The food here is always good, however the service tends to be slow. Definitely worth a visit. Kids meals are generous portions.

Ate here last night. Two tables of 10. Thought they could have ensured a better seating plan. However, the food was great. Massive portions. Although don't think you should have to pay for veg in addition to your steak. That's a bit mean. I had the chicken with Greek salad and although simple enough dish it was delicious, well presented... More

We booked a table, and got a good seat at the window overlooking the gardens by Ramore Head. That was a good start. Our welcome was very good, friendly and we were seated immediately, with someone to give us menus straight away, and take a drinks order. So far so good. The menu is a strange one though. Odd combinations,... More

Heard a lot of good reviews about the Counties but was disappointed with my visit at the weekend. Was greeted by an unfriendly waitress who seated us and threw menus on the table. Drinks order was taken and then the food. When our food arrived (which was quick I'll give them that) my bowl of pasta was saturated in oil... More

Super service from the moment you walk in. Great choice of menu for both adults and children. Food is beautifully presented and always of a top quality and taste. Our favourite restaurant in Portrush. No other even comes close to both food and service. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Eat here while we stayed in the hotel and have no complaints. Our waiter was excellent. Good menu, plenty of choice. Entertainment on the Sat. night we stayed which meant we didn't have to go elsewhere. Would use this restaurant again.

My husband and I decided we would like a nice steak for tea, to save us having to cook it we stopped here, where we had always enjoyed the steaks and friendly staff. Well, the staff are still friendly, unfortunately the steak we ordered from the tea time menu was so thin you could have spat through it, and it... More

Came to this restaurant back in April for a family dinner, both food and service were brilliant. Yummy rump ciabatta and the best creamy pepper sauce I've ever tasted!! Strongly recommend to check out their desserts!! Tasted just as good as they look.

Was here with a group for a birthday celebration on the Friday of the NW200, even though it was very busy, The food came out quickly and was excellent. The staff were all friendly, the Restaurant had a nice and cosy atmosphere. Would say it was one of the best meals I've had. Would defiantly recommend trying this restaurant.
