Good

Food was very good and our waitress was equally good possibly French? The only thing was we went in at 5.30 only 2 others in and we were seated right next to them.... Our chairs nearly touched would have preferred a little more space... Also nice cheese board but def not enough crackers

This is a lovely little place in an interesting part of Belfast close to the Botanic gardens and the University. It was recommended by our b&b hostess and lived up to expectations. The fish pie is the best in Ireland - and the tapas full of good ideas [and fresh fish...] I'd go every week if I didn't have to... More

We had dinner here with some friends. We didn't book as was a Tuesday evening bit I was surprised how busy it was. We had a lovely meal and the staff were all very helpful and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

The food was delicious, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We needed a table for two and though we didn't have a reservation, they were able to seat us with no problem. Compared to the huge portions served up in American restaurants, the plates were refreshingly small, but with plenty of food to fill you up. Being our... More

Went with a group of friends for a birthday meal. We were crowded round a table that was too small, it wasn't exactly a comfortable dining experience! I asked for a vegetarian menu as one wasn't provided, ordered from this and everyone e else ordered from the main meat menu. The food was brought out to everyone at the table... More

Booked in advance knowing it would be busy - and it was! Menu is smaller than a lot of restaurants I've been to but what is lacking in quantity makes up in quality and taste. Not in the city centre but don't let that detract from it's university quarter location as there are plenty of hostelries in all directions and... More

We had three small tapas dishes to share - very tasty and a nice way to start the meal. The monkfish special incorporated interesting vegetables and flavours. The fish was slightly over cooked but not enough to spoil a nice dish. Excellent espresso.

Returned to Belfast after a few years of being away and was recommended the barking dog as restaurant choices are limited on Sundays. The venue itself is fun and isn't too stuffy. We had a table for 7 and there was plenty of room for all our drinks and various dishes. This type of restaurant does seem to have become... More
