Best Restaurants in Wales:
Wales has a variety of restaurants and outlets that offer traditional
Welsh food, to more international cuisine and numerous fast
food enterprises are located all over the country. Some more
quiet and conventional, some on the more modern side of the
road, there is something to cater to all tastes and moods.

Located in a small village in Monmouthshire, is The Foxhunter,
its food as intriguing as its name. With an impressive menu that
is updated often to keep things interesting, high quality ingredients
are used to make dishes such as Caper and Red Cabbage Remoulade
and Wild Garlic Soup. The simple yet detailed dishes keep food
lovers attracted to the menu of modern British cuisine.
For something more traditional, The Felin Fach Griffin Inn is
a recent favourite, famous not only in Brecon where it is located,
but also outside of Wales. This may be owing to the unique fact
that it has its own organic kitchen garden, thought to be the
first of its kind in Wales. Seasonal menus have some fine Welsh-sourced
ingredients to offer, in the form of dishes such as Woodpigeon
and Welsh venison. To add to the informal atmosphere, produce
from the garden is sold in a small stall, so you can take some
fresh aromatic delights home with you!

waterfront restaurant in Cardiff Bay, called Signor Valentino,
which has become a popular favourite on the Cardiff dining scene.

Quay, and works well for more corporate lunches to an informal
meal out with the friends.
For delving deeper into the eating scene in Wales, Llys Medygg,
in Newport, Pembrokeshire, is the place to be. Not owing to the
restaurant itself, but to its seaside surroundings where Welsh
is still spoken as the first language. The high ceilings and
large windows give it an air of spaciousness and the aim is to
create a more metropolitan image in a town with rich heritage,
offering food such as Preseli lamb and caramelised carrot chips.
