We had a very lovely dinner here. It was a bit more expensive than other restaurants but the food is exceptional. The waitress was rushed off her feet but she still found the time to explain dishes. She was also very friendly.

It has a lovely atmosphere and some great selection of beers. I had risotto and the wife had the fish of the day. Everything was tasty however I only wish it had been busier to make a bit of atmosphere. Nothing to the staff though as they work hard.

This was a last minute arrangement to meet a friend for a quick bite to eat before attending a conference in Belfast. Sometimes the unplanned events surprise, and this little gem certainly did that. I had no expectations of greatness, I'd never been in before, but boy did it pack a punch. The menu is simple to navigate, but elegant... More

My sister, and I had a wonderful dinner at Molly's Yard. Our waitress, Colleen, was fantastic. She really made our evening special. I enjoyed several starters in lieu of a main dish. A bowl of soup, I can't recall the type now, scallops and risotto, and a goat cheese tart. They were all lovely, though the risotto was a bit... More

We found this restaurant on TRIPADVISOR and it was magic... The food was delicious (local food), the cider was excellent, the... More

This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Belfast. Every time I go I have a lovely meal and the staff are always so helpful. The last time I went was a few months ago for their gin tasting menu and it was perfect. The effort they had put in could be seen in the smallest detail and you... More

Slightly out of the way, near Queens University & QFT, for those who know the area. As well as good food, there's a great selection of beers from Hilden Brewery, and a few special gins.
