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.
