“Best steak in Aberystwyth.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The restaurant itself is not very large and has two sittings when you go at night and you are given a time slot when booking,if you are late then you eat into your time and have to leave when you allotted time is up.The menu is very small but covers most of the meat and a choice of fish.However the quality of the food presented is well worth the effort. The food is well presented and very good local produce is used. It is a delight for the palate and the steak is certainly the best in Aberystwyth . The cost of the meal is a little bit more than alternatives in the area,however you get excellent value for money.
The service provided is efficient and courteous.

“AMAAAZZZING!! RHAGOROL!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

1st visit to Gwesty Cymru, we were here for late lunch following daughters graduation as a family of 5. Staff extremely friendly, attentive, and nothing was too much trouble. Also it's fantastic that all members of staff we met could speak Welsh.
Now on to the food - WOW! We have never had a meal that was that delicious anywhere in the world (and I have tried restaurants in America, Belgium, Brittany, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Spain, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Scotland, Switzerland, Turkey, so I've tried a few!). Some people have complained about waiting, all I can say is it's well worth the wait for fresh local food cooked to perfection! The lobster and steak as main courses were to die for!!
It might be a bit pricier than other places in Aberystwyth but it's well worth the money(approx. £200 for 5 of us - starter, main and pud each, 2 bottles of bubbly, numerous glasses of wine and pints - well it was a celebration! and a few glasses of coke for the youngest member of family.
I'll definitely be back
