“Great location - good service, and good food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We wanted to visit the Giants Causeway, so we stopped here for afternoon tea and a scone, left the car in the car park (avoiding the rip-off car parking charge at the NT visitor centre next door!), and walked down to the rocks. The service was very pleasant and helpful, and whilst there we saw they had mussels and seafood chowder on the evening menu, so we booked for that evening and came back for dinner.
The food was great, the kitchen and staff very helpful, and the wine and ambience satisfactory. The hotel also appears to be a very pleasant place to stay, quite genteel and with lots of wood panelling and deep carpets. The views are absolutely stunning.

“such a disappointment :-(”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

i checked out menus on their website an hour before we went but...all there was on offer was a mediocre menu.NOT one thing similar to that on the web .I note the place has had a makeover but it is style over substance.There were 4 other tables and the maitre d' was clumping everyone together!! The choice was extremely limited.I had small portion bbq ribs to start and my hubby had veg broth..this was so salty.I had cod goujons which were tastleless and the only thing that was flavouring them was the vinegar i had put on them! Hubby had steak sandwich which he said was ok.My mum had chicken with champ and pepper cream..My dog had 2/3 of the chicken when we came home.Mum said it was bland and practically insipid...Bill was over £45 and NOTHING would make us go back.The Causeway has not only lost its charm and ambience but the quality and variety of the food, or rather lack of it has left a very bad taste in our mouths.

“Good food. Service depends on who serves you.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Food is really good although the menu is quite unexciting. The service really does depend on who serves you, a young man took our order but ran off after we ordered mains & my husband had to go find him to give him the order for sides. A different staff member brought the meals, set them down and took off without asking if we wanted anything else (which I did). However, the lovely young girl who took the desert order couldn't have been more attentive!!

“family meal”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We visited as a family
of 10 over the May day holiday weekend. The restaurant was quiet but we had to wait for about an hour after placing a food order. The waitress was a bit put out when my daughter asked for tumblers instead of wine glasses for the children insisting they were shatter proof.
The meals did not all arrive together and overall the food was only ok.
I have stayed in the hotel in the past and the refurbishment looks good but I do not think I would
want to
book in now.
Looking at other reviews this seems to be a theme.

“Beautiful decor and excellent sandwiches”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

After visiting the Giant's causeway, we decided to have a late lunch here thanks to the TA reviews and are very glad we did. The restaurant is decorated exactly how we pictured remote hilltop restaurants to look like. We had the toasted sandwiches, which were delicious and cost £5 each (great value)! Highly recommended!
