We went for the Sunday lunch, which we have had before(delicious). As always I booked it a few months ago to make sure to get the date we wanted. We were warmly welcomed and taken to a seat in the bar. We were given the menu and asked if we would like a drink by friendly staff member. When we... read more

We had a long intended to visit Mac Nean restaurant and eventually managed to get there last weekend.I would certainly recommend you go for the full deal and stay overnight.It is expensive but the food and atmosphere is well worth the visit. We had the Prestige Tasting Menu with matching wines.A great treat. Not a restaurant for weekly visits but... More

I was taken to Mac Nean house for my 18th as I love trying new experiences. This definitely did not disappoint. I tried many new dishes such as quail and pigeon, all the flavours (even though they sounded unusual to me at the start) went hand in hand. My mother a vegetarian was delighted as she normally doesn't get to... More

Neven never fails to impress but sometimes everything just seems to come together to provide a truly memorable experience. There seem to have been a few little adjustments since our last visit and although minor they have made things even better. The main course seems a little smaller and there is now one side dish of potatoes - this is... More

My husband treated me with a trip to MacNean House for my 40th birthday. To say it was amazing would be an understatement. From the moment we entered the bar we felt like we were in a very special place. The little appetisers we had in the bar were only a hint as to what was to come. We went... More

This was our second visit to McNean house - the first being around the same time last year. We loved it that much we decided to come back. From the minute you enter the service is first class - friendly, warm, informative without being over bearing or too fussy. The food from start to finish was again excellent - with... More

From entering this restaurant through to leaving it was a delightful experience. The staff couldn't have been nicer, the food was to die for and the whole surrounding and just the knowledge the well trained staff had is just some of the best I've seen.

My brother booked dinner at Macnean Restaurant as a special treat for me & my husband on a trip back home to N.I. from Australia. Coming from a hospitality background, I wasn't fussed about going as I thought it was probably over rated. I am so glad he insisted I go as it was the most amazing dining experience. From... More
