This venue was perfect to bring American friends out for a meal. Staff were friendly and lovely. Presentation of the meal was first class. Everything was perfect. Our American visitors were really taken by everything. The venue and meal could not have been more perfect. There were nine of us in the party.

The best mix of beautiful surroundings with a delightful selection of great food my only complaint my was the latte was a bit cool but that's being picky...a geat experience would easily recommend it to all. I hope you try it and enjoy.

Really convenient on the main street. Beautiful dark wood decor - warm and inviting. Clean. Prompt and great service!! The fish and chips were super as was the tomato soup, served with three different types of bread :)) Would definitely recommend and also would return for a lunch again, or dinner. Great choice.

We have been here before and always have had a great meal - this time was no exception. The food was good and the manager got us seats in the bar afterwards so that we could stay together as a group. If you're staying in Ballycastle, you should definitely eat here at least one night
