Great food and fabulous staff. Perfect for any group, whether it be a family dinner or a birthday meal, the menu has something for everyone (with the best chicken and bacon pasta ever) and the staff are always so friendly. Love it.

I visit this restaurant on a regular basis with my wife and we are never disappointed, a good menu from pizza to sirloin and everything in between. I have tried many different dishes all of which were excellent but I must mention the pasta al forno, it's lovely. Call in here when in town and you won't be disappointed

I have been eating at carriages for years now and I've never had a bad meal. Their pizzas are delicious, always cooked to perfection and generous portions. Waiting staff are friendly and attentive. It's set up as if you're eating in an actual train carriage, though there is a section of normal tables. It's preferable to sit in the carriages... More

Staff very welcoming friendly and courteous. Ordered food had a bit of a lengthy wait but was well worth it when food arrived. Food was all freshly cooked piping hot and delicious. Not ideal for people in a hurry, but well worth a visit !!!!

Definitely my family's favourite restaurant in Larne. Great selection from pizza to my favourite chicken and bacon pasta. Always our first thought for special occasions. They have a great gluten-free selection too for my mum who is coeliac.
