Five restaurants in Wales with a gorgeous view and affordable price
The Cardiff in the Sky event scheduled for next week has been cancelled. So, why not use refunds to go to other restaurants with beautiful scenery?
Diners who were hoping to experience Cardiff in the Sky, a 100ft-high dining experience in Cardiff, priced between £50 and £150, do not need to wait until 14 April to find low-cost meals with a view.
This is the second time that the customers have been given the disappointing news that the dinner was postponed. The “dinner in the sky” was supposed to be held outside Cardiff’s city hall, where diners would enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of the city as well as meals cooked by some of the city’s top chefs.
But now there is no reason to fret as Cardiff has an opportunity to explore new restaurants. Here are five of the most famous restaurants in Wales where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and delicious food at an affordable price.
1. Grape & Olive Meridian Tower, Swansea
The Meridian Tower is a residential tower in Swansea, Wales. It is the tallest building in Wales. Grape & Olive is on the highest floor of this tower. The restaurant is especially famous for its seafood.
“We are a family owned Welsh business owned by Brains Brewery specialising in delicious fish dishes,” said Ffion Davis, assistant manager at the Grape and Olive restaurant. “We have beautiful views of Swansea Bay during the day and Swansea City during the night. Night or day, it’s beautiful either way! During the day you can see the beautiful beach and during the night you can see the beautiful lights from Swansea city.”
This restaurant provides a really charming 270 ° panoramic, from Benllech Bay, taking in Red Wharf Bay and beyond to the Great Orme in Llandudno. It is St David’s Park’s very own restaurant and bar and welcome by parking and local residents.
“Without question our totally unique location with views overlooking the ‘supermodel’ beaches of Rhossili Bay and the equally iconic backdrop of the storm island of Worms Head,” said Adrian Short, managing director of the Worms Head Hotel. “The ever-changing scenery is perfect for photographic opportunities for all seasons depending how you like it.
“If you want dramatic waves crashing over the headland, high seas, gale force winds and spectacular storms come between November and February. If world class sunsets, blistering sunshine and calm mill pond seas then come anytime between April and October.”

With amazing private dining rooms and an incredible view of Swansea Bay, this is a perfect place to celebrate a special moment with friends and family or have a casual lunch meeting.
“I think the panoramic view across the Swansea bay is the big draw to the people that come and eat here,” said Scott, general manager of Bistrot Pierre. “We offer great French cuisine and good value for money. The restaurant is very beautiful, it is situated in the old Tivoli amusement which use to be an old arcade and has now been completely restored to a restaurant. Customers come here for the atmosphere, to meet the locals and enjoy the view.”
This spacious restaurant features an open kitchen with a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Bryn’s team of chefs transforms simple, local and seasonal ingredients into an extraordinary bistro-style of food.
“We use a lot of local produce and we’re trying to keep everything as local as possible,” said Alick, bar supervisor. “The open kitchen allows customers to see all the chefs work. We are surrounded by glass restaurant so I think the view is big. People would like to sit by the window to enjoy the view. Even in a horrible weather, on a rainy day, it is still nice to watch the rain by the window.”

This restaurant provides truly mesmerizing 270° panoramic views extending from Benllech Bay, taking in Red Wharf Bay and beyond to the Great Orme in Llandudno.
“Here is a stunning location with food, drink and excellent service. each season is worth for customers to enjoy the scenery here. Even on the winter day, people can sit in our restaurant and see storms over the sea. You won’t get any of this view from other restaurants,” said the manager of the Tavern on the Bay.
