We were lucky enough to eat here on Sunday. The restaurant is small and they were busy with tables reserved. Yet the girls said we could eat providing we vacated our table by 8pm. The food is amazing. One of the best meals we have ever eaten. Well done ladies.

Lovely little restaurant on the beach front. Took my mother for lunch and wasn't disappointed, service was excellent and reasonably priced for the quality. My mother said the cod was the nicest she'd had in years and I had the king prawn coconut curry which was also lovely, not spicy (but that's how I like it) the presentation was also... More

Excellent service, very nice dining room, very relaxing and peaceful. Menu is good, good wine selection. Food quality mixed, some things very good, others just average.

Attracted by the sign on the pavement we popped into this very unassuming looking place (in the basement) in search of lunch - and did we find one! Excellent food, great staff - overall a very pleasant lunch indeed. We understand they also have a boutique B&B upstairs.

While on business in Abersywynth I was fortunate to dine twice at Gwesty Cymru. The intimate but modern ambiance was the perfect setting for creative menus featuring Welsh products prepared in imaginative, international fashion. Service was excellent and the staff warm and professional (and Welsh speaking). By far this was the best restaurant I experienced in Abersywynth. Located on the... More

Visited the great restaurant at this establishment for an impromptu honeymoon meal & we were delighted we did. The food was locally sourced, freshly cooked, of a very high standard & reasonably priced a hidden gem well worth hunting for. When we are in Aber again we will not hesitate to pay a return visit. Made a special evening very... More

We had dinner here on Sunday, we didn't look at any reviews being Easter Sunday we weren't sure if we could get booked. By the skin of our teeth we managed it and are we glad we did. We thought the previous dinner the night before was good, but this was excellent. My wife had the cod loin for main... More

Booked ahead to meet school friend, also took teen daughter. The food was freshly cooked and presented well. Good flavours, and well thought out mix of ingredients. Deserts lovely and different ideas. There is a small bar area as well as the main restaurant. On the sea front with outside tables as well, but set back so it doesn't feel... More
