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.

We asked a local to recommend their favourite restaurant and they sent us here, I'm so glad they did. The food is phenomenal and the atmosphere is very authentic. Definitely come here! I highly recommend. Try the honey aubergine - to die for.

We were looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled here by accident - what a find! It was Easter weekend and wet and windy when we found La Taberna. The lady that greeted us and seated us at our table was so warm and friendly. The menu spoilt us for choice. When the food came it was perfect - hot... More

I have visited La Taberna several times now and it is by far the best place to eat in Aberystwyth. The food is incredible and served promptly. The staff are friendly, welcoming and happy to help tapas newbies who have no idea what to order. The decor is traditional and cute , with authentic stone walls and Spanish memorabilia scattered...

We came here after walking round in circle finding a restaurant that we supposed to go. The place is rustic and yes it was a bit cold, had my coat on until we left. The tapas selection wasn't too bad. The hot tapas and the salad were good. The cold tapas too was OK although tuna tasted like a tinned... More

A small but cosy and beautiful restaurant named ‘ La Taberna - Restaurant Espanol Tapas’ located somewhat off the main road and likely to be missed by visitors is a place which food lovers cannot afford to miss. Offering Spanish food at reasonable rates, the speciality of this restaurant is that items of small portions are served; so the visitors... More
