Family lunch

Superb local bistro in East Belfast, reasonably priced with good service and great tasting food. Great for early morning breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Ideal for all types of casual dining.

4 adults and a 7 year old (birthday girl) booked for a meal at 6.30. The menu read well and we ordered with anticipation. Sadly, the food was not up to the standard expected. I had monkfish cheeks. 4 pieces - each the size of a 50 pence piece. It is the first time I have ever had to chew... More

Called in this morning for Brunch with my daughter. They brought out our hot drinks quickly but we waited another 40minutes for our food by this time we had both finished our drinks. The food was at best ok I won't be rushing back.

Met here with an old school friend on her suggestion. For that reason only the staff were not made aware of my disgust at the quality of the food served. I ordered a lamb burger. It really was poor. Very rubbery texture and not home made. I suspect it had been pre cooked and microwaved for too long. It was... More

I was looking forward to trying this attractive restaurant but I will not be back. Whilst the menu and specials were extensive and sounded tempting the food lacked presentation, creativity and taste. The plaice special was grey.... especially the potatoes. The fish pie was heavy on cream and cheese, light on actual fish. The chips appeared to be the dregs... More

My boyfriend and I decided to treat ourselves to dinner out. After having difficulty deciding what to order I went for the mussels and my boyfriend got the Hake. Big big mistake. The Hake was tasteless the sauce was lukewarm and the plate cold. The mussels I could smell before they arrived and not in a good way. Try imaging... More

Lunch with friends, lots of things to choose from on the menu - made it a bit difficult because I wanted them all! Good value, good quantities of food and really tasty. Service was excellent, friendly and helpful staff. Definitely recommend.

Always a great welcome and an ever changing and delicious menu - what's not to like? Everything from breakfast to dinner and all inbetween - love the offers and friendly atmosphere

Very easy going casual dining but quality food well prepared.Especially recommend the breakfasts where they use top quality ingredients and they are perfectly balanced unlike the traditional greasy old Belfast fry up.There are free newspaper and the only downside is that parking outside is always a challenge
