Motherland Spice

Saltcoats and Stevenston, North Ayrshire
01/11/2018: We were visiting from Yorkshire and we found this little gem. The food is fantastic and as we have been eating curries for 50yrs know a good one. The staff cannot do enough to please and all in all a really good night out ... we visit around there a lot so cannot wait for my next delicious meal there
30/10/2018: We go here regulary as a couple but also with friends and family. The menu offers a great choice and we have yet to be disappointed with anything we have ordered. They do all they can to please you. For example my husband likes Indian food very hot, so they make his hotter than anything on the menu. Everything is done with a smile!! Great wee comfortable, relaxed and friendly restraunt.


The Blair

Annick, East Ayrshire
18/12/2018: Great atmosphere on entry and throughout. Staff were friendly, efficient and professional. The Service was speedy and the food delicious, portions generous and well presented. What can I say? Exceeded expectation on all fronts.
12/12/2018: Once again the family had dinner at the Blair. Staff were great as my mum is 91 yrs of age and accomodated a smaller portion for her. The festive decorations just added to an enjoyable time too..


The Waterfront

Ayr West, South Ayrshire
06/11/2018: Really good choice of drinks including soft eg cucumber tonic etc Good veggie options, fish and meat Lovely staff , was easy to park on a Monday evening but otherwise could be a walk Reasonable prices
03/11/2018: Excellent restaurant with themed bar on the adjacent room. Our visit was a jazz evening. The meals were top quality . Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Outside dining overlooking the waterfront.


Little Rock

Ardrossan and Arran, North Ayrshire
22/11/2018: Fabulous cafe on the seafront. They cater for people with allergies & have a wide variety of choices. They also have a pet's corner for those with dogs. Quite a few dog owners were in when we visited. Reasonable prices too.
11/11/2018: We ate lunch here most days while in Arran. Tasty soups, and a good general cafe menu available. Great portion sizes and food was fresh. Service was excellent. If you want to guarantee a no frills, quality lunch with lots of choice definitely give Little Rock a try.


Small talk

Irvine West, North Ayrshire
30/11/2018: My first visit to this charming cafe/restaurant yesterday We picked a very busy time Short wait to be seated and served from a fairly extensive menu Cauliflower cream soup was delicious and piping hot! Sandwich and tea also. All "passing food" looked so appetising Quick friendly service Took hubby some home baking home
05/10/2018: This is a favourite spot for lunch or coffee and cake. The extensive menu is well priced and the homemade cakes are to die for. I defy anyone to walk past the display and not try one. Staff are great and always make time to chat to customers. Our two year old granddaughter is always made welcome and given some bricks to play with while waiting for lunch. Children’s menu is excellent too. Consistently good.



Rutherglen Central and North, South Lanarkshire, <20£
18/12/2018: My aunt has been raving about this restaurant for years so we booked for 1pm today (19/12/18) for a lunch before Christmas. Staff were lovely on arrival but that is where the positives finish. My husband ordered steak pie from the main menu but when the order got to the kitchen we were told it was not available. I ordered Risotto from the Christmas menu but was also advised that wasn't available. The Christmas menu was on offer at 2 courses for 13.50 and three courses for 14.95. My aunt ordered a gammon main and asked for hand cut chips instead of mash, I ordered the lamb and also asked for hand cut chips. The server came back to tell us there were no hand cut chips but we could have roast potatoes which we were happy to order. When our two meals arrived they both had mash potatoes....we reminded the server that we had asked for roast potatoes so she took the meals back to the kitchen and returned with the meats and veg and said the roast potatoes had been 'put on'. They duly arrived and guess what they were not home cooked but from frozen. We then ordered two aunt had only one course at this point and I had two. My husband didn't want a dessert. The order went to the kitchen at 14.15 and a few minutes later the server came back to the table to say we couldn't get desserts as they were closing (the stated closing time is 14:30). My aunt said to the server that she was very disappointed in the meal and felt really bad as she had been raving about the restaurant which is the only reason we were there. The server sent over a gentleman who may be the owner and he apologised but said they were closing so we had to leave. My aunt explained she had only had one course from the two course menu so that was relayed back to the kitchen and they agreedwe could have our deserts but to be honest by that time I was so angry that I just wanted to leave. We asked for the deserts to be put into containers for us to take away only to be told that they had run out of containers. After a bit of discussions they agreed to put the deserts into tin foil. While we were waiting for the take away deserts we were presented with the bill which had no reduction for the inconvenience or the obvious distress caused to my aunt. I have never ever been in a restaurant which takes a desert order then after taking the order to the kitchen tells you that you cannot have the deserts as they were closing....especially as it wasn't at the stated closing time of 2:30. I would not advise anyone to ever go to this restaurant.
13/12/2018: Stopped here for lunch, had the Haggis. Really nice, cooked perfectly. Surprisingly filling Staff are very friendly and overall a great service


Yasmins Fine Indian Cuisine

Girvan and South Carrick, South Ayrshire
16/12/2018: One of the best indian dishes we ever tried. We had a wonderful dinner. Very well cooked, delicious flavours. Go and you won't regret it!
12/12/2018: Great food and friendly service, authentic and tasty well sized portions. Quite old school but very well prepared. Enjoyed.



