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.

    Not sure what's All the fuss is about, very average

    The restaurant decor definitely has the wow factor, unfortunately the food and service does not.
    Underseasoned, small portions with style conentrated on over flavour.
    The service was haphazard. There were 3 other tables eating while we were there and the staff left our empty plates on the table for so long I had to ask for them to be removed.
    The cocktails were good, I had an elderflower and lemon fizz drink yet had to ask for more elderflower syrup as it was overwhelming with lemon.
    Then coming to payment, the young waiter brought our bill but subsequently seemed to forget to take our card payment and so once again I had to ask.
    Sorry but i don't usually complain about a restaurant but I will not be returning.

    Despite our party of 7 being somewhat late, Nick, the Manager & his staff, were completely unflappable and made us extremely welcome. The kitchen managed to stay open long enough for us to feed our fat faces & we proceeded to drink ourselves into happy oblivion - a fabulous night had by all. Many thanks.

    Lovely setting in the restaurant and fantastic service

    First time of visiting and we were most impressed with our welcome and the overall service was first class. Whilst the menu is not that big I believe that there was enough to please everyone. This often means the quality of the food is better. Our meals were near perfect and we were all very satisfied with the dishes provided.The staff were excellent and the wine quality was first class. Thankyou and we will be back sometime in the near future.
