Very friendly service but the restaurant was very chilly and the food was pretty poor. Potato dish was not very hot and I suspect was reheated, other food varied from OK to unpleasant, in particular meatballs were incredibly salty.

Aberystwyth is not known for great food so finding tis place for lunch was a real unexpected pleasant surprise. We went lunchtime on a Monday Bank Holiday. It was very busy, as Im guessing it always is but after a short wait we were squeezed in. The food was terrific as was the sherry that accompanied it. If I live... More

Visited La Taberna with a relative who is at the University. There was one friendly waitress on duty and one cook in the kitchen. There was a good choice of hot and cold tapas and we were both well satisfied. In particular we enjoyed the honeyed Aubergine. The Spanish Creme Brule was delicious. The restaurant is perhaps a little dated... More

We found this gem after an otherwise disappointing day earlier this year. The atmosphere was so good and the waitress so helpful. I was going to put a review up earlier, but having got home I found other people had bothered -so I didn't at the time. What has electrified me to make this belated review was our second visit...

Had a lovely relaxing evening where we all ordered something different and shared the dishes. The choice was very varied, both cold and warm tapas, providing a faithful representation of true Spanish cuisine.

Came here for a birthday meal, was always a really good place for both food and drinks. Food was good and the same selection as always but didn't seem quite as good as we remembered it. Drinks were disappointing though. We were given a drinks menu but they didn't have anything available off it. No draft beer and they had... More
