much better food and service available elsewhere in Belfast

I was looking forward to eating in Beatrice Kennedys but was dissapointed with three things: 1) The food which was average at best and more like good pub grub than fine dining 2) The decor was stiff and old fastioned with not a hint of class or trend 3) I found the manager (Tom I think his... read more

Another terrible experience at Beatrice Kennedy. Greasy fries, cod with soggy skin, overcharged for lunch and waitress rude when we found the 'wrong' menu. Lots of better places in Belfast.

The food is good and the service also. There's nothing wrong but that little something that makes a restaurant spectacular is not there. Four out of five stars.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and always enjoyed it. However, the best experience I've had so far was a meal last night with my wife - it was excellent. I had a duck starter and the special for main which was a venison, both were excellent and cooked to perfection. My wife had lamb meatballs for starter... More

We ate dinner here twice on a recent trip to Belfast. Both nights the meal and the ambience were wonderful. The staff was accommodating, helpful, and friendly but never hovering. There was a whole vegetarian menu in addition to the regular dinner menu so we were spoiled for choice. We were pleased with all our food selections but I think... More

After an afternoon at the Lyric Theatre where we saw a superb production of the play "Death of a Comedian" we thought that we would treat ourselves to dinner at Beatrice Kennedy`s which is very close to the Lyric. The restaurant is in a convenient location, the staff are excellent and the menu while not being very extensive is OK.... More

My partner and I had a meal at this restaurant on Friday 20th February 2014. I would like to start by commending the staff, who were very friendly and professional. But I’m afraid the food was not up to standard. I had the duck confit followed by steak. The duck was advertised as ‘crispy’, I would describe it more as... More

Beatrice's was a last minute booking after our usual Queen's Quarter eatery was unable to accommodate us. We had always been wary of dining at Beatrice's as its small appearance led us to believe it would lack the social buzz one expects in evening dining. Well, our fears were put to rest on entering, the deceptively spacious interior was catering... More

Been to BK a few times over the years , it always delivers. Went for pre theatre this time, good and varied choice and good value. Staff very attentive without being intrusive. Two minor points, the table for two we had is just a tad too small, we had same last time too. Early evening its still a bit draughty... More

We decided to try the 5 course blind taster menu for a great price of £35 each, whilst opting for our own wine. What a fantastic menu, the food was perfectly cooked and the combination of textures and flavours were wonderful. The meal started with slices of wheaten bread, soft and most. Next, the two starters which included a lovely... More
