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.

    Nice buzz in this place. Steaks were good. Chicken Skewers were good. Veggie burger had no complaints from our vegan friend. Service is good, if a little 'robotic'. Decor is nice apart from the 'cow' wallpaper. Our table was a table of 8 which was upstairs, at the front. This table is right next to the kitchen door which slammed every time a member of staff went in or out - this was extremely annoying for me. I mentioned it to the waiter, who said it had no stopper on it. 'Sorry about that' was about all he could offer up I guess, but this really should be addressed, as it took the shine off the experience for me.

    The second time I have dined here and it never fails to impress! Absolutely beautiful food, we loved it so much that we have booked a table again for a special occasion in a few months time along with family! Can't wait to go back already
