Description: The Carlton Restaurant has been under new management since its opening on 3rd July 2013. Owned and run by former chef and owner of the popular Corner's Restaurant on Chalybeate Street (who have also welcomed famous Welsh celebrities in the past such as Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews from Catatonia), Toni and her partner, Gaffari, would like to welcome everyone! The Carlton Restaurant is centrally located in the main town centre of Aberystwyth and boasts an elevated position (above Superdrug) overlooking the main street. Locally-sourced and fresh ingredients and home-cooked with great care and attention to customers' health and well-being are at the forefront of The Carlton's aims. Customers can enjoy delicious and healthy drinks knowing that every beverage consumed helps to support producers in developing countries. Diners with a sweet-tooth can also try Toni's locally-famous home-made cakes and various desserts - her Lemon Meringue is a particular favourite amongst customers! The Carlton Restaurant also caters for specialised dining so customers with food allergies and intolerances can also enjoy The Carlton's food without worrying - simply mention your requirements to the staff. The Carlton Restaurant is also a popular venue for groups. Large groups (10+) are welcome to exclusively book The Carlton Restaurant on Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights. With customers' choices and satisfaction in mind, Toni and Gaff can also custom-make menus. A large selection of wines, beers and cocktails are also available (either during the day or in the evening!).

Lovely cafe above superdrug! Good to watch people passing by and have a coffee! Can get busy at lunch times, people always fighting for window seats! Good food and value for money

“Best Restaurant In Town”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

very clean and welcoming cafe! the food is excellent ~ huge portions and i mean HUGE Main meals are only £6 and the amount of food you get is quality. lovely coffee and my daughters ''the works'' hot chocolate looked brilliant. the staff are lovely and very friendly and welcoming, the lady with blonde hair taking our bill was very polite as were the other ladies working! I've never seen such happy waitresses, one of them looked as if she had won the lottery with her happiness and the young red haired girl serving drinks was also very lovely and polite. they were all very polite and great with the customers. Coming here on a day trip from swansea made my day worth a visit for all

“Good quality food”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Visited here lunch time 11th February 2012 with my husband.Had a bit of a wait but the food was absolutely superb with generous portions. To be honest, the food served here was of better quality than Varsity, SALT and Weatherspoons and of a similar price range.

I would visit again and recommend it to others.
