Where did it all go wrong?? This place used to do geat value, fresh bistro food and had people queued on the street to get in on a Fri and Sat night. I decided to take my wife for her birthday meal and was quite surprised to find there were only 2 tables filled. I soon discovered why. The food was overpriced, the quality was average and the food was so slow at appearing from the kitchen that the table next to us were begging for bread!! The waitress was trying her best and the actual food was not that bad but as a dining experience it was very poor and disappointing. Last week we went to Vanilla restaraunt in Newcastle, which is a bit more expensive but the food , service and overall experience leaves Sax in the shade...I will leave it there needless to say it will be a long time before I return.

We visited the Gilford Restaurant (they don't have a page on trip advisor) food was amazing, waiter was friendly, very knowledgable on the dishes and good Craic, however the service was a little slow as there was only the one waiter for the whole restaurant, atmosphere was nice and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Had a fabulous,meal tonight, the only problem was a family with two small extremely badly behaved daughters who were given free reign to wreck. The silence when they left was almost deafening!
Our food,was,wonderful, perfectly cooked and served just how we liked it. The waiter was friendly and apologised for the noise. The meals were good value and I for one will definitely be back.
Perhaps it might be an idea to bring the no children rule from Mill St round the corner. A big 10/10

Booked Mill Street Restaurant, Same management as Sax on the Street in Gilford, for four. We had heard quite a bit - all positive- about the restaurant, and we were not disappointed. Level of service exceptional, food exquisite and personal attention from owner very welcome. Having read one fairly derogatory review, I would suggest that you book well in advance and take cognisance that this is a child free zone - something that should be respected and not be considered as a criticism.
Just go!

Gilford village which sits on the Banbridge to Portadown road has a little restaurant that goes by the name Sax on the Street, strange name however nothing strange about the service or food in here, very good and value for money but we can never figure out their hours as they seem to close when you expect them to be open. A few times we called but found them closed.
