You’ll struggle to find a more stunning setting for a cafe, bar and restaurant than where 55° North calls home. Yep, overlooking Portrush’s East Strand beach, 55° North has been family-run since 2005 and is loved by locals as well as visitors. The food is exceptional and every menu, from lunch right through to the a la carte, makes use of the freshest produce available. Dishes are internationally-inspired and range from pasta to grilled lamb shanks. Given the coastal Portrush location, however, you’d be very wise indeed to try some of 55° North’s fish or seafood. Make a reservation and head to Causeway Street.
The food was amazing for the price that I paid the view of the sea was beautiful and added to the the experience the staff was friendly and very helpful and kind
Fab food great views and not over priced we went as a family we had starter main and dessert all for the price of the main really impressed
Food was tasty. Handy that was able to book online. Will be back soon and enjoy the view around and also to do the walk.
Excellent service. Decor and atmosphere very good. Food excellent and good value for money .Extensive menus ,all food allergies catered for I can recommend this restaurant very highly to everyone
Location of 55 north is wonderful and interior great also. However the food was disappointing. Having been to 55 previously was glad to see the deal of getting 3 course meal for cost of your main is available.. However, the starter was a very small portion (two tiny pieces of brie) and the 55 burger was very poor with the chips on the side also of poor quality. I also noted that a lot of the starters and desserts now have a £1 supplement added so it is not really as good a deal as it once was. Came away thinking just an ok meal but disappointed at the obvious attempts to both save money in the quantity and quality of the food and the additional supplement charges. Unlikely to return.
Service was very good. There was a nice busy buzz in the restaurant. The breads starter was really nice and enough for two. Our meals were really good! Two adults and one very happy child. He loved the gravy with his chicken and potatoes. Our creamy pepper pasta and chicken Maryland were really tasty. Would like to go back and try the 2 or 3 course meal deal as it seems like excellent value.
From we walked in we where made welcome. Staff where very friendly and very good at their job as we didn’t not have to wait long before someone came over to take our order. £15 for 3 courses was absolutely amazing value for what you got! Food was first class! Definitely be back on next visit to North Coast
My experience at 55 north was pleasant.. The meet and greet elderly lady seemed to be a bit off. Not wanting to offend. I had requested a window seat. Whn I relayed this to her, she grunted. I found This a bit embarrassing as I had visitors from overseas. You’re waiting staff were very pleasant and happy to oblige.. The vow was amazing. Over all we have a lovely visit!!
Fabulous view from table overlooking the ocean - that's the best part! Prices well up from last visit, though good enough value when you add in the starter and dessert package. Starters satisfactory, but £1 surcharges a rip-off. Main courses disappointed! Lamb shank was the worst ever: stringy, fatty and little meat, sitting on a bed of warmish potato. Fish was OK, but bland and a vegetable accompaniment would have helped. Two steaks [when the right dishes eventually arrived] were tasty enough. One 'side' was an embarrassment - the garlic chips turned out to be ordinary chips in a dish half filled with a garlic liquid. Half of them became soggy and inedible - just awful! Generally tasty desserts to finish - the butterscotch sundae was so-so; glass not filled and butterscotch rationed! Passed on our overall disappointment to a very friendly waitress, but there was no come-back. She obviously didn't pass on my views. I'd English visitors and apart from the view, I felt badly let down. I'll not be rushing back.
My wife and I enjoyed a great evening to ourselves at 55 Degrees North. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. Food was excellent and very good value especially when choosing from the early bird menu. We recently paid twice the price for a similar meal in Belfast which wouldn't have been any better with poorer service. We shall be back
