We recently visited Strada and were greeted by friendly staff who kindly asked where we would prefer to sit. We chose to sit inside, being as it looked a little cosier. The décor was modern and sophisticated with a warm Mediterranean feel to it, with images and messages on the walls spelling out the love of food for me. The restaurant felt alive and made me want to be part of it.
Once seated, we were given menus and was absolutely delighted to see the choice of food on offer for both adults and children. I don’t understand why a lot of restaurants only do the 3 basics such as pizza, chicken nuggets and fish fingers for children. Children also like variety so it’s great to see a restaurant that makes them feel important too.
My son loves steak so he was thrilled to see it on the menu. Admittedly, it can be a little tricky for younger ones to cut steak but luckily it was served in slices, they really do think of everything here! My daughter went for pizza (yes I know what your thinking after what I said), my Husband chose Sea Bass and I chose a juicy steak which was cooked to perfection. The wine was carefully chosen by the staff which really complimented my meal too.
None of us left any of our main courses which is testament to how they were cooked by the Chef. Talking of Chefs, we were extremely lucky to meet with him and congratulate him on the quality of the food served. Also, the children had the privilege of going in to the kitchen to choose their dessert.
The icing on the cake for me was to find out the owner is from Cardiff and his food is locally sourced, it really couldn’t get any better than that for me. I congratulate him for having a great team of staff who were very attentive, and for coming up with such a varied menu.
Having visited Strada with my family, I can’t sing their praises highly enough. I judge service on how staff treat the children, as well as how the food is served, and I can honestly say every member of staff treated my children like they were family. I felt at home and relaxed, which made the experience so much better than I could’ve expected. I highly recommend them for delicious fresh cooked food and for their exemplary service.
