“Highlight of the trip”
Reviewed 31 May 2011

Loved this little cafe. I understand they have just started opening in the evenings and I wish them the best of luck with it. The food was good, the service friendly and the whole thing value for money. The soup was excellent, as was the vegetarian stir fry and the menu varied enough for the whole party of 6.
We went to Northern Ireland for the NW200 and got rained upon. The evening meals in this cafe cheered us up at the end of a wet day.

“Not to be Missed!”
Reviewed 5 May 2011

A family day out resulted in lunch in Ballycastle. We chose the Bay Cafe and were not dissapointed. First impressions count and the cafe was immaculate and very well presented. Welcomed by staff who were all wearing the same uniform and looked and performed with great customer service.

The menu was varied and catered for all tastes and with very reasonable prices. The welcome, the service and most importantly the food was excellent and the cafe was very busy which tells its own story.

It is obvious that the owners take great pride in what they are doing and it showed throughout our visit. We will definately be going back and I would reccomend it as a visit worthwhile.
