Square bistro

Hilden, Lisburn
18/01/2018: Had lunch in the Square Bistro on Monday. I had fish & chips which were gorgeous. My friend had beef fajita and said it was lovely. Great service and atmosphere. Good value for good quality food.
13/01/2018: I simply love this restaurant. We visited on a Friday evening and the restaurant had a vibrant atmosphere. Be warned, it is very popular so it is advisable to book well in advance. The Menu offers a good variety of dishes, which all seem so nice and interesting it is difficult to make a choice!! We opted to go for a main and a dessert as we are not big eaters, and we found the portion sizes sufficient for our appetites. I can certainly recommend the Beef Fillet with Braised Ox cheek. It was so tasty and tender. My wife chose the Chicken supreme, but wanted to change the sauce. Not a problem at all. The restaurant is very flexible in this respect. Anyway needless to say we both really enjoyed our choices. For dessert my wife had the Sticky Toffee Pudding, and I had the cheeseboard, which is just the right size I think for one person. The staff are super friendly and extremely well versed. It is instantly obvious that they know their drinks and food menu inside out. In my opinion this is the top restaurant in Lisburn. It scores top marks from me for both service and food quality. We have visited many times, without ever having had a bad experience, and we will undoubtedly return again.Great job Square Bistro, and thank you for a delightful evening.

The Guillemot

Harbour, North Down, <20£
15/01/2018: I’ve been here a few times now with my husband on a Sunday afternoon and I really like it. Nice location in Bangor and very cosy inside. Cooler than your average cafe in this area but more casual than a formal restaurant and has lots of brunchy options. The food and coffee is excellent, they seem to use high quality ingredients. Friendly are staff too. I’d recommend it!
14/01/2018: A great lunch venue with a range of offerings. The home made soup and sandwich option hit the spot. Service is quick and efficient and prices are reasonable. If you want quality food in non formulaic setting this is the place to try. Lovely!

Blue Bay Cafe

Dundrum, Down, <20£
08/01/2018: Had spotted this café on TA and called in one Sunday morning with friends for brunch. The staff were really friendly, we all opted for different dishes with various tea and coffee which were topped up. We couldn't resist the raspberry and white chocolate scones so had them after our eggs. Make sure you call in for a visit.
04/01/2018: The soup of the day was Leek and Potato, it was really good but the home made wheaten bread that cam3 with it was 5* we just loved it.Don’t visit this cafe without trying the wheaten bread.It was followed by their home made cakes and scones, oh yes I would definitely recommend it.It was also friendly and efficient.Recommended

Great jones Craft & Kitchen

Shimna, Down
17/01/2018: We have had 2 great experiences recently. The steak night special is fantastic value and the food is cooked to perfection. On another occasion we had fish and it was sublime! It's a great spot and has very attentive staff.
11/01/2018: We ate here in January 2018 and had an unpleasant experience. As a veggie, eating out in Newcastle is a bit challenging but we thought we'd give Great Jones a try. The menu only had one vegetarian item (risotto) but the waitress was able to offer a few off-menu options after consulting with the chef. Dinner arrived within a reasonable time and I was a few bites in when I discovered a piece of chicken, then another and I found there was a whole chicken breast hiding under the pasta. We alerted a waitress who took it away to be replaced. Meanwhile my husband ate alone and had finished his meal when my dinner eventually arrived.Dessert was a disappointment too. The cheesecake was actually a scoop of mascarpone with some raspberry sauce and a crushed ginger biscuit with a small scoop of ice cream on the side; not what you expect when you order cheese cake.My husband's meal was good and he had no issues, but I don't think we'll be back.They were somewhat apologetic about the meat hidden in my vegetarian food, but only took one drink off the menu by way of apology. Not really enough to make up for a spoilt evening. Overall a very poor experience.

Robert Stewarts

Drumbo, Lisburn, 20-30£
09/01/2018: It had been a few months since we were here,but we were not disappointed.Great selection on menu,1st class service and food.Staff and owner were very attentive and pleasant.Highly recommend.
03/01/2018: Visited here with friends. They had been before but I hadnt. It wasnt overly busy and we got a table right away. The food was nice and well presented. Also portions were very good. I would go back again. The only negative thing I would say was the annoying wee man (maybe the owner) I dont know, but he kept hovering about the table and clearing things away as soon as we finished. I will give it another go and if this person does the same again Im afraid I would have to say something to him.

Vanilla Restaurant

Shimna, Down
17/01/2018: I've always been a huge fan of Vanilla and they've opened a wine and tapas bar upstairs this past year. I've went a couple of times now and I just wanted to write a quick review saying it is some of the best food I have probably ever had. It's so creative and beautifully executed. Granted, I wouldn't say everything on the tapas menu is easily shared and maybe wouldn't qualify as tapas but the food is still beyond delicious. If you are planning on going I would recommend booking a table well in advance as the restaurant upstairs is very very with only a few tables and then a bar to sit at. Both times I've been there I've had to sit at the bar even though we requested a table the first time, which if you are in a big group can be quite difficult to chat and share food. Apart from that, I would highly recommend Vanilla restaurant and Vanilla Wine and Tapas to everyone.
16/01/2018: We visited for the first time on Saturday night. This is a very nice restaurant with good food. The menu selection is not very big which is a plus as the food appeared to be fresh. We only had a main course as the starters did not appeal to us. The steak was very nice, well cooked and the monk fish was also good. The side selection was not great with there being no baby boiled potatoes as an option. The waitress that served us was lovely but we were not so impressed with the waiter with glasses as we did not find him so accomodating. My partner ws not loving how close the tables are as you are practically sitting on top of the people to either side and have no choice but to hear their conversation so if you like your space this may not be the restaurant for you.I do hope to come back and try the Tapas. I would recommend this restaurant, we did have a lovely night.

