Always a pleasure to come here. Great food which caters for wide range incl vegetarians, gluten-intolerant and others. Tapas starters are great and varied. Better vegetarian food than most similar end restaurants in belfast, often slightly more unusual or quirky choices - never disappoints. Fish and meat selections spot on and desserts consistently good. Staff incredibly attentive. On recent visit... More

We had a family get together here and were very impressed by the service and especially the menu. There were 8 in our party and we all had excellent food. The tapas were a great starter for everyone to share. There was plenty to choose from for mains and desserts too!!

Awesome atmosphere with amazing steak. The steak was tender and yummy which came with fat chips. The staff were friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal here. Recommended for all ages. I cannot recommend the Barking Dog highly enough!!

I cannot recommend the Barking Dog highly enough for being a great place for private dining. I was charged with organising a retirement do and we booked the upstairs private room. Twenty seven of us sat down at three big tables and had a wonderful meal from a dinner menu that had five options as a main course. There was... More

This was my first visit to the Barking Dog and it certainly will not be my last. My Girlfriend had specific dietary requirements and the staff were only too helpful to make the meal any way in which she wished, they were extremely helpful and the food was fantastic! I had the Beef Shin Burger and it was delicious, but... More

This was our second visit to the Barking Dog. Once again the food was so very tasty and the atmosphere was so comfortable with an elegant edge. We had three tapas starters. I think we could have had all of them. Each one a tasty and delicious mouthful. The pork belly was my favourite. We then had two variations of... More

I always visit the Barking Dog any time I visit Belfast and it does not disappoint. Their beef shin burger is always fantastic, as are the cocktails and desserts. Visited over the Christmas break with my family and they were very impressed too. Can't wait to go back.
