Good food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff

Eat with my vegan daughter and she was happy to see vegan options however the vegan starter was sold out on the night we were there although it was only 8 30.luckily the soup was vegan. She also would have liked a vegan desert. My meat and fish courses were very good. A little pricey but maybe that... read more

We've been to Simon's restaurant a few times (even in its previous life on Ormeau Road). The food was, as always, excellent, it has a great buzz inside and the staff were very welcoming. Thoroughly recommended.

We went on a Saturday night with no booking, but the friendly staff found us a seat on the large round table, which we shared later on. Even though the restaurant was full, the service and food was really good and we had a lovely evening. It was recommended by friends, and we're pleased they did.

We visited this place for lunch and there was a lot of choice on a number of menus put in front of us. The food was very nice and those having the steaks raved about it. There was no set lunch menu and therefore the bill was more than we thought we'd pay about Belfast. The food is great and... More

A lovely cosy restaurant recommended by John, a taxi driver. I started with tea smoked duck with mango and salad. Beautiful! My SO had mussels and chorizo which was also lovely. We both had the sea bass with prawns for mains and we were both happy with our choice. We chose a nice bottle of French Chablis. Great music subtly... More

I have been checking the Ginger Bistro out for ages on Trip Advisor. I should have come sooner. The photo's on the site don't the place justice. The decor is wonderful a mixture of utilitarian and comfy. The staff laid back but so professional, brilliant thanks to you all. As for the food. I would struggle to find sufficient superlatives....

My wife and I went here for our wedding anniversary on a recommendation. The decor and lighting were very nice and there seemed to be a lovely crowd in - lots of couples and mature groups. The 2 waitresses who served us were excellent all night - pleasant, professional and informative. To start I had squid and my wife had... More

We had a family birthday meal in Ginger, booked for 7 people which included my baby niece. The staff were great about my niece, but she was unbelievably well behaved and didn't utter a peep the whole time. We got a table right at the bar (my head was under the bar shelf), once the manager spotted my brother in... More
