“Fantastic lunch and great service”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

My partner and I had lunch here and it was the best we've had in a long time. We both had the ploughman's lunch. One had salmon the other ham. What a treat. Delicious fresh salad with warm new potatoes, coleslaw, pickle, fresh warm bread and generous portions of ham and salmon. Service was very friendly by all the staff and our waiter was very chatty and efficient. We sat on the terrace overlooking the harbour as it was warm day which was lovely. Prices were reasonable and we would certainly choose again when in the town.

“So good, we went back again.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Decided to call in Aberaeron for lunch while driving down to West Wales, so checked trip advisor first. Certainly not disappointed with The Cellar. Great location on the harbourside, great staff and really good food. I had the Open Steak sandwich which was really nice.

“Food OK but service poor”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Yes, as the title says, the food was ok, i've had better for what I paid. The service was the problem. Our order was taken by a very pleasant young man, but he got our wine order wrong. A woman brought our wine to us, and poured it into our glasses. When I mentioned that it was not what we ordered, she said, "Oh well, it all tastes the same." Not wanting to make a fuss at the start of our evening, we said nothing. Thankfully, we continued to be served mostly by the young man, but occasionally, by the woman, who would scowl and obviously wish she were somewhere else. We waited an age for our dessert to arrive, but did not question this, as to be honest, we were too afraid to approach the woman waitress! After asking for the bill, from our table, I paid the young man with cash, which resulted in them owing me just over £10 in change. I also give him a £5 tip. After waiting for another age for him to return with my over £10 change, we decided to go the front desk to ask for it. He replied by saying, "Oh you want it". The woman then appeared, and I cannot be sure, but I believe she said something unpleasant as we left.We will not be returning.

“exceptional”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Dined here twice this year on holiday, easily found on the harbour front, so has stunning views from the terrace, décor is simple and elegantly modern, the service is exceptional, very welcoming and friendly but the food is simply divine! Fresh ingredients, cooked to order so be prepared to wait a little while, it is so worth it. weekly specials so need to check. Ploughmans lunches are delicious as are all of the desserts. After dining its lovely to sit with a drink or two on the terrace watching the sun set. Children are welcome in the restaurant and dogs welcome on the terrace only.

“Tasty, good quality food”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We both had seared scallops followed by roast duck. By that time, my wife was too full for a whole dessert so we shared the delicious lime cheesecake. All told, the food was excellent, good in quantity and providing for a very satisfying meal. Slightly negative points were bread not being served with the starter, a limited choice of wine by the glass, a fairly spartan ambience, and although by no means full, the noise from other diners was intrusive on occasions because there is nothing to absorb the sound. Finally, the service was a little slow taking an hour from arriving at the restaurant before we got the main course. However, that was not really a problem.
