Pumpkin soup (the soups and the bread sticks) mash that came with lamb.
The food was lovely but for a taster menu we felt the main meals were large.

A conceptual fusion restaurant and cocktail bar, ETC... lies in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan's attractive seaside town, Penarth.

The ETC… menu is packed with local and seasonal produce, which goes into an array of innovative dishes. Chef Stephen Gomes is a passionate advocate of molecular gastronomy, pushing the boundaries of traditional cooking to craft dishes with a unique identity. Signature starters include a prawn chocolate cocktail with lemon foam and cinnamon essence, followed by the likes of rib-eye steak with twice-fried chips or Moroccan vegetables, and spinach-infused spaghetti in a chicken and mushroom carbonara sauce.

In the chic bar area, a selection of smaller plates and sharers are on offer, as are stylish signature cocktails. A quirky twist on Sunday lunch is also a popular choice.

An exciting drinking and dining spot in Penarth, ETC… sits next to Penarth Rail Station, a short walk from the beach.

    Really enjoyed the meal pity the Gorgonzola sauce was so late! There was an older male member of staff who was wearing jeans which detracted from the dress of the restaurant and the efforts of other staff.

    Lovely restaurant. Staff were excellent and professional. Food was delicious. My parents were a little disappointed as it was for my birthday. They had rung ahead and mentioned this and also pointed out when we arrived it was my birthday to the waiter. When dessert came they had forgotten and not done anything. My dad mentioned it and they came out with an extra scoop of ice cream with a sparkler. I didn't know about this until after we left as my mum was disappointed that the meal and venue was lovely but that they had forgotten this even after being told about it twice! Apart from this it was lovely and I am hoping when I come back in may for my friends birthday the same is not forgotten
