Called into eight south on 15/02/15, first impressions were very good. Ample parking and the outside was clean tidy and very well presented. Once through the doors the relaxed and friendly atmosphere takes over, the place was spotless and the decor was impressive. It seemed quite busy but none the less we where show to our seats straight away and... More

Ordered a takeaway pizza - bbq chicken. Drove to collect it and when I got it back it was the worst pizza I've ever seen. There was practically no sauce on it and 4 small pieces of chicken (on a large pizza). Phoned to complain and they said next time you order it will be free. Phoned a week later... More

The choice was to get a taxi into town and risk getting a reasonable meal, a few drinks, then wait for a taxi home or just walk to Eight South again and be guaranteed a great meal in nice surroundings with friendly staff and a pleasant walk home! Thankfully I made the right decision and it was superb again!

I not eaten in this restaurant before but certainly was not disappointed. The eating area was very spacious, warm and very welcoming. All the dishes both starters and mains were delicious, loads of flavour, and excellent presentation. Service was prompt and waitress very helpful and courteous. Would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Having recently dined in Falmouth at a certain Stein fish restaurant I was amazed to have even better Fish and Chips at 8 South (and for half the price!) Great portion size as well as fish texture and taste. I will be back for more when in Northern Ireland.

Our regular Saturday lunch venue - clean, quiet, friendly staff, good service and chicken curry to "kill for"! Side portions of mushrooms are the best I've had anywhere.
