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 atmosphere was really cosy and homely. Lovely staff, great clientele, positive vibes.

    However, the restaurant is overrated in our opinion. While we haven't tried their signature dish, the Lamb Mountain, the dishes we had (endive salad with ham, rabbit and octopus) weren't that exciting. They were of good quality but not anything that special to justify the price charged or the ratings received.

    Good food in appropriate quantities and well presented.

    Excellent, as always. Although the lamb is one of our favourites, we had the roast duck today, and weren’t disappointed. I also really appreciate the kitchen’s willingness to change recipes to appeal to fussy children. My daughter is a particular fan of the squid ink rice. Their tapas menu is always worthwhile.

    A lovely intimate restaurant with a very authentic feel. We had hake which was delicious and would recommend. Will return soon!
