Overpriced and disappointing. Myself and my friend ordered two salads and one side of sweet potato fries which was was mediocre at best and were charged almost £30. The Caesar salad was drenched in dressing, the chicken was processed meat (not something you would expect for the price of £13) and the summer salad was mostly leaves with a tart... More

Im gonna start by saying dont judge this place from the outside. The interior is quirky and amazing. The food is something else. Best meal I've had that hasnt been cooked at home :). Service was also outstanding. Geraldine our waitress downstairs was helpful and down to earth. She was able to have a laugh but also very professional (I... More

Great atmosphere. Best beef tartare I've had in ages. Friendly, attentive staff. The mix between tapas and larger plates was perfect. Sad I didn't have more time to return before I left the city.

I really enjoyed "the Barking Dog". It was very accessible from our hotel. The ambience was very good and food delicious. The waiters were most helpful in helping us decide on meal choices. And prices were very reasonable for the quality we received. I'd recommend for sure!

Nice surroundings. Food good. Service fine. Only one minor comments - it's not necessary to put added salt onto the chips that go with a child's meal. Been a few times and enjoyed each one. Recommended.

Starting with a selection of tapas we were in love with the beef bites with soy sauce. I had the burger and it was Devine! Cocktails were also great. Try the Italian mojito it's a winner! Lovely, genuine staff and happy atmosphere. Hope to go back again.... And again...

I went to Barking Dog for the first time in late June 2014. We went back again in early July! On the first occasion we had tapas to start, which were all lovely (goats cheese, pork belly, beef brisket, chick pea fritters). For main we had cod and pork belly both of which were yummy. We were too full to... More

My daughter and I (she from Glasgow, I from Dublin) met here for lunch last week. It was her choice and a good one. On a wet day in Belfast it was a welcoming, well set-up bistro-style place to shelter from the downpours and be made welcome by the friendly staff and, more importantly, by the excellent lunch it provided....
