Villa Vinci


Shimna, Down
09/12/2018: Recently booked for a birthday outing with 15 of us, including children. Great service, food delicious as always. Always a winner
11/11/2018: Arrived for lunch without booking and we were seven. Even with a lot of bookings on the book they manage to sit all of us together. Very nice. The menu have so many things that was difficult to choose. Kids when for pizza and Bolognese. They serve them first at our request, and it looks really good. For starter we order Fromagi Friti (fried cheese). Very good, just “ All dente”. The cheese was melting properly and the onion caramelise was great.

The Smugglers Table


Killyleagh, Down
16/12/2018: Visited as a party of 7. Each meal was well presented and tasted even better. The service was excellent. Really good afternoon and great value. Will return.
20/11/2018: Simple decor, decent service, range of food to suit most tastes, beautifully cooked. Only comment would be that no one asked if we wanted more drinks, but that saved us some money! Nice touch - when head barman noticed we had ordered 3 different gins, he came thru to the restaurant with a hot gin for us to try.

Vanilla Restaurant


Shimna, Down
14/12/2018: Was here during the week while staying in the Slieve Donard. Had booked ahead for the early bird Christmas Dinner although restaurant empty when we arrived at 6.45- it was a rough and windy night outside. The 2 staff on duty were efficient and welcoming with food and drinks menus. I had the squid and beef starter which was absolutely fantastic and my wife loved her Asian spring rolls. She had the Turkey dinner which again she loved and I had the beef cheeks. Both dishes beautifully presented but the only issue was that the beef was very salty and over seasoned- no condiments are on the table to do your own seasoning. The meat was lovely and tender but was overpowered by the salt. I did mention to our waitress towards the end just to clarify. I finished with a nice pana cotta and coffee and with a nice bottle of red it was exceptional value. Just a slight pity about the meat but this is a lovely place well with a visit.
21/11/2018: It’s been a while since I ate here but it’s still as good as ever,the food is delicious and staff are always helpful

Doc's Fish and Chips


Shimna, Down
02/11/2018: To be fair it was Halloween and extremely busy and I felt that had a knock on effect to the quality of food and service. Was the food bad ?? Def not however I expected a we bit better. The service was slowish but no problem with that at all as the staff were working there butts off. Like most places that are popular it's hard to provide top top quality all the time. Docs is clean and has an attractive menu but the quality given to us on the night wasn't the best. However I do recommend docs and will have no problem returning what so ever. This was just an honest review for the night we visited sorry !!!
01/11/2018: Visit this cafe regularly, mostly good but have had a couple of bad meals. Having said that I have to commend the Manager here, he goes out of his way to ensure good customer service. On occasion when the meal wasn’t so good he gave us a discount which was really appreciated. When we do visit he looks after us very well and for that reason will continue to eat here. Top service

Aldos


Ardglass, Down
21/10/2018: We very much enjoyed our dinner with friends at this restaurant. It was my husband's birthday and they made it fun. We had fresh hake, thought it was prepared very nicely. Mussels were perfectly prepared. Fun staff. Had pavlova for dessert. Yum. Ardglass itself is a wonderful area. Highly recommended. One of it best nights in Ireland.
04/10/2018: This place is amazing. You must go here if visiting Ardglass. We travelled from Sussex to visit family. Was told to try the tornado which we did consists of fillet steak on top off toast topped with pate covered in a lovely sauce or peppercorn all the trimmings including huge onion rings to die for. Treated to this meal by our lovely family. Our next visit will definitely include an Aldo’s return. The staff are amazing and super friendly. Love it. Try it if you haven’t. The menu choice is great and will add remove and replace on request. Fabulous xx

The Cuan


Strangford, Down, <20£
15/12/2018: Forty of our walking group had a wonderful Christmas Lunch after our walk. There was a great choice in an imaginative menu. We were able to supply our choices a week before hand so the service was very swift from very friendly and helpful staff. Most important of all the food was delicious and very attractively presented. All our members were very complimentary about the food.. Some have indicated that they will bring their friends back. The Restaurant was very understanding when three members who booked were unable to attend due to illness and they did not charge for them. Altogether a great experience.
09/12/2018: Very friendly service Great advice on food and local attractions Fantastic for game of thrones fans with a great book of images taken locally with cast and crew

12/09/2018: The chef prepared us two lovely vegan salads (which came with crusty bread) on request today - one of the best meals we’ve had from a non-vegan restaurant. Really tasty and fresh with interesting flavours - you could tell lots of thought was put into them!

Enniskeen Country House Hotel and Restaurant


Shimna, Down
26/11/2018: Back to the Enniskeen while visiting family and enjoyed another lovely stay in a comfortable room with beautiful view. The service is exemplary - Eileen, Ian and their staff could not do enough for the guests, which is why different bits of our family choose to stay there when we're visiting – two years ago, a group of ten of us had a lovely stay and this time it was also great for the two of us. We had really good bar food on the first evening and dinner on the second night – the food is of a high standard, much of it locally sourced. Ian keeps a good cellar and wines are very reasonably priced. We had a lovely time and look forward to our next visit.
12/11/2018: We love the Enniskeen!! The owners and staff are amazing. So welcoming and helpful. The hotel offers delicious meals in the dining room and the bar area. The grounds are beautiful, with spectacular views into the Mournes. Comfy, beautiful bedrooms. A place to revisit often.

Morellis Ice Cream and Coffee


Donard, Down
18/09/2018: Called here on a classic car run with a dozen others after having had an evening meal in Annalong as we were aware that Morelli's had an ice cream shop in Newcastle. We were not disappointed as the business has been franchised throughout Northern Ireland and a number of us were brought up having sampled the original flavours of ice cream in the Portstewart and Portrush areas. We were well, and quickly, served in the shop with a variety of flavours bought and an odd one shared in the group. Will call again should the need arise in the Newcastle area.
17/08/2018: Traditional Italian ice cream recipe form the Morelli family, now franchised out across Northern Ireland. Various flavours of which my favourite is the vanilla which ahs won awards.

Blue Bay Cafe


Dundrum, Down, <20£
10/11/2018: The Blue Bay Cafe offered a selection of both breakfast & lunch options, which we found to be delicious & a good value. The staff was warm & welcoming, with plenty of attention to detail. Highly recommended! Located in the middle of town near the waterfront. We also applaud their work to raise money for cancer screening.
01/11/2018: Called in here today before a walk on Murlough. Fancied a nice cup of coffee and a sweet delight. Nothing available apart from one plain scone. Very disappointing as we were so looking forward to a nice afternoon treat. The toilet wasn’t clean and you have to get to it via the kitchen which I’m sure doesn’t conform to health & safety standards. Overall a disappointing experience. Have been here previously for breakfast and whilst it was very good was served on cold plates and therefore not warm. Don’t think we’ll be visiting again.
