Oh how glorious was the weather last week, one could almost have mistaken for thinking it was the height of summer or that we even lived somewhere more exotic. It certainly made my mind wander to thoughts of far flung places, beaches, cocktails and palm trees and around this time of the year our wanderlust and travel plans are always in full swing so when Elegant Resorts challenged us to find a touch of the Caribbean in Cardiff we were very much up for the challenge.

John opted for various plates of Tapas which all looked divine, especially the Patatas Bravas and Cajun Creamed Mushrooms and I went for the Grilled Halloumi with spicy tomato rice wrapped in a banana leaf with a lovely fresh Cuban salad of green lentils and mango which I highly recommend this dish. As this was our first proper date since having the baby it only seemed right to treat ourselves to some fresh and tropical cocktails and they have a great selection, especially anything to do with Rum as there in house Rum Store has over 70 to choose from.
We really could not have asked for a better afternoon lunch in the sunshine in beautiful surrounds with deliciously fresh food as well as friendly and informative staff, like I said I really don't know why we have not been here before and having heart they do cocktails in teapots I am sure we will be back again when we want to capture the essence of the Caribbean in our souls and our stomachs and it's certainly set our minds on an adventure to St Lucia or Barbados hopefully sooner rather than later.
