Great food and service! Highly recommend!
Our group of 10 enjoyed our experience overall. Food was good and menu varied. However the burgers are a little on the pricey side at £11.95. The two for one deal though was a great idea! It’s a good place to chat with a young vibe. Would have liked a cocktail evening as they look amazing!
Love Niche Food is always spot on and love the vibe - nice n laidback - missing Bang Bang Prawns thou Bug bear thou - that’s 3rd (!) time we end up with extras on bill - last night it was salt n chilli chips (not as a side just on plate) add on at £3.95 - not loads of money but yes we got it and didn’t ask for it and didn’t realise until bill came - thought it was part of our salt n chilli burger deal Same waitress as well last time it was drinks before that it was a side so not right
friendly efficient staff.
Disappointed that they had run out of cheesecake 😪
Great food and excellent service .
Excellent quality fresh food
Great service and excellent food
3rd time being at the niche. Didn’t think it could get better, then they mixed up their menu!! Great and efficient service on a busy night! Food was amazing, quality meat dishes and portion sizes are incredible! On our top 3 list of favourite places!
Definitely our favourite place for breakfast lunch & dinner 😋😋
Excellent lunch, reserved table 5 by the window. Steak salad was superb, so much so my husband wished he had it and he never eats salad. His Cajun chicken wrap with sweet potato fries, also great. Will be back soon.
Got treated to an early Father’s Day lunch! Great atmosphere, brilliant service and even better food! Can’t fault anything! New favourite place to eat! Will definitely be back more often.
Absolutely amazing! Food was amazing! Staff were so friendly and helpful! Will definitely be back!!
Great experience all round. The staff were polite and seemed to be genuinely happy at work. We were given a good amount of time to look at menus and drinks were brought in the meanwhile. The place has a fresh, open aesthetic with the kitchen visible from dining area, even the chef's gave a polite nod, all the whilst the restaurant was busy. We had the Garlic Mushrooms and Mozzarella sticks to start which were great, followed by the new menu addition of Cajun chicken mac and cheese. Will definitely be back again, and hope they continue to carve out theire own "Niche" in the retsuarant landscape. Thanks to all for am excellent dining experience.
There are plenty of tasty food options and a great selection for vegetarians/ vegans or those who need gluten free. Fabulous cakes.
Second time here and we will be back 😊 food was delicious and the service was great (again). Really nice warm atmosphere and friendly staff. Have recommended to everyone. Love the new menu. Thanks again!
Very good, will be back to be sure.
Went for the first time for my girlfriend's birthday. She was given a glass of prosecco on the house for her birthday. Service was first class and the meal was as massive as it was class. If you're in Troon you've got to check this place out
Food was great and service was brilliant.
