With its top floor location in Cardiff and Vale College’s spanking new City Centre campus and sweeping views of the city, The Classroom isn’t your typical catering college restaurant. The swish website, ambitious prices, almost regular opening hours (Mon - Fri lunch & dinner) and pedigree of the team overseeing the young trainees all make The Classroom feel, well, like a restaurant.
A truly fantastic venue showcasing excellence in fine dining in all aspects. The food was cooked to perfection with astonishing precision, each flavour and texture perfectly balanced with great skill. Service was friendly, attentive, and helpful, which added to the excellent evening spent here. With fantastic drinks on offer, and a broad panoramic view from the windows this is a.must visit venu! With the reductions in price due to the staff being in the process of being trained as part of their qualifications, this is fine dining at a more affordable level than most! Would strongly recommend.
Located in the Cardiff and vale college on the 5th floor.
Modern interior, airy.
Nice views and sunset for dinner.
Service by Eastern European waitress both robotic and curt.
Food selection limited.
Portion massive: all courses.
Tuna tartar was good but on the tasteless side-
The lamb was excellent-
Came pink and would like it to be. Good accompaniment.
Stick toffee massive portions and too much to finish- good dish.
Variable cocktails- negroni. The apple martini was undrinkable.
Good value for money for the size of the portions.
Good option for dinner.
Service could be a bit more
Friendly, less judgmental and less
Really delicious food. We had the traditional Christmas Roast which was extremely good. Service is good with friendly professional staff. I'd definitely go back next time in Cardiff and definitely recommend a visit.
Must visit in Cardiff. Food was exceptional, and portions were very generous. Support local students and enjoy an incredible meal.
Me & my husband has dinner at The classroom. Our 1st time - dine in this restaurant. We were super happy to find out this place/restaurant called The Classroom where is a teaching restaurant of cooking school to potential, enthusiastic students, taught & guided by professional, well-known Michelin star chef. Me & my husband was very impressed by their professionism service, friendly, welcoming smiles. Thanks so much for your services. ⭐️❤️. We were definitely be back again. Highly recommended to anyone who visit Cardiff⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Absolutely beautiful food, superbly presented with lovely attentive staff. Great views across the capital. Well worth a meal there
We had lunch last weekend and all were very impressed with the restaurant.
The “class room” is in the college but once at the top floor and through the door you could be in any upmarket city establishment.
We were seated promptly at our table and within minutes our drinks order had been taken. We then sat back looked at the Lunch menu and enjoyed a tasty glass of wine.
I ordered the Duck leg rillette followed by Pan fried sea bream. Both were presented well and very good to eat.
After the main course I sampled the Plum frangipane tart, almond ice cream, almond tuille. This followed the standard of the other courses and was divine.
Nothing to fault this restaurant, 100% amazing food, service and quality.
What a fantastic restaurant. Recently visited on a match day and was blown away by the quality of food and standard of service. Two of us had an excellent 3 course meal and a good bottle of wine for £76. Fine dining and a great atmosphere on a budget.
European fine dining cooked by students of Cardiff and Vale college. Outstanding service and presentation. Food was exceptionally tasty.
Desert was very rich and the strawberry ice cream was a bit of odd, strawberry just didn't really go. Drinks are reasonably priced as is the food for the quality.
Me and a few friends had a lovely evening at The Classroom which is a training restaurant for burgeoning chefs and catering staff studying at the Cardiff and Vale College. Firstly the location and atmosphere is lovely - perched 5 floors up, it has a light and airy feel with great views of the city if you bag a window table. I had great pre-meal communication from the manager, Thomas, which meant all our needs were catered for on the day. Oh, and the food was great too! Note the price we paid was for a special set menu with wines - so more extensive and expensive than a normal service. Support the students!
