Great value , good food and nice atmosphere

Had a meal last night in the Harbour Bar with a group of 7 friends. We nearly all had steaks which were cooked to perfection.We shared breads, dips, olives etc to start. Service was excellent . Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Most things that change degrade, the harbour bar just got better. Twenty two years between visits the only question is why didn't we come back sooner.

After being away from Portrush for a number of years, one of the things I was most looking forward to was a nice quite pint of Guinness in front of the fire in the harbour bar. After a good long walk up the strand and around the town I called into the harbour bar for the Guinness I was dreaming... More

After 20 years of going to the Ramore we decided to try the Harbour Bar after hearing such good reports. The food is much of a muchness if not slightly inferior to upstairs, however the staff were helpful and courteous. Personally I prefer the openness of the Wine Bar and of course the outlook.

Lovely food. Desserts are amazing. Bit strange that to order you have to go to bar and carry all your drinks back. In our case 4 beers and a bottle of water and 4 glasses. Also when we got our desserts we were told to get our own spoons even though the staff had just walked by them. Its great..good... More

As someone who was originally from Coleraine but who has lived in England for quite a few years, I have long known about the delights of the Harbour and the Ramore complex. I visited again at the end of April with some English friends as part of short walking trip I had arranged for them. I am glad to say... More

Nothing fancy but great folks behind the bar that know how to pull a pint of guiness - very friendly! Love how prt friendly it is! Reasonably priced but they only accept cash so heads up! Every town needs a place like this one!
