Dined here with my wife and child for lunch. It is a bit pricey for lunch but the food is good and plentiful. The location is great, on bedford street. I have eaten here several times and it is always packed. Would recommend this place but you might have to wait.

Attended a wedding party in Harlem Café, its a very cool venue right in the center of Belfast. Lots of paintings and photos with low lighting make for an nice atmosphere.

I have held numerous meetings here. Parking usually easy enough and food/drinks of very high quality. Staff always friendly and always have been able to get seated immediately. Love the quirkiness of this place.
