Bushmills, Moyle
04/08/2020: We have just got back from Tartine restaurant. This is my first visit and definitely won’t be my last. We were shown to are table and told about the one way system good social distancing measures was in place. We decided on the early bird menu which I had seen on trip advisor. We ordered chicken parfait and squid to start with which we shared and my husband ordered steak and I had the fish and chips we also shared the mains. The food was fab steak had a lovely flavour and the fish was gorgeous. We had coffee as we couldn’t manage desert. This is a place which is definitely worth a visit it’s lovely inside and the waiters and waitresses were first class. Excellent service.
29/07/2020: First time back post lockdown and i was really impressed. Really good systems in place which made you safe. Staff well trained and very aware. We went forv he early bird menu which is amazing value and food drill excellent. Looking forward already to returning.


Billy Andy's

Glynn, Larne
11/08/2020: Visited this restaurant mon 10/8 with my husband for some lunch .... booked it online through opentable ...... when we arrived , it was quite busy , but all staff had PPE and there is a one way system in operation, which is good . We decided on the 3 course lunch, and realised pretty quickly, that it was very busy and most of the staff where run off their feet . So we expected a long wait between courses , and that's fair enough, given that they had twice as many covers in , than they would have on a Saturday. I know this because one of the staff told us !! .... now not wanting to make a fuss , we patiently waited between each course , infact we where there for just over 2 hours !!! ..... found it hard to attract the attention of anyone to get our bill .... but there again, we where patient ...... so whenever the senior member of staff came over and told us that we would have to vacate our table, I was gobsmacked!!! ... our dessert plates hadnt even been lifted at this point and i was finishing my coffee!! Not good . Either up the staffing levels or dont take so many bookings .... it's a simple enough solution, rather than taking it out on diners because you think they have been dawdling over their lunch !!!! .... now it's just as well that the food is excellent , so tasty and very well presented, so 5 out of 5 to the chef !! And for the quality of the food , the price is very reasonable...... this review should have been all about the fantastic plates of food, the atmosphere and the ambience of the place, which is simply first class.... but I'm afraid the attitude of some of the staff has marred what should have been a perfect lunch
09/08/2020: My wife and I went as part of the eat out to help out deal, the restaurant was really COVID compliant, staff were excellent, friendly and efficient, I felt for them and everyone working in the open kitchen with their PPE, the menu was fantastic, the quality and flavours of the food was fantastic, great value for money, can’t wait to go back

Mayur Indian Restaurant

Killycrot, Carrickfergus
29/07/2020: There last night with three friends and had a brilliant meal from starters to Mains. Great beer and Dev and his family make you welcome and vert attentive. To be honest We go at least once a month really because we have never had a bad meal and service is five star.
19/07/2020: We had our first meal out since lockdown. Up until lockdown we visited this restaurant around once per week. Since lockdown we got a carryout. Once the restaurant has been allowed to open we have waited The welcome, the menu, the food were even better than we remembered. The food is excellent and all the front of house hygiene and social distancing measures are in place. We were made very welcome in this family run restaurant which made us very comfortable.

Kiwi's Brew Bar

Royal Portrush, Coleraine
26/07/2020: Had read and heard good things about this place so thought we'd try it for dinner (kids and parents). Called to find they didn't take reservations but as we weren't coming on a Friday or Saturday, we would be ok and so it proved.We all had pizzas and one portion of chicken goujons, which were really pretty good but the chips (whilst big portions) were of the frozen variety so one star off for that.Took off another star for service, although willing and cheery (not always the case in NI) everything had to be asked for rather than just put on the table as a matter of course, this included cutlery , serviettes, water. No-one checked if everything was ok during the meal and after the food turned up we didnt see another staff member until we had to ask for the bill. Indeed if anyone had checked to see if we wanted more drinks we would have likely said yes, so they did themselves out of selling another round of drinks.This is really a bar the beer was decent) that does food on the side and so could do better in that regard, but it wouldn't be hard to improve. Overall maybe 3 1/2 but cant do half stars here.
29/02/2020: Staff and burgers, friend and I visited and the staff were very welcoming. Made us feel very relaxed and entertained. We also had a burger and wow!! Best burgers!! Plus Mark the chef recommended some great extras also


Anzac Bistro

Glentaisie, Moyle, <20£
07/08/2020: A fantastic meal in a restaurant fully respecting the seriousness of the pandemic. Amazing meal and service where we felt totally safe but also relaxed. Fintan and his team were so supportive, Rib eye stark to die for, great value wine and superb Guinness. Super value and a lovely ambience. We will be back
07/08/2020: We ate here on Wednesday night and it was stunning. Staff really friendly and food was outstanding. Would recommend without a doubt.


