Really fresh seafood and good work with everything that is on the plate. For a seafood lover in Belfast, this is a must. We had wonderful oysters Japanese style, really tasty smoked fish and really well cooked fresh scallops. The staff was also really friendly

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and also to reserve because it is small and popular. We wove our way through some back streets to find it, getting a little nervous about the quality of the neighborhood, but arrived at the area and found the restaurant was busy and adjacent to other eating places. The restaurant has a culinary school which... More

We had wonderful seafood in this pretty place. The mussels were a generous portion and delicious. I had a smoked cod that was delicate and not overpowering. My daughter had the seafood casserole and that was fabulous. My husband had salmon but wished he had ordered the casserole. this was the only nice place we found, I would recommend it.... More

It is disappointing to go to such a great seafood restaurant, only to find the oysters are not shucked when you order them. This is the only negative comment. Great menu, great cooking , friendly and helpful service. Highly recommended, but don't order the oysters if you love freshly shucked, alive, unwashed oysters. They need a lesson from the French...

I had recently been sick off of fish, and was a little hesitant to head to a seafood place, but I am so glad that we did. Of course, we did NOT heed any of the recommendations that advised booking a table, but we weren't about to be put off by an hour wait (in fact, we were fairly encouraged-... More

Just a must. If anywhere near Belfast, GO to this venue and enjoy. We 4 had the superb seafood risotto for starters with oysters and smoked salmon, all brilliant. Then 1 lobster (slight moan, only 1 was left, at 8pm on a Friday night) magic megrim (much underrated) and a meaty monkfish. Good sides, no room for dessert, classy Picpoul... More

Booked this table at lunchtime on the day we wanted to dine which was a Tuesday evening. We were told we must order before 8-45 so to come at 8-15 although we had asked for 8-30. This was fine although we were surprised to still see people coming in at 9-30 and getting served. There was a friendly welcome and... More

I visited the Mourne seafood bar with my husband on a Friday at lunch time. It was on a first come first served basis. Luckily we where seated straight away. For starters we both had the cup of chowder which we both agreed was the best we ever had! (£4). For the main course I had the half lobster and... More

I frequently visit Mourne Seafood in Belfast as they are one of the best seafood restaurants in Belfast. It is always busy so that I think says everything about it. I love the fact that you can also buy fresh fish to take home. Other seafood restaurants are opening up so I hope they keep up the standards they have... More

I am lucky enough to have eaten in this lovely restaurant on many occasions and have never been disappointed. On one occasion we were a party of 10 and everybody was totally impressed with the food, my husband especially loved the mussels in korma sauce I just love the oysters especially the one in the Bloody Mary. Service is always... More
