I'd been before for an evening meal and got a downstairs table that was very cramped and right on top of a damned silly conversation going on next door. This time it was lunch and the place was comfortably busy but not bunged.Not the cheapest lunch in town, but if you really do want the best Belfast can do in... More

I stayed at The Old Rectory and they recommended having a meal here. I went down right away to see if I could a table. They were able to accommodate right a 5PM. This meal was fantastic. I had the seafood chowder to start, seafood casserole for entree and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. I paired this with their Mourne... More

The fish here is local from Co. Down, fresh and beautifully cooked. The menu is always varied and interesting, and the restaurant is rustic with a good ambience in summer or winter. The staff are friendly and helpful. We eat here regularly, usually for lunch and have never been disappointed.

Great restaurant with excellent food, but the service was shocking! After the main meal was served we tried to order desert for 20minutes from two members of staff. After repeatedly being ignored we tried to pay the bill and even this seemed difficult for them. Real shame as this could be a lovely restaurant.

We, a group of 3 couples visited this restaurant last night. The restaurant was recommended by 1 of the couples as they had dined here before & had an enjoyable evening. So as it was my husbands birthday and we were visiting Belfast for the night I decided we should dine here based on the recommendation. The table was booked... More

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
