A couple of months ago I enjoyed a great lunch with friends here. The menu choice was good and the serving staff were engaging and helpful.

I returned for an evening meal with my family this week. The menu selection was good, but the staff were not particularly welcoming and the service was slow. The food was very pleasant but the poor service (when it was not busy) spoilt the evening for us. I couldn’t say if they do desserts, as we left after some time waiting.

We thought the bill was slightly on the high side, which would be fine if everything was enjoyable. We were left feeling rather disappointed. If I could give 3.5 stars I would as the food was very good, but the service was not.

Had a fabulous afternoon in the ava with some friends, staff went over and above, were extremely friendly and tending to all our needs on a busy Saturday including being very patient while it took us a while to decide on food and drinks.. The manager himself was good fun and very welcoming.. Would highly recommend this place for both food and staff.. Food was five star quality and good portion sizes. The manager even enjoyed a photo bomb

Loved my dining experience at the Ava.
Myself, daughter and 2 x grandchildren went for evening meal.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a very professional, friendly guy ( I think his name was Chris), who showed us to our table and explained food choices etc. Then a lady came and took order.Our food was delicious, from starter to mains and children's meals also, each of us thought 10 out of 10. Very professional staff and fast service also.
Will most definitely be back, I think the Ava will now be my no.1 restaurant in Bangor. Thank You Ava, it was all truly great.

Was here recently for dinner. I've never had a bad experience in the Ava and I don't think I ever will. Was served by someone called Emily or something similar and someone else, I forgot the name, but the two are a hoot. Kept the whole family laughing. Although the place was busy the staff were pleasant and kept smiling throughout service. I had the butternut squash rissotto and it was beautiful. My husband and kids loved the food. Definitely will be back again! Thank you all
