“Smart bar with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Visited the bar on Wednesday evening and was greeted by very friendly staff who were attentive but not over the top. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was very welcoming. Would definitely visit again if I'm back in the area.

“Perfect choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by our guest house close by and my daughter and I both enjoyed it. She enjoyed her pizza and I loved my tapas - Patatas bravas and mozzarella salad. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed with a really nice mix of diners. I also felt that it was good value and will return again!

“Fast, Friendly and Filling!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Not being local to Ayr we were heading elsewhere however were tempted into the Meridian by its welcoming, fresh and tidy frontage. Waiting staff were helpful and food was good, both mains were excellent however the "sides" ( onion rings and garlic bread ) were disappointing as seemed mass produced in contrast to the rest of our meal. That said however this can be a downfall for several restaurants so would not let it put us off visiting again if ever in Ayr.

“Friday breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

I usually go along for breakfast on a Friday morning and have the same thing each time - the selection is very good and the breakfast roll and coffee is good value. I always have the poached egg on toast, with a coffee. This is a great place to go for a chat in one of the booths where you are rarely disturbed by noise and the Staff are happy to keep you topped up with coffee and let you either chat or work using the free wifi.
