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....

The Barking Dog ticks all the boxes in my list. A really good gastropub, good location, quirky design, great staff, good wine by the glass and ....really good food. Quality of cooking and presentation are excellent, and the diversity of the menu gives a good choice for all. The variety ranges from Tapas to set meals to a la carte.... More

This restaurant stands out. It has a very interesting and creative menu with lots of choices. Great atmosphere. Good service. Food was beautifully presented and quite simply delicious. The prices may well reflect the quality but for a treat this place, well worth a visit.

Our second visit - still good. Show that everything I said before was consistent. Very relaxing even after a very tiring day at work! Brilliant customer services ; smiling faces ; attentive. Soup served with house-baked bread - tasty, full of flavour. Scampi - average, bit too much batter. Their burger is still the best with the crispy, chunky chips!... More

Went here for a post graduation meal. The restaurant was very busy but the service was fast, attentive and appropriate. The food was lovely - two of the party had the shin burgers which were cooked to their requirements. The desserts were delicious and the selection just enough. I would definately return here.

We were reommended this restaurant by our concierge and it was wonderful! It's got a wonderful, rustic-chic atmosphere and the food is great! The butternut squash and parmesean soup was wonderful, but the real show shopper was the burger! It was absolutely delicious!!!! I was full but I just kept eating it beacuse I could not stop!
