Ffresh

Wales Millennium Centre Bute Place Cardiff CF10 5AL

Located inside the Millennium Centre – hence popular with theatregoers – Ffresh is the standout restaurant in Cardiff Bay. Under the guidance of Shaun Hill (from the well regarded Walnut Tree in Abergavenny), this sparkling restaurant offers a range of menus, from a fantastic set lunch to pre-theatre menus, although you can also eat a la carte if you want to. The dishes are both highly inventive and beautifully presented, such as grilled plaice with oxtail and white truffle foam, and leek, hafod cheese and red pepper strudel. Food is also available in the snappily designed Ffresh bar, adjacent to the restaurant, where you can chomp on succulent homemade burgers or just pop in for a pre-show glass of wine or cocktail. Oh, and they do a kids' menu too, with not a chicken nugget in sight.
