible opportunity for the staff to gain qualifications ready for their release. Well done all, will definitely be booking again.

Brilliant food with an amazing atmosphere. Service attentive and friendly. Brilliant way of re-training and integrating prisoners into "normal" life. Our servers were lovely, pleasant and chatty. Wonderful lunch, even though no alcohol was involved. That said, we will definitely be back. The afternoon tea looked devine too!

We were lucky enough to receive vouchers for The Clink as a wedding present and finally got chance to use them this weekend. We opted for the Sunday Lunch and had a great time. Everything was excellent from start to finish. We both really enjoyed our meals, they were cooked very well, great presentation and they tasted delicious. Service was brilliant too, polite and helpful staff. We would definitely visit again and have already recommended it to friends and family.

Love every minute! A big thank you to everyone front of house and behind the scene for making the project a great success. Welcoming and good quality of food.

Lovely calming atmosphere at the clink Cardiff. Welcomed by friendly & well mannered staff. Our waiter Josh was a lovely young man, very polite & friendly. The food was delicious & 10/10 for presentation. Finished with a surprise chocolate happy birthday platter for the birthday boy. Highly recommended & we’ll be visiting again in the future. Well done everyone at the clink Cardiff.

We have eaten there before and the food was exceptional. On this occasion we were disappointed and would say the food was mediocre at best. The soup was luke warm and tasteless, The bread dry and stodgy. The roast beef was overcooked, dry and tough. Everything lacked seasoning :(

Another first-class meal at the Clink. The standard of cuisine was exceptional as was the presentation and service. Kieron, who looked after us, was pleasant, personable and very professional. He is a great credit to the Clink project.
