“Brilliant food, fun decor and family atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The is a little gem of a restaurant, the food is fantastic the service is the same and you can eat while enjoying great views of the sea, marina, beach and Fairhead in Ballycastle. There is a great selection on the menu and the owner are more than happy to make something up for toddlers that off menu. The prices are keen and the interior has a funky VW camper decor, spotless clean and very well laid out inside. We have been back many times and i have personally tried as many different items off the menu as possible and i'm yet to be disappointed.

Whether your looking for a steak dinner or just a cup of coffee you couldn't go wrong choosing here. The only drawback is that it only serves until 4pm :( .

Great food, good value, excellent setting and pleasant service .

“Light & Airy with a Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Just at the Harbours edge with a Great View towards Fairhead. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or any more helpful. The Cafe was very clean & tidy even though busy. The food & refreshments were great value
