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.

    Really cosy and romantic atmosphere - also fantastic playlist! We had lamb and beef skewers which were incredible, and the chips are the best I’ve ever eaten.

    Lovely character restaurant with lovely staff and delicious food. We spent a lovely evening meeting up with American relatives whom we hadn't seen for 35 years. We stayed at out table long after finishing our meal and we weren't pressured to leave at all. The hanging skewers were enjoyed by all, Chicken, Lamb and Beef. Will definitely return. Good food at a reasonable price.

    The restraunt itself is very well presented. Love the wooden, lodge type kind of theme. Table was set up nicely with a long stemmed candle which was lovely. The food itself was amazing, me and my partner both had garlic bread and then the 10oz sirloin steak with chips and salad for the main. Highly recommend going, will definitely be returning in the near future. (Also recommend going to Handsome Jacks Bar next door, 25% off when you show your bill in there)
