Went with 2 friends and two of us were vegetarians. The menu selection was very poor and had not changed in 6 months as far as i can remember. The sauce with the pasta dish ws so so rich and made the dish unpalatable. The other dish chosen ws sea bass and this ws average. But the service from the... More

Good menu, great service. However, tends to be cramped for Space so not great for conversation. Food served quickly and efficiently.

Well this was a most enjoyable experience for 2 evenings. On entering the Bistro we were greeted and seated by a most pleasant member of the staff. We ordered drinks and were allowed time to make our choice off the very extensive and some might say quirky menu.The meals themselves were of the highest quality and hot / presented well... More

I dined here on three evenings of my stay at the hotel. It has an informal, bustling, congenial atmosphere, and fleets of waiters and waitresses ensure service is brisk. I was impressed by the quality of the food which comes in generous portions, and the £13,50 menu available from 5 to 7 is a terrific bargain.

Description
Elliot's Bistro has earned itself a well deserved reputation for its good quality food! Fresh, locally sourced produce has been an important part of the way we've done business since well before it became trendy! Elliot's offers a wide range of classic and contemporary dishes, a large choice of wines and cocktails, friendly staff and good value for money. We always have a good selection of vegetarian and gluten free dishes on offer and can cater for a wide range of other dietary requirements. We also serve Celia Organic Gluten Free beer. A buffet lunch proves popular each lunchtime, and with entertainment at weekends, it is definitely the place to be whether for a quiet business lunch or 'a good nights craic' on the Causeway Coast!