Irvine West, North Ayrshire, 20-30£
12/11/2018: Took visiting friends here for dinner as we’ve eaten here many times before and are never been disappointed. Delicious as always, very busy but no problem with service, competent and friendly staff. Calamari starter was delicious, light and crispy and sea bass over rice too.
06/11/2018: Really friendly staff, always willing to help. good food at a great price Old fashioned decor, with a friendly atmosphere


Kirkmichael Arms

Maybole, North Carrick and Coylton, South Ayrshire
16/12/2018: Me and my partner stopped in here as we were passing by the area. The food was really good and it came quite quick but it was let down by the women who served us as she was not very helpful. I asked about the special and her reply was " it's just what it says". I think that's just rude. Although she tried to be polite by saying thank you, come again etc, the usual waitress chat she did not sound like she even wanted us to be there. If the service was good I would of gave it 5 stars, I will be back to try again.
12/12/2018: Had lunch there yesterday, cannot fault the service or food. My friend and I had the pheasant, it was delicious, beautifully presented, good portions.


Saffy's Cafe Bar & Brasserie

Ayr West, South Ayrshire, 20-30£
12/11/2018: Went to Saffy's on Sunday. This is the first time we had been and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The staff were very efficient and friendly and all 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It was very quiet on Sunday so we had to make our own atmosphere, which we did, and the staff were great, they brought out a birthday cake and sang "Happy Birthday" to my son-in-law. Would definitely recommend it and will be back soon.
07/11/2018: Everything I have in this restaurant tastes lovely. The food is great and the atmosphere is great also.


Dowhill Country Fayre

Maybole, North Carrick and Coylton, South Ayrshire, <20£
16/12/2018: Stopped in with my parents and son today for a look around and a bite to eat. Lovely homemade soup, beautiful sandwich and great chunky chips. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Toilets were immaculate. Decor was tasteful. The cakes looked delicious, unfortunately we didn't have room left to sample them. We will definitely be back.
12/12/2018: Christmas party night . What can I say best value best party night. Staff wonderful make you feel like a princess. Second year there spoilt now. For 2019


Minishant Inn Restaurant

Maybole, North Carrick and Coylton, South Ayrshire
30/10/2018: diverted by roadworks and ready for breakfast, arrived in Minishant Inn, often said "we must go in there" but never did. Well, thank you roadworks! Best vegetarian breakfast I have ever had. Not an overabundance of food on the plate but really nicely plated. Everything one might have wanted and all of first rate quality in terms of cooking and sourcing. Well served by friendly, bright and helpful waiter. Put it all together and this was excellent!
14/10/2018: My wife and I visited this lovely Restaurant for the first time on Sunday and will definitely be back. I often pass the Restaurant whilst working and notice a lot of cars parked outside and people going in and out so on Sunday we decided to go in whilst on our way to Culzean Castle, we were not disappointed. The food was delicious the staff very smart and pleasant and prices very reasonable too. We will definitely be back just wish we had been sooner.


Wildings Hotel and Restaurant

Maybole, North Carrick and Coylton, South Ayrshire, 20-30£
18/12/2018: Sadly this visit was very disappointing. We went with a big group and thought it would be a lovely Christmas lunch as we have been many times before and the food has always been great. We had to go to the bar to order drinks, as no one asked us. I was told that if I wanted pudding it had to be ordered at the start of the meal or I couldn’t have any. I went without. My husband ordered off the regular menu which is what I should have done. But I thought its Wilding’s they will do a great turkey dinner. But No! its was kind of sad instead of freshly carved turkey – it was 3 slices of Turkey roll and the sadist stuffing ever very generous portions but what a disappointment and bread sauce without any flavour.
18/12/2018: We were there as part of large group and the service was still mediocre. The food was not as good as expected and if you didn't order the full 3 courses at the beginning, you couldn't order a sweet as the waiter told us that,as it was a large group, we couldn't order after the main if we felt we could manage a sweet. What would happen if the restaurant was really busy on a normal day? Would the same principle apply? Still not my favourite place to eat.


La Vigna

Clydesdale North, South Lanarkshire
01/12/2018: Excellent meal .3 courses £16.95. First class service,in pleasant surroundings. Will definitely repeat.
07/11/2018: Their pre theatre menu is a great value for money. Never been disappointed . If you are looking for some real nice but different Italian meal this the pace to try.


The Secret Garden

Ayr West, South Ayrshire
28/11/2018: I often think that some of the nicest places we visit are pure accidents. We had pulled off the main road into Ayr following a "Coast" sign and we parked up at a small estuary to do a spot of birdwatching (very good).
25/11/2018: Went for a cycle from Prestwick to Ayr and stopped in this lovely wee place for a coffee. Unfortunately I forgot to bring my money, however the owner very kindly gave us a coffee and wasn't interested in payment. On returning to the car I drove to the shop to pay for the coffee's.... I would very much recommend this place and thank them for kindly giving us a coffee without looking for payment! genuine hard working people. Thanks again!
