About us

The Lighthouse Bistro


Nestled along the County Antrim coast between Carrickfergus Castle and the Gobbins Cliff Path, The Lighthouse Bistro is situated just off Victorian Whitehead's colourful promenade. 

The Lighthouse Bistro is a small, cosy, award winning family run restaurant which makes everything from scratch including its own pasta, breads and smokes and pickles a range of local produce too. You can expect to find local cheese, seafood, coffee and a range of meat dishes such as smoked pork belly and lamb shank on the menu. 

The Bistro holds various events throughout the year. Dates are announced here and via social media. We are unlicenced but you may bring a bottle!

Our menu is subject to change. We regularly have daily lunch and evening specials on offer. 

Sea you all soon!
