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.

I frequently go to the Square and am surprised with a capital 'S' that I read some of these reviews. I have never had a bad meal here!! 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

I've had a meal in The Square on a number of occasions and every-time it has been lovely, everything has been cooked to my taste. The staff are very friendly although maybe could do with a little training setting and serving meals to customers, minor point? But overall this restaurant is under stated and very much worth a visit, when... More

Visited on an early Thursday evening booking with a groupon voucher. The staff were a little stiff, perhaps, but pleasant and efficient. This is, however, almost the limit of the positive experience. We ordered pork medallions with colcannon and cider cream; and the distinctly odd sounding salmon 'escalope' bonne femme. The presentation was lacking and the portions were not particularly... More

No ambience, terrible service and food was horrific, for the first time ever I actually walked out. We were using a groupon voucher which should be there to promote the restaurant and encourage you to come back, instead the restaurant use it to offer a second class level of service. Belfast has so much to offer so please eat elsewhere... More
