I had not heard of this restaurant until my friend recommended. It was excellent in every way. Lovely setting, beautiful food, welsh produce and so unexpected from my Aberystwyth stay. I wish we had something like this in Cardiff.

Five us ate here on 13/8 everything was excellent. Small cosy restaurant. Staff very friendly and accommodating. I can't eat Spinach and the chicken dish I wanted was stuffed with cheese and spinach, so I asked if I could have it without the stuffing as I can't eat Spinach! When it came it was stuffed with cheese but no Spinach,... More

We were very lucky as the weather was perfect and we were able to sit outside and watch a beautiful sunset. The food was delicious. Well cooked with fresh ingredients and good portion sizes. I had chicken breast, wrapped in pancetta and stuffed with spinach and Welsh cheese with a Marsala sauce and it was moist as well as very... More

After much researching and consulting TA reviews, we picked the Gwestry Cymru restaurant and called in late afternoon to book a table. Many of the eating establishments in Aberystwyth looked quite scruffy and seemed to cater mainly for the student population and day trippers but this place stood out as a comfortable restaurant with a great location on the seafront...

Not quite sure how a restaurant that opens at 6pm can have run out of both specials by 6.45pm but, disappointing though this was, the other options proved delicious and plentiful on the plate, especially the chicken breast, wrapped in pancetta and stuffed with spinach and Welsh cheese with a Marsala sauce. The staff were friendly and helpful to one... More

It was an excellent dining experience. My family and I went first to dinner there, and came back the next day for a wonderful lunch selection too! You have a great lunch menu from small platters to large, a delicious selection of desserts, tasty coffee, and professional service; that and reasonably priced menu for the top standard you receive. It... More

We were fortunate to get a table for dinner. It was very pleasant and we ate outside. The meal was excellent and we spoke to a local couple who were dining next to usand they said it was the best restaurant in town. The service was excellent also.

One of the best restraunts I have ever eaten at. Great selection of wines, menu that makes you want one of each dish, service impeccable. Will definitely be returning on our next visit to wales.
