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.

    The food and service was first class. The lamb was amazing as was the sea bass. Only criticism was that the music got louder and was not background, although the music itself was no problem just the volume.

    Second visit in two months and a much better experience this visit. First visit was very busy and I think the staff lacked the prefessionalism and friendlyness because of this. They also had been informed last time it was my birthday before hand and on the night but failed to bring a candle out in my dessert until reminded a third time by my parents

    Last night however the atmosphere wasn't much better and even though it was full and busy it wasn't as a overwhelming feel from the staff. We were grateful for the candle you surprised my friend with for her birthday. Staff are knowledgeable about the menu and offer great advice

    One thing we mentioned was my partner emailed two months ago to enter the dessert naming competition and had asked for more info as how can he came something he doesn't know the ingredients to? He has had no response! Just a quick thing to email back those who email as courtesy I would recommend :-)

    As I work in Penarth I always feel it's nice to promote local businesses but make sure you are always at 100% of your game and not too busy with bookings :-)

    Awesome. First visit to this fantastic place. They went above and beyond with their customer service, the cocktails and food were beautiful and the ambience was great!

    Lovely food, lovely staff! I couldn't believe how fast the food came out, we had our starters and mains within 45 mins of arrival! For once I actually had to tell the waiter to slow down because they were so efficient haha. Door host was very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be returning, provided my bank account allows me to.
