PENARTH restaurants feature heavily in the 7th Food Awards Wales 2024.

The Food Awards Wales has to be one of the most comprehensive competition's on the culinary award circuit celebrating everything from 'restaurant of the year' to ‘dessert outlet of the year’ – and yes there is a Vale restaurant in that category.

For Penarth, there are some staple restaurants included in nearly every food awards ceremony year in year out and some less well celebrated, but equally treasured, town eateries mentioned including the likes of Villa Napoli and a popular restaurant on the Esplanade.
