Usually opt to head to Portrush for evening meal when up at North Coast but came here with the family to celebrate a special occasion. Food is incredible, we never knew this place existed and will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

At Tartine for my 60th birthday today. Disappointed that it was a carvery as didn't tell me this on website. Main course not very warm and duo of lemon desserts terrible. Lemon Posset was not set and the lemon torte was not very lemony. Have been in the evening before and was always very good but after today I won't... More

We booked several weeks in advance which, on the Friday night we were there, proved a good move. Do not judge 'the book' from its cover as from the outside it doesn't look anything special but as soon as you walk in you see that it is a beautiful restaurant. The service and food were excellent - it was the... More

We had not visited Tartine for some time and so took the opportunity recently. As expected the standard of the meal was superb. We love the early bird menu where you can have two courses and a glass of wine for £18 - a bargain! We couldn't look past the goats cheese starter which was as good as I remembered... More

My wife and I returned to Tartine from last year for another evening meal in March 2017. We had pre-booked and arrived to find the open fire lit and we ordered drinks in the comfortable waiting area. We also perused the menu and ordered our choices before being taken to our table. Once again we had an excellent meal. We... More

We drove up to Bushmills from Belfast, just over an hour, to enjoy the scenery and happened upon Tartine by accident but what a find. The 3 course Sunday lunch is terrific value at £20 a head and the food is fine dining quality. For starters I had the goats cheese salad which was excellent. The cheese was light and... More

Ate here at the behest of my wife. Really should have insisted on the Bushmills Inn. The starters were out in a flash which is never a good sign. I had a sole that had no soul - smallest whole fish I've ever seen. Allegedly served with dauphinois potatoes which were in fact par boiled potatoes dumped into watered down... More
