We came for a nice relaxing lunch and it was just that. The service was absolutely amazing from start to finish from a gentleman that we never caught the name of. We sat outside as we had a dog but were greated with a clean...water bowl with fresh water for the pup. The food was great and the portions are good. The milkshake was devine. We will definitely be back the next time we are in this direction.More

My wife and I came here for lunch because we'd previously noticed that the café was being renovated. It was good to have a table overlooking the harbour. We ordered soup and a sandwich to share as well as coffee. The thick, creamy leek and...potato soup was served piping hot with a slice of fresh wheaten bread - it was excellent. The chicken salad sandwich we shared was well filled and very tasty and the coffee was served immediately and really hot. The prompt, friendly service was excellent and the food was very good value for money. Highly recommended!!More

I never write reviews ever but I felt I had too. Just had breakfast today with my partner on the way to the Giants causeway. Never have I been in a more unfriendly and uninviting cafe. The breakfast was lovely but let down by the...staff! I wouldn’t come back again ... if you’re looking for service with a smile then try somewhere else.More

Stunning view of the harbour, but sadly the staff were extremely rushed, when our food did arrive nothing was freshly cooked, frozen chips and scampi and small portions, we thought being so close to a harbour the fish would have been fresh with home cooked...chips, and as others have said, cash only.More

We had lunch at the Harbour lighthouse arriving around 1.30pm. On the plus side they're dog friendly and dogs are welcomed and watered on the patio outside. On the downside the service although friendly, was painfully slow (we took nearly two hours to finish the...meal) and the food was dry. Please note they don't take cards.More

Called in with my daughter for breakfast one Saturday morning. Food was lovely as usual and staff all very helpful. Great location, and a brilliant spot for a lovely breakfast/lunch

We were travelling the Antrim coast road and many places were still closed or needed a booking in advance, so we were delighted to find this cafe open and taking customers. We went in and were told to sit down. Our table had not been...cleaned, or at least, cleaned properly before we arrived and was not cleaned before our food was served. The food was ok apart from the vegetable soup which was tastleless. My biggest issue was the bill. Although the menue was reasonable, we were charged £7.95 for a glass of hot chocolate, 1.50 for a plate of bread which we never got, and £2.50 for a jug of cold tap water!!! They do not accept either debit or credit cards and do not accept Euro's!!More

We had lunch at the Harbour Lighthouse. The restaurant is located beside the harbour where a scene from Game of thrones was filmed. We just had coffee and a sandwich. Beautiful setting.

We visited beautiful Carnlough today and called for lunch. We only had toasted sandwich and tea but it was very tasty. The meals being brought out to other customers seemed to be massive portions. It was lovely eating while looking out over the beautiful harbour...where fisherman were unloading their catchMore

This really is a cafe with a cafe style menu. In high season it gets very busy but in off season you should get a table.
