Late Booking - the Better Half decided on Friday night she wasn't up for a big roast. I couldn't help - as I had a commitment; running the line, up at Sardis Road. So - what were the options? Not many... Had some ideas, but 1st & 2nd Call - fully booked. Made a 3rd call & delighted that Grey at the Hilton in Cardiff would be happy to accommodate a late lunch for 9. Set Menu, though. Not a problem, sure we could find some delights in there... Arrived & courteously escorted to the bright and contemporary restaurant front, overlooking the Kingsway.
Delighted we were shown to our table and offered the A La Carte menu, as an alternative.
The Team were attentive, accommodating and so helpful. The party age ranged from 3 yrs to 70+ with a 21 yr old, 18 yr old and 3 x teenagers as well - so we'd (no doubt) be hard work!
Drinks sorted & starters were ordered. We were then offeredsome bread. You have to try the selection of breads, with butter, oil and goats cheese - Delicious.
My Eggs Benedict (guilty pleasure) was spectacular.
4 of us (2 x Adults + 18 yr old & 12 yr old) opted to share the Tomahawk - 1.1 kg of Rare Steak. Perfectly prepped, cooked & then brought table-side & sliced - presented on Himalayan SaltRock platters. Left on the platters, just long enough to be seasoned, to perfection - accompanied by Fries (Skinny & Sweet Potato), Portobello mushroom and a selection of sauces (Garlic, Bearnaise & Peppercorn). An absolutely delectable and succulent meal.
The young ones had various dishes from the Kids Menu & whilst the food was spot on, I cannot express how attentive and obliging the Waiting Staff were. Whatever we asked for, they responded to so well. Even when we hadn't asked for anything, we were quietly approached to see if there was anything they could do for us.
As a result of the Tomahawk Steak, preceded by appetising starters and the bread and olives - nobody had any space for desserts!
I will definitely put Grey on my shortlist, for the upcoming Mother's Day Lunch...
Thank you to the attentive and courteous Staff at Grey - they made the Family Occasion and Easter Sunday Lunch; a memorable and most enjoyable meal...
