A contemporary steak house in the centre of busy St Mary Street in Cardiff, The Meating Place offers a host of exciting treats from the charcoal grill. Signature marinated skewers are served with delicious accompaniments, while classic grill cuts are sourced from some of Cardiff's most celebrated producers.

Choose from a selection of hand-selected steaks, cooked to your preference, or tuck into a rack of ribs smothered in BBQ sauce and served with salad, chunky chips & coleslaw. Other dishes on the menu include sesame-seared tuna with pickled veg & red cabbage compote.

In the dining room, suspended light fittings, reclaimed furnishings and exposed beams offer a quirky, shabby-chic vibe. Afternoon tea is served daily, complete with delicate sandwiches and pastries, and a traditional roast is cooked up every Sunday.

The Meating Place in Cardiff is just a 4-minute walk from Cardiff Central Rail Station.

    We had heard excellent reviews about this lovely restaurant but had never managed to make a reservation. However as we were in Cardiff for a show decided now was the time, and we were not disappointed! From the minute we walked in we felt very welcome and Alex was the perfect host. We didn't have a lot of time and went straight to the mains. The steaks were about the best we have had, cooked to perfection! We were so impressed we immediately booked for a date with friends in a few weeks time.
    The menu was so inviting it was very hard to make a selection, but we will be trying all I'm sure!

    The Meating Place will be hard to beat.

    Visited for a Mother's Day treat to have a Sunday dinner with a twist and the meal was much enjoyed by all of the family. Staff were most helpful and the look of the steaks on another table more than whet my appetite for another visit!
