Wife had won a voucher in a golf competition and the nearest restaurant was Garfields, in Ardrossan. Tapas and wine sounded ideal as we love Spanish food. Tapas it was but with a distinctly Scottish influence. We went for the Tapas selection with wine for £14 each. 6 different dishes and good portions too. Ideal because we could travel by... More

Having travelled up from Bath on our way to Arran, Garfield's was a treat of a find. We loved the welcome from the staff in this family-run business. The great menu delivered food that was SO tasty. The steak topped with haggis and peppercorn sauce was one of my tastiest steak dishes, ever. My husband had a selection of tapas... More

Just having disembarked from the Arran ferry at lunchtime and having knowledge of this place was a great boon to starting a long journey home. 3 of us had about 8 or 9 plates of Tapas both of conventional Spanish types and some with a Scots influence too - such as haggis on a plate with other items! Nice surroundings... More

Went here for a mid week treat, had the 3 tapas with wine deal for £14 each. There is a good choice of meat and veg dishes to choose from and the portions are very generous. We were provided with a surprise starter of olives and breads which were delicious, we will definitely be back! The rose wine is especially... More

Pauline and her staff are very warm and welcoming. Darren her son is the chef and his food is fantastic. All fresh produce and very tasty. We used to go along as a large family party every month, kids included and were always made to feel very welcome. Great live entertainment and fantastic Xmas party nights.

We usually have a drink at the bar but decided to have a meal on Friday evening and we weren't disappointed. Starter, main and dessert were delicious. Service was great and friendly. Happy with overall experience.

Have been frequenting Garfield's since moving to Ardrossan in 2013 and have never been let down in 3 years. Food is always delicious with plenty of dishes to choose from.
