It was my second visit (and I am planning two further visits soon). I have really enjoyed the skewers - including the 'Sunday roast' option. Such fun.
The staff are fantastic - very friendly and attentive.

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.

    Myself and my girlfriend had an 8pm reservation on a Friday night and overall we were reasonably happy. Nice atmosphere, staff were friendly enough and greeted us immediately on entry. We both had medium-rare rib eye steaks for £22. The steak was quite fatty but not too bad. Home made chips were outstanding so probably 7.5/10, we had a couple of cocktails that again weren’t too bad but a little sharp. Just need a bit more sugar water to even the taste. Came to £70 something pounds and the ‘opptional service charge’ was added without consultation with us. As I’m British obviously I smiled and paid but did feel it was a bit strange. I would have tipped the 10% anyway but feel they should probably ask the customer rather than assuming. If they sorted that bit out I would recommend the service and food. We booked this place after Madiera was fully booked for the 8pm slot, hopefully next time there will be space there.
