Requested an alternative table, which proved to be quite a challenge due to the 'reservation system'. An alternative found in the end, but not without questioning the ability to find an alternative in an empty (6pm booking) restaurant. Common sense should prevail, not computer driven answer!

Unfortunately we were seated right round the back, I understand why, fill up from the furthest point forward but we did feel it lacked a little in atmosphere round there. Apart from that everything else was perfect and we will come again 👍

Harbourmaster came recommended by the owners of our holiday accommodation and although it was a bit of drive it was absolutely worth it! The food was exceptionally good and the service was great too - building our confidence in the evolving measures to manage the Covid controls.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food, (fantastic lobster, oysters & chicken) the service & the fact that it is now possible to book a table in the bar area. Hope this facility continues after Covid-19? Well done everyone!!!!

Another great meal from HM. Food is so fresh and very reasonable the staff made us feel very welcome and coped with the Covid regime very well so that is wasn’t obtrusive.

As usual we were seated quickly and efficiently even though we turned up 1/2 hour late.... Massive apologies!! I had my brother over for the night from East Sussex who is often a hard to please ‘foodie’. I’ve also been very fortunate to have been a good friend of AA Gill and also a business partner of Michel Roux senior. Both sadly deceased, but I know that they would both have been extremely happy with our fabulous lunch. The Harbour Master never fails to impress. Thank you.

Beautiful lunch with wife, mother and little girl. The welsh beef with Asian slaw was lovely, as was the crab risotto - and the little one loved her fish goujons and chips. Empty plates all round. Such a lovely setting and all felt very at ease with the present restrictions. The staff were all courteous and knowledgable, and all safely in PPE. Highly recommended - no visit to Aberaeron is complete without food at the Habourmaster. Bendigedig
