    Our visit was a Christmas present from my boyfriend and I wasn't disappointed at all - we had Sunday dinner. The setting was great, the food was extremely well cooked and excellent value for money considering the size of the portions. In my opinion, this place is way better than some of the other highly rated restaurants in Cardiff, and has the added bonus of being a social enterprise. Whats not to love?!

    Really good food and we were served by Ian who was attentive and efficient. I had the duck starter followed by tortellini with radiccio, then a delicious chocolate mille feuille. My husband started with creamed spinach soup, then venison pie and orange and ginger sponge pudding. Had wanted to visit for ages and was not disappointed! Hoping the current circumstances do not have a long lasting effect.

    I have wanted to visit The Clink for some time, but booking isn’t easy when they are usually so full - Always a good sign ! The visit today for Sunday lunch didn’t disappoint one bit. We all had 3 courses and the Mocktail of the day. The soup and the crab starter was excellent, the chicken, fish and belly pork with a variety of vegetables was amazing and the cheeseboard was enough for 2. The portion sizes were generous and the vibe and service was perfect. Can see why this place has a great Trip Advisor following and will 100% be back

    This was our second visit to The Clink and from the moment we arrived Glen looked after us. The food was exceptional. Good quality, good portion size and fine dining at its best. The idea of the restaurant is to help learn skills in the hospitality sector and it never fails to deliver. The staff should be proud of what they have achieved.

    Excellent service and a beautiful atmosphere. I had the crab beignets to start which we’re very well seasoned; the shellfish bisque was full of flavour. My partner had the tea cured duck, which again was perfectly seasoned - however I think the dish would have benefited fro it being hot rather than cold. The charred plus were inspired. The venison pie was peppery and savoury, a real hearty meal. I think the dish could have easily been half the size and I would have been more than satisfied. A very generous portion. My partners belly pork was the stand out, moist and succulent. Brilliant. The milles fuielles was slightly disappointing, the pastry was lacking that real buttery snap. A great experience and would definitely come back again.

    Very enjoyable meal in pleasant small restaurant. The meal was prepared by serving prisoners under supervision. Could clearly see into the spotless kitchen. Great attention to detail. Menu quite limited but enough to suit all palates (check menu on line before you visit). It does change and the menu shown is Winter 2020. What we had was well cooked, tasted good and presentation was faultless. Vegans and other diets catered for. No alcohol obviously but fresh fruit cocktails and other soft drinks available. Front of house staff were very attentive without being intrusive. Thank you.

    What an incredible restaurant! My friend and I came to wales on a spontaneous trip and we managed to get into The Clink Restaurant and I am so glad we did! We were waited by Nathan and he was so attentive all night to us, he also gave me the best recommendations and I went for something I would never think to try on my own! For starter I had artichoke croquette balls and it was delicious! Main obviously going for the pork belly and let me tell you that cracking was out of this world I literally wanted to try to sneak into the kitchen and run away with a bucket full! Like the chef smashed it!! Like I can actually still taste it! Incredible! I will more than likely be dreaming about it for a long time to come! And for desert I had the hazelnut chocolate and white chocolate on the side and what a way to end such an incredible meal! Throughout the 3 courses we got talking to Nathan who was really friendly with a welcoming smile all night long. Upon unfortunately leaving without my bucket full of crackling, we went outside and realised it was too cold and we wanted to book an Uber to which we went back inside and we got chatting to Francesca who was at the bar all night serving us our drinks and she welcomed us back inside and was very friendly whist we waited for our taxi. I would 1000% recommend going to The Clink for dinner we had the best time with great food!

    Husband & I just had lunch here, the food was honestly some of the best I've ever had. Beautifully prepared, professionally served, well priced, it rivals any fine dining around. The staff (cheers Ian!) were friendly, attentive and professional, and it's helping prisoners gain experience and qualifications. Loved it.

    We visited here for our anniversary meal and had the Amuse Bouche 3 course meal. The service was second to none, some of the best I have ever experienced. The presentation of the food and the combination of ingredients was beautiful. However I was slightly disappointed with the taste of the food, it was somewhat bland and tasteless which I was disappointed about seeing as everything else was so amazing. I loved the concept and our waiter, Josh, was great. I had the pasta which came on a warm radicchio which tasted so so bitter in was inedible... it was such a shame. However as everything else was so good I would go back again and try something else. Overall it was a great experience.

    The best full English we’ve ever had, they were all cooked to perfection with absolutely no grease on the plate, the poached eggs were fantastic. I’m coeliac and was very well catered for with gluten free toast that I didn’t need to ask for and the manager gave me full confidence in the kitchen minimising the risk of cross contamination. Service was perfect, the manager and waiters all super friendly and attentive. I’m so glad we came and wish we had time to revisit in the evening as the menu looked delicious. The idea behind this restaurant is so refreshing, we’ll definitely try the one nearer to home now I know about it.

    We went for Breakfast in January and we were very impressed. The food is fantastic and the service from our waiter Glenn was equally good. All of the staff were lovely and happy to suggest things to do and see in Cardiff. Highly recommend!

    This was our chosen place for dinner on our overnight stay in Cardiff - just as well that we booked in advance as it was very busy! Both food & service were very good albeit not perfect, but something out of the ordinary in many senses, aided by no alcohol being served. It’s great to see (& contribute to) people being guided towards hopefully a better life through a new start along with a useful qualification.
