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 tapas starters were amazing and the sausage was the pic of the bunch. The lamb main was also exceptional and plentiful. There wasn’t a chocolate dessert option which was a shame but the almond cake was decent enough.

Upon entering the restaurant the feeling i had was that it was small and did not look very good. Was i wrong, after we sat down at the table we could take in the atmosphere. We did not feel cramped at all. The staff were very friendly and knew everything about the menu and food available. The food arrived and we were not disappointed; it was presented well and was of exceptional quality. Okay, it was a bit pricey, but for the food that was served you had to expect to pay a proper price for it, we thoroughly enjoyed the quality food and the whole experience of dining at this restaurant.
