The French Rooms is an exciting new venture (opened Easter 2013) in the heart of the village, two miles from the Giant’s Causeway and already described in the Georgina Campbell’s Ireland Guide as “easily the most elegant and stylish restaurant on the Causeway Coast”. Our vision is for a warm, welcoming and informal setting, a place to meet up with friends, drop in for a morning cup of coffee with a ‘treat’, browse through our shop or savour the flavours of our elegantly prepared dishes.
Menus are priced for regular visits and not just for special occasions. The morning menu includes French bistro classics like Eggs Benedict and Croque Monsieur. There are home-made scones freshly baked every morning (served with soft set raspberry jam and cream) and a French Rooms Classic - croissant dipped in whipped frothy egg, lightly fried in butter and filled with crisp bacon and fried egg or honey.
For the Day Menu the big attraction is Tasting Platters. Create your own platter from a selection of bite sized hors d’oeuvres - great for couples or small groups trying a selection of tasty bites. For main dishes you could try the chicken Dijonnaise with marinated chicken breasts infused with Dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic and a touch of paprika roasted and served with a sweet honey dip or what about a whole baked camembert with mixed herbs served hot with crusty breads and butter accompanied with a rich luscious and intense Shiraz - bon appetit.
Dinner and Sunday Lunch retain some of the day time dishes but with added specialities like loin of pork wrapped in bacon and served with a creamy apple sauce or oven baked see bass with a fresh tomato, olives, garlic and herb vinagrette. You could try completing your evening your with a “Ma Cools Shake” - a French Rooms classic - creamy vanilla ice cream whipped with Bushmills whiskey or Baileys Irish cream - to die for!
