Award winning restaurant serving the best in traditional indian cuisine with a contemporary twist with excellent service to match. We have a great range of early bird and special deals all year round.
It’s been a while since I’ve sat in the restaurant but I’m basing my review on the two takeaways I’ve had in the last two weeks. The food was fantastic- especially the chicken pathia and the chicken was nice and tender. The garlic naan bread was delicious too.

Eclectic little Bistro in Comber Square. Now recognised in The Georgina Campbell Guide Ireland. Winner of the 2014 Best Eatery and best licences premises at the Ards business awards. We source great tasting local produce, mostly from within Co. Down. We are open 7 days a week from 9am with a gorgeous Bistro menu running nightly from 5pm Wed to Sun. Join us for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a coffee and cake.
Fantastic fry here - with great quality ingredients. Chowder and other dishes are also delicious. However once id a terrible salt n chili squid. it was far too salty and over cooked. however, ive been here dozens of times and everyone can have an off day!
Decor is modern, and bright, but acoustics can leave it sounding a bit loud at times.
Good range of drinks and traybake too.

Situated in Newtownards Molly Brown's is a comfortable and welcoming local pub and restaurant providing quality drinks, food and entertainment.With outside dining and our Live Lounge available for private hire.
Had a lovely bite to eat last Saturday afternoon.
I got the steak Sandwich and my other half got the roast of the day. Both were absolutely outstanding. I would have liked a bit more steak to the steak Sandwich as it seemed to be the tiniest bit of meat on a burger but, but all the same it was lovely.
Only downside was the chewing gum that decided to get stuck down the back of my jeans and coat from some reprobate that decided sticking gum under the chair was sensible.

Pop in most weeks for some tasty bites, always have coffee and scones, up to now favourites have been cinnamon and rhubarb and ginger. This week we had lemon curd and coconut. What a treat, lovely tangy flavour of lemon meant was not too sweet.
A winning combination. Consistently great coffee is why we return. Wide choice of meats and fresh produce. The sirloin steaks have great flavour,actually got all Christmas meats here and was well pleased. Yes restaurant is busy, but usually not long to wait. Improved road access is welcome.

I recently visited Romas for the first time for a friends birthday. I was blown away by the excellent customer service from all the bar staff!! with table service the whole night an amazing selling point for this cosy bar. can't wait to come back.

Good bar but the food is disappointing. It is standard, from frozen and not particularly well presented. My last visit, I think the serving staff begrudged my visit, it interfered with their time on their phone

Established in 1927, the now world famous Cafollas Classic of Conway square have been delighting customers with their traditional Italian ice cream made to an age old recipe and fantastic traditional style fish and chips. Cafollas Classic of Conway square cater for all at a sensible price offering great value for money.
Cafola's is an institution in Newtownards, with many generations running this classic milk bar. The service is friendly and quick, and the food (particularly the ice cream) brilliant. If you don't stop here you are mad. This place is a MUST. LOVE CAFOLA'S.

I went here for afternoon tea following a funeral at Roselawn. The friendly staff quickly served up a selection of fresh sandwiches, sausage rolls and cocktail sausages and kept everyone topped up with tea and coffee. I had a look at the Auld House's menu and will definitely be returning for a meal in the near future most likely on a Wednesday which is steak night. They have a well stocked bar but was surprised that they close at 2100 hrs daily except Sundays where they close at 2000 hrs according to their website.

A relative who lives locally recommended Cloud Nine so I made a special trip from Comber just for coffee! It was worth the journey as not only was the coffee great but so was the place itself. The location, overlooking the airfield is an obvious...MoreHi Terry Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review, we’re so glad you enjoyed your Cloud 9 experience. Hopefully we’ll see you again soon at Cloud 9 Thanks again Jo
