Ocho Tapas Bistro

Tapas are Spanish nibbles which can easily turn into a full-scale feast if you order enough of them. That’s the beauty of them. They can be a snack like Pinxtos from San Sebastian, small plates to larger sharing platters. In fact, we can’t think of a more sociable way of eating.

Ocho Tapas Bistro in Portrush is well-known for great seafood (the coast couldn’t be closer!) and freshly prepared dishes using local produce. This is a place where the menus are seasonal and inventive. Their signature dish is Fivemiletown Goats Cheese Croquettas and Beetroot Pannacotta as featured on front cover of “Yes Chef “ magazine. You should also try the Lacada Ale Pie called “Oops I dropped the pie” There are lots of very good vegetarian options too.

The wine list is well-considered and there is also a good selection of craft beers and cocktails. Check out the early bird and daily specials Also group menus for 2 to 40 people.

There are plenty of sweet treats too, so get there for a taste of Spain on the north coast. VAMOS!
