Having dropped our daughter back at her flat on the sea front. We wanted a bite to eat before our 2 hour journey home. Being 5.30 it did look closed, possibly an improved open/close would help. But we were welcomed in and sat at the bar until they started serving at 6pm. Lovely, clean and tidy, a very modern finish,... More

We decided to eat in the restaurant whilst staying at the hotel. Although small, the restaurant was modern and stylish. There is a limited but varied menu and the food was cooked to perfection. The service could not be faulted either. We can recommend both the steak and the pheasant.

Visited here for lunch, and I must say the quality of food, presentation was top class. I had a stuffed peppers dish, which was absolutely stunning! It's definitely worth visiting, full credit to the chefs at this restaurant! Definitely will visit again soon!

We have been here before, we knew it would be great and the service was exceptional. Quite expensive but the menu items are all original and most interesting. In contrast with many places like this, they do have a welcoming attitude to veggies. A quick email correspondence beforehand resulted in the owner/manager offering a truly inventive main course designed around... More

A lovely small restaurant with exceptional food and very good value for money. A fairly short but very interesting menu - I had rabbit risotto to start and stuffed pheasant as a main both were well cooked and very tasty. It was full on a thursday night so I'd recommend booking in advance

Aberystwyth is a small university town and there is inevitably not as much choice as you will find in major cities and towns in the UK. However, if you are looking for somewhere with consistently excellent food and service in Aberystwyth then it has to be the Gwesty Cymru. I have lost count of how many times I have eaten... More

My husband and I visited Gwesty Cymru for dinner a few weeks ago as we had never been and as we live so close we were keen to try the food we had heard so many good things about. The restaurant is in a lovely position over looking the sea and the restaurant inside is lovely and bright. While the... More

We had a variety of small dishes which were tasty and well prepared. The service was efficient and friendly. Prices were quite reasonable, and we did not feel rushed, as we lingered over coffee without being made to feel we had to ask for the bill. A very pleasant lunch.

Bottle of Champagne waiting in the chiller on arrival, great service and perfectly cooked food. Salmon was a delight for the birthday girl and the Lamb fillet I had , just lovely. Thanks all for a fantastic night.

Being a family with varied dietary preferences, we 'shopped' around for somewhere special for our daughter's 21st birthday meal. Most places offered a (to be expected) limited menu but Gwesty Cymru seemed to offer a menu that would suit our tastes. (It's a shame most places like this only offer a single vegetarian 'option' (which doesn't really make it an... More
