Restaurant well located and decorated. We went there for a lunch to celebrate my partner's graduation with his family. I loved the food. The portions are smaller than what you would find in other restaurants but you won't be hungry at the end of the meal since the dishes are rich! There are some very creative dishes. I really enjoyed... More

Staff were rude. Complaint was made discreetly. Not handled well at all. Still waiting on a call back from the manager 3 months later. Food was far too salty - couldn't eat some of it. When we asked for no mozzarella as the dish was described "with mozzarella" they took the liberty of replacing this with Parmesan without checking. When... More

It must be 10 years since we were last here and not sure why! There were four in our party and when we arrived the table was ready on time. Most people usually order the same thing when they go out and the food coming out from the kitchen looked looked super but at the bottom of the menu there... More

We visited for a 65th birthday party. Service was excellent and the food was superb. We had lamb, steak, and a fish dish, all our meals were absolutely mouth watering. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if in Belfast.

Have had two enjoyable meals here. Great sized portions and a good selection of dishes on the menu. A stone throw away from the city centre and QUB makes it very handy for diners.

I had been really looking forward to dining here, as had missed out on reservations several times previously. However, the overall feeling is one of disappointment. The food was generally good, the duck starter and lamb main course being stand outs of the night. The steaks were overcooked - one was returned and exchanged, thankfully. We ordered three different glasses... More

My husband and I visited here for an early dinner on a Saturday evening. We have been coming here for many years and it never fails to disappoint. The quality of the food is fantastic and the presentation superb. I had the duck carpaccio to start with which was stunning whilst my husband had the ham hock terrine. We both... More
