20 Park Place, CARDIFF, CF10 3DQ
Chef Jonathan Edwards presides over one of the most enjoyable places to eat in Cardiff. Housed in an example of the Welsh capital's fine pieces of Gothic architectural extravagance and overlooking the gardens of the National Museum of Wales, the restaurant is done out in hues of pink and peach to jolly up the background of oak panelling. The kitchen turns out an ambitious menu that delivers well-defined flavours from premium ingredients, and doesn't shy away from some pretty inventive pairings, as seen in a starter of lobster and crab ravioli with spiced chilli ketchup and lemongrass-scented tea. Next up, Cornish turbot is sent out in the bracing company of Hafod cheddar leeks, buttered spinach, morel mushroom cream and smoked bacon gnocchi, while caramelised Kelmscott pork might appear with brown shrimp, Bramley apples and summer cabbage. A chocolate platter involving a rich pavé and 'pulled' chocolate with a peppermint macaroon and spearmint sorbet rounds off a polished act. The wine list is put together with real authority and is a previous winner of the AA Wine Award for Wales.
