I visited Eight South back in April with the family and I can safely say we won't be returning. I ordered my steak rare and it came on a sizzling platter. If I wanted a sizzling platter I would of ordered it. So when I actually got my steak on a normal plate it had gone to medium as it... More

Very attentive staff with good, wide selection of food for both children and grown-ups alike. Big portions for adults. Good value at standard prices. Suits all age-groups which is really good for family dining out. Plenty of varied seating and attractive, modern ambience. I recommend Eight South

Have visited this restaurant a few times and the the food and the service have always been superb. Yesterday was no different. I wish I lived nearer so that it could be my local.

Honestly with 4 kids, we get many tuts and scrowls from other diners and staff. We went to eight south and the staff could not have been better, patient and attentive. The food was great and well priced. We had a party of 9 and although we had a few comments from one diner it is one of most relaxing... More

This is a lovely restaurant. Modern, clean. Many positives- bar attached, off-licence. We visited on a very quiet Wednesday night. We had -throughout the night- difficulty getting the attention of the staff-- and there was enough of them for a less than busy night. Even though service was slow- staff themselves were lovely. We all found the food a little... More

What a great night at Eight South in Carryduff at my Sons evening wedding party. Special thanks to Trevor and staff for a warm welcome and great service. Fish n Chips in a cone - delicious. We will all be back for more excellent food and hospitality.

We visited along with a very young grandchild on a busy Saturday evening having booked in advance. We were shown immediately to our table where a high chair had already been place for our grandchild. The tables are a generous size so that there is ample room for everyone. The attention which we received from the staff was first class... More
