Cardiff Bay Food Festival

With the most pubs per square mile of anywhere in Britain, Cardiff is the place to go for good food and drink. Places to eat include the Zerodegrees microbrewery with views of the Millennium Stadium. At Zerodegrees, beers are brewed on site. A great menu includes stone-fired pizzas cooked on a stone-hearth oven in the centre of the room, and the venue is a contemporary choice that's popular for lunch or dinner.

Also worth a visit is the unusual Milgi lounge, serving meals and a wide range of drinks including cocktails. Live music performances take place regularly, there's a comfortable yurt available for private hire if you're looking to relax with friends, and the lounge includes a toilet cubicle that's got three cinema seats and a 40-inch TV so you can watch independent films and documentaries on your own or with a few other people. The toilet within is still fully functioning.

If you're looking for a more formal or romantic atmosphere, consider Jamie's Italian or Giovanni's Restaurant. Other favourites include Madeira Restaurante, the Le Monde Fish Bar and Grill and the Miller and Carter Steakhouse including hand-cut 28-day steaks. Want to sample the best of Cardiff's food and drink? Find accommodation in Cardiff City Centre, and enjoy easy access to the capital city's restaurants, pubs, cafes and bars.
