When we finished with our tour of the Giant's Causeway, we came back to this restaurant/pub. It was comfortable, the food excellent and the price just right.

Service was good and lovely ambiance with fireplace! My daughter ordered the soup of the day (tomato) and it too, was very good!!! Soups are served with an Irish... More

We ate there while visiting the Giants Causeway. We didn't have much time, but the service was quite quick. The food was delicious. I had the soup of the day (roasted red pepper) that was excellent, and it was served with the tasty Irish brown bread and butter. I also ordered a salad that was a bit too oily. My... More

Great place to visit if your at the mighty 'giants causeway.' Staff were friendly, helpful and polite. When I enquired about the waitresses' favourite meal, she said it was the Lamb meat Irish stew. And it did not disappoint!! A hearty bowl of meat and veg that was fit for the giant Finn macool himself! Even better we got to... More

This is one of those places we have visited on an infrequent basis over the last 8 years or so. Have had bad service in the past but the food has always made up for it but on this occasion the food was just terrible. I had a burger and fries not much to go wrong there except the skinny... More

This restaurant it's such a shame. Nicely located and delicious food but the service is awful. I told I was in a hurry to get on the bus to go back to Dublin but not only they did not care, but also they were rude and unfriendly. They even decided to serve first a couple that had arrived after us...... More

We arrived at the Giant's Causeway early and our party of 5 adults were hungry. The restaurant was only open for scones and coffee. We purchased several to go to enjoy at the Causeway. The scone only made it to the tables out in front of the restaurant. They were fresh, warm and absolutely delicious! They came with all the... More

This place was recommended by our B&B. Taking into account that there are few places to eat along the coast, we would actually recommend giving this place a miss. The pub has a stunning location but all the tables face a TV that nobody is really watching and the atmosphere is not really what you would expect at a world... More

Stopped by here after doing the Giant's Causeway, which is just right next to their parking lot. I had the Irish stew (portion was huge) which was so amazing and I tried to finish but there was just too much. My husband had the deep fried prawns which he enjoyed and said the batter was light and fluffy but not... More

We enjoyed the Nook. The food was hot and very much enjoyed. The service was good and very helpful. Loved the menu which told the story of the building as well. They also had a roaring fire in the fireplace which on a cold blustery day was appreciated.
