We were sure that we would give this place a try and were happy we did. We walked in and asked if we had booked (we virtually never do) and said no. We were happily welcomed and directed to the tables against the back wall. We were happy at this as there are two rows of tables the ones to... More

I try to get to the mourne seafood bar at least a couple of times a year when I am in Belfast. This visit did not disappoint. It is a simple wee place & I love that you still have to walk through the fish shop out front to get to the restaurant! Whoever picks the staff has a good... More

We stayed 2 days in Belfast and we liked so much this restaurant that we decided spend all our meals there. Chowder was the best I ever had, usually since in this case the cream flavour didn't overtake the fish one. I loved the freshness of their oysters au naturel and definetely their salmon with crabcake. Fish soup was good... More

Really lovely restaurant which I will visit every time I visit Belfast as it always serves delicious seafood dishes. We particularly enjoyed the Japanese style oysters with our bottle of Sancerre.

I've been coming to Belfast for years with family and it's really nice to see so many great restaurants appearing in recent years. This is one of them. I found the food great and reasonably priced for decent, fresh seafood. There was plenty of choice with both a regular menu and an extensive specials, presumably based on the recent catch.... More

One of the best restaurants in Belfast. Definitely worth visiting when in this city. There were 6 of us and every course was excellent. Service is perfect- friendly & knowledgeable yet unobtrusive. The atmosphere is warm and cosy. Seafood is of a high standard and cooked to perfection- can't wait to make another booking.

Fantastic starter with the Chowder then the Cod was cooked to a treat, definitely worth eating their. Even took our suitcases/ bags out the way so we could enjoy the meal. Staff were very attentive and knew the food they were serving. San Francisco was the last place I would rate as highly but even then The Mourne wins.

Our dinner at Mourne Seafood was one of the best of our trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. The seafood was amazingly fresh, prepared perfectly, and the service couldn't have been better. We sat next to two locals who are both in the restaurant business, and both are regular customers, saying this is one of Belfast's best. This restaurant is... More

Went for the last sitting on a Friday evening & the place was packed with tourists and romantic couples. The decor is dark and service friendly, both creating an intimate welcoming atmosphere. I had high expectations of the seafood based on rave reviews online but was disappointed with the overdone chilli squid as starter.( not recommended) The mains fish dish... More