Villa Vinci

Shimna, Down
18/01/2018: WoW What a place to eat food. It was outstanding from start to finish this place is top notch. My wife and I were greeted as we entered and taken to our table. Ervin was our host that evening was 1st class. His attention to detail was one the money. Our glasses where never empty and the food was no waiting time at alll. Also the restaurant was full I eat carbonara and the wife eat arrabiata. It was delicious. The portion sizes and the bill was really good value for money. So so we where staying in the Slieve Donard that we went for lunch back in Villa Vinci the next day. Thanks again to Ervin and his staff we will be back
17/01/2018: great friendly staff very helpful with menus with great quality food . we had steaks and they were pristine. well worth a visit

Doc's Fish and Chips

Shimna, Down
17/01/2018: We ate here on two occasions over a stay at the Slieve Donard, the first evening it was very quiet and the food and service was amazing! On the saturday evening the restaurant was busier, with more staff on, the waiter who served us was very rushed and appeared flustered, the food was not as good as had been on the thursday. Overall not a bad place to eat, just a bit hit and miss.
04/01/2018: Really good fish and chips , quite a varied menu but generally fish and chips are the main menu so that’s what we went for.We were not to be disappointed, it was really good.When you go to the seaside all that sea air lends itself to the taste of fish and chips so you will not be disappointed, give it a try.

Donegans

Harbour, North Down
09/01/2018: The staff are friendly attentive and kind my mum dad and daughter love it portions are large and they don't mind wrapping the left overs so you can take them home I always come home full and happy the quality of food is high as well it's the whole family's favorite place
07/01/2018: I’d guess Donegans , and it’s staff , and several dishes have become SeaSide institutions in Bangor . Having been with family , friends , business colleagues for many years , Ivan & Lyn and the team never fail to come up with the perfect blend of cheery efficient service , mixed with some quick banter . Cosy warm and quaint environment... good value , proper food , tasty and plenty of it .. never let down . This team all over are fabulous .(kitchen staff stayed v late when we arrived as they were closing , for Christmas .. they refused to turn us away and stayed a full 2 hours more- where else would you get that ? .. They’ve a full and varied menu , and nothing is too much trouble .. thanks a million for looking after to Paul Gray and the kitchen team , Lyn and Ivan with alll the floor team .. Brilliant spot ., David (and all who’ve been with me on those occasions)

Katch 27

Kircubbin, Ards
02/01/2018: when i visited in october we took my old mother out to this place again on my sisters recommendation. The food was nice , just nice, well presented and good helpings. The place was not best suited for wheel chair use but the staff were extremely helpful to make it work. good plain food served in a very modern way and plenty of it. we all went for soup and a sandwich. apart from my son who nailed a large gourmet burger. all very happy with service and nice presentation of the food. The enu is quite limited so dont expect an array of fancy dishes but what they do have is unfussy food prepared very well.
11/12/2017: The quality of produce, the excellent skill of the chefs and menu are first class. Katch 27 is the best eatery in the lower Ards and is also now licensed. This is a restaurant t that is great for breakfast and casual lunch and also as a smart finer restaurant by evening. I fine out quite alot and have no hesitation in recommending even if it means a drive down the peninsula.

Coast

Holywood Priory, North Down, 30-45£
15/01/2018: Coast deserves to be at the top of the list for Holywood. The place is really special. The staff are great, and the food is delicious. We shared the duck as a starter, then went our separate ways at the main courses. Everyone was happy - all meals were excellent, and delicious. I loved the lamb shank.
08/01/2018: Visited Coast as a birthday treat, cosy restaurant, great choice of food on menu but the one thing that made this restaurant apart from the delicious food was the very friendly staff, who I now realise are family business, we were made feel welcome from the minute we stepped in. Will definitely be back

Colin's Hot Food

Rathgael, North Down
06/12/2017: Well Colin's has been about for at least 30 years and I remember it as a young girl. On returning to live in Bangor I was shocked to see it still open..... one fish supper and onion rings later, I know why!! Still absolutely fabulous for a good old "fish supper" with lots of salt and vinegar congratulations on staying consistent and great to be back
14/11/2017: Dropped in on way back home - prices are good and the food is well prepared and unlike others they do give you a good few chips along with the dish you have ordered. It always has folk in it and that, to me, is a great sign!

Harbour and Company

Donaghadee North, Ards
14/01/2018: We had a very good evening meal here as a party of 6, we ordered a mixture of steaks, chicken and fish. Sides are ordered separately to the main element of the meal and there is a wide selection of various vegetable some prepared in unusual ways, peppers with roast onions were lovely but the roasted broccoli with salsa Verdi was a step to far for my palate but that said the meal overall was a delight. Deserts here are well worth finding space for; in my case the salted caramel and chocolate tart was superb. I would very much recommend eating here and it’s worth investigating the range of hot and cold side dishes Service is friendly and efficient and I can well understand why our hosts are regulars. Recommended
08/01/2018: Second time here and wasn't disappointed. Complete taste explosion.....Penang chicken was excellent ... also sea bass cooked to perfection... chose different sides of peppers and asparagus which were delicious. Beautiful views even at night.Service was perfect... looking forward to going back....

The Boathouse Restaurant

Harbour, North Down
09/01/2018: The Boat House has changed little since it was taken over from the original owners. It still delivers top-class fine dining in a cosy dining space. Serving staff are always very attentive and knowledgeable. If you choose the wine tasting, you will make your meal even more of a special occasion.
18/12/2017: Seven us ladies enjoyed wonderful food here.Very friendly staff who certainly have a great knowledge of where the food is sourced.Beautiful little resturant.With plenty of parking beside it.
