Highly recommended

As a vegetarian, Belfast is not the kindest of cities for eating out. Molly's Yard bucks that trend by offering a full vegetarian menu to accompany the main menu. It also has one of the nicest locations, best customer service and selections of gin I have experienced in Belfast. A must visit.

Two of my visiting American friends requested we try this restaurant during their visit. Having very little knowledge of Molly's Yard beforehand I didn't know what to expect, I booked a table for four and on arrival was greeted by pleasant staff and guided to our upstairs table. Janey, our waitress, was very polite and recommended us on the best... More

Original but unpretentious menu, desserts that are not too heavy or over-sugary, portions that are not over the top, excellent service, friendly, great choice of drinks, good choice in music, what more do you want?

Molly's Yard is within a short walking distance from the Tara Lodge where we stayed. The hotel staff booked a reservation for us. (See separate review of Tara Lodge.) We sat upstairs which was quaint, tall ceilings and windows. Our server was very pleasant and contributed to a lovely experience. There were four of us dining. The two guys ordered... More

On my sisters request our family went to Mollys Yard. The date was the 21st of July and I cannot remember our servers name, but she was lovely and very friendly while a bit nervous. The cocktails were great and the heart rump steak was delicious, cooked pink which was perfection.

Molly's Yard is a quirky restaurant unlike any other in Belfast, with an interesting and varied menu. The experience was complete with helpful staff and quiet ambiance. I sampled the monkfish and instantly fell in love; I would very much recommend visiting Molly's Yard for a fantastic experience.

Hate to write a bad review but felt a little ripped off after having a special evening at Molly's Yard. Service was faultless. Great attentive staff with great customer care. A lovely building with nice warming decor. Small room and a little close quarters with neighbouring diners but it didn't annoy me too much to be honest. Food however I... More

Delecious meals for a fair price. Cosy litte restaurant with world class kitchen to find in a understatement building. Being part of a brewery own beer is provided - and highly recomended.
