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.

    Food was great; staff friendly. They opened mid afternoon to cater for those graduating. Please note, toilets are up 2 flights of stairs which was not ideal for my elderly mother in law.
