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.

We ate here two evenings while staying in a self catering apartment and absolutely loved our food. I had pasta with green vegetables, my sister had fish and hubby had what he describes as 'proper gammon' and being creatures of habit we repeated our order on our second visit! The staff were lovely and very attentive and the cost of... More

We ate here twice over the Easter weekend. They are very accommodating & always seem to squeeze you in to the restaurant or bar area. On the Saturday night we ate in the bar & on Easter Monday we ate in the restaurant. The food is reasonably priced & was delicious on both occasions. We had booked our table on... More
