First Review by Littlething

Needs Improvement - Edit

1st time I went there with some non vegan friends. I ordered the vegan burger with chips. I much appreciate that they have a Vegan menu however this was a poor standard of a burger which I would not recommend. It was too sweet and not flavourful to my liking. I only liked the chips.

Pros: Vegan menu

Cons: Serves meat and dairy, Food is not tasty.

breakfast at Cosy Club - Edit

i would put 5/5 stars but as it's a place wich serves meat I can't. We took a lovely breakfast (Vegan Breakfast) from their vegan menu and got: baked beans, spinach, mushroom, tomatoes, falafel, potatoes and toast. Tasted great. Service was very good. They have soy milk as an option as well!

Pros: good food, good service

Oh dear! - Edit

We thought this would be a good place to eat, as it is in one of the central malls in Cardiff... but oh dear! The restaurant is at first floor level, so you can't see what it's like from the street... you go up steep stairs and then find that it is full of leather armchairs with, as described before, some animal heads... the lighting is very low and there is quite loud 'background'.. maybe that should be 'foreground' music... worst of all the 'vegan/vegetarian menu' is very very rudimentary, with just about the only vegan dish being a kind of burger, where you paid extra for vegetables, etc.... I started to feel ill, and left.

Pros: location

Cons: very little choice for vegans/veggies, horrible, leather-based decor, Relatively high prices

used to love it here - Edit

has its own special menu. unfortunately service and standards have been going downhill. had been served dairy eggs etc. although apologies free meals and drinks the standards used to be higher. when the correct food did come it was tasty enough. a shame really. however it won't stop me from going back again. some people are put off by the interior due to the animal heads. the place also sells meat. so be prepared for dead animals everywhere.

Excellent! - Edit

Would have given it five stars but the app won't let me as it has meat options. The food was amazing I had the vegan falafel sandwich and it came with fries and coleslaw. It was tasty and left me feeling full. The staff were lovely and service was very quick. The decoration was nice and the open plan design means there's no feeling cramped.

Pros: Separate menus for vegan and gluten - free options, Resonably priced

Yummy Beet burger - Edit

Went today and was very happy with the beet burger (didn't try the panini because of the disappointed review below)The burger crumbled a little in the bun but it was moorish and so were the chips. The sorbet and the Dark Chocolate and ginger torte from the bar were also lovely.
The first waitress who met us, I felt, seemed amused at the vegan couple but the lady who served us put that out of my mind. She was helpful and approachable.

Really didn't like the dead heads of the animals on the wall but I suppose the more vegans who go the more out-dated that decor will become ;)

Pros: Yummy food

Cons: Dead Head Decor

Disappointing food, overpriced, bad service - Edit

I was here with my (non-vegan) boyfriend and I tried the Vegan Panini and he had the Macaroni cheese (vegetarian). He liked his food but I was very disappointed with my food. I payed £6.50 for two small paninis, small amount of fries and a tiny bit of salad. The paninis were supposed to be filled with hummus but I felt like the hummus was used to butter the bread and it really didn't taste much at all. The fries tasted fine but after finishing the meal I left feeling hungry.

The environment was somewhat cozy but very crowded. The staff seemed rushed and wasn't all that friendly or service-minded. The only positive thing I can think of is that they do have a separate vegan menu so hopefully one of their other dishes might be a bit more satisfactory.

Pros: Separate vegan menu

Cons: Disappointing, tasteless food, bad service, overpriced
