Limited but upbeat feedback this year on the Morgan family’s lively, sixteen-year-old Hispanic café/bar in a first-floor high street location – the original of what’s now a three-strong operation in South Wales, and now with a newly opened Bristol sibling too. A selection of tapas is backed up by a wide range of wines and sherries.

Very Good
* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.


For a “top tapas selection with a good mix of meat and fish choices”, washed down with “great sherry”, head to this vibrant café-bar – part of a three-strong South Wales chain.

Very Good

Owner's description

The Bar 44 Group of Tapas Bars are all slightly different with their own unique menus and ambience. There is, however, one common theme which runs through them all....the passion and desire to bring the very best food, drink and hospitality from modern Spain to the heart of South Wales.

Tapas y Copas (tapas and drinks) is what we do. Using the finest Spanish produce known to man, coupled with the best local produce we are striving to produce the finest tapas, and our passion with Spain knows no bounds! 

We have won several awards for both food and drink, just last year we won Cardiff Life Magazine Restaurant of the year as well as being The Good Food Guide Reader’s Restaurant of the year.

Almost everything we serve is made on the premises, or traditionally cured and aged in Spain and carved or cut by ourselves for our customers’ pleasure. Our food is complemented by a superb array of drinks. As much effort and passion go into sourcing and creating our drinks and extensive cocktail list with a distinct Spanish flavour, as it does our food.
