Chef and Manager


Central, Ards
13/10/2020: I had resolved to not write any more reviews about the Chef and Manager because it is so consistently excellent. Called with my wife today and ate from the early bird menu. Soup for me and pate for my wife for starters and then both of us had cod for main; all delicious. Then couldn’t resist the dessert menu so one rice pudding and two spoons. What an absolute delight and as much as I could do not to order the same again. What a charming and special place this is!!!
09/10/2020: My wife and I visited the Chef and Manager restaurant on Saturday 3rd October. I can confirm that social distancing and mask wearing by staff was observed throughout our visit. In relation to the service the staff were able to balance between being attentive, but not hovering over you. My wife had Lasagne, with a salad and garlic bread. Although not a pasta fan myself the pasta however looked pretty good and was not swinning in sauce. I had a meduim rare Ribeye steak with chips, sauted onions, mushrooms with garlic butter. It was a good sized steak which was cooked to my request. At around about £50, which included a soft drink, beer and a glass of wine, this, in my view, represented good value for money. We will certainly be visting the Chef and Manager again in the near future.

Tuk Tuk Asian Bistro


Bradshaw's Brae, Ards
29/09/2020: I wanted to take the time to write about the exceptional service we received in Tuk Tuk newtownards on Saturday night. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we felt safe in the current situation. Temperatures checked upon arrival and details noted. I am quite picky with my food and it was no bother at all to the lovely waitress, she made healthy suggestions and advised me to choose the most amazing chicken noodle dish that had an omelette over the top! Unreal!!! She was funny, and put up with four tipsy customers who had not been out in a very long time! Hats off to the team, amazing service, with the perfect staff! Cannot wait to go back. Perfect night out for us as young parents. Thank you
28/09/2020: After phoning at 5.00 on the of chance of getting a table, they were able to accommodate the 2 of us at 7.00. Normally you can wait for a couple of weeks for a reservation. On entry they took our temperature and then showed us to our table. They gave us the menu and supplied us with a wine cooler for our wine which we brought. After a short while Kelvin took our order. A short time later our starters came. Tam yam soup and chicken satay on skewers. It looked so delicious I forgot to take a photo of it. The main course came which was duck in honey and Thai chicken Masaman curry. All food excellent in taste and presentation. It must take sometime doing the fancy designs on the veg. You can also get take away service, but they say it would be over an hour. Worth it though. They have opened a place in Bangor

Base Coffee Company


Donard, Down
22/08/2020: Thank you to Base for the free coffee to NHS staff I opted for a hot chocolate but was delighted with the free coffee for my sister. This is really a very generous gesture and much appreciated. Base is a really cool hang out spot and always busy as the coffee is great and the location along the promenade with views overlooking the seafront and shore line of the harbour are really relaxing. Staff are great very friendly so thanks again ♥️
10/08/2020: Great hot coffee...friendly service! Lovely stop to grab a coffee after a walk in the promenade. Would recommend.

Home Sweet Home


Donaghadee North, Ards
19/10/2020: My husband and I visited this tea shop with my Mum and Auntie and were very pleasantly surprised. Rhonda the owner is very friendly and made us all feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The other three opted for home made apple tart and I had home made coconut cake all of which were delicious. Tea was served in individual china teapots that rested in the china cup with saucer - all very cosy!As if that’s not enough there are also a few arts and crafts for sale so we bought 2 little sandwich trays - we will definitely be back.
10/10/2020: Lovely Rhonda makes everybody feel special. Price and quality second to none. Knows her regulars requirements

The Boathouse Restaurant


Harbour, North Down
20/09/2020: My husband and I enjoyed our first date night post lock down at the Boat House and were delighted with our choice ! The setting was beautiful the candlelit cosy cellar downstairs , the food was mouth watering & the service was wonderful too. Any nervousness at our first meal out post lockdown was put to rest when we arrived - temperatures taken , disposable menus and gel provided on counters& tables well spaced apart . We picked the a la Carte for our budget however we were served many additional courses which we hadn’t anticipated like bread to start , palate cleaners and a Pre pudding lemon curd dish . Expensive but worth it - we can’t wait for our next special occasion to book again Xx
12/09/2020: We selected the restaurant due to my wife who was here with friends and loved the place so with her birthday coming up we decided to come here and it was a good choice. We went for the 7 course dinner with the wine pairing and every course was fabulous and the wines were excellent. The staff were excellent and very knowledgeable about the dishes and wines being served. I really look forward to returning again soon.

Quite large dining areas meant diners well spread out.Nice menu of straightforward lunchtime fare.The chowder was great, a meal in itself, and the burgers were nicely done with skinny chips. The scampi on the child's menu was excellent too.Pleasant service. Recommended.

Tale of Spice


Ballyhanwood, Castlereagh, <20£
22/09/2020: Visited here as a family after looking at the menu online and the early bird offer of two courses for £16.95 seemed reasonable. This was during the “eat out to help out scheme” but when we arrived the only menu offered to us was a set choice of two courses for £22. We asked for an alternative menu but were informed this was the only one available. We had waited a while to get a table so decided to stay, plus the other establishments around the area all had long queues. The food was superb, service a little slow but it was quite busy at the time. We also heard various customers around us querying the £22 set menu. I have waited a while to write this review and I still feel conned by this visit. To add insult to injury the staff made reference to the great discount and cheap meal we had on two occasions! As before, the food was first class but if paying the standard prices then you will have an expensive night out. £45 for three rice, three meals and drinks does not reflect any type of offer whatsoever. We visited different establishments during August and this was the only one that had inflated the prices. Based on this experience we will never return.
22/08/2020: Went here with a friend just to try something different from the usual American diner fare and we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere was perfect, the service was great and the food excellent. We will definitely be back and as often as possible. Highly recommended.

The Smugglers Table


Killyleagh, Down
17/10/2020: Just had the most delicious seafood pie prepared by Roy. The curry was also amazing full of flavour without being overpowering. The only thing missing was Julie's smile and the efficient and polite staff.
19/09/2020: After a busy few weeks, we returned here for our Friday Night Dinner. Had been naturally upset I had missed the weeks of stunning Seafood Specials that had flashed up on Facebook!However, this was soon righted when I ordered Chef Roy’s Saddle of Venison special. Tender meat, flavour packed jus, beautifully cooked potato fondant, an array of local vegetables. The photograph doesn’t do it justice. I remember Julie explaining that most of the dishes are gluten free, as the chef is gluten free. That explains why the sauces/jus throughout the menu (as well as the seafood chowder) are always flavoursome - they’ll never be stiff with a gloppy flavourless roux. Meal was rounded off nicely with authentic homemade desserts & a chipper cocktail from the bar.

Tuk Tuk Bistro Too


Ballywalter, Ards
12/06/2020: Used to love this place but since covid 19 they have changed to a chinese takeaway, not vietnamese. Food was ok but priced too high for what it is now. Didn't mind paying more when it was fantastic, but just an average chinese now at a far higher cost

Great jones Craft & Kitchen


Shimna, Down
28/08/2020: This was the best food and service we’ve found in the Newcastle area. Nice, buzzy atmosphere, tasty, well-cooked food and very friendly, attentive and efficient staff. Would definitely go back if in the area.
22/08/2020: Amazing set meal. Linguine is fantastic and risotto too. We were shocked how it was great and tasteful. If you are here , THIS PLACE IS THE MUST. Cultural shock how good. Big portions, full of seafood. Thank you very much.

23/09/2020: LOVE it here!The new owners have smashed it and are so friendly. Such a beaut warm vibe, really cool place right beside the castle. The food + coffee was excellent.
