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

Have been meaning to try the Gwesty Cymru for a while, having heard good things about it and with the excuse of a family birthday booked a table for a second Saturday night sitting (has to be done by 'phone - no facility to book tables online). What was evidently the basement of a seafront guest house has been tastefully... More

I think this is my first ever food review so let me know if you think it is helpful. This is a lovely restaurant on the seafront in aberystwyth. It is pricey and it could be described as formal however we wore jeans and didn't feel out of place. The food was absolutely delicious and in my opinion worth every... More

Attended for meal to celebrate friends son's 21st. Great atmosphere in sleek contemporary slate restaurant. Well looked after by owners and staff. Excellent meal with very large portions. Overall a perfect evening. P.s. Limited glimpse of hotel upstairs looked equally as smart.
