Went on a recent Saturday with the family. This is one of my favourite places to eat locally. Food was great and the service excellent. I'm surprised it does not rate higher on Tripadvisor as consistently high in quality.

Hadn't been here since 2005 but had heard great things so I took my girlfriend for lunch. The only plus point was the service, lunch was very busy but the waitress noticed we were waiting to be served and went out of her way for us. We both ordered panini and unfortunately they were the worst I've ever had. Burnt,... More

Most of our table ordered steak as a main course, all cooked in different ways and we all received exactly what we ordered. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. There were absolutely no... More

Undoubtedly my favourite restaurant in Carrickfergus. Food and ingredients always of a high standard and I always feel that effort goes into the preparation. The menu has great variety and daily specials are excellent. Definitely a hidden gem.
