Lovely meal, excellent service. Special treat. On the seafront, but lower than street level. However, the room was tastefully decorated and we were very impressed.

I went here reluctantly for my sister in laws birthday - with her wife and my husband. I say reluctantly as I don't normally do 4/5* restaurants as I never get enough of my plate & I refuse to spend £20 on just a steak alone, however this place surprised me massively, although only small on the inside it has...

Dined at the Gwesty Cymru restaurant while staying at the hotel. To start the dinner, we both had the soup of the day which was quite delicious. For main courses one of us had the lamb rump and the other the cod fillet. Both courses were exceptionally tasty and well prepared. The only little minus was caused by the hard... More

We stayed at the Gwesty Cymru and had both dinner and breakfast there, both of which were excellent. For dinner, my husband had the Apple, Pistachio and Watercress stuffed Chicken Breast wrapped in Parma Ham with a pea and green bean fricassee, butternut squash puree and a white wine and cream velouté, which is still on the menu!

We have visited a couple of times already this year as the hotel is always clean and the food is lovely. Right on the seafront, perfect location for a relaxed stay in Aberystwyth. Will be coming back!

We booked to eat here following research on trip advisor looking for somewhere nice to celebrate our sons graduation. We were not let down by the food, the ambience or the price. We had a very warm welcome from Huw and the staff. The food was all fabulous, we all had starters, mains and puds. Highly recommend it. Well done... More

We've been here on several occasions over the years and find it is very consistent. Great tasting food, friendly and relaxed service. My husband always orders steak with blue cheese sauce, being his favourite. It is rather small and intimate so recommended booking in advance. No doubt we will come again.

We dined in the restaurant on a Sunday evening whilst visiting Aberystwyth for a few days, We booked beforehand as it as a small cosy restaurant and didn't want to miss the opportunity to try the place out. Service is great, food was even better! The staff and chef even managed to cater for the two children who enjoyed it... More

The food here is as good as any from the city. Real quality food prepared with great skill. I had the salmon and it was one of the best I've ever had. It melted in my mouth and the skin was perfectly crispy all the way through the center. The hollandaise sauce was good too, nothing too bold that would... More
