About Stix And Stones Balmoral
Stix & Stones offers diners a delicious selection of carefully selected local steak and seafood combined with the unique personal cooking experience on hot stones (an optional choice) in beautifully decorated surroundings.
The taste has well and truly travelled and along with it, the Stix & Stones ethos, 'fresh quality food sourced locally'. All ingredients are sourced from local suppliers where possible and organic, free range and artisan producers are reviewed on a regular basis, to find the very best ingredients.
“Establishing a new restaurant in an already thriving hotel was, of course, a clever move, but while the Stix & Stones brand brought a reputation of its own it also brought all of its quality..”- Michael Jackson, Belfast Media Group , 2019.
Great meal. First time bringing the family and the kids loved it. Will be back
Great food, friends liked their steaks.
Lovely meal and great service it is also good value for money! Will defiantly be back as we all enjoyed our tasty meal!
Top class restaurant Served by top class people Thank you
This turned out to be not a pleasant experience and in the end was over charged by £2. The main drawback was the failure to serve 3 desserts because one (pineapple) was no longer available and the pavlova substituted meant that there were now 2 pavlovas but only one arrived.In the meantime tea and coffee was served at least 10 minutes prior to the arrival of the first dessert.I have had numerous good experiences at previous visits.
It would be good if you didn’t accept reservations for a time when you aren’t open
Limited choice of starter, dry and hard roast potatoes. Tea served with chipped milk jug, coffee had large congealed drip on side of mug. Very disappointing considering the usual high standard that is served in The Lady Anne Grill Bar.
Great service from a lovely friendly waitress
Was there with friends the staff were so attentive nothing was to much, the food was superb and plentiful, the restaurant is very homely an welcoming, an overall fabulous experience will definitely recommend to friends an return with family.
Very happy with food and service. Everything was perfect
The service on this particular night was dreadful, our table was booked for 7.30 and we still hadn't eaten by 9.30, when our food was served it was undercooked and had to be returned. Not good.
Food was excellent however the service was hit and miss
Great food and service
staff very friendly but food was terrible starter was soup with "artisan bread" which turned out to be a hard bread roll - when we asked if they could bring us any proper bread they brought a brioche. main was carvery - beef was very nicely cooked but roast potatoes were inedible (couldn't cut through them) mash was dry. yorkshire puddings were a choice between burnt ones or soggy ones. definitely wouldn't go back
I attended the restaurant with a group of friends, and we were unfortunately very disappointed with our meal. Our reservation was for 7.30pm, and we wished to eat from the two course set menu, as advertised on your website. But we were informed that this menu was only available between 5-7pm. The website does not state that there is a specific time that this menu is available. Three of our party of four ordered sirloin steaks. And all three of us were served accompanying sauce with our steak which was cold. When we asked for our sauces to be heated, we were told that they had been “sitting under the lamp” but that they could be heated back up for us. Once the sauces had been reheated we were informed by a waitress that the chef was unable to keep the sauce heated as it would split. Surely it should be served hot though, as a basic requirement of food safety? I was disappointed that we did not receive any recompense for this, and in fact when our bill arrived, we were even more disappointed to discover that we had been charged £3.40 for tap water! I hope you find this email informative and can make changes to your service to improve it for future customers. I will not be returning to your restaurant however, and I will be advising others to stay away.
The food was great, and kids meals excellent value, staff were very friendly and helpful, only negative was service was slightly slow in between courses, clearing empty plates etc. Will definitely be back with the kids! Chicken Wings were absolutely delicious and great portion size.
Excellent and value for money.
Had a very lovely meal on Saturday past. Food was delicious and my 11 year old son loved the experience of cooking his own steak on the stone. Couldn’t fault the food or drink. Service was a bit slow that night, but only because it was so busy, which a testimony to how good the place is and the fact there was 2 large functions also taking place. Will definitely go again. Very pleased and can’t believe we have haven’t tried it before.
Slow dreadful service, not waitresses fault though, cold food, portions small and tasteless. Although got small refund that’s 12 people who’ll not be back and none of us will recommend it First and last time there Reluctantly have to even give a star but it’s required for processing
delicious meal had by 5 of us on 7.09.2019, food was great - we had chicken and steaks and perfect portion sizes, desserts were fantastic, a bit of a different choice than other places which was nice, staff were so professional and helpful and pleasant especially Finnoghla - we will definitely return.
Excellent food and service. Child friendly.
A better selection of rose wine would be nice Staff were lovely and very friendly but need to be observant more as we tried to get 1 member of staffs attention for 20 minutes to get our bill and there was only 3 couples in sticks and stones ( staff all disappeared once carvery closed)
Lovely food and great service.
Excellent carvery- meat was fabulous Very reasonably priced for a family on a Sunday
The staff shere very attentive
