15/05/2019: First visit for lunch in years I would visit for breakfast for the frys and can not fault the frys are very good, however lunch today although was nice enough didn't feel it was good value I had a wrap cut into two small halves a tiny poke of chips, hubby had honey chilli chicken side of chips he was still hungry afterwards for the price maybe full portion size would be nice, however as I say nice enough food but could get a meal elsewhere for similar prices and feel full afterwards lol.

Fratelli


Galgorm, Ballymena
03/06/2019: Just had birthday dinner with my wife and two children. Well quarters of salad tomatoes on top of a marguerite pizza isn’t good. Vine tomatoes yes. Dried up beef on my pizza...couldn’t find or taste Gorgonzola cheese. Daughters pizza drowned in shop bought sticky glaze (I think). Wife’s sea bass was as she put it perhaps several days old. Serious waste of money. When we left half our food the waiter asked would we like a box for the leftovers? I thought actually the box would have tasted better than the food. I get it restaurants can have an off meal but all four? Got to raise the game guys!!
03/06/2019: Staff explained how the meal deal worked starters mains & sweets. Wine list was very comprehensive also wide selections of Gins. Waitresses were great .

Toast

23/04/2019: I had the homemade pancake stack and it was the best I have ever had. The food was amazing, great taste and a great value price to match. The staff are always really friendly here, will be recommending Toast as much as I can!!!
06/01/2019: This is one of the best things to happen to Cullybackey.... it’s very own eating establishment !! And boy oh boy, did we get a good one!! The staff are great and are so accommodating and always come round with the teapot for a top up.

The Grouse


Castle Demesne, Ballymena, <20£
26/05/2019: Really appreciated the dinner here. Reached the restaurant pretty late yet the kitchen was still willing to prepare the food with a lot of effort put in. First time trying monkfish and felt that it was grilled super well not to mention the chicken peri peri with the “fried onion rings” on top, absolutely delicious! Down point was the fries which my friends and I didn’t really liked it.
08/05/2019: Went there with family. Service was excellent so polite and checked occasionally that all was ok. Also as I am vegetarian they are one of the few restaurants that has a excellent menu

Go Sun Chinese Restaurant


Castle Demesne, Ballymena, >100£
24/03/2019: Hadn’t been here for a few years so decided to visit recently. It has limited space. The meal was excellent and service was very efficient. It’s not a spot for a quiet romantic dinner but I would recommend it for price, quality and service. The only downside was the fact that the main floor was very slippy , hopefully this has been sorted.
20/03/2019: This is the longest established Chineese Resturant in Ballymena. The food remains good as is the service. Maybe the interior would benefit from a little enhancement although would make no changes to the quality on offer.. Its nice to speak with a Chineese girl with a local dialect

The Blackstone


Castle Demesne, Ballymena
10/05/2019: The dining "area" is in the corner of a busy public bar which it has to be said is fairly run down/grotty. We almost turned on our heel when we saw the 3/5 scores on the doors which isn't usually a good sign. Bizarrely the menu is quite ambitious with some very odd/pretentious combinations. Don't go if you like vegetables as out of two meat based main courses there wasn't a green/coloured vegetable in sight. A strange fascination with pureeing everything was also apparent. The food when it arrived was cold/congealed. A real disappointment. We will not be back.
08/05/2019: I'll be honest, when we pulled up outside, I did not have very high hopes, as the area is not much to look at. Inside, I thought it seemed more of a pub environment and was not expecting such a high standard of cuisine. Amazing choice. A couple of us had steaks - cooked to perfection. Beautiful wines and desserts. Great choice of food. Staff friendly and attentive. It was the best place we visited on our holiday in Ireland. It was such good value too. I actually would have been prepared to pay more for such outstanding quality. Keep it up, it's an excellent place.

Galgorm Resort & Spa


Galgorm, Ballymena
12/06/2019: Gillies bar is ideally located for people staying in the Galgorm. The food was lovely and a nice relaxed atmosphere and live music only add to the overall experience.
03/06/2019: We ate here recently as we stayed in the hotel & the restaurant was closed. Gillies is an overpriced poor eating establishment. The food was way below par. The salt & chilli chicken had neither a taste of salt or chicken & the coating/batter was not nice. The prices are ridiculous & do not in any way reflect the quality of the food that is served. I don’t mind paying for good quality fresh food but that’s not what you get here. My advice if you’re staying in Galgorm hotel & spa find somewhere else to eat.

The Rose Cafe


Portglenone, Ballymena
27/05/2019: Very enjoyable breakfast. Will definitely be back. Any chance off a bigger teapot for one person. Newspapers a welcome touch.
05/05/2019: I was staying overnight in Portglenone with a crowd of college friends when we stopped off here for lunch. Service was fabulous and the staff were super friendly. Food was great and all very reasonably priced. We liked it so much we came back for breakfast the next morning. Great selection and fantastic service.

The Khayber


Galgorm, Ballymena
23/04/2019: We made it just as the restaurant was closing in the afternoon - but the manager very kindly stayed to serve us - as my dad really craved some spicy food! And thank heavens because the meal was delicious. The right level of spice and flavours. Highly recommend this place. Very good value for money too.
15/03/2019: We have eaten here twice in a fortnight for 2 birthdays and everything was excellent a bit on the pricey side though £48 for 2 starters and 2 meals is a bit steep

Wild Duck Inn


Portglenone, Ballymena
27/05/2019: Bank Holiday Monday. First off I got the impression that the staff were more interested in their friends/staff who were dining. Nice meal but the CARROTS were atrocious. Veriousely overcooked. I wondered were they the left over from Sunday. Nice meal but room for better, fresher veg.
25/05/2019: We had our wedding reception at the wild duck inn on Saturday 18th May and it was absolutely perfect from start to finish.

Rococo


Castle Demesne, Ballymena
05/04/2019: There were 4 of us on a road trip around the island,we were gettin hungry so we pulled into this little village and found this place right downtown. We all had something different,all was good. Just remember you are in the UK and pounds are needed for parking,not Euros !!!
17/03/2019: Service was friendly and welcoming. Decor is a bit eclectic and not bistro style.I didn’t have a starter but I wasn’t disappointed with main course and dessert. I would definitely come back again as it offers good food in a comfortable setting.
