Description: Set in an imposing historic building on Belfast’s central Victoria Street, Malmaison is an ultra contemporary, ultra chic, urban retreat. The team behind Malmaison know that hotels aren’t just a place for sleeping, which is why a lot of thought and bags of style have gone in to the resident Brasserie, a hot spot in its own right. With its modernist feel the dining room has hints of 30s deco in its attractive black and red interior. Curved booths and luxurious upholstery are joined by sleek wood and low lighting while service is friendly yet unobtrusive. Two menus – one the simple brasserie menu, the other home grown and local – celebrate the best of Ireland’s ingredients while offering food which appeals to all palates.

We went to Malmaison last night as a group of 14 people celebrating a 21st birthday. On first arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff who were very helpful as we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. Once they had all arrived we got settled with the selection of menus and starting deciding what to order.... More

Just called into Malmaison for a drink. Got talking to one of the bartenders 'Orla', very welcoming and a credit to the hotel. Was trying to make my mind up where to eat when she suggested to try the Steak & Lobster. I thought why not and what an amazing dish it was! Fresh cut steak along with fresh lobster... More

Went here for Sunday brunch/lunch and unfortunately left feeling pretty underwhelmed. Starting with the positives - service was good, interesting menu concept with 'help yourself' starters at the chef's table, the range of salads, cooked meats, etc was excellent. The down side - no access to plates so had to wait around for the chef to return - not sure... More

The food is very well prepared with fresh ingredients and a lot of thought goes into the presentation. All the meals were well balanced and full of the flavour. The wine we had was amazing (French Sauvignon around £35 a bottle). Menu is a bit pricey but definitely worth it. Better value if you get dinner included with a room... More

We ate at the restaurant for dinner, and booked Malmaison as a treat, however the restaurant really disappointed us. Both our mains were very awkwardly flavoured (I have no other way of putting it). I ordered the Risotto and it was incredibly bland, whilst my partner ordered the double chicken with Thai salad, which was virtually inedible. The deserts are... More

We recently dined at The Malmaison and I have to say I was extremely disappointed. We were seated at our table for over 30 mins waiting for someone to come take our order - the wine ordered arrived after our starters, and again we had another 20+ wait for our dessert order to be taken. The food was average -... More

Service was good, but food not so good, could be better considering what there is in Belfast. The menu said chargrilled chicken, but when it was served it had never seen a chargrill and this was admitted by the restaurant manager, saying they do not have a chargrill facility so it was just put under the grill...not the same, Chicken...

having stayed at the Malmaison we thought we'd get a quick dinner on site. The steak was lovely, service top notch. I ordered a caesar salad which was massive but could've done with being a little less rustic. All in all a nice evening though
