A buzzing and busy place. Even mid-week we had to wait for a table. You have a drink in the tiny bar until they call your name. Large serves of fish and seafood in addition to steaks, lamb etc. A mix of locals and tourists indicate that its value for money.

Very of bar. The staff is perfect and the pints are too. It can get very crowded but that is part of the atmosphere. Willy makes the place so much fun. A must when in Portrush.

Not really our scene. Very very busy. Cramped Table Layout compared to other restaurants. Food was good though.

A nice place to eat and have some drinks in a relaxed atmosphere. The food was really tasty and although we only had wine, there is a wide range of beer to choose from. The people are welcoming, as usual in Ireland.

My partner and I decided to have dinner in the Bistro last night. The place was really busy and we didn't mind waiting. We were told half an hour. That became nearly an hour and a half. Their problem is that they pack people into a real small space. It feels like a school canteen and the noise is deafening!... More

Great night out. The Harbour Bar has a good thing going. We ate dinner downstairs at the bistro (you order food and drinks at the bar). We had the crab and chicken hot pot, the Thai prawn and monkfish hot pot and the lamb. All were delicious! The food came quickly and we were able to head upstairs to the... More

This bar must have the friendliest bar owner / manager. Willy made us feel completely welcome. We were found a nice spot by the fire and had our drinks bought to us. I could have stayed here all day.
