Delicious, friendly and quaint

The food was great, the service was tremendous. Beautiful outside dining area (inside as well) in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the botanic gardens.

Different type of place to eat. Service was excellent . Food lacked a lot of taste and my option was bland scallops small . Monk fish was a bit tasteless . Bread nothing special .

How this place isn't in the top 10 is beyond belief! The restaurant is situated in the Queens area and appears to be a converted house. The monkfish....oh my God! Credit to the chef for not spoiling the dish with various spices as the toulouse sausage worked incredibly. The staff are knowledgeable and absolutely dead on! (especially the bearded waiter/manager).

Had a tomato soup late in the afternoon and it was lovely. Cute little nook hidden in the bricks off the road.

Great food and atmosphere. Can't wait to return. Been to a few restaurants in Belfast lately, Molly's yard has been by far the best, lovely relaxed atmosphere, well done to all the staff, they are doing a great job.

Visited Molly's Yard tonight. It was superb, from the service to the food and ambience. Good vegetarian menu and washed down with delicious Hilden Brewery Ale. Very friendly and attentive staff ...... will definitely be back.

Molly's Yard has a certain uniqueness about it that makes it feel special. It is such as a small space which could make some diners uncomfortable but the genius of the kitchen in the corner and the added music mean that the small space is filled with a great vibe and you can't hear the other diners. The food was... More

This is a superb and very cute little restaurant. When you arrive outside, you don't realise you are walking into the Tardis! there are tables all round the place, in the courtyard and in the main building. I've eaten twice here now and loved it both times. The service is lovely, very attentive and catered for everything asked for. Recommended... More
