Northern Ireland Restaurants

  • Kelly's Cellars

    4 out of 5 stars

    Belfast Restaurants

    Kelly's Cellars is probably the oldest pub in Belfast. Housed in a building dating from 1720 (originally Kelly's Wine Stores) it's a 'proper' pub...with flagstones, black beams and friendly barstaff. And traditional music most evenings as well. It was famous as a meeting place of the United Irishmen in the 1790s....and that one of their leaders...

  • Stables Tea Room

    Enniskillen Restaurants

    We had booked ourselves on a tour of FlorenceCourt and had limited time but I was a wee bit hungry so stopped into the Stables Tea Room for a quick bite before the tour. There are sandwiches, coffee, tea, and desserts at the Tea Room. I opted for an Egg Salad sandwich with some salad and a coffee. It was good, but as I had only a short window of...

  • Stir - Maldron House Hotel

    Derry/Londonderry Restaurants

    As previously mentioned we only spent one night in Derry and unfortunately, time was limited. Therefore, dinner had been arranged for us at our hotel in the Stir Restaurant just off the lobby. The decor and atmosphere of the Restaurant was rather casual. We were dining in a group and I believe the menu we were offered was probably tailored for...

  • 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...

  • Thyme - Premier Inn Belfast City

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Belfast Restaurants

    I don't usually eat at my hotel but I was tired, didn't want much to eat and really couldn't be bothered to explore further. I've eaten at 'Thyme' (the Premier Inn in-hotel restaurants) at other UK Premier Inns and have always found the food to be of decent quality and reasonably-priced. This 'Thyme' is no exception. The main course menu at the...

  • The Diamond Pub

    Derry/Londonderry Restaurants

    I just came here for a beer. I still checked the menu and noticed that main courses cost 4,49£-6,99£. Didn´t eat there because I just had dinner elsewhere. Pint of beer and pint of cider cost together 3,80£. Prices 08/2006.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Knife & Fork Grill

    Belfast Restaurants

    We were staying at the Malone Lodge and our stay included a buffet breakfast. We headed downstairs to the Knife & Fork Grill to see what was available for breakfast. I must say I was impressed with the selection. You order your hot food from the menu, then they have juice, coffee, tea, milk on the bar. There is a large bread selection, and...

  • 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 –...

  • Wetherspoons

    Belfast Restaurants

    Having struck out at the Madison's Hotel we decided on Wetherspoons for dinner. There are plenty of options on the menu. I opted for the steak sandwich with chips. It was tasty enough. I will say that I found it odd that you had to look at the menu, then go up to the register area to place your order. Then someone delivers your order to your...

  • 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.

  • Bobbin Coffee Shop

    Belfast Restaurants

    It was not until about 3pm when our City Hall tour ended, and we were famished not having had anything to eat since breakfast. Since it was so convenient for us to call in at The Bobbin Coffee Shop right on the ground floor of City Hall, we thought we’d give it a try. The Bobbin occupied a large room filled with tables, and the smaller, L-shaped...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Byblos

    Belfast Restaurants

    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...

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 2Taps Winebar

    Belfast Restaurants

    2Taps Winebar is on the same street as the Premier Inn where I was staying so I decided to eat there one evening. I'd noticed it was pretty busy on previous nights and also noticed that the outdoor seating had heaters. Although I visited in August, those heaters were much appreciated! The bar offers a good selection of well-priced tapas-style...

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,...

  • The Chip Company

    Belfast Restaurants

    The Chip Co is a gourmet fish and chip Bar. There are no seats but on either side of the store are two long stand up bar areas to eat your order, if you don't want to eat there, you're welcome to take it home with you. That is what I did when I went there for my supper. The first time I went I ordered fish and chips and took it back to my hotel...

  • Fitzwilliam Hotel

    Belfast Restaurants

    As it had been a long day and it was our last night in Belfast, we decided to "stay in" and have a light dinner at The Bar at the Fitzwilliam Hotel. The Bar has a cozy, sophisticated decor and atmosphere featuring a long bar with high-back chairs, small seating arrangements lit by candlelight for cocktails, as well as more quiet booth tables for...

  • Robinson's Bar

    Belfast Restaurants

    As previously mentioned, our guide had suggested visiting Robinson's Bar as it was his favorite place for a tipple in Belfast. As luck would have it, there were two open seats at the ornate, wooden bar so we made ourselves at home. After we each ordered a new local beer to sample, a friendly local struck up a conversation with us and we spent a...

  • 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...

    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...
