About Tony Macaroni @ The Byre, EK
Our cosy restaurant holds a special place in Tony Macaroni’s heart as it was the first one he opened back in 2007.
Since then, its amazing atmosphere and fabulous food have made it extremely popular with our army of regular customers – so book early to guarantee a table!

Alternatively, just pop in for a tasty treat from our takeaway menu – we have something for everyone.
Our friendly and welcoming staff will make sure every meal with Tony Macaroni is one to remember!
We are sorry but this restaurant is not currently accepting online reservations through ResDiary.
Had a table booked for 7.45pm on Saturday night (25/8/18) arrived & was advised table wasn’t ready & staff told us to go downstairs for a drink & table should be ready in 10mins.. we went back upstairs to restaurant at 8.05pm, table still not ready so we sat at the waiting area, at 8.15pm table was ready, went to table & sat until 8.40pm still no drinks order or food taken. Decided we had enough come 8.45pm, complained to staff at till who gave us our money back for the drinks we had downstairs .. very disappointed , I can understand the place being busy but no excuse for the poor service, we felt like an inconvenience & we will not be back.
Our waitress was not particularly cheery, which unfortunately put a bit of a downer on the meal from the start. The food however was very good, with the exception of the goats cheese salad where you could have been a lot more generous with the goats cheese I felt. One thin slice is not really sufficient when it is a main course.
Great meal and service
Our waiter, a young boy, was very professional, warm and friendly while others who served our food were in more of a rush.
Visited with family for my wife's birthday. On entering the restaurant we were met by a dour faced waiter, who just stood looking at desk before we had to say we had a table booked. We were shown to a lovely table situated in an open glass floor to ceiling windows. Waiter stated that the kids were allowed to use play park, however an adult had to accompany them down makeshift rickety stairs down through another bar underneath, however, on the other side was perfectly good sturdy stairs that would take them directly down to play park!! Very large comprehensive menu my daughter ordered pasta which was very chewy and dry, in fact we had to ask for additional sauce for this. My other daughter had pizza which was enjoyed and demolished. My inlaws chose liver pate bruschetta which they stated was very strong tasting, I shared the goat cheese bruschetta which was lovely. For main I chose the Risotto portifino which had rubbery prawns and very creamy sauce, I think too much cream and a 1970's piece of curly parsley on top!! My wife had four cheese macaroni to which she stated tasted like normal Mac n' cheese with yet more chewy pasta!! The toilets were very odd, to pass by women's cubicles to reach the male toilets. My daughter who is 9 likes to go independently to toilet to act grown up, however was not at all comfortable with this arrangement. Overall a disappointed visit and in future would visit another Italian restaurant in EK village which is far superior.
We received brilliant service from the minute we arrived with friendly, chatty servers. Food was great.
Bring back the veal..
Great meal as ever!
Overpriced, service was slow and no atmosphere
Very nice food except the tiramisu which was too much cream, not enough cake. However the prices were steep.
Always enjoy a nice meal here. Portion sizes are fantastic, they don't scrimp on quantity. Quality of our food is always of great standard. Service is quick, friendly and professional.
good food great value for money
Top notch every time
Great restaurant we regularly go to because of the service and quality and value of the food.

Lovely venue food and staff were very friendly thank you.
I was really disappointed with my visit unfortunately. The welcome as we entered the restaurant was terrible, like the girl really couldnt be bothered. We were taken to our seats and luckily the waitress who took our order was far more friendly. I was brought drinks by the original girl who welcomed us and she literally threw them down on the table and did not even say a word. Dinner tasted nice at the time however i was up ill all night after it. I will definitely not be returning due to the very poor service and potentially dodgy food. Really disappointed.
