    We ordered the lamb to share between two and it was delicious! The staff were very nice and setting lovely. Great wine list available - would love to have tried some more.

    Beautiful, cozy little restaurant with a warming atmosphere as soon as you enter. Prices can be a bit steep but it is well worth it for the taste and experience.

    We had a good meal here. Food was nicely presented, with good flavours and decent-sized portions. As always, a warm welcome. We’ve eaten here several times, and will return.

    Fantastic dinner at La Cuina which has a great laid back atmosphere, we could decide which starters we wanted so ended up ordering 4! The salt cod was the star and literally melts in the mouth. Great evening and great wine. Will definitely be a regular here

    It's a nice little place, there is a large car park around the corner, the food is authentic and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

    The tapas starters were amazing and the sausage was the pic of the bunch. The lamb main was also exceptional and plentiful. There wasn’t a chocolate dessert option which was a shame but the almond cake was decent enough.

    Absolutely outstanding - we love La Cuina. Food is fabulous and the staff are even more fabulous. Whenever we come to Cardiff from North Wales we always try and eat there

    The food was excellent and the atmosphere warm and cozy without being crowded. I would recommend getting a few starters as the mains portions aren’t very big but you are paying for quality rather than quantity Nd it is immensely worthwhile.

    The service was fine the same with the ambience. The starters were average to poor, the brusketa was a slice of bread with rubbed tomato on (!). However the main courses were much better, I had the fish of the day which was nicely cooked and assorted by vegetables. The overall experience was satisfactory. My opinion is however that the dishes are overpriced.

    Had some fantastic tapas dishes here before heading to a concert. The food, wine and service was excellent. Best dishes were the scallops, the prawns and the patatas bravas.

    We had a fabulous lunch at La Cuina for my daughter's birthday. Worth searching this place out. Food was delicious and a great selection of wines. We loved the scallops with prawns and the Mountain Lamb. A very intimate yet relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended.
