The menu doesn't have a huge choice, but what is on there is brilliant. The atmosphere is always nice and relaxed. I've been there a few times for different occasions; visiting family, friends, showing people around belfast etc. I would highly recommend it. And the burger is divine!

I live sixty miles away and I drive here for one of their infamous burgers. The food is just that good. Intimate surrounding and a hit with the locals.

I'm a regular visitor to Belfast on business and must say this quaint little restaurant has always punched above it's weight. The service is fantastic with friendly staff and the food simply speaks for itself. As a creature of habit I usually have the Schin burger (I don't know if I've spelt that right), with chips and a nice cold... More

After a Northern Ireland Fry to many, hungry but not for more stodge, also a bit late in the evening (about 9pm), and looking for something delicate and tasty. Between two we polished off about eight dishes in a meal comprised of tapas and starters. All of the food was beautifully presented and wonderfully flavoured. Wines were available by the... More

Haven't been in a while but we ventured in this direction for lunch recently. Was really impressed with the tapas offering which was good value for money (3 plates for £8), good portion sizes and very tasty. All the ingredients were fresh and well presented Was so impressed we're heading back here this week!

Ate here several times, never disappointed. Finally tried the famous shin burger, it was superb! Sweet potato chips are probably the best I've ever had in a restaurant. The Barking Dog is somewhere I'd always recommend to friends/people visiting Belfast. The atmosphere is top notch and the service matches this. Oh - and the sticky toffee pudding is fab too!...

Ate here Saturday night. From start to finish 65 minutes......Very busy and no gap between courses, food is very nice but just felt rushed, did not feel a relaxing experience we were looking forward to. Wine list and food priced a little on the high side but the food was lovely. There is so much better in Belfast with a... More

First visit today and won't be our last Restaurant highly recommended to us by family and friends so when we were given a gift voucher we were delighted. On arrival there was a chap playing a guitar next to the entrance and our immediate impression was good. When we were ushered upstairs we were initially disappointed as we would have... More
