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.

    Had a Ribeye steak and some wine. Steak cooked perfectly for my taste and wine complimented the meal very well. Restaurant a bit crowded (but as expected on international rugby day)

    My partner and I both had the fillet steak. Absolutely amazing! We're big meat eaters, especially steak and based on food, it's definitely in our top three!
    Service was also amazing, they couldn't do enough for you.

    And then the bill came...
    I will always pay for good food and good service which is what we received however... a 10% 'optional' service charge is automatically added to your bill. It does state 'optional' but how rude and awful would you look if you requested they removed this when it was a good experience? Imagine the waiters face :(
    We paid it, begrudely. I always tip. This to me just came across as cheeky and sort of deflated our experience.
    Although the food and service was good, based on this, we won't be returning <\3
