The restaurant is comfortable and spotlessly clean. The afternoon tea was delicious - especially the sandwiches - and all were well presented.

Very enjoyable. Starters were very good but portions a little small & would normally expect bread or toast with salmon pate. Mains also good but veg arrived around five minutes before main courses! Overall though we enjoyed another visit but need to keep an eye on standards.

All 12 of our party were incredibly impressed with the quality of the food and the high level of professionalism of service. There was a great atmosphere in the restaurant, everyone was friendly, polite and served with a smile. Members of the party have already asked when we can return!

My wife and I had a great time at The Clink; after searching for the best restaurant in Cardiff, you came up #1. We were very impressed with the quality and speed of the food and service , my only very small criticism was that the food needed a touch more seasoning but no big deal. We will definitely be returning.

A really disappointing experience in this so-called the best restaurant in Cardiff. The food is much lower than expected. I don't understand how did they get the "travelers' recommendation restaurant" on Tripadvisor. It's humiliating for other restaurants if call it as the best in Cardiff. Booked a reservation for 6 people at first and changed to 4 people later. Called the restaurant to explain the situation and the woman who answered the phone told me that the difference for 2 persons was refundable, and told me "Don't worry". After I finished the meal, and I asked the manager when could I have the refund of 2 persons(which is 39.9pounds per person). She told me the difference was totally not refundable. I told her that I was very sure the woman in the phone said it was refundable. She said that she was the only one answered and that's not possible for her to say that. Seriously??? If I was told the difference not refundable, why should I do so stupid thing that only took 4 people to the restaurant and wasted 80 pounds!!!??? And she told me I could only use the reservation for one time, which meant I could not make another reservation for 2 to make up my loss. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! I gave 2 stars for service just because other services were fine. A very bad restaurant except for charity.

Service was a little hit and miss and there were only 3 tables in for most of the meal. Asked and charged for sparkling water but got half a glass each and then a very non fizzy bottle. Bill showed a glass of rose by mistake and waitress wanted to charge full amount, not removing the deposit. Took away main dinner plates but not veggie dishes and then realised just before they put dessert plates down. Food was very good, but still room to improve
