    Belfast Restaurants

    Before my most recent visit to the city of my birth in November 2012, if you had told me there was a restaurant offering 10,888,869,450,418, 352,160,768,000,000 menu options I would have said you were mad. If you had further told me that the same establishment served spicy chicken wings that would break me out is a sweat, I would have been sure of...

  • The Other Place

    Belfast Restaurants

    If you want to get a full-on artery-clogging Ulster fry for breakfast, come here! The main difference between an Ulster fry and an Irish fry is that the Ulster one has more starch in it in the form of potato cake or soda farls. Jane (Oneonta_ni) recommended it to Suzanne_M, who then suggested going here for breakfst before embarking on a mad...

    Cayenne is owned by a famous Irish chef named Paul Rankin. (He has appeared numerous times on Ready, Steady, Cook). Most probably one of the most famous and well known restaurants in Belfast, indeed throughout N.Ireland/Ireland.

    Belfast Restaurants

    We had our Saturday night VT meeting here. This included moi (of course!), Suzanne_m, gabsblack, chelly & her family and Brian. I have been back here plenty of times since that VT meeting. They have this fantastic offer where if you order a meal at 5.30, regardless of the price on the menu, then you only pay 5.30 for that meal, even though it...

    Belfast Restaurants

    I LOOOOOOVED their home-made bread, it was thick, chewy and just a little sweet. I had the vegetable soup for a starter, the chicken pasta for my main course and (for once) skipped dessert.... though I'm sure that would have been fabulous too!! Suzanne_M had booked it for my visit to Belfast, if you ever go there with her, the staff all know her...

  • Belfast Pubs

    Belfast Restaurants

    This is a very old pub located in a listed building down a narrow entryway. The decor is traditional pub style with cosy booths and tables. The staff are friendly and efficient - many of them are Australian because the owner is as well. This also means the menu is extremely varied. It is not often you can find crocodile or kangaroo on a Belfast pub...

    Belfast Restaurants

    A small local cafe on Botanic avenue serving everything from tea/coffee to full fry ups, Burgers even mash potatoes. A full menu is available and its all tasty and fairly cheap i.e. £5 for a huge chicket fillet burger with chips and a coke. The Huge CHicken Burger with Bacon and Cheese is my absolute favorite although the breakfast fry is pretty...

The menu look promising.I had marinated fresh sardines on French bread toast, served with rocket & Parmesan salad and French fries. A glass of Pinot Grigio to wash it down.Then vanilla ice cream with honeycomb, and a cappuccino. All delicious....

  • LOVELY, LIGHT & LEBANESE

    The owner is inviting, the friendly chef cooks in front of you and the food is tasty as well as healthy! What a great restaurant. The interesting thing is that they do not have an alcohol license, but are virtually across a narrow lane from a very cheap and well stocked off-license (alcohol shop). I purchased a fabulous bottle of wine and the...

  • NOT FOO-KIN BAD

    Of course I ate here! How could I not? Well, it’s not actually a bar and they don’t do the other thing in their name either, but they do have good noodles. It’s an all you can eat Chinese buffet and there are some excellent dishes. Everything is hot and fresh. You can actually watch them cooking more in their open plan kitchen. Rice or noodles,...

  • Liked it!

    Very stylish city centre café attributed to a local celebrity chef. Probably I was tempted in by having seen another celebrity chef (Gordon Ramsay) at Galway market the previous day.Extensive menu but café type food as apposed to what you expect in a full restaurant. I had Texan style beef chilli with potato wedges. Very good. With designer water,...

  • Irish fare

    We were going to eat at a fancier restaurant but the parking ticket put me in a foul mood and when we passed by the restaurant there was a sign saying no open toe shoes or trainers (tennis shoes) and we would have had to return to the car to change our shoes. So we found another restaurant that we recommended to us that didn't have a dress code,...

  • Quick sandwiches, salads and wraps

    We got to Belfast much later than I expected so we were in a bit of a rush to get lunch. We were approached by someone selling discounted tickets for the Belfast City Tour bus and they offered a 25% off coupon for The Streat which was just a couple of blocks away so we decided to grab a quick bite before getting on the bus. I had a Big Smoke...

  • Place was hopping

    We visited Robinsons on both nights we stayed in Belfast, it was just across the street from the Europa Hotel where we were staying. We ate at the Bistro upstairs and found the food good but wished for traditional Irish fare. Somehow we missed the basement loos I understand are legendary and we didn’t visit the Roxy Nightclub the top-floor disco.

  • A wee cracker!

    Firstly, allow me to explain the title of this tip. I am not referring to a small biscuit to put cheese on or even a diminutive novelty to adorn your Christmas tree, rather it is a Belfast expression to denote something or someone that you approve of. Use of the word "wee" (small) is no indication of size, a hulking 6'5" rugby player would be...

  • NOTHING TO MOURN ABOUT

    If you like seafood, you will have nothing to cry about here. The Mourne Seafood Bar is a classy restaurant located next to the historical Kelly Cellars serving up freshly caught fish and other seafood from the Irish Sea. The interior is an interesting mix of an open kitchen and a romantically dark upscale restaurant. Between their daily chalkboard...

