Modern take of food

Must make reservations as it's quite small and times are about 5:30 and 8:00. They don't rush the meal and it's a relaxing environment. We arrived early to check-in and since there was a bike race outside we were able to get a table sooner than our 8:00 reservation. Menu was quite broad and we... read more

Ever heard of Arancini? Yes, little balls of risotto and mozzarella loveliness. Ever heard of Kale Arancini? Neither had I, but they were delicious! The garlic mayo for dipping was outstanding (I mentioned to Huw that they should bottle it!!) the Sunday lunch beef daube, roast chicken and salmon fillet were all perfect. And I'm reliably informed, by two very... More

We stayed at the well run Gwesty Cymru 8th - 11th May, 2015. The view from our bedroom, the blue room, overlooking the sea was fabulous, the restaurant was excellent and the service in the hotel caring. We were unwell on Sunday, result of eating at the Medi Delight - Mediterranean Restaurant, but the hotel staff were very helpful bringing... More

I attended this restaurant for our most recent staff Christmas party, December 2014. We paid slightly more than we'd usually pay for our Christmas party, but it was more than worth it. I opted for the Christmas scotch egg starter, which was delicious, and fairly filling, as was the main meal of roast beef and seasonal veg! Staff were very... More

Cosy little restaurant - we were given a table by the window to watch the sunset over the sea. Food and service fantastic!

Visited again and already booked a table for my next visit in September. The food is amazing.every plate is thoughtfully put out and looks mouthwatering! Celebrated my daughters 21 birthday and we were well looked after. Last time I had an issue with the staff not being attentive enough but this time they were very good. 80 pounds for a... More

With reference to my other reviews of Aberystwyth eating establishments, Gwesty Cymru is the only place worth eating at in Aberystwyth itself. I wasn't originally convinced a good few years ago, but my recent visits have proved excellent, particularly regarding the food. The management have understood, and have acted accordingly! Everything was perfectly presented, and the quality of the ingredients... More

My partner and I haven't been to Gwesty Cymru for about 6 months as we were becoming a bit tired of the menu. However, last night's dinner was really great with a select but interesting range of ingredients e.g. Welsh mussels; red mullet; fig ice cream. Relaxed but serious dining at its best.

We have eaten here on two occasions when visiting Aberystwyth to see our eldest son who was at the university. (Since graduated). On both occasions the food has been delicious and the service attentive but not overbearing. It was easier to get a table in April than in July due to the popularity of the restaurant during graduation week. We... More
