We had smoked salmon on bagels with cream cheese and scrambled eggs and they were absolutely to die for. Service was good and the staff are so friendly and helpful.

A night out with friends. Arrived at 20 10 got main course at 21 40. Wouldn't call that great service but they wanted to charge us £12 service charge for 4 people. I don't think an hour and a half can clarify good service. On a positive note atmosphere was great and food was good a pity they ruined it... More

Quite hard to find any positives. Service all over the place, meals coming out at different times, drinks orders forgotten about, etc. Food just average. Was expecting some baby boiled potatoes or roasties with dinner but sadly not. No point in asking for any as if they ever did come it would have been long after we had finished our... More

Love this place, on a Sunday particularly. Would love a more European style lunch, as the interior warrants it, but the selection on the menu is good, for Belfast anyway. Staff are always super helpful and friendly and the bills are always reasonable. I'd recommend booking a table, as it's very busy every day.

Beautiful surroundings, festive music, attentive staff and a room full of happy diners. The food, well I had no complaints from anyone (lucky me as the organiser!) my own meal was delicious from starter through... More

Harlem café was recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. Not far from the Europa bus centre it was our breakfast stop before shopping and the Christmas markets. Though it was busy we were promptly shown to a table. The décor and paintings made for a very relaxing atmosphere. The staff were helpful and friendly. Plenty of choice on... More

Late yesterday morning, 4th December, the commissonaire at a nearby hotel mentioned that the Harlem served the finest of food. He was so right; the lunch for two was delicious, the ambience superb and the staff (not forgetting the manageress) could not have been more friendly and helpful. The experience easily matched, indeed surpassed, in every way an excellent supper... More
