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.

    It was the 2nd visit in a week for me and I have to say it was the best dining experience I have had in the Cardiff area for a very very long time. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly. I cannot wait to visit again.

    Great vibe, décor was to our taste and the staff were very good. The restaurant operates a two sitting time table............ this did not appear to be working last night as our table was booked for 8.30pm but we did not sit down until after 9.30pm !!!!. The menu was interesting and fun and the prices were on a par with most decent restaurants in and around the area. Our table of four chose .....2 x sirloin steaks 1 x rib-eye and 1 lamb shank, the 2 sirloins were disappointing and we have eaten better. The other meals were very good.

    We dined early so Etc was relatively quiet, but soon the atmosphere grew in this very nice setting. The staff were attentive and presented the food well, when asked questions about the menu they were very knowledgable and enthusiastic. The food itself was very good and it's been a long time since we enjoyed a meal so much, it was flavoursome and fun. We had starters, Quack & Camel burgers, main, steak with balti sauce & salmon, desert, Cariad & Boy who never grew up.
    We will return again to sample more of the menu.
    Thank You Etc.

    The restaurant was beautifully decorated. Tables however were very small for 4 with an extremely large table centre that made it worse . Starters and deserts were wonderful but main courses unimpressive especially for price. The salmon especially was bland and unimpressive. I know other people who have gone and found the same. For an overall experience it was good and service was fab. I would recommend it to friends with reservations.

    Good service and ambience. Menu different but limited. Food quality generally very good, but sauce with salmon was rather insipid and there was a problem with my crème brule dessert quality- lumpy, my wife's was ok. I complained and the dessert cost of both were taken off the final bill
