Good food day and night...

Bennett's is lovely for breakfast/brunch/lunch or dinner. The staff are really friendly and the interior is really nice - during the day it is nice and bright and 'cafe'-like and at night it is transformed in to a bustling bistro with more atmospheric lighting and candles. My partner and I have... read more

Bennetts menu is always varied with their daily specials and no matter what you choose / fish in a delicious chive sauce/ turkey dinner/ beef stroganoff/ lamb - it is cooked to perfection. A real gem in East Belfast.

Went for breakfast this morning. The waitress took our order and returned promptly with tea and coffee. The coffee was lukewarm and was finished long before the food arrived 25 minutes later. I had ordered Eggs Florentine with Parma Ham (prompted by a favourable reveiw I had read on Tripadvisor). The eggs were overcooked and the parma ham was missing... More

Popped in for a late meal and was greeted by delightful staff who offered us a terrific evening deal. We had two courses and a glass of wine for £12.95. Food was beautiful and service impeccable. Definitely worth a visit. We will make it a regular haunt. Not unlike a London style experience!

Very reasonably priced and lots of food on the plate which I always love, very tasty too. Only let down was 2 young waitresses. Neither really seemed to know what... More

Children free on a Sunday morning and a couple of hours to ourselves we headed back to Bennett's. From the minute you walk through the door you know you are going to get looked after. Tea and coffee ordered in seconds, food order in and relax..... I normally can not resist a full fry but this time we both went... More
