We weren’t meant to be here. But circumstance brought us to Medina’s door. Huge thanks to circumstance. And to Medina’s staff for the best lunch we have had for a long time and to the owners for creating a lovely space.

We were torn over what to order. Not that the menu was huge; the emphasis is offering a select, quality menu. Do a few things very well rather than lots of things that are mediocre.

The choice for vegetarians and coeliacs is great if that’s for you. The salads are just amazing. And potatoes with the perfect amount of salt and cumin. Mmmm. And the kiddies pizza that had Halloumi on was a surprising but pleasant twist. We’ll be trying that at home!

Barely had room for cake but couldn’t resist temptation. It was pure gluttony. And now need a nap!!

Next time, arrival in Aberystwyth won’t be due to taking a wrong turning. It will be to visit Medina again. Hats off to all who make this place tick.

Ps - They do take out boxes so we are taking some of the salads and cake away with us for lunch tomorrow!!

The place to come for reliably tasty, creative, home-cooked fusion food in a spacious, relaxed environment. The two large 'zones' comfortably accommodate large and small groups. A 'mini-market' stocks a variety of treats to take home, and a side room hosts a second hand bookstore for browsers. Prices are reasonable, staff are delightful, desserts dangerously irresistible. This is an Aberystwyth treasure.

I eat here for brunch, lunch and dinner whenever I can. Whether its a full tapas or just coffee and cake it's guaranteed to be handmade with care and top quality produce. Happy to accommodate my "no carbs" way of eating I'm always excited to eat here in Medina. And the new premises are awesome!
