Mermaid Quay is set in a stunning waterfront location in the heart of Cardiff Bay, less than a kilometre from the city centre.

It is the perfect place for dining out or relaxing over a drink in one of the 30+ restaurants, bars and cafés. With cuisine from around the world – from Welsh ice cream to Japanese sushi, American burgers and flame-grilled Latin American dishes to Italian pizza and Portuguese Peri-Peri chicken – Mermaid Quay has somewhere for every taste, mood and budget. Or, you could have a laugh at The Glee, Cardiff’s first and finest comedy club.

Mermaid Quay also has gorgeous quirky gift shops, the fabulous Fabulous Welshcakes shop, Pavers Shoes, Tesco Express, the award-winning Ken Picton Salon as well as other stores and services. And, it’s home, to the Aquabus waterbus service – offering with trips around the Bay and beyond and to the city centre.

In an area steeped in Wales industrial history, Mermaid Quay’s distinctive architecture is inspired by its maritime location and rich heritage – featuring decking, towers, balconies, terraces, colonnades and bridges.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary next year (2019), Mermaid Quay is about to undergo a complete revamp – more information here.
