Superb!

Lovely low-key atmosphere, beautiful courtyard for warm weather, but above all, excellent food and friendly attentive staff. I went two nights in a row: scallop starter, brill, kid goat, salad with pork, duck, local whiskey -- couldn't be better! Reservation required: it's small!

Great little find in the university area of Belfast. Wait staff were friendly and set the mood for what would follow. The duck entree was perfect. Moist. Flavourful. Dessert was a great single grain scotch followed by coffee and local fudge. If you are in Belfast you will be well served to try Mollys Yard

Its not too far from the City Centre, right beside Queens so while you would expect to find it on a farm its very central. I was there on a busy night and found the service to be a little... More

Just been to Molly's Yard for a birthday treat and while good not as good as previous. Food all lovely, although the goat was too strong for my taste. Service usually excellent but tonight a little lacking. After an initial drink nobody checked to see if would like another. Then offered a dessert menu but 20 minutes later no menu... More

We were traveling in Belfast and stayed near the college. It was pouring raining and we noticed Molly's Yard. It is a very sweet little restaurant. The server was very pleasant and the food was lovely and fresh.
