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.

Excellent local produce and friendly service. Always busy so book in advance. In the more clement weather, there are spaces outside. The position is opposite the sea and esplanade so good views assured.

So so so so glad we decided to come here for lunch today; and thank goodness they were open because last time we came they were shut for the day! Lovely location by the sea. It would be gorgeous on a nice day but unfortunately it was chucking it down with rain. Never mind, we went in anyway! Both mum... More

Be aware - book first! And with good reason. This is possibly the best meal I have had in a restaurant for as long as I can remember. The food is excellent, the atmosphere and decor lovely and the staff are attentive without being intrusive. If you go to Aberystwyth, do NOT miss this culinary delight. A hard act to... More

Good atmosphere, helpful staff who don't intrude too much, quality food. Well balanced flavours and a good variety. What I most appreciated is that the menu wasn't things I would cook at home they had an extra bit of spark.

Great food, lovely atmosphere, efficient helpful and friendly staff. Perfect! We were staying for just one night and hadn't booked for dinner. They managed to squeeze us in - but if you want to be sure you can eat here it think you probably need to book.

It was not only the sea views that were good in this smart modern restaurant. Four of us had platters of three dishes and we all enjoyed what we had which included a Welsh Rarebit - which I thought I didn't like but after trying this one I have decided I do - a delicious Mackerel Pate, a Chicken &...
