We have dined at other Frankie & Benny's (particularly the one at Bloomfield Shopping Centre, Bangor) and have always enjoyed the food. In Belfast today we decided to go to the Victoria Square Resturant for lunch. My husband ordered a Chicken Wrap, my son ordered gnocchi and my daughter and myself opted for Fish,chips & peas. Having been served with... More

I have recently visited this restaurant with my sister on Thursday afternoon. We simply wanted a small lunch so opted to combine 2 of the starter options together. The waitress seemed to have great difficulty understanding this (didn't catch her name). She proceeded to take our order and left again. She returned with "our order" and instead of what we... More

We headed down to the Chinese restaurant in Victoria Square around 8pm one evening on our recent visit to Belfast. Unfortunately it'd closed down (China China?) and given the time a few of the other places were also closed for the evening. We settled on Frankie and Benny's as it offered something for everyone and we weren't disappointed. Great service,... More

Complete shambles. Probably more staff than customers and couldn't get decent service. Food was poor,I was hungry so ordered 1/2 chicken ans chips. Must have miniature chickens as I needed something to eat after leaving. The sweetcorn on my plate looked like it came off someone else's plate had to ask the waitress to remove it as I thought it...

Good sized portions, just like any other frankie and bennys I've been to. Good we reserved upto 40 seats for our team mates, coaches and parents up the stairs which I thought was good, and delivery of the food was fast. I would recommend to lots of people if they're ever thought about Northern ireland.

We really enjoyed our meal here, both are lovers of Italian food so pasta all-round! I had the lasagna and it was top notch. To treat ourselves, we had an East Coast sundae to share, it was amazing! Struggled to finish it but we made it! Definitely go back for more fantastic food!

We have been to a few of these places. Food was exactly as was expected and no different from any of their other restaurants, but that was what we wanted that night. Friendly server, who was efficient.

Went here with my mom on a Saturday afternoon. Firstly we had to wait around 10 minutes for a table, nothing shocking on a Saturday, and were to be seated upstairs. However, this is where it all went downhill. We were greeted by a man I can only assume holds some sort of supervisory role, and he was rude and... More
