I was in Belfast for the weekend with friends. There were 12 ladies in our group so the Concierge in our Hotel recommended we booked the Square for the Sunday evening. The restaurant usually closes Sunday evening but they stayed open because of the size of the group. We had a lovely meal from the set menu (A la Carte... More

Again we have friends visiting from afar, as a rule I stick to what I know with regard to restaurants, and as usual, The Square, in Hogwarts parlance, 'Exceeds Expectations', I did book which was just as well, the spot was extremely busy as usual, the four of us eventually got round to ordering (more talking than looking at menus)...

Advised by our Concierge to go there (best to book). The food and service were excellent. My wife had the prawns in garlic and I had the chicken liver pate to start. Tried each other and were extremely tasty. I had the lamb and my wife had the waiters choice of fish and again both were delicious. The wines were... More

Another visit to this little gem didn't disappoint. After a busy day shopping in Belfast we headed to The Square for a meal. It was absolutely beautiful starter and main course finished off with one of the best Calypso Coffees I have ever had. Excellent food and very attentive and pleasant staff.

Though the staff was really attentive and the restaurant well lalced, we felt the food tasteless. perhaps, the meats are the best option.

I visit this restaurant regularly and all I can say each meal gets better and better. Highly recommend squid starter. Excellent selection of fish for main courses - you certainly will not be disappointed. Pavlova is a must. Excellent staff. Well worth a visit

We arrived at 6.30 sadly only one other diner. Very friendly waiter and very helpful and attentive. Food ordered and served well on time and was simply delicious. Only one other couple arrived, and this is a pity for this restaurant deserves much more custom. We will be back again and again.

We recently had dinner in the Square and it was a very good meal. Although, we only had a main course, sides, a bottle of wine and coffees. The reason we did not have a full meal, was due to the late hour of dining, due to a problem with the proposed meal we had expected to have in a... More
