La Cuina in Cardiff brings Catalan cuisine to the Welsh capital. Blending the finest in Spanish and local ingredients, the experimental dishes add modern flair to traditional flavours.

Often pairing sweet with savoury, the La Cuina Cardiff menu is rich in flavour. Try chicken with prunes and chocolate, fillet of Welsh beef with red wine sauce and caramelised shallots, or papillote of locally sourced fish served with fresh vegetables. The tapas menu is teeming with authentic Spanish produce, including Catalan white sausage from the Pyrenees, pan-fried chorizo with rocket and goats’ cheese, and slow-cooked rabbit in vinaigrette.

Desserts at La Cuina are no less extravagant, with a dish of homemade dark chocolate served with thin toast, sea salt and olive oil a striking option. Orange and almond cake with orange blossom and lemon foam is equally tempting. La Cuina also runs regular events from its light, modern rooms, including Catalan, Spanish and French language lessons.

Close to all of Cardiff’s main sports venues, La Cuina Kings Road is a 10-minute walk from Ninian Park Train Station.

    The staff are always very welcoming oh e never had a less than perfect dish when I've eaten here it's always hard to choose
    Last night I had scallops with avocado purée to start and the rabbit as main
    Both perfect and round off with

    Very good food. A lot of care has been put on the cooking. Booking has been difficult. I have been trying to book for a long time, and my experience booking online has not been very successful.

    The waiting time between dishes was over 25 min; within the small menu, about 6 dishes, half had blue cheese, so not many options or variety on flavors. Nice staff and quality products though.
    Wine extremely overpriced.

    Delicious food - we had the cured sardines on filo pastry, blackpudding and mushroom croquettes - and they were all so flavoursome & beautifully presented. Desserts fantastic too - orange & almond cake was particularly lovely. Totally lived up to expectations (having seen it mentioned in the Sunday Times). Friendly waiter too.

    Been many times ... It's a fantastic, memorable restaurant. This time though the food lacked that little bit of "zing"!

    Absolutely lovely evening. The food was beautifully cooked and presented, with portions of just the right size so that 3 courses left us feeling completely satisfied but not as if we'd over indulged. The service was impeccable.
