We went in on the last night of our Holiday. Staff were attentive and friendly but not intrusive. They have a fantastic kids menu with other options than the usual nuggets you get everywhere. We ordered the roast chicken and gravy for my son. The toddler bowl of champ with gravy is inspired. So much that once he has polished... More

Took my wee granny here for a bit of a catch up and we both really enjoyed it. Good food and good service. Restaurant was quite quiet so we didn't have to wait very long.

Staff were friendly, main course was well cooked and tasty. Very disappointed in the goats cheese bonbon starter. 3 tiny balls of breaded cheese hidden under a few salad leaves. So small I could barely taste the cheese.

Father's Day at the Ava Grill Restaurant wasn't expected but a nice surprise from my daughter and son in law. We were made very welcome and settled in comfortable clean seats and table. The menu was suitable for our needs, my wife won't eat chips or fries so enjoyed the spring onion mash or 'Champ' in Northern Ireland. Our 3... More
