Upstairs @ Joe's

Reviewed By DGMK - Belfast

We were longtime fans of the previous incarnation of [email protected], so were interested and a little anxious to find out how the new regime was settling in. Needn’t have worried; it’s great and every bit as good. The menu is obviously different and isn’t yet (the new management only started at the start of November)quite as varied as in “the old joe’s”, but in a party of 4, all the mains and desserts were excellent. Service is friendly and prompt (there is a bit of carry over on staff) and if you loved the old version, you’ll love this one too! Hopefully it will be as well supported as its predecessor was; we certainly intend to do our bit!

Mary McBrides Bar

When visiting this beautiful seaside village - do NOT miss a visit to one of Ireland's smallest pubs - Mary McBride's.....say hello to owners Cormac and his sister Fiona while enjoying a pint of Guinness and chatting with one or two of the locals. This Pub has tons of history based on the life of the original owner, Mary McBride herself The pub is a traditional old style house pub, that has had few modernised features in and around it, the downstairs is a lovely family run pub with really nice pub grub menu, with many an evening turning into a sing song, weve got music most saturday evenings and Mary's sunday session from 4pm every sunday Bar menu from April to October Monday - Sunday The upstairs restaurant opened in 2015 and goes under the name of "The Little Black Door " its a seafood Bistro and is opened Thursday - Saturday 6pm to 9.30pm, it serves a wide range of local seafood but also chicken, Duck and Steaks. Call in and enjoy a seafood delight cooked by head Chef Charlie Mcauley and say hello to Sarah and the rest of the girls in the restaurant.

Back staying in Cushendun after two years and we were pleased to find the restaurant above Mary Mcbrides Pub, the Little Black Door was still there. We did book, but in December it is not necessary as we were the only 4 people in the restaurant for the whole Saturday evening. Despite it being so quiet the staff were still very friendly and helpful and we never felt rushed. The menu is not large and is mainly fish but there were some meat dishes, a steak, beef cheeks and a vegetarian dish. The food was very tasty, well presented and served hot. Once again the wine was reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Glens Hotel

Reviewed By Deborah M - Belfast, United Kingdom

Went for evening meal with husband and young son. Ordered garlic mushrooms for starters , 4 breaded mushrooms came on a plate with a handful of lettuce in the middle ,garlic dip an quarter of tomatoe on sde. So unimaginative ! Like Something from the 70's !
Main meal arrived ,we ordered pan fried sea bass with prawns and lemon Beure sauce,side of veg and mash ! Totally inedible, what arrived on our plate was a tiny slither of fish with what appeared to be defrosted frozen shrimps and tasted what tasted like frozen or reheated roast potatoes,grey lumpy mash,carrots and cabbage that was stuck together in clumps with some sort of congealed substance ! Disgusting and totally tasteless ! Managed to eat a small amount of a rather tiny piece of sea bass , couldn't manage or would've risk eating anything else.
No one appeared to ask how things were except when we got up to pay bill. Told waitress or what a appeared to be restaurant manager what we thought of meal . she apologised and said she would tell the chef not that she would need to as barely touched meal told the story ! No mention of reduction in price. I would be embarrassed to serve this type of food . Have to say worst dining experience of our lives !

This cafe is hidden at the end of a pathway below street level, but look for it, the search will be worth your while. Staff are delightful and the owner sat and talked to us about the history of Ireland's troubles when the cafe got...MoreThanks Flipper_3627. We loved having you.

The Corner House National Trust

Reviewed By Davidm1961 - Cambridge, United Kingdom

This cafe is worth going out of your way to visit.
The modern decor is gorgeous and tastefully done while the menu had enough variety to fill up 4 hungry cyclists mid way through 65 miles along the beautiful Northern Ireland coast.
I had a beautiful sweet potato quiche and salad - food heaven for me.
I passed on the cakes but they looked home-made and very tempting.
Free water with real strawberries in on the bar and very clean toilets made for an all round great stopover.
And the staff were the cream on the cake for this top National Trust cafe.
I was a very happy customer after my lunch.

Lir Restaurant

LIR Restaurant is the Restaurant at Cushendall Golf Club. LIR Restaurant is open to members & non members, visitors are very welcome! Bar menu available daily, A la carte menu available from 5pm

Reviewed By Brian S

We were disappointed initially. It is based in a Golf Clubhouse, and it shows. Also, when we went in at 8pm, we were the only customers. A few more came in later. Overall the "look" of the place isn't right.
The staff were friendly though, and the food was delicious. It was only the previous day that my wife had announced that it was rare to get a good Indian curry unless you were in an Indian restaurant.
Well she was wrong here. It was very classy and tasty.
If they sort how the premises looks, this will be a solid 5 stars.
