We dropped in early one evening and had a meal at the bar. Enjoyed a convivial atmosphere and decent pub food. Our server, Sandra, was the best server we had during our three nights in Ballycastle—she was efficient, fast, and friendly!

We stayed in a holiday let up the road from this restaurant, it was recommended to us by the owners and we are so glad we came as it was beautiful!! they have a lovely lounge out the back and the specials were divine. Massive portions and reasonably priced. Went back twice on that trip!

I've been at the Diamond Bar for dinner in september. I've ordered a Seafood Chowder, and it was the best that I've ever tasted in Ireland. I've also ordered a Brownie, and it was good, but nothing special, so I suggest you to try something else. It happened that the waitress went wrong and our bill was 20 pounds higher,... More

We had a very pleasant afternoon at the Diamond Bar. Charlie, the owner, Suzie and Charlie's two sons were warm and friendly, as well as the cheerful and friendly patrons. I ordered the goat cheese salad and it was like a gourmet meal. Outstanding service, food and atmosphere.
