Called here after wandering round Portrush trying to find somewhere that would do light snacks such as soup, sandwiches or Panini's as thats all the kids wanted. We had tried nearly everywhere and stumbled upon the Ocean Cafe on the way back to the car as we nearly gave up as most places stop serving light snacks at 5pm. Saw... More

Always a good breakfast and lunch. Good for traditional favorites too. The pies are always good too. The staff is nice and food priced perfectly.

Had to wait 30min. For chips and burgers for me and my partner. The food was tasteless. No flavour to the chips. They taste like cheap oven chips. No amount of vinger or salt helped. It wasnt worth the wait.

Was recommended this cafe by staff at the rock shop, on a day out with my partner and two children. I ordered bacon, egg and chips, kids ordered sausage chip and partner ordered chicken wrap. My bacon was solid - like it had been in the kitchen hot cupboard all morning, chips were awful, sausages were as bad as the... More

In Portrush for the day with a friend and her son. Called in here for breakfast on her recommendation as she had enjoyed the food here on a previous visit. Doesn't look very exciting from the outside and the decor inside isn't the fanciest. However we were greeted straight away and given are menus. Staff were polite and friendly. Our... More

My family and I had breakfast here on our last day of hols. Big mistake cost us £32 for 4 breakfasts for myself, my partner and our two small children age 2 & 7. To be honest food was ok not great but filled us up for our travels. Not too happy with bill tho.
