Ryan's is a cute little restaurant on the main Lisburn Road. There is a bar downstairs and restaurant upstairs - I recommend booking if planning a large group or weekend visit as it gets tight. They offer cocktails, full drinks service and a menu that offers any two courses (starter + main or main + dessert) for £10 (steak and... More

six children ate for free, two courses for a tenner for the ten adults, spicy chicken wings for starters are a must, good choice of mains, well cooked and presented, the desserts are so good, service was very good, anything to please the customer, looked after the kids which made the grown ups happy.

On entering the premises (Two adults, 1 child) there was an instant greeting by a friendly barmaid. Upon enquiry for a table she was unsure... More
