I have been to the Ramble many times over the past two years and each time is just as expected. Great atmosphere and wonderful food. I would strongly recommend booking a table in advance.

The building is beautiful inside and the staff are very friendly. We were a bit disappointed with the food however. My wife had a chicken pasta and although there was a lot of chicken, it was overall a bit tasteless. I had surf and turf which was OK but I have had better.

We used this restaurant whilst travelling to the airport from the Giants Causeway. When we walked in it was very busy but we were found a table quickly. All the staff without exception were exceptionally polite and helpful. The food was excellent. I had a gammon steak which was without doubt the largest piece of gammon I have ever encountered....
