Boasting 2 AA Rosettes, Park House Cardiff is a restaurant and wine bar with a modern British menu. The contemporary creativity of the food contrasts with the grand Victorian property in which the restaurant is housed.

The Park House menu focuses on using local Welsh ingredients to produce creative, British-influenced dishes. Start with parsnip and coco bean salad with pickled chanterelles and hazelnuts, or the rich chicken velouté with brioche and cep butter. Main dishes include the sumptuous venison with juniper berries, sweet and sour parsnips, foie gras caramel and roast pear, or the grouse with curly kale, game crouton and parsnip purée. Fresh fish dishes are also on offer, like Cornish turbot with Wiltshire truffle risotto, wild mushroom and truffle broth, and Parisienne vegetables.

Park House restaurant also serves a lavish afternoon tea of speciality sandwiches, hand-made cakes and pastries, and freshly baked scones. Added glamour can be added by choosing one of the champagne or cocktail afternoon tea options. An extensive wine, whisky and cocktail list complements any meal at Park House.

Close to the iconic castle, Park House is an 8-minute walk from Cardiff Queen Street Train Station.

    We had the 7 course tasting menu. The food was disappointing. 2 of the 7 courses were good. The tortellini was over cooked and tough as a consequence. The scallops which were listed on the menu was substituted for lobster without any explanation. The chef made a special Apple dessert for me which was delicious and much appreciated. The wine was excellent. Overall, we did not feel it was good value for money. The food was very mediocre and disappointing.

    Beautiful restaurant. Our favorite dish was the canapes, We have had food there before and felt that it did not live up to other visits.
    Enjoyed all the guests getting into the masquerade experience with masks, it would have been nice if the staff had done the same.
    It was lovely to see nearly everyone attend wearing the appropriate dress code. One gent wore a jumper and body warmer. Dress Code ?
    Wonderful entertainment.

    Made to feel welcome by staff.
    Attentive service.
    Pleasant environment with table overlooking Cathays Park.
    We had a 9 course tasting menu and all courses were nice but the beef and goose courses were particularly appreciated. Overall was the impression of a diverse range of tastes and textures.
    One of the dessert dishes had a very chocolate item,sorry can't remember name, which might be too much for some tastes but I enjoyed it as it was subdued by the fantastic white chocolate ice cream.
    A potential down side for female diners is that the ladies is a 'bit of a hike' up a number of flight of stairs.
    As for wine, we had a white Reisling, exquisitely light and complemented the whole experience. For those with deep pockets for matching wines they would I am sure be of equal quality.
    As for parking, may prove difficult in the day.

    We had the taster menu; the food was equisite. The flavours, presentation and portion size were well balanced. We chose to having the wine pairing which we would recommend. The somellier was incredibly knowledgeable and each course was perfectly matched. The dessert wine was very good. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and the restaurant had a good ambiance. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    Had seven course taster menu - very good. Wine choice amazing and had a great bottle of Red (or 2) called Renegade - excellent

    Not impressed I'm afraid. Phone manner not great in booking, no atmosphere in the room, extortionate pricing. It was my daughters 21st birthday and tho the waiter did put the candles on that I brought with me, there was no merriment or sense of occasion. Very disappointing.
