The owner is inviting, the friendly chef cooks in front of you and the food is tasty as well as healthy! What a great restaurant. The interesting thing is that they do not have an alcohol license, but are virtually across a narrow lane from a very cheap and well stocked off-license (alcohol shop). I purchased a fabulous bottle of wine and the restaurant does not charge a corkage fee. My food was wonderful and the price was pretty good too. I would recommend this restaurant highly. The décor and bathrooms are as bright and inviting as the owner. She is a nice lady from Scotland who started Byblos a few years ago when there were very few restaurants in Belfast. It's still here and getting good reviews. With a freshly grilled meat and your own wine - you just can't beat it.
A must eat!
Grilled Haloumi cheese and a mixed kebab with my own selected wine!
The owner of our B&B recommended 55 North for dinner, a lot of restaurants were closed as it was a Monday night and also out of high season. We got there at 6:45pm which is when their early bird menu stopped but I asked and they said I could still get the deal if I ordered quickly.
Service was prompt and efficient and I appreciated that they let us still get the early bird menu. The view from the restaurant is lovely, overlooking the ocean and on this particular day a gang of surfers trying to ride the waves.
Favorite Dish: The 3 course early bird special is £11.95, I ordered the cheesy garlic bread, the 8 oz ribeye which came with chips, crispy onions and a peppered cream (£2 extra) and for dessert the Eton mess which is strawberries, meringue and whipped cream. I think this was the best meal I had on the trip, everything was delicious and it was very reasonably priced.
After you have walked to and admired the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, there is a handy little tea house by the car park.
They serve tea, coffee, light snacks and a delicious range of cakes/slices that are all laid out on the counter to tempt you!!
A great place to have a break and enjoy the view.
