Our whole family enjoyed Ritz Burgers and two of us had Mars bar thick shakes - these were the real deal- loads of ice cream, loads of Mars bar! We went back for ice cream and we were not disappointed. All in all great venue,...great service, great food. Dont miss when you're in Millport!More

I try to get to Millport at least once a year (under normal circumstances) and if I don't get into The Ritz for a Knickerbocker Glory or a Marshmallow Ice it's been a wasted journey (not really, the whole place is great). For almost 40...years I have been going and the quality has never faltered! The whole atmosphere of the cafe is like going to your families for a meal. And the decor...chefs kiss! Love it (This is a general review rather than a recent visit but I can't wait to get back)More

Unfortunately the seating area was closed owing to covid restrictions hence the lower score. Anytime we are in Millport this is a must visit for ice cream which is always yummy and a great selection of flavours. The carry out service is efficient and friendly...as usual and well worth a visit .More

Whilst on Cumbrae we wanted lunch, we opted for the Ritz and upon entering my m in law (84) said it was like her youth with the booths and juke box etc. The food is plentiful and home made and service friendly,

Food good service excellent and quick and pricing fair. Do takeaway food and huge variety of sit in food. Well worth a visit even if it’s just to have a coffee ( which is excellent) and find the hidden triangle on the tables, stick a...record on the juke box and just chill. Ice cream flavours are quirky and really good or just try the world renowned ritz vanilla which is a creamy delight. Enjoy!More
