My wife and I are just moving to the area and we were looking for somewhere to have a date night amongst the dozens of bars and restaurants in Cardiff city. Boy did we find somewhere. The Potted Pig is amazing. It's a tiny door with a lift or a set of stairs to go down into a low lit restaurant. As soon as you walk down you are greeted by friendly staff. They were more than happy to accommodate my peanut allergy and brought me a menu once they had seated us which had things that weren't safe for me marked off. The ambient light is just perfect for a romantic quiet meal. They immediately offer a drinks menu and water (tap or bottled) while you look at the menu. The food was just delicious. The starters were well done and neither of us had room for a dessert. We had mocktails and the noise was at the perfect level so we could talk without raising our voices. The waiter was lovely too, we got chatting as he'd asked when seating us whether we'd been before and we mentioned that we're new to the area. He suggested a few bars to go and visit as we wanted to sample the night life a bit more. It's definitely a place worth vising. We will be making this a regular visit as it's just such a lovely place.

The Potted Pig is a great spot for a date night or an occasion and my favorite restaurant in Cardiff! Everything we ordered was delicious! I loved the potted pig and the ribs, which just fell off the bone!

The potted pig Known for one of the best restaurants in the area and very tough to get into. I was able to slide in as a walk in and though the greater and service has been attentive thus far the area that I was placed in was secluded from the main restaurant with the décor of an old cellar. I ordered the Chicharrón’s, duck pate, ribeye, sticky toffee pudding and the Cabernet Sauvignon. The chicharron’s were very dry but also super crunchy, the duck leg pate was cool and didn’t spread well but was well flavored to the salty side however was cut by the mustard greens and Gergen pickles. The ribeye was ordered medium rare but came medium. The flavor was well seasoned on the salty side that was again cut by the side salad of Cabbage, and Lakota topped with garlic butter. The dessert was topped with a sticky toffee bread pudding was the star. Light, fluffy, and served pipping hot while drenched in a light toffee syrup and a side scoop of vanilla ice cream. The food was amazing, the service was very attentive, the only negative is the isolation but I’m guessing that with a reservation you could be in the main rooms with everyone else. In short this was an excellent birthday meal and has me excited to see what the next birthday brings.

Ate in for dinner. Delicious crab ravioli. My husband’s favourite was the Welsh rarebit. Expensive but you can anticipate that from the menu. Staff were helpful without being overly attentive. Atmosphere was interesting, like being in a secret cave!

After a day of visiting castles and even Tintern Abbey, it was great to get into The Potted Pig and have a great dinner. The ribs were falling of the bone, but I have to say they had more of a spicy kick than advertised. The lamb chop was tender and the pork belly was savory and crispy in parts. We had a bottle of Absolue Négrette that paired well with all our meals. It made for a lovely end to a very busy day.

Sunday roast. Good but there's a discretionary tip added to the bill which most places do these days and they shouldn't. Should be up to the customer to decide how much they think they would like to tip the staff and not the other way around. And I know we can ask the remove it from the bill, but just makes the customer feel uncomfortable.

Nice menu. The place is OK. Service is a bit slow between dishes and drinks, like 20-25 minutes and restaurant was almost empty. Sirloin was really good (not cheap either) but I would put the sauce aside, not cover it for such expensive cut. Greens are £5 but nothing special. Fishcake was good. Leak croquete was also good. They seem to use mint sauce a bit too much, even for salad dressing. Service "optional" but it's already included in the bill. Some places now seem to ask you before including it but it should be something you to leave as cash or machine to ask for gratuity.

Absolutely delicious and amazing food. I felt like such a tasty meal not in the UK, but somewhere in France haha soooo tender meat and unbelievable combination of ingredients with amazing presentation. The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful and provided the highest level of service. The interior was cozy but some parts were a bit strange for me, but the food and service made it the most!!! Definitely will come back and if I could, I’d give 10 stars!!!
