We love this resturant. Have been going there now for a a few years. Absolutely delicious food served fresh. We try hard not to have the Paella, but can never resist. It is the best I have ever eaten and one I often try hard to emulate at home. Make sure you book even if you just phone in the... More

Come here fairly often, food is always lovely as well as the setting. Proper authentic Spanish tapas and very good value for money! although it is a small place tucked away, it is always busy and the food is unbelievably good, waitress is a little bit slow and not very observant but other than that the place is a hidden...

The place itself I've walked past a few times, however from now on I will most serinatly not. It was without doubt the best tapas I have ever eaten in my life, the portions were amazing I highly recommend the beef in red wine. The fish paella came next which was shared between 3 people it was the perfect amount.... More

Tapas bar. Very tasty especially the aubergine fritters with honey. Unbelievably good. Garlic spicey prawns, calamari, hake all delicious.

A lovely change to see authentic Spanish food on a menu rather than the usual same old choices. Sea food salad starter excellent, prawns and hake with tomatoes and onions in garlic and olive oil. Very fresh and delicious. Swordfish mains was also very nice with potatoes and salad. Very good value, service excellent and lovely staff. Only slight complaint... More

Visited here with a group of friends for a meal, which was served buffet style. The food choices were great and it tasted delicious. Great service too. Well worth a visit if you are in Aberystwyth fancy something different and want good value for your money.

Following the huge sea storms of some 2 years ago Aberystwyth Council should be very proud of its superbly rebuilt sea front promenade overlooking Cardigan bay however the streets immediately behind this look somewhat neglected if not scruffy and it is amongst these that La Taberna is to be found. Staying in Aberystwyth for three nights to participate in the... More

We visited La Taberna this week to celebrate our anniversary when we were staying in the area. We decided to order a selection of the cold and hot tapas - all of which were superb. We particularly liked the honey aubergines! The wine was also nice and not over priced. The only problem was that after so many tapas we... More

We dine here as often as we can. Excellent food combined with great service makes for a fantastic dining experience. Ask for a "Carwyn special" and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. We are always made welcome and are looking forward to our next visit.
