Tartine Restaurant at The Distillers Arms

Bushmills, Moyle, 30-45£
04/03/2019: Great value early bird menu that has something to appeal to most palates. All meals well cooked and presented beautifully, glass of wine/small beer included too! Restaurant is buzzily busy and I would strongly recommend that you book in advance.
03/03/2019: If you are in the North Coast area, this restaurant needs to be on your to do list. Lots of local, fresh food, cooked and presented at the highest level. The menu is varied and influenced by the local area - lots of great seafood option. Great drinks menu too with plenty of unique Gins. Hands down the best meal I've had out in a long time. The steak was fantastic, cooked to perfection. Dessert was delicious and my cocktail perfect. Definitely will be back here.


The Scenic Inn

Stranocum, Ballymoney
10/11/2018: Well what can I say, Fri 09 Nov was an absolute wash out with rain but to cheer ourselves up we went to the Scenic Inn for Lunch! As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a very warm welcome as always! Fire so cosy and Stephen is just fabulous! Full of Craic and so attentive! Had the most beautiful lunch. Definitely recommend the chicken strippers. Gorg! The fry is also a must! The cheesecake is outstanding and not heavy! Snickers is my favourite but the raspberry ruffle is close behind! Love this place so much!! Lolv Rob and Claire. Ps Pop's was raging we went without her??? Xxx
07/11/2018: this small petite restaurant/bar is really excellent. found it by chance and have been back three times. the food is great the staff are as friendly and attentive as we have ever experienced. if you want to eat especially on a sunday it is essential that you book in advance because of its popularity and limited space


ocho tapas bistro

Royal Portrush, Coleraine
09/02/2019: Just dined in Ocho Tapas Bistro - a change from the usual Ramore group of restaurants in Portrush and to be honest a welcome change.
26/01/2019: I didn’t expect to get a table having booked so last minute but I’m delighted they managed to fit us in! It’s the best in Portrush! The menu is so varied (great for vegetarians too!) that everyone will enjoy. Staff were lovely, service was excellent and the restaurant itself is warm and relaxed. I will definitely come back


Ownies Bar

Killycrot, Carrickfergus, <20£
13/03/2019: Great food awesome service class that there Was a lift to the upstairs as we had are grandmother who is Ninty six and this made getting upstairs a lot easier
08/03/2019: My uncle has always lived in Carrickfergus so knows the eateries there inside out and when staying with him, I wanted to treat him to lunch. Without hesitation he said Ownies. Ownies is an independent pub, cozy with open fires and lovely atmosphere. Mum had previously eaten there with my uncle and had loved the seafood chowder (which is their signature dish). I have dietary requirements so phoned the previous day to see if it was possible to make some amendments and they said everything is cooked fresh to order so there would be no problem (also assured me that people make requests like that all the time and I shouldn’t feel that I was being difficult (which sometimes happens) and they are more than happy to cater for anything). So I was able to have a wonderful chowder with vegan cheese and soya milk that honestly wouldn’t have known the swaps and my uncle had the sea bass with champ (on the menu had other potatoes but they are really happy to swap sides if you prefer). Overall was a wonderful experience and we were chatting away with the table next to us who were clearly enjoying the wonderful food and atmosphere too. Excellent food, reasonably priced oh, and good Guinness, ales, wines too!


Square View Restaurant

Woodburn, Carrickfergus
23/02/2019: Excellent meal and really great value. Ox cheeks were superb! Service was good as usual. Recommended.
10/02/2019: Vame for breakfast but it stopped at 11.30.. Had a Sunday dinner instead.. It was great, as always.. Would highly recommend..


Sleepy Hollow Restaurant

Mallusk, Newtownabbey
13/03/2019: Excellent meal. Presentation of food was first Clara. Staff were welcoming helpful and attentive. We went for Early meal and great choices.
26/02/2019: Don't come here if you are looking for a quick turn-round meal. This is where you come to relax, take your time and enjoy beautifully freshly cooked meals.


Harbour bar

Royal Portrush, Coleraine
27/01/2019: Never miss a chance to call in for a Guinness or two and see the delightful Willie, the best bar man in Europe. His wit and banter always make our night. It may be a small bar but packed with atmosphere and oh so friendly. Katrina was singing in the corner and belted our some fantastic tunes, all in all a cracking night as usual. Can’t wait to go back....
26/01/2019: We had a great meal in the restaurant and went into the bar for a night cap before home. Unfortunately one of our party took ill. The staff were absolutely tremendous they could not do enough to help in a trying situation. The bar and door staff knew exactly what they were doing and have obviously been well trained to deal with all situations. They are an absolute credit to the bar, you will be in safe hands there - thanks guys.


