“treat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Even though waitress saw us standing waiting to be seated she just left us .My daughter was obviously heavily pregnant and we eventually had to seat our selves as she couldn't stand any longer.
The wait for food was quite long
My daughter asked for a pint of dilute orange and got half pint of pure orange .this was changed to half pint orange squash and we were charged for the pure orange!!
food was fine but burger and chips just that no garnish on plate
Was disappointed as had been here previously and had enjoyed it.
They may have been short staffed as 1 waitress seemed to have to do a lot

This place is a real hidden gem in Ballymena. From outside it looks like an average cafe but inside it is nicely decorated, is always clean and the service is very friendly. The menu to good and well priced and the food is consistently delicious. It's our go-to place when in Ballymena.

“Hidden gem in the middle of Ballymena town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

We have eaten here as a family many times during the day and in the evening . The food is delicious and well presented and always hot . Our three children always clear their plates ! Excellent service even though during the day it can get busy . They open at night and you can bring your own wine for a small corkage fee . Beer and spirits and lovely cocktails can be bought there quite reasonably . The evening menu is as good as any "fancy " restaurant and we can never understand why more people don't dine there at night . It may be just location because you really couldn't fault the service , food or value for money .
