the food was just average.

When I came i was confused as to weather or not I should sit or wait to be seated as there was nobody manning the desk or signage to indicate so, The place seemed hectic so I waited a minute or two for a staff member to free up so I could ask, once seated we got menus and ordered... read more

The nachos were sparce with too much cheese and a bit burnt. It then took an hour for desert to arrive, during the wait the staff seemed to vanish. The ice cream Sundays were about half the size you'd expect.

Reasonable food in diner surroundings, but the waitress was excellent and very efficient. The restaurant sits on the top floor of the Victoria Square shopping centre, which a bit of a maze to find the right escalators to get to the restaurants. Does what is says on the tin, but uninspiring.

We go sporadically, never booking just appearing. Yet each time we get a table, service is good, food is what it is nothing fancy just a good feed. It's a family environment, with all ages that is very accommodating.

The staff were great, very quick service even on a Saturday night and we all really enjoyed our food. One of our party is wheat intolerant so the gluten free menu was a big perk, although the serving for the gluten free menu was much smaller than the rest.

Lovely guy serving us, very helpful with changing dishes to suit tastes and allergies. Nice atmosphere...I loved the swing and jive music playing. 6 of us ate here and all found something to suit. Little bit pricey but with exchange rates everything seems expensive when used to euro. Great for groups and teens/kids.

Ordered chicken and ribs. Chicken was pathetic and thr ribs were tiny, all bone and dry. Prob the worst place ive eaten in belfast. When asked by the manager was it ok i told him the ribs were pathetic to which he said thats how they come... Never be back. Management is poor.

Have had the lunchtime menu here - decent, cheap food. Nothing special and wouldn't come back for the more expensive evening menu but nice way to break up a days shopping. Brownie desert was rubbish though - planned to share but there wasn't enough for one let alone two!