The Boatyard Coffee Shop Coleraine

Dundooan, Coleraine
09/03/2020: A beautiful little coffee shop with lovely food ,great atmosphere and very friendly staff. The raspberry and white chocolate scones are homemade, delicious and would melt in your mouth. I would highly recommend a visit here.
20/02/2020: We have experienced many high end coffee shops and restaurants throughout the UK, Europe and further afield. This place is fantastic and one of the best for great coffee and fresh food we have experienced. The staff were amazing in particular Lorna in the Kitchen area and David who made us feel very welcome as soon as we walked in.


Sleepy Hollow Restaurant

Mallusk, Newtownabbey
17/07/2020: We booked for Sunday 12th July which was only day that suited the five of us. We were a little nervous as it was only few days opened after lockdown but the restaurant had all safety measures in place and we felt relaxed. We just love this place from the pleasant staff to the service to the presentation and of course the exceptional quality of the food. It’s fine dining at it’s best without the price tag. Because of Covid it was only just a Sunday menu which we were a bit disappointed about initially but the starters are just the same as normal menu and the Sunday menu was quite similar too. We had a mixture of starters which were delicious. 3 chose the roast beef dinner and loved it, I chose the pork which was to die for and my daughter chose the fish of the day which was sea bass and mussels... she loved it. I would highly recommend their skinny fries which r real potatoes cut in their jackets and they are delicious. We ordered to desserts to share which was more than enough not only were they presented so well but they tasted even better. So as you have read my post you can gather that we just love this little restaurant tucked away from the maddening crowd.
09/07/2020: Starters: chicken fritters and black pudding scotch egg were good, although the egg yolk was hard in the egg (not a major issue). 7/10Mains: steak sandwiches. My steak was quite tough and about a third hard fat - disappointing. My wife's salad garnish was swimming in vinegar and inedible. Chips are delicious. No one checked in on us as we ate so we didn't have the opportunity to pass on the issues. 6/10.Desserts (2× minis): sticky toffee pudding, lemon and white chocolate (base was not great), pecan and burnt orange tart. 6.5/10 overall.Service was relaxed (which we appreciated given the covid situation). Food was average with ups and downs.


Safari Grill

Massereene, Antrim
06/03/2020: We thought we would try Safari from the TripAdvisor reviews and we were very happy we did!We enjoyed chicken goujons with chips and garlic cubes, the dips were tasty too.Desserts were to die for, chocolate brownie Sundae and a biscotti cheesecake, Yum yum, we will definitely return!
28/02/2020: We have been at safari grill a few times now, I have to say the service is excellent, the staff do their best to make your visit a enjoyable one. I found the staff to go out of their way to interact with our kids and provide colouring books etc to keep them entertained. Food is very good and reasonably priced with some really good specials. I had a ribs and wings deal which was very tasty and so big I struggled to finish it. Love this venue, will be back again soon!!



Ardeevin, Ballymena
25/07/2020: We are just back from a really relaxing and great 4 night stay at Oranmore Guest house. On arrival we had a friendly socially distanced welcome from Gerard the proprietor, who showed us to our room - the Sheridan Suite, in the tastefully restored stables, separate from the main house. Gerard and his wife Fiona are very attentive, friendly, polite and professional hosts and had stocked tv our lovely room with home baking and home made jam. Also provided was bottled water, fresh fruit, cheese, breads, cereals, yoghurt and tea and coffee. We also had a fabulous cooked breakfast - best we’ve had in a long time! The room was spacious and spotlessly clean with a lovely en-suite bathroom and nice sitting area to relax and watch tv. The kitchen area had a kettle, toaster, microwave, sink and fridge. During our stay Gerard and Fiona took time to show us around the beautiful manicured grounds, where they grow their own fruit and veg for the restaurant.Whilst there I was lucky enough to get an invitation to play the local golf course however I didn’t have my clubs with me. When Gerard heard this, he even let me borrow his own clubs and trolley for the day!It’s been a while since we had such a friendly welcoming stay anywhere. Many thanks Gerard, Fiona and family!!
23/06/2020: Recently my family and I were lucky enough to sample the takeaway afternoon tea hamper from Oranmore and it was a continuation of surprises and treats. It was just as amazing as what you would have in house but with the fun of a hamper and being able to enjoy it from home. There was clearly so much thought and effort put in and it was a never ending supply of treats and surprises. I would highly recommend this and it is definitely worth every penny!!! Every bite was yummy and the hamper ended up being totally cleared. I would recommend to anyone for any occasion. High quality and class with every bite. Well done Oranmore


The Copper Kettle

Bushmills, Moyle
16/03/2020: Turned up to be told the place was full even though one table said they were leaving, sour faced short haired woman gave some excuse of re-arranging tables and turned us away, rude. Went to Mikes a couple of doors down, was excellent.....
02/03/2020: Stopped for a quick bite to eat here not expecting much but some average food. I was mistaken! The wide range of food at some a reasonable price was amazing. The decor in this little cafe has numerous copper kettles which made the experience even better. Food service was so fast and my chicken goujons were delicious. 100% would recommend eating here or even stopping here for a cup of coffee just to experience the copper kettle.
