Le Monde serves exceptional fresh seafood and if you are tired of meats, I recommend that you step into this restaurant. From prawns, lobsters and mussels to monkfish and trout, it has it all. The preparations are diverse too - from traditional grills to Thai curries. We found the monkfish in lemon butter outstanding! The prices are a bit steep and I found the lighting somewhat uninspiring. The restaurant also has this strange norm that unless the starters have been finished, they wouldn't bring the main course. Good we asked after having lost our patience somewhat as one of us was content with just a starter for herself as she wasn't really hungry. Cost for a couple approx £60.

The sea bass, as always, was absolutely perfect. Baked sea bass is a favourite of mine, and I’ve eaten it in many, many places, but nowhere has ever beaten Le Monde on quality. It was filleted at our table, after the thick layer of rock salt was removed, and between us we only found one small bone left in the fish. I’m not a huge fan of new potatoes, but Mr W is, and he waxed lyrical (pun intended) about how lovely and waxy they were – apparently the sign of a good new potato! Similarly, the French bread was beautifully fresh – crusty on the outside and soft and light in the middle. To accompany our meal we had a bottle (okay, we actually had two!) of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, nice and crisp and refreshing – a perfect complement to the delicate flavour of the sea bass.

I eat fish in many different countries but I have to say the Brill I had here was just that BRILL! Perfectly cooked ,fresh and simply presented. OK the décor is a bit sombre but the service was good and the food fabulous I will be back

What I like about this restaurant is that I know how clean the kitchen is! There is a JobShop at our university which sends students to employers for random one-off jobs. One day I got sent to Le Monde, to be a waitress for a big event they were hosting - something about the launch of a new wine? Someone did tell me but I didn't really listen that well... Anyway, so I know from that experience that the food is prepared well and safely. Not that I usually worry but it's an extra point. The food here is quite pricey but I do feel that it's really worth it. Sometimes you've just got to splash the cash a little to get some decent food. And it's worth it. I left feeling full of light, delicious, high-standard cuisine. The service was also great. Full marks all round, Le Monde!

I love fish! not the fish that swim in the sea, the slippery type that nibble at your feet eerrrggghhh they upset me. What i mean, is i love to eat fish...all fish, including my guilty pleasure fish cakes but i'll get to that in another review! And, if you like to eat fish head to the hidden, dark wonder that is Le Monde! Although incredibly pricey if your a fish fan (are you fed up about hearing about fish yet?) head here. The place is slightly dimly lit and a little scary if you go in when its light and come out and its dark. I'm not overly fussed on confusion. Service is good and if i'm honest i do get a little affected once in Le Monde, 'One is a fish fan, see?' It's got that top notch type of feeling to it; 'Yes darling!' Plenty of wine on offer and there are other options other than the tailed and finned type but go for the fish...please! Be warned; do not go if your a Finding Nemo fan!!! plop, plop.

Went here on a work lunch and loved it the moment i stepped through the door. Atmosphere is perfect, food is immense and service is second to none. There's quirky little nic naks all around the place, even a bell from the Titanic. Best place to eat in Cardiff by a mile.

Fantastic food. I love sea food and I was happy to come across Le monde when I first arrived in town. I had the famous salt baked sea bass and honestly, it couldn’t be better. I came back the day after to try the oysters and the scallops and once again i had a great experience. The quality of the ingredients stands out and the service is 5 starts. I was served by a waiter called Renan who was kind and ready to answer all my food lover questions about the menu. If you are in Cardiff I strongly recommend a visit.

Visited this place a few times now for a date night with my mrs, I must say we are always extremely impressed with the quality of food but most importantly how attentive & friendly the staff are. As soon as your through the door your treated with smiles & a happy atmosphere. The restaurant features lovely art deco styled theme with an open kitchen which is immaculate. You can go up and select the exact cut of meat or fish you’d like which I think is amazing The wine selection here is great and they have a lot to choose from but if your stuck then ask the staff as they are extremely knowledgeable about the wine pairing. If your visiting cardiff definitely make a reservation as you won’t be disappointed this place is a real gem

Great restaurant in the middle of Cardiff. Food was great and the menu was exciting. Really enjoyed the process of going up to the counter and choosing the food fresh from the counter, made it a more interesting dining experience. Although, we did sit there for about an hour waiting for a menu because we didn’t realise you had to go up and read the board for the menu’s instead of getting a paper menu in front of you - that’s a reflection on our own idiocy not the restaurant. Previously hired the top private room for a corporate function and it was a perfect venue.

A busy restaurant with attentive staffs to cater for you needs.Food looked so appetizing before I start…that my stomach began to rumble. The slow cook lamb is properly cooked & seasoned, leaving a pleasant aftertaste in your mouth. Simple is the best, better all the rest. Finger-licking

Le Monde, Cardiff Lively atmosphere for the discerning diner and those looking for a good experience. I am so glad I did the rare thing of booking a table even though Maitre De felt I didn't need to as the place was heaving when I got there. I was warmly welcomed by the Maitre De who told me there was a 20 minute wait and then he escorted me to the bar where I ordered a Merlot. I asked if there was anyone who could advise on a wine choice for the Venison I was hankering for. I was informed they did have a Sommelier (A sommelier, or wine steward, is a trained and knowledgeable wine professional, normally working in fine restaurants, who specializes in all aspects of wine service as well as wine and food pairing- Wikipedia) who produced a wine list and recommended a wonderful wine, that went well with the venison. I was taken to my table, my wine was served. I was escorted to the meats counter where I was shown the different meats and fish that were on display for cooking that day. I ordered venison, broccoli with oyster sauce, new potatoes in butter. The Venison was medium rare, succulent, served in peppercorn sauce, red cabbage, broccoli was served with oyster sauce, new potatoes. Wine paired was excellent Service was excellent (5/5) at least 4 people asked if I wanted dessert menu and coffee. For dessert I ordered creme brulee with coffee with cream. The creme brulee was served in a cute small copper based frying pan. My overall experience 5/5. I had a really good evening and enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the service. I really had a very evening. It doesn't get better than that.

Was really busy so took about 5mins before the host could check us in. You have to order at the fish/meat counter which I found slightly annoying during this pandemic. No social distancing and the restaurant was super busy. However the food was really good, especially the oysters. They do a two course special menu which is great value. Portion size was enormous.
