We shared a dinner with my brother and his wife. We all had the steak but each had it cooked differently. Each course came at a nice pace - we were neither waiting nor were we rushed. The staff were lovely the ambience was great too but what a lovely view ofBelfast Lough and the city at night.

The dinner was on a menu selection base and really really good and fine cuisine. We were scared at the start from the prices, which turned to... More

The country park surrounding the castle is so relaxing and walking up to the building it looked amazing. Loved the detail in the stone and all of the windows. Enjoyed reading and learning the history of the place. Wished I'd come in the summer to see the garden in bloom

I went with friends to the Cellar restaurant at belfast castle for Christmas lunch. I had the traditional turkey dinner and trimmings. All was served hot and was very tasty. It cost £35 for 2 which I thought reasonable. The castle is set in beautiful grounds overlooking the city. It's a pleasant place to take the family for walks with... More

I have had a couple of meals here and they very quite good. The place is very historic with a very impressive approach up to the castle. This time it was a meeting and a few snacks. It would be an excellent wedding venue.

A good place to go to for a walk or a meal. The views for the castle gardens are very relaxing & you can also have fun trying to find all of the nine hidden cats sprinkled in & around the grounds as well. The restaurant in the castle cellar is great for a bite to eat depending on what... More

Attended a wedding reception at the Castle a few days ago..The grounds are quite extensive and well maintained. The Castle itself is very impressive, and well preserved. The driveway up to the Castle is long and winding. Parking can be a problem. The food served at the reception was excellent, as was the service. There is a small cellar type... More
