From the warm welcome on the door to the excellent bar staff Tates is nearly a Holywood institution .

Ate there on a quiet week night and the team in the kitchen produced a lovely healthy option of chicken with crudities .

It was lovely !
Will try out the restaurant next !

Called in for Sunday lunch, first visit since it opened. I was disappointed to be sat right in front of the kitchen which was noisy and distracting and when the meal arrived the mash potatoes were really cold. I mentioned this to the waiter who was very apologetic and offered us free tea and coffee which we declined. The dinner itself was large portions but a little plain although great value, the meat was cooked really well and the staff were vert friendly but not very knowledgable. They could not tell us if the rib beef was on the bone or not and in fact told us incorrectly. Desert was very plain. Overall I would not hurry back as it seems very basic in ideas and presentation but the surroundings are lovely and the staff friendly. Good value if you are hungry.

Had dinner here recently with a group of friends, the service was excellent the food was just ok. I had a fillet steak sandwich and it states on the menu that it is served pink, which is right for me, but the steak was over cooked and quite tough. Two of my friends ordered sirloin med rare and again it was very well done, the chips and other sides, however, were fine. The waiting staff did a sterling job on an exceptionally busy night and the atmosphere in the bar was great. We will definitely return and hopefully the steak will be up to par with everything else at Tates.

Had heard good things about the place and called in today. All in all a very good addition to Holywoods range of eateries. Interior is good and the menu has a lot of the usual grill bar favorites. We had the fillet steak and the burger - both were excellent and nicely presented . Service overall was good - staff were fairly attentive and efficient , although a little more warmth and a smile or two wouldn't go amiss. All in all a very good experience and we will be back.

Was here on Sunday for the first time since it opened. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. There was a children's entertainer on but it was fathers day after all. We both opted for the Sunday roast. It was enjoyable but my lamb was a bit fatty. We had lovely desserts and overall an enjoyable few hours. Would go back.
