Four of us came to dine here and we all thought the flavours, presentation and portion size were bang on. I had the pan fried cod and samphire and my only criticism with my food is that it didn't arrive at the table as hot as I would like but I still enjoyed every mouthful. The only other downside was...

We decided to have a day trip to Aberystwyth with our elder daughter who was home from London. My husband booked this restaurant for our lunch as a nice surprise. It is ideally situated on the Promenade with a great sea view. As the weather was behaving itself we took a table outside to enjoy the sunshine. So as we... More

First the positive: the food was excellent. Faultless. We had Borscht to start, followed by the roast plaice special. Delicious. Now the not so positives. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time, and said to the guy who greeted us that we'd have a drink outside before eating. But he was having none of it, giving us a choice... More

Really nicely presented little restaurant! Very helpful & friendly staff, good service, menus & although not the cheapest good value for money! If you want something a little less 'bucket & spade' this is the place!

The Gwesty is a marvellous find right on the Aberystwyth Promenade, minutes walk from everything Aberystwyth has to offer. The service, the food, the people are top notch and if its a small hotel/guesthouse with a lot of class then you can do no better than the Gwesty. Rooms are stylish and well stocked and the bed was one of... More

Food is awful here. It has no taste whatsoever. They wrapped the chicken breast with ham and stuffed it with fat drenched veggies and it still taste like nothing. Rice cakes have more flavor. Server said "the chicken takes a while to cook would you like some bread?" And then charged me £3 for two pieces of bread. Really?! I've... More

Fine food, good service. Not an impressive big menu, but very good, with the food well cooked and presented. The service must also be noticed. It was very pleasant and the suggestions were quite good.
