Good food, good menu, good service and a decent selection of beer ...... not much more needs to be said of this little gem. One of the best of many great eateries around Belfast

Not so keen on the new menu. Another reviewer says this place used to be great and I agree. The menu has changed and not for the better in my opinion. Had dinner and ended up having a fish dish which I rarely have when I go out as I feel going out for dinner is all about indulgence. The... More

Have eaten here about 6 times in the last couple of years, haven't been in 6 months noticed a significant change in the lunch menu, nowhere near as good as it used to be however I will say it's not as expensive either. Damn shame was once a great bistro.

Delicious food and good service. No wifi unfortunately. We were tourists and value the opportunities to connect with back home while on the road.

Our extended family were all in Belfast for the weekend and w ate twice in this restaurant, once downstairs in the posh bit and also upstairs another day in the newly opened section which served the best hot dogs I have ever had. Downstairs in the main restaurant the food was very good and competitively priced, with a good choice.... More

Recently visited this restaurant mid week and was surprised at how busy it was. It was however a good sign as the meal and service were great. The price of the food and wine was what you expect to pay in the Cathedral quarter. There were five adults in our party and we are all raving about this place. Hope... More

Went for dinner with friends and we had a great night. The tables were far enough apart so you are not sitting on top of other diners, the service was great. There were four of us and we each ordered something different and we all really enjoyed our food. There was also a nice atmosphere we would definitely go back.

We stumbled upon this place by chance coming out of the nearby car park and selected it from the others nearby due to the menu. We were a party of 6 including 2 children and were very impressed by the children's menu (being more imaginative than the usual nuggets/sausage/fish fingers and chips). We were pushed for time and so asked... More
