We were driving through on our way to the Rope Bridge but first needed lunch. We saw tour buses unloading at the place across the street, so that quickly lost our interest. We opted to stop at this place based on reviews. From the moment...More

A good restaurant for a good dinner in Ballintoy. The attendant was very kind when proposing to us a steamed cod (instead of fried) with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. Warm and cozy atmosphere, at least when we visited the restaurant.

Yummy! Great for pick up to eat out at picnic tables or grab and go. Good sandwiches, crisps, drinks etc. Hot and cold beverages. Especially enjoyed the spicy ginger beer.

I think that they cater more for coach parties. There is an extensive buffet for 9.95. No sandwiches, but you can buy a portion of potato wedges with bacon and cheese for 3.95 and they are enough for two people.

We have clearly been misled by our travel agency that has promised that "this restaurant has commited to source the vast majority of its ingredients from local producers". To make a long story short, it is very very far from being true. We probably wouldn't...More

Easy place to find coming or going to Carrick-a-Rede bridge. I'd say avoid it. Cozy fire place in the restaurant burning peat, beautiful, until they add the plastic carcinogens {pop bottles}, at least the windows were open when the place filled up with a wee...More
