The family had a lovely meal at Garfunkels recently. The decor is modern and stylish but best of all they must have air conditioning as it was lovely and cool a real bonus in this hot weather. We ate from the early bird menu which is £10 a head for two courses (starter and main) there is also another menu to choose from but there was enough of a selection on this to please everyone. The food was well presented and very tasty.They are liscensed but you can also bring your own wine and beer. Our dining age ranged from 6 years up to 86 and everyone enjoyed their meal which is a rare event. I would recommend a trip here.

This was our first time to visit Garfunkels with friends for early bird meal which was excellent. There was a good choice of freshly cooked food, nicely presented and served by a very friendly and helpful waitress. We look forward to visiting Garfunkels again.

Haven't time or desire to cook tonight you must try Garfunkel's in Ballyholme Bangor. This small but attractive restaurant is very well worth a visit. The food is delicious in terms of flavour and delightful is trems of presentation. For a family meal or a dinner with friends I would recommend Garfunkel's but be sure to ring ahead because others have discovered this gem.

I also have been a regular here sine it became a family run concern by husband and wife team - Simon and Claire - i fail to understand some of the feedback here as I know from experience that the general feedback in the VILLAGE here is excellent ,and this is justified by the return guests and the fact that that most evenings one need to reserve a table ,especially at week ends.
FUNKS, as myself and my coffee mafia friends call it, - have great staff that rarely ever change and excellent with all guests. The availability now of Wi Fi is very acceptable as it had i know hindered some business and SMART PHONE users from being sometimes able to go in case they needed or were awaiting communication of messages. However this is now on tow. The £10 - seven day a week deal is unbeatable and the day time venue turns into a dimly lit and effective place to be at night . The only reason for my one star missing is the music lol - Sometime it is ok..and probably because i am in the entertainment business my ear is more sensitive than others and i feel the volume is often far to low and the sound quality not that good.....however ,saying that - as the restaurant fills up this disappears and the volume of guests talking and chattering it thankfully fades into the background. The investment on the new coffee making is fantastic and funks, now offer the best flavored coffee in not only the village but the town ..and talking of flavors- the all new flavors to add to the drinks now I see displayed - keep the good work up ....

We went to Garfunkel's on Saturday 8th June to celebrate a friend's 70th birthday and I can honestly say that it is one of the best nights out we have had for a long time.

The staff could not have been more helpful from the waiting staff who were polite, friendly and professional to the management who helped me to organise the party by putting together a special menu for us.

The food was excellent and was enjoyed by everyone there. There were 24 of us and usually there is someone who doesn't like something but on this occasion all 24 said the food was great.

The whole restaurant has a nice friendly and welcoming atmosphere and with it being a lovely sunny evening there was also the advantage of being able to sit outside for a while too.

Overall it was excellent food and first rate service. As Arnie would say - I'll be back :-)
