It would be unfair to give Bennett's just three stars, it's better than that, but it bordered on very good. It's comfortable and welcoming, very nicely decorated, light, very unfussy, with some great original posters and is immediately comfortable rather than luxurious, and welcoming. The menu is wide-ranging, with a blackboard of specials. I had haddock with mixed vegetables and... More

Had a great lunch here at the weekend, all day dining at the weekend is just great. The menu is really varied and creative - clearly a very competent kitchen, judging by the presentation and quality of the dishes we enjoyed and spied going to the other tables. I had the fish special whilst my dining companion had the mother... More

I absolutely love this place as does an army of regular clientele. Whether I call in for a coffee and a home-made bun, or for a full slap-up meal, I am confident of first-class food, a warm welcome with attentive, but not cloying service. The place has a lovely Bohemian feel to it and the good value full menu (breakfast,... More

We had dinner here before attending The Elvis Spectacular at the Strand cinema. The service was good without being obtrusive. We had mains ( fish and chips, belly of pork, veggie burger and beef burger. ) All were great , generous portions and home made chips. Only one diner had room for dessert (sticky toffee pudding) which looked and smelled... More

Service wasnt great. The girl took our order and the food a arrived about 35-40 mins later. Food was very dissapointing, lump of pork belly and a splodge of what can only be described as Smash with some tastless crispy onions. £10.50. My partner had a plain chicken breast covered in what I think was pesto ,two portobello mushrooms and... More

Called in here last week on way home from an early Belfast appointment!! Was just before lunch so we were still able to order breakfast. Large, very nicely decorated restaurant, attentive staff without being overly intrusive!! My Dad had the Fry, which came with great big thick butchers sausages, which just made his day!! I had the Scrambled Egg, Toast... More

Great food, great service, really lovely local restaurant. The daily specials are always a treat and the desserts are to die for.

Food was good but not as much as I had expected as this bistro comes well recommended. The chicken with mozzarella just needed a little extra flavouring. My friend had lamb and portion size was a bit small. Delicious chips! Staff were friendly and helpful. Good value. I would definitely try it again.

Knowing that a reservation was not required, we called in on the way home from Dublin. We were both very hungry as neither had time to eat lunch.We were disappointed with the daily specials which on previous visits had been very good, so we both ordered gourmet style burgers. These were large thick rounds of dry tasteless meat and the... More

The food is great, but the staff make this place. They genuinely care about giving you the best possible experience. As a result, the majority of their customers are regulars. The decor is fresh and modern. For good value and unpretentious food in East Belfast it's a must
