Great food

Been here a few times and I have to say the service is excellent and the food has always been quite good. They can also cater to large grounds easily.

On my first night I went to the Barking Dog as it was just a couple of yards next to my guesthouse I was staying. The weather was bad, so I decided to go somewhere not so far away. I booked a table and was then seated. The staff is very friendly and it was very busy. Loved the decor.... More

Went here with a friend and the food was just sooooo good. My friend actually said: "this is the best bite of food I've ever tasted" (FYI she got the gnocchi). Both of our main courses were with home made pasta and the sauces were amazing. The food came surprisingly fast after we ordered. Our waiter was very enthusiastic but... More

Had a meal here on a Friday night. Food was good, but the show stoppers were the cocktails and dessert options! They were divine, as someone who loves coffee it is so rare to have it on a menu never mind have more than one option! Really relaxed vibe from the waiting staff which was lovely. Beautiful, thoughtful touches in... More

Nice decor and set up here, fairly welcoming and just starting to fill up as we were early evening visitors. Menu was a bit limited, service grand. We had a selection of tapas to start - all ok, but I felt they lacked a bit of imagination as there were similar sauces and veg on a couple of them. Burger... More

I read about the BD in an article in The Guardian about the best restaurants in Belfast. We were staying around the corner on Eglantine at The Gregory so it was very convenient as well, just a 2 minute walk around the corner. The place is exactly what we wanted. Nice but not pretentious, cozy authentic Irish feel. Here we... More

I dined here last month with a friend, which was the second time in 6 months. Both times were very enjoyable! The staff were very friendly and helpful when we were deciding what to order, and were informative about dishes and drinks which helped us make our division! The food was lovely, as were the cocktails! Will definitely be returning.

Just had a first visit to The Barking Dog and would need to be barking mad not to go back. Loved it. Good buzz, great food and ambience. I liked the decor and the bay windows both sides. Our little window table was just perfect. Can't wait to go back again and happy to add it to our options list... More
