How are you doing? Feeling a little newynog? For those of you who aren’t fluent in cymraeg, “newynog” means “hungry” in Welsh. If you're reading this right now and feeling a little newynog, we’ve got some great news for you. Especially if you live in (or near) the city of Cardiff. That's right: this is a list we’ve compiled after doing heaps of research (aka eating and drinking) at the best places to eat in Cardiff.
If you’re wondering where to eat in Cardiff for a special occasion like an anniversary or birthday or even just a rogue Wednesday night, these are some of the best spots to hit up. They're the cream of the crop. The pick of the litter. We’ve already done some round-ups of what the dining scenes look and taste like in cities such as Cambridge, Chester, York, Leeds, Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh, and Manchester, to name a few. But we figured it was time we give the Welsh capital its day in the spotlight. Because the food in Cardiff is as diverse and likeable as the city itself. In fact, the only difficulty you’ll have when you’re having a meal there is in deciding where exactly to go.
We’ve numbered this rundown of the best restaurants in Cardiff but it’s worth noting there’s no real order of preference. We’re not saying the restaurant listed at number one is the best and all the others have to get in line behind it; every one of these restaurants is applicable for whatever different mood or vibe you’re feeling. You’ll eat well at all of these locations.
