Brilliant Early Bird menu, fresh food and attentive service, reasonably priced in clean modern setting. No kids menu.

I visited Garfunkels with my hubby and daughter for the early bird and was impressed with the value and quality on offer. For £10 between 5-6.30 nightly there is a pretty extensive 2 course menu available, with quality food and generous portions. Include the opportunity to bring your own wine and it adds up to an enjoyable and affordable Saturday evening. The young owners are making a success of this Bangor eaterie and I will certainly return.

Just back from having a lovely brunch at Garfunkels, very tasty and very reasonbly priced. The only downside is that there never seems to be an atmosphere about the place which is a shame. Overall I really like this little bistro and will come back.

We went for a family dinner on a Friday evening. Very good service, a well-priced menu, and delicious food which was very well-presented. Highly recommended!

I had been here a few times before when it was the fat cat. With only 1member of waiting staff stretched to her limits, service was bit slow. For lunch menu the prices had jumped from before. I had ordered the lasagne & chips & my friend had fish & chips. The presentation of food very good except fish batter very dark as if the oil in deep fat fryer needed changed badly & the chips very dark skins from dirty oil. The portions are very small for the high prices! There is no Atmosphere any more in the place & its a Saturday lunch service.
When I got the bill there was sides added to lasagne for £2.85, which did not state on menu there was extra cost, any other restaurant sides are always included. It is 1 of my pet hates that sides are added on as extras! This should be told to customer when ordering. I have never in my life paid £11.80 for lasagne & chips...I would expect this in a higher establishment. There is a recession going on & with prices like that people will be put off coming back. With the price of the total bill for lunch £26.35 & 2 breezers I would expect pay this in Crawfordsburn Inn, where it has expectional class, atmosphere, & value for money. I'm very disappointed with Garfunkels & will be telling people how dear it is for lunch!
