We spent the day in Aberystwyth and ate at La Taberna early evening. It has the atmosphere of many a traditional restaurant in Spain. Service was excellent, very friendly and welcoming. Food was really nice and very good value. We had plato mixto to start, a selection of chorizo, salchicon, serrano ham, ewe's milk cheese, olives etc - all nice and delicious little olives. We followed with a selection of tapas between us, merluza (hake) a la cordobesa, ensalada de atun y pimiento (salad of tuna and red peppers), patatas al pobre (potatoes done with garlic and egg) and albondigas (meatballs). Our chosen dishes were all delicious with lots of interesting flavours. A couple of glasses of house wine each washed everything down nicely.
Our only criticism would be that it grew slightly chilly as time went on - it had been a lovely sunny day, but temperatures do drop in the evening at this time of year. To be fair, though, the waitress did turn the heat up when she noticed. Other reviews mentioned that it is cash payment only - but there is plenty of warning of this, by notices in the window and verbally before we sat down.

Very nice food, atmosphere and Miguel as well :D You should make a reservation if you want to go there for a dinner because it's usually busy. :)

I love the atmosphere of this restaurant. Despite there only being 2 other diners there it still felt cosy, especially placed next to the fire. The lady serving was very attentive. There was good choices on the menu and reasonably priced. The Paella is quite pricey though. We decided to go for the paella and a couple of the tapas dishes. The Tapas were great but unfortunately the paella was super salty and a little uninspiring for the price.

The thing I really like about La Taberna is the wide range of tapas dishes they offer. I have tried their paella and it is pretty good, but the best meals I have eaten here have been with other people and we have all chosen 3 or 4 things from the tapas menu and then shared them between the group as our main course. The honeyed aubergines are fantastic. It's fun and interesting and different from anywhere else in Aberystwyth. I also like that they open early, definitely by 18.30 and it might be 18.00