    Enticed in here by the selection of real ales advertised, sadly none on offer the day we visited - just a very temporary blip we were assured, some interesting bottled beers to amuse us though.Anyway, not just the beer we were after, food here was excellent and reasonably priced, enjoyed our meal here.Plenty of live music on offer here too.

    We struggled to find somewhere to eat in Belfast centre at 8pm on a Sunday evening, but fortunately the waitress in a restaurant that was just closing when we arrived pointed us in the direction of the nearby Ten Square Hotel Bar & Grill.We sat in the bar area where there's a good menu at reasonable prices with several vegetarian choices also...

  • Good food

    One of Paul Rankin's restaurants. The food was great and service pleasant and friendly. I had roast chestnut and wild mushroom soup, turbot with fresh tagliatelle, wild mushrooms and Sauterne cream, then pear and quince crumble with cinnamon ice cream. It's not cheap, but for the quality of the food I'd say it was pretty good value for money.

  • Great homecooked food

    A nice local Cafe which sells home cooked foods. I sampled the Irish Stew and Wheaten which was very nice and reasonably priced at £2.70. The menu seemed to cover both breakfast and lunch. They sell tea, coffee, soup, pasta, scones etc. There is seating upstairs as well as downstairs. Staff were friendly and the service was very good.

    Nice place; good menu.Its the cafe/restaurant within the Grand Opera House - very central location almost next to Europa Hotel.Liked the decor and the relaxed ambience, as well as efficient but friendly service.

    Recommended by our nearby hotel, and well done to them! Apparently quite new. Very nice decor and Indian Bollywood movies on big screens (in case you get bored with your companion, I suppose). Anyway, creates a good atmosphere.Service was very good, and friendly without being a pain in the neck. Good range on the menu, without going to the...

  • Groovy tunes, okay food

    It wasn't very special. Kind of a loungy place filled with posers TRYING to be trendy. Cowboy boots and daisy dukes shouldn't be allowed unless you live on a farm.At least it's good for people watching. =) I had the basic steak and veggies, i asked for rare and got well done. But i hear that's typical Irish cuisine.To be honest, nothing really...

It seemed like a very "franchisy" place but hell... i wanted Indian food and off we went.The restaurant was bustling and it smelled FANTASTIC!The service was excellent, the wine list was impressive and it was the best Indian I've ever had. We ordered the king prawns, chicken tikka masala, lamb khorma...

  • Great "snugs"

    This bar has "Private" booths or "Snugs" as they call them. It is hard to get a private snug, I suggest making a reservation. It is not impossible however to get one without a reservation. We just walked in, waited about 10 minutes and one became available. Great atmosphere and good beer. A must for anyone who wants a drink after walking the...

  • Dragons Tongue Bread SUPREME - to die...

    Small family restaurant which is always busy. It is BYO - costing £0.30 corkage for beer and £1.50 for wine. You cannot book but it is on a first come first served basis - it will seat around 50 people.Pizzas, pasta and salad but cooked with great fresh food and to a very high quality. For a 12 inch pizza expect to pay around £13.You can share a 12...

    it is dark inside, the windows are draped with a kind of dark chiffon, so you cannot see inside from the street. It is nicely lit, the staff are well-informed and pleasant. I liked it. We went early to take advantage of the pre-theatre menu, 2 courses for £12 or 3 for £15.50.This is one Belfast's top celeb restaurants btw. The co-owner, Paul...

    The sandwich bar / cafe is an institution in Belfast. It services the commercial world around Belfast's dockland - no mean feat. It delivers, in unprententious style, a range of sandwiches unparalled in Northern Ireland. Combine this with the earthy friendliness of the voluble, attractive counter staff and you've got the perfect mix of Belfast...

    The Northern Whig is in Belfast City Centre, in the Cathedral quarter. Best described as a stylish neo-classic bar, an award winning 150 seat restaurant serving cosmopolitan cuisine to the up and coming city slickers, a window fronted coffee bar, to watch the world go by and an 80 seat mezzanine floor. The restaurant offers a bottle of wine and 3...

  • Authentic pub w/ delicious food

    This ornately decorated pub had a great atmosphere and amazing food. During our trip, some days we would just go to McDonalds in order to save money on food (horrible, I know). However, the prices at the Crown Liquor Saloon were equilavent to a value meal at McDonalds, and the food was delicious! The portions were generous and quite tasty. In...

  • Pizza to go!

    Little Italy is great! Just join the queue and get your Pizza to go - this is quite a small takeaway Pizza Place, and is a real favourite with the staff of the nearby Opera House, or people coming out of the pubs on the Golden Mile. I always meet people from all over the place in that queue, great pizzas at good prices. I have met a lot of people...

    We usually visit the Cafe Renoir on Botanic Avenue, although there is the original cafe in the city centre. The Botanic restaurant is divided in two - one side a cafe/restaurant serving a wde variety of food and the other serving pizzas baked in a wood oven. The pizzas are not your traditional type but there are some very nice and unusual...

  • Nice Italian food.

    Recommended. Although I am disappointed they destroyed a beautiful Victorian end terrace house (the last privately occupied house on the street) in order to build the restaurant, the new building is in keeping with the style of the other buildings along Botanic. Outside, it looks similar to the Victorian it replaced; inside, it has an open feel...
