Northern Ireland Restaurants

  • The Potted Hen

    Belfast Restaurants

    Believe it or not, this was my 2nd choice restaurant the night I found myself here. I knew that it was an award winning restaurant with great reviews, but I had noticed another nearby restaurant that I wanted to try. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I had to work late and the other place had stop serving customers. I then went inside the Potted Hen...

  • The Nook

    Antrim Restaurants

    Our stop at Giants Causeway was our only chance to get lunch so we decided to grab something at this little restaurant just in front of the visitors centre before actually heading to the Causeway itself. Obviously its a bit more pricey given its a touristy place with few other choices (the nearby hotel also does food I believe) but we all really...

  • Beatrice Kennedy's.

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Belfast Restaurants

    I really like this intimate restaurant. It’s located in the converted Victoria-era home of Beatrice Kennedy and her physician husband. In fact I had a very hard time finding this place in the dark as it just blends in with the other large residential houses around it. Inside is a narrow, but cosy well decorated interior. The staff are all young...

  • Conor

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Belfast Restaurants

    Before I booked the Connor Café, I had no idea that it’s the former studio of an artist (William Connor 1881- 1968) and that it still displays his art inside the bright and cheerful restaurant. I am always wary of any place advertising that their food is artistic (read – any French Restaurant). When I eat at a restaurant – I wish to do just that –...

  • Shed Bistro

    Belfast Restaurants

    This bistro was recommended by our Airbnb hosts as being the best place to eat near our apartment. It was a really handy 5 min walk from our apartment and, as we arrived right around dinner time, a great choice for our first night in Belfast. It was a little fancier menu & more expensive than my usual pub grub budget but if you can't treat...

  • Cayenne

    4 out of 5 stars

    Belfast Restaurants

    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.

  • Fast food

    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...

  • Bishops Fish & Chips

    4 out of 5 stars

    Belfast Restaurants

    Bishops is a Belfast institution. Although it was only founded in 1991. it has an old world feel to it. They do make very good chips. Big proper chips. I found this place after a little bit of pub hopping in the nearby area. I was very surprised and pleased to see that they had lots of sauces to put on the chips. I tried the peppercorn sauce and...

  • The Other Place

    4 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • Belfast Pubs

    3 out of 5 stars

    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

    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...

Anyway you think is proper; have it your way… (Chorus) Have it your way, have it your way! At Burger King, eat at Burger King!” Established in the USA in 1954,...

  • Maggie Mays

    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...

  • Lunch at the Causeway

    The chill wind and hail combined with the physical exercise of climbing over the basalt rocks of Giant's Causeway gave us a healthy appetite for lunch and the wish to have something hot to drink. Lucky for us that the Visitor Center here was a full service facility with a cafe and large seating area. The cafe offers a few choices of hot meals such...

  • JUST BAD IN ARMAGH

    Sadly this below average joint is open 7 days a week. The good people of Armagh do not have a lot of choice for Indian food and sadly a few locals think this place is great. It is not. I love a recent review by someone that said, yes, it looks a bit derelict inside. It does. And it’s cold. The staff seemed dodgy to me. My starter, supposedly a...

  • Another Dining Option

    An alternative to the cafe in the Giant's Causeway Visitors Center is the "Nook at Giant's Causeway." I first noticed the attractive little building as we enter the parking lot at the Visitors Center, but as I didn't see any activity there, I thought it might be closed. Shame, because the photos on several websites show that it seems to be a nice...

  • 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,...

  • Fancy a posh meal?

    The food in here is amazing. It's a Michelin star restaurant, owned by N.Irelands very own Michael Deane. He also has several other venues under his name (my other favourite is Deanes at Queens which is slightly cheaper than the main restaurant)The main Deanes restaurant is located in Belfast City Centre. There is a section dedicated entirely to...

  • Fabulous Dessert

    We braved the strong winds to return to our bus after visiting the Giant's Causeway but we were a touch early so we pulled into the highly recommended pub (by the bus driver). Not being drinkers and having had lunch previously at the tea rooms we decided on trying a dessert. We got two peach crumbles drowned in homemade custard for 7 pounds. What a...

  • Meat Feast & Veggies Delight

    Mexican Food is something which isn't too easy to come by in Belfast. However, Boojum recently opened and I'm a huge fan. It's a modern place situated in the university area; near to Queens University. I haven't had a bad experience to date. The staff are both friendly and helpful. The only problem with it is that it's a small eatery so there's not...

  • Quirky & Out Of The Ordinary!

    This place is only a few years old and it's one of the most interesting places to eat in Belfast. It's hidden away in a not so pretty side street yet is a real hidden gem. What makes it so out of the ordinary is the interior. The word vintage springs to mind, with mix-matched furniture, spray painted patterns on the walls, artsy frames with...

  • Zen

    The thing that strikes me most about Zen, other than the delicious food of course, is the interior design. Japanese decoration with a modern twist. I love how they have created atmosphere through their use of creative lighting.The tables are all nicely spaced apart, so even if it's not busy (although it usually is, especially at the weekend!) which...

  • Simple but good food-Great View

    After being windswept and needing a break to fill up and warm up the National Trust tea rooms were a popular and simple but tasty choice. We had tea, sandwiches and scones for 2 for under 10 pounds. Nothing fancy but good all the same.

  • Poor pun, but good modern cafes

    I enjoyed a nice little breakfast at the Bangor branch of this Northern Irish chain of Cafes. They now have about thirty branches, with a branch or two in the republic and plans for a chain in Scotland.They seem a good choice, even if my latte was little late arriving. I guess the fact they were rushed off their feet shows that there fare is...

  • Excellent Hot Chocolate

    So their beverages are excellent, from milkshakes of any sort right down to their AMAZING hot chocolate and ever popular coffee. I love this place and always take my friends there if they've never been in Belfast. Sit in and have a hot chocolate and get all the toppings (hey, you're on holiday after all!) They serve it in a bowl, simply pick it up...

  • Simply tasty!

    Well, if you're from Italy this might not be as impressive, however I think this is the nicest Italian restaurant in Belfast (Although I've heard Villa Italia is also great). Scalini serves a wide range of Italian food and is popular largely with couples. It's a nice place for a romantic dinner for two and the dress is generally smart/casual....

  • It's comfortable!

    Roast is a nice place to stop into if you've had a days shopping or sightseeing in Belfast. It's just a normal coffee shop with very comfy sofas. I enjoy popping in here with friends for a chat over a cup of coffee, hot chocolate, a smoothie.... They sell food also such as sandwiches, sausage rolls and paninis. It isn't high cuisine cooking or...

  • Situated in the University Area

    An ideal spot to enjoy a relaxing meal. A meal for two including a bottle of the house wine is about £60. You can enjoy home cooking in a Victorian setting and is mainly European and sometimes has Asian influences. Try their homemade bread and ice creams!

They say that if you are lucky (or unlucky), you may even meet a ghost of Grace.There are 4 sections inside Grace Neills, Front Bar, Library Bar, Lounge bar, and restaurant. The Front Bar has a charm of old pub with low ceiling, and decorated...

Anything from Coleslaw and cheese on the potato to the traditional fish and chips.... or baked potato filled with chicken in pepper sauce, lasagne and 'slaw or bacon, cabbage & mash to take away or eat in at their tiny metal tables... Nice spot for a quick filling meal.... Ummm, the 'slaw and...

  • Right in the City Centre

    Great food - A very diverse menu with anything from pastas to pan-asian dishes. Convenient location as it is only steps away from city hall. The atmosphere was relaxed yet busy enough to keep it interesting.
