The ground floor ‘Vin Cafe Restaurant’ combines the value and freshness of home spun food typical of a gastro pub with the elegance of fine dining and the casual atmosphere of Tapas. The surroundings offer relaxed ambiance, deep comfortable seating with a real interest from the waiting staff to ensuring everyone stays is restful and enjoyable.
The Ava has come a long way in gastronomy miles…in 1924 food might have been a pigs foot bought in the market and enjoyed with a bottle of Bass. The building although relatively unchanged on the out side has been through a couple of renovations which have seen the entire lower and ground floors ripped out and rebuilt.
The Ava is located in the centre of Bangor just across the road from Bangor’s Bus and Train Terminus. Car parking is available across the main street and on street. Parking in the car park is paid by the hour and the on street parking is for one hour only. Parking after 6pm is free in the car park and unlimited time on street. Dufferin Avenue car park which is 3 minutes walk is free all day. From the Ava you are 5 minutes walk to Aurora, Bangor’s Aquatic & Sport Centre. Beside Aurora is Bangor’s Walled Garden, a beautifully restored Victorian walled garden. Click Here for directions. Click Here for menu.
