Demiro’s Restaurant in Cardiff Bay

View of Demiro's restaurant.  Copyright, Paul Thomas 2008We had a very nice lunch in Cardiff Bay this week. The restaurant is called Demiro’s. It’s located in the Mermaid Quay complex just across the Oval Basin from the Millennium Centre. We normally grab lunch in Coffee Mania but decided to try somewhere new. I’m normally put off by the bigger restaurants in Cardiff Bay for lunch because of the price, but now most of them do cheaper lunchtime express menus. They’re obviously aimed at the office workers who work in the nearby Welsh Assembly and Atradius.

The food is a mixture of styles based around Mediterranean. We had a good sized meal each and drinks for £15 for two. Service was good without being too attentive.

Thoroughly recommended for lunch.

A Tranquil Cardiff Bay

Cardiff Bay in the morning
This has to be one of my favourite shots of Cardiff Bay. I took it in October 2007 at about 9 in the morning. The Bay is amazingly smooth and the reflections are great. The St David’s Hotel is in the background.

The wooden structures in the foreground are called dolphins and were used to moor ships against when the bay was a full operating port. The Bay is a great place especially when you get good weather like it was on this day.
