Went for a meal for our sons birthday. We had his two children with us and they could not have done more for us. Beautiful food and when the childrens food order of fish fingers came it was pure chunky fillets of fish. The steak I had was delicious as were all our meals. Service was brilliant too.

We went in here for lunch to give this restaurant a try as we had not been eating here since it changed owner ship. It was always a place that served tasty food at a very reasonable price. The interior had changed for the better and the new brighter colour scheme had certainly done a lot for this quite small... More

What a little hidden gem this place turned out to be! I stopped here for breakfast with my (Vegetarian) girlfriend. She had a large vegetarian breakfast whereas I had the 'wee' one. The food here was of a very high standard, the bacon had plenty of meat and wasn't the horrible stringy type you sometimes get in other restaurants, the... More

Booked a table for 8, and duly arrived, there was a new menu different from the one on the website. We wanted steak but discovered the cafe did not offer mushrooms!, left and went to the local chinese instead.

I am a regular to Sozo, it really is the best place to eat in Carrickfergus. There is a great selection on the menu and all good value. I love the pasta dishes and the lovely friendly staff will make you up a great sandwich or salad. I would recommend it for a delicious lunch or dinner at the weekend.

Six of us booked this little bistro for a Saturday night treat and we were not disappointed, starters consisted of chicken wings and sharing breads which were beautiful to say the least, mains were steaks all round and a steak sandwich, I have to say it was one of the biggest steaks I have ever been served in a restaurant...

This place is a little cracker. Deliciously cooked food, great service and all with a very reasonable price tag. Visited recently with extended family, everything we experienced was spot on. Well done folks, we'll be back for sure. 10/10
