My daughter took me to this lunch time hot spot. I was amazed to experience such authentic Spanish meal in Aberystwyth.
Customers walk thru the deli to sit around large wooden tables together in the restaurant at the back; the menus offer a good choice of hot and cold food; good tea and very good coffee are available together with a range of alcoholic drinks.
We arrived at 1.30 pm on a Tuesday, and sat with a young family (on holiday from Manchester) who savoured a fabulous spread of tapas (it was great to see young children relishing olives and really good cheeses) and two smiling senior citizens, who had paella and soup.
Our waitress told us what had already sold out ... It was not problem as a wide choice still remained. The food came reasonable quickly and was DELICIOUS.
I had a lovely crispy banquette (with olive oil, not butter) stuffed full of smoked ham, brie and semi-dried tomatoes ... with a side salad - GREAT value at £5.65. We also had bowls of delicious olives and pickles on the side.
Others in my party tried the tapas: a platter of Spanish meats, hummus, more pickles.
The table was heavy with condiments, olive oil and balsamic syrups.
Everyone in the restaurant was very jolly.
We left some time later ... very satisfied.
There are meals later in the day ... But not EVERY day. I would love to go for an evening tapas and will return soon. The restaurant closes at 9pm ... So go early! Take your own crowd and have a party!
The toilet facilities are generously proportioned, and clean. Baby changing facilities are available.
Clearly this is a family orientated restaurant with flavour and good nutrition as its objective.
No, it is not "fast food" and in fact is as far away from that kind of plastic experience as you can get. TYG for that.
Roadside parking is free around the corner, on the sea-front.
After our meal we shopped in the deli: a great array of (very well kept) cheese and meats; bread and jars of tempting delights, with olive oils, canned tuna, salt, honey saffron and huge bowls of olives and pickles to buy as much as YOU want if the large jars (which were great value for money) are too much.
I bought some brie and stilton (all eaten now) and was very pleased to be offered a sample before purchase; they also allowed me to buy some of the baguettes (part baked) which are now in my freezer for my family to relish at my convenience. I could not resist the jars of pickles (including garlic), saffron and tuna.
After our visit we asked along the promenade in the sunshine; simple pleasures are the best.
In my view Ultracomida offer all that is best about Spanish food, and I hope they remain as committed to authenticity in the future.
