It is the sort of place you might drive past and never give it a second thought. Don't. It may not be the most modern of establishments, but it is clean, tidy with pleasant staff. Busy wee place, though service was very fairly quick. Mum had sliced chicken with gravy, very tasty, I had gammon and garlic fries. It were... More

Great food. Lovely friendly staff. Great portions and all freshly cooked! It is somewhat hidden away but well worth searching for.

Nadines was in Ballymena long before the huge number of eateries that have now opened up all over the town. It still thrives and is still popular providing good wholesome meals at reasonable prices.

Coming here has became very sickening as the food is not the best, the toilet is falling apart, the floors are never clean and the staff talk about you behind your back. No longer a friendly diner to visit.

I've seen some of the worse reviews and can understand them because one of my visits over the last few months was bad but that was all down to one waitress who clearly couldn't care. The last three visits I had nothing to complain about. There is a very wide menu with something for everybody. Roast dinners, steaks and fry... More

I nearly fell on the floor in here. The floor is quite greasy just like the food. The food here is full of oil and on massive plates with tiny portions and the staff charge different prices to what is on the menu, Will not return, save your money folks

The food I got from here (burger and chips) seemed to be handed to me as if it had been just removed from their fridge. The girl also got my order wrong when I asked for my burger undressed but she denied it. WILL NEVER BE BACK AGAIN. Dump.

food being overcooked is okay but here burns it and when you are able to eat it, it burns your mouth completely. Staff are cheeky, floors are full of grease. Wont be back.