The Red Door Tea Room

Kinbane, Moyle
13/11/2018: The place itself is very cute and charming. The staff was friendly. We couldn't quite figure out if it was seat yourself or not. We kept getting weird looks from people. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. A great little stop on the way from one activity to the other. Unfortunately, they were out of the stew when we arrived.
09/11/2018: Called in on a wet Saturday afternoon and overall pretty good and unique quirky venue. Main complaint is the high prices so poor value for money. Bill was over £50 for 3 children and 4 adults. It was just soup, tea and children’s sandwich platters and couple slices of cake. Decent place but pricing is a deterrent



Glenaan, Moyle
12/02/2019: Been here a couple of times, great freshly caught seafood, scallops and sea bass were to die for! Great atmosphere with beautiful open fire making for a very cosy restaurant.
05/02/2019: Quick lunch stop by at Cushendall during our road trip! We’re from Portugal and we are experiencing new adventures in our vacation time. This was the best one, speaking of local food. Thank you so much for this, we highly recommend this restaurant!


Ardtara Country House Hotel Restaurant

Upperlands, Magherafelt
11/03/2019: We recently visited Ardtara restaurant for a six course dinner with matching wines for each course. A glass of prosecco with a hint of limoncello started the evening off. Followed at nicely spaced intervals by six delicious courses. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this evening for a lovely treat and we hope to return again in the very near future.
03/01/2019: We had been meaning to try Ardtara House on many occasions & wish we hadn't waited so long. We arrived and we were greeted by Joao, who kindly took us to the bar area, we ordered our drinks and took in the beautiful traditional surroundings of the house.


McConnells bar Doagh

Doagh, Newtownabbey, >100£
19/01/2019: Located in the tiny village of Doagh, just 2 miles from Ballyclare, this small and friendly country styled pub is well worth a visit.
04/01/2019: My wife and mother-in-law come here for lunch most Saturdays because the food is so good - sometimes they even let me come as well!! The food is excellent quality, offering a very good portion of home cooked food with a reasonable range of dishes. The staff are very friendly and little requests are met with an attitude: "of course we can do that!" - eg: Can I have the gravy served separately? This is an excellent place in which to have Ulster pub grub of the highest quality.


The Side Door Bistro Restaurant

Hightown, Newtownabbey
02/02/2019: Having not visited The Side Door in a few years, we organised a meal here last night. Food was excellent, freshly cooked to order, and generous portion sizes. The place was busy, and a great buzz about it. Its byo too, and no corkage charge, so another added bonus. My girlfriends who hasn't eaten here before were really impressed, and we all plan to return again soon with our families. Special mention to Ryan, who kept us in banter the whole evening!
22/12/2018: Called in for lunch after a recommendation. Good decision it was too. Food freshly cooked (propper delicious freshly battered gougons, not the preprepared type!) good portions, quick service and friendly staff. Good value into the bargain. What's not to like?! Will be back!!


Crosskeys Inn

Grange, Ballymena
22/11/2018: Live music, great Guinness, very nice and welcoming service. We'll come back next year and we recommend this family owned and run pub to everyone .
04/11/2018: Stopped in here on our way to the Giants Causeway from Dublin, was later on a Sunday night so not much going on... fire to ourselves and the bartender showing us the pub and hearing about the history, ghost stories included (perfect for Halloween). Just by chance we met the actual thatcher for the roof and he told us stories about Ireland, the pub, his experiences... for an improvised stop and looking back on our trip, it was one of the most genuine and amazing experiences. Wonderful spot and wonderful people.


Mermaid Kitchen and Bar

Royal Portrush, Coleraine
31/01/2019: Visited Mermaid Kitchen & Bar for a family lunch on Sunday 16th December. Upon arrival at 1pm the restaurant was fairly empty but didn't take long to fill up. The food was simply delicious. I had the goat's cheese and beetroot salad and would agree with opinions from other reviewers that the excess quantity of goat's cheese imbalances the dish. I ordered that Sunday's special of 12hr braised beef which was so tender and delicious. Others enjoyed the roast chicken breast and the seafood Thermidore.
27/01/2019: Booked a table but arrived 20 mins earlier and got shown straight in. Menu was varied and extensive. Food arrived very well presented and delicious-highly recommend! Plus side is no kids allowed!


indian ocean

Killycrot, Carrickfergus
13/03/2019: Not good experience. The Behavior of staff is not friendly. Not good taste. If you are 6 peoples then they force you to order minimum 6 main course dishes irrespective of whether you need so much food or not. we ordered and then we had to waste half of the remaining food.
13/03/2019: Amazing food, friendly staff and great decor. Been coming here regularly for about one year now and have to say it is one of my favourite restaurants in Northern Ireland.
