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.

    A delightful evening. My only suggestions/comments would be that rather a lot of dishes contain beetroot and although the music was excellent, is was a little loud. I would definitely recommend this venue and will be returning.
