We visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday ( 8/3/14 ) with 3 young children. The 2 members of staff ( 1 blond female and 1 male ) who attended us were very helpful and friendly indeed. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food but the sooner other restaurants realise it is not just about the food the better. We were made to feel welcome from start to finish . The service we received was worthy of a top class restaurant. Thanks

Visited on a Thursday night, we were quickly seated and our order was taken promptly. The decor is beautiful and this place is really clean. We chose from the special menu and were not disappointed. The starter and main were both decent sizes and the service was attentive but not intrusive. Left feeling very satisfied and will definitely be back.

Visited on a monday night, although the restaurant was busy we were seated promptly. Our server Monique was very attentive and was on hand to offer advice on the menu. Five of us were dining, including one very picky child. Our drink orders were taking with Monique advising on value for money products I.e a pitcher of cocktails being better value than two individual ones. We ordered a starter platter that arrived promptly and was delicious. Our main course followed shortly after our starter was cleared. Our party had ordered three mixed grills with steaks varying from blue to well done, each was cooked to perfection and served together. The other orders were lasagne and fries with garlic bread and for the extremely picky child a plate of plain pasta. The child was made to feel this was a normal dish and made to feel extremely comfortable with her order. The main course was delicious with Monique making sure we had everything we needed. Another male server even got bread for the person eating the blue steak to mop up the juices and didnt make us feel we were being difficult even though he had his own tables to deal with. Monique then overheard us commenting is was one of our parties birthday, and discreetly asked me if we would like a happy birthday sang. When we ordered dessert the birthday girls was brought first with a candle in it and happy birthday played on the sound system and sang by any waiting staff near our table, and monique. A throughly pleasant dining experience, good value for money, excellent staff and fabulous food. I definitely will be back!!!!

We ate her on a Monday night not too busy. Have to say John that took our orders n serviced us is a credit to this company. We really enjoyed our food the philly cheese sauce was out of this world, I don't think there is anything that it doesn't go with.
I have ate here a few times on different days of the week n not once have I had a bad services or food n they have always made my children welcome. Will certainly be back.

We have put off going to F&B since it opened in ballymena due to mixed reviews, however after finally taking the plunge we booked a table the same day for six of us. We were greeted by a lovely young man called Alex, he sounded like he was English. He was very polite and he showed us to our table and asked if everything was suitable for us before taking our drinks order. The restaurant was very busy but Alex gave us his full attention at all times. We didnt need to awkwardly hover around looking for service as he popped over every so often to check everything was suitable, which it was. We loved the music selection, my mother was bopping away to all the tunes. Food and drink arrived quickly and was delicious. We were then showed the desert menu, which we all ordered from. We weren't let down during our visit, the service was fantastic and we all left with happy stomachs. The manager (Tall man, glasses, also English) took our payment and he made lots of conversation with us, making us feel at ease and it was a great way to end our evening. We made our way to the cinema after and we will be doing the same again as it's in a great location for all family people. We will definately be back.
