good for a plain good meal

It was a good wholesome meal - vegetarian options available. It is a little bit cramped but otherwise grand.

Food was served by professional friendly staff was inexpensive and very tasty. It was a typical chippy with nice clean tables and there was free wifi too. The staff came down and brought the wifi password and were very friendly. The hotel we were supposed to be staying in had a crap wifi service so it was great to be... More

We ate in the BallyBuffet Bistro on our way home from a day out. We got one of the booths for 6 so had plenty of space as we were a party of 4. We chose off the specials board, although there is plenty of choice on the menu. Staff friendly and attentive. We all enjoyed our meal and while... More

Menu is very poor, very little choices! Food didn't impress me or my family to much! Wouldn't waist my time in going AGAIN!

They have changed what was a great menu to one that is pretty hopeless! There are very limited choices and not very good ones at that. Very very disappointed with this. We observed people going in then leaving after seeing the menu. Others also seemed to save face like us have a starter and leave for another restaurant. On going... More
