“Excellent food at the Diamond Bar Bistro, The Diamond, Ballycastle BT54”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Second time eating here, excellent food, service the same, nice surroundings. Moules Mariniere to start with, had the honey and chilli chicken for main, was beautiful!. Side order of bowl of chips to share was not needed, and no room for the pudding. Will defo go again. Told new expanded menu on soon, so even better.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

Stopped in here for some food and a drink on a very wet night. Decided to sit in the bar area to watch the start of the football and the bartender seem surprised when I wanted to eat there as the few locals that were in were just drinking. The Diamond burger was absolutely fantastic, the best bar burger in a very long time.

While there there was a good stream of customers who were just going straight to the restaurant at the back so most people must agree that this is the best in the area for food.

“Best in Ballycastle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

When I'm in Ireland I always go to Ballycastle to visit family. I have eaten in all the restaurants and bars and this one is BY FAR the best. The restaurant is at the back of the bar which is run by bartender Charlie. He is a good guy, really friendly with plenty of Irish blarney.

The last time I was there I had roasted root vegetable soup for starters 9/10, only because I could have eaten more. I had steak for mains and it was really tender, no fatty bits and cooked to perfection.

I noticed a lot of the resident population in the restaurant and I reckon that is always a good sign. It was full with no free tables in sight. The price of the meal was very inexpensive compared to other places and the service was good. Looking forward to returning there soon.
