While studying in Portrush this place was known for its variety, quality and well balanced menus. It boasts two restaurants in the one building, the top floor hosting what was known as the Ramore restaurant where unfortunately kids are not permitted.
With an open plan kitchen it looked great but as we had our son it tow we had to settle for the hustle and bustle of the wine bar.
Forgetting it was half term I made the mistake of not pre booking and on arrival at 18:00 it was so busy people were queuing out the door, yes it’s that popular.
The wait was estimated at 45 minutes so we shuffled our way through to the bar to enjoy a pre dinner cocktail. Speaking to the bar man, they did 400+ covers for lunch, quite a push for food that’s made to order, what recession I said but it’s great that restaurants are thriving.
To sum this visit up i would say that the food is very good, very reasonably priced and if you arrive and eat before 18:30 and it’s about £2 per dish cheaper!
What s great idea, A great way to fill those early seats before the much sought after 19:00 reservations.
Make sure you try their famous desert station, simply fantastic!
If your visiting Ireland, the Antrim coastline is a must, you have the carrick-a-rede rope bridge, the giants causeway and the oldest whisky distillery in the world….Bushmills all within a few miles of each other.
A great place to stay is the Causeway hotel, based right next door to the Giants Causeway it overlooks the beautiful portballintrae, serves great food, fantastic service with friendly and helpful staff. When you reside in the hotel you get free passes to the causeway visitor centre which is normally about £6 per person.
After all your sight seeing, swing past the RAMORE, you will love it!
