Modern décor, quality professional caring service, impressive unique menu and a comprehensive wine list. This resulted in a memorable night out. There is seating outside for warm evenings, and the inside the restaurant highlights welsh slate. Recommended for an enjoyable fine dining experience in Aberystwyth.

Found this lovely place Thursday evening after arriving in Aberystwyth. We sat outside with a drink to admire the sea-view. Booked a table Friday for dinner. Both my husband and I had sirloin steak, homemade chips, salad, pepper sauce and garlic mushrooms. It was all beautifully cooked and presented. Staff were friendly and polite.

Superb dinner here this evening - Halon Mon chilli and garlic squid, followed by perfectly cooked mint glazed rump of lamb and then rhubarb crumble. The only really good restaurant in Aberystwyth as far as I can tell.

My friend and I had one of our best meals here. The only down side was that they had a party of 16 that same night and it was way too noisy. The food was excellent however and service efficient.

This is the place to go for good food. It's not the cheapest in the town, but if you want something special, or it's a special occasion, then this is the place. It's small, but they have either spent money on the design, or they are just dammed good at what they do. It's an intimate setting, I choose that... More

You can sit in the downstairs or on warmer nights al fresco out front and enjoy the view of the water. Great food and plenty of menu choices. Save room for dessert (pudding) as it is not to be missed.

Came for a meal with friends, booked a Saturday night. The restaurant is small but not stuffy. Clean and modern. With Welsh slate touches. The food was superb, all locally sourced fresh food. Can't fault any of it. Not a vast menu, but all sounded very appealing! Service was great. Would definitely recommend and come back next time I'm in... More

My wife and I visited Gwesty Cymru for dinner. All the staff were very welcoming, bilingual, speaking Welsh and English. The restaurant is situated on Marine Terrace and faces the sea. It was a glorious evening and we had a perfect view of the sun setting over the sea. The food, venue and service were all excellent. The menu had... More
