Had a business lunch here. Lovely atmosphere. Lots of parking nearby (max 2hrs) and enjoyed a gorgeous pasta with chilli sauce. Service was excellent and very attentive.

My husband and I had a really excellent meal in The Square a few weeks ago. It was on a cold Saturday evening and we were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The pate and crayfish salad were perfect starters, and were followed by equally good fillet of plaice and duck. And of course we couldn't resist the creme... More

We got a great Living Social deal for this restaurant. I had never heard of this place until this deal! We arrived just before 7 and it was quite empty for a Friday night however, a few more tables filled up by around 8pm. I had the plaice and my partner had the duck. My plaice was so fresh, gorgeous... More

We were doing a walking tour of Belfast and were headed to a Ming Cafe recommended in our guide book. Unfortunately it was closed so we went next door to The Square. The service was very friendly and the food was very fresh and excellent. All in all a lovely meal and very good value for money.

Admittedly the kerb appeal is lacking but when we ventured in on a Saturday lunchtime we were both mega impressed by the friendly, prompt efficient service from the waiting staff. The food selection itself was really quite good, the food well cooked and good flavoured. My only gripe was I did not like the french fries as they were a... More

I have enjoyed the lovely food served in The Square on several occasions. I recently went on a Tuesday evening with a friend and had 3 courses (Starter, Main & tea/coffee) for £19.00 per couple. I could not believe the excellent price but to have such beautiful food served by such pleasant staff and piping hot and delicious was delightful.

It is conveniently located with on street parking (which is v handy) and perfectly priced for both 'fancy' or 'quick' menus. I've been to family/ celebration/ fancy meals or a quick 'call... More
