Visited solely on the basis of an entry in the Good Beer Guide, plus it was round the corner, this is a great little restaurant that also sells good very good beer. The beer in question, for us, was an experimental double IPA by Hilden's brewery at a stonking 7.8%, very tasty with a slight haze that produced a Belgium... More

This is a small restaurant with wonderful food. It's not cheap but worth it. Make you booking well before you make your trip to Belfast so that you are not disappointed. The staff were very welcoming and also knowledgeable about the local food and drinks.

I saw this restaurant on a couple of restaurant review sites and as it was a short walk from our hotel we thought we would seek it out. I am so happy we did, as the ambience was relaxed. The food was amazing and the gin lovely

The problem with restaurant reviews is that there are so many aspects of a visit to criticise. I visited as part of a group of 6. It wasn't my first visit, so that tells you something about the place - I returned! I made the booking and was told at the time that we would have the table for two... More

Brilliant, food was amazing, staff fab, just a superb nite out. It may be pricey to some but at approx. 30 pounds a head i didnt think it was expensive.

This was a great find. I enjoyed it very much. I had the sea bass special which was delicious. Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was lovely.

We had a lovely meal last week at Molly's - very good food, wine and service. Very friendly and nice place. Paid over £80 but it was a special occasion - if you don't want to pay that much there are plenty of cheaper restaurants nearby but we thought the quality of the food was excellent. Would definitely go again... More

Sorry, nice little place with a decent welcome and a homely atmosphere, but over-priced for what we got. Fish mains were dominated by a spaghetti ragu, scallop starters were gorgeous but not filling (we only got 2) side of greens and garlic potatoes were very good but these should not be the centrepiece of a meal. Try harder Mollys -... More

Our son gave me a list of possible venues for lunch on his Q.U.B. Graduation day. Molly's Yard was the first I rang, as it is very convenient to Queens. Luckily the could fit us in. We were welcomed by Alex who also seemed to do everything for us except cook our meals, and did so in a most efficient... More

Good food, & large selection of beers & gins, portion sizes were good, service was a little slow but there was only one girl on upstairs but she was very pleasant, food tasted fresh & is locally sourced, however thought it was a little expensive compared with what you get elsewhere.
