Asador 44, Wales’ first Spanish ‘Asador’ restaurant, officially opens its doors to the public at the end of this week, but diners keen to be one of the first to try it out can already view the full menu and book a table at www.asador44.co.uk. View Post

This weekend I popped in to the iconic, mid-century Lancaster London Hotel to try out their ‘Island Grill’ restaurant. The restaurant boasts a central London location – just 5 minutes walk from Paddington Station – and offers a modern, seasonal European menu. It’s also recently been awarded the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s top Three Star rating, thanks to Head Chef Adam Woolven’s vision to create an eco-friendly – yet luxurious – dining experience.

Porro Cardiff

I recently spent 12 months working for Cardiff Met University and over the summer, I used to wander past this restaurant in Llandaff village at lunchtime. I would long to ditch the office grind and spend the rest of a sunny afternoon eating pasta and drinking wine, pretending to be in Italy.

As it happens, it wasn’t until a cold and foggy Friday evening in January that I finally made it in to Porro restaurant in Llandaff (owned by the same team behind the acclaimed Potted Pig) for an evening meal I was very much looking forward to. View Post


I was invited to Porro for the purpose of this blog post and as result all food and drink was complimentary. However, I was not obliged to write a positive review.
