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.

    Went for Sunday lunch had skewers with potato wedges(frozen) Yorkshire (frozen) veg and small dish of very watery gravy chicken skewers were ok but everything coated in herbs which left after taste most of day - not what I expected very disappointing, but we tried it but don't think we will be having second visit .

    This place is lovely. Manageable portions so actually finished my meal for once. Lovely atmosphere, kind waiting staff and the chef brought out our starters, he was lovely too.

    They were showing Buster Keaton films in the background which basically means id give this place 6 stars if i could.

    Great atmosphere and lovely friendly staff but we had quite a long wait for our meals to arrive. The quality and amount of food was excellent though and worth the wait!

    I booked a table for 8 people on line for the 27th december, however unfortunately i did not mention that 2 of our party were 80 and had mobility problems. The manager on duty was most unhelpful and while there were a number of empty tables downstairs he stated they were all reserved and insisted we sit upstairs, again there were mostly empty tables which again he said were reserved and sat us in the window on 2 tables of 4 which was quite odd as we were in a group. We left at 9 pm and the tables he insisted were reserved remained empty throughout. The food was delicious and we had a lovely evening but the seating was uncomfortable and draughty and affected our evening.
