Great Food and Service. We love when we visit. Everyone so friendly and helpful . Different types of food recently and this has really brought it up a few notches (not that it needed it )
Food is delicious as always. Great service. Lovely little place!
Food was very tasty and a good variety of choice of food. Chose to miss starter so we could indulge in a dessert. Portion sizes were big and staff very friendly and attentive to needs.
Our favourite place to brunch on a Sunday
Great food and friendly staff

Had a lovely lunch to catch up with family. Great food and ambience. The cheese and bacon fries beat me though. So good but so many. Will be back soon
All absolutely amazing 🤩 class vegan menu 👌 best staff 🙌🏼
First time visitors. Excellent service, staff attentive and knowledgeable. Food fantastic and very good value. Will definitely return
We have only visited a few times but it’s now a favourite place. Fabulous food, service and surroundings. Well done Niche, even during this particular time, we feel safe with all infection control procedures in place.
I recently visited the Niche. The staff were excellent - from assisting me to change my online booking reservation to ensuring we were happy and satisfied with all aspects of the meal. Friendly, clean, hygienic and excellent value for money. I was a first time customer but I will definitely be back. Thank you ❤️
I have been to niche quite a lot over this COVID period and I have never been disappointed. I look forward to being able to have a cocktail on a visit soon!
Always great food and friendly staff
One of my favourite eateries in North Ayrshire
My toddler and I were made most welcome, great kids menu, crayons and picture to colour in while waiting on food. Lovely staff and food is delicious.
First visit, will definitely be back.
My mum and I reserved a table online which was very easy. It was our first visit. Absolutely superb meal. It was great to try something a wee bit different. We both had burgers which I’ve never seen on a menu anywhere else, and wow, they were delicious. Will definitely be back and recommend to others.
Brilliant service and food as always!
Been here before a few times. We had a small platter of the light snacks,which was very. tasty. Service was efficient and friendly. Puddings weer HUGE but we did manage to polish them off. Would recommend.
Amazing food as usual, great service from all staff. Already planning my next visit
Outstanding customer service and food!!
