The food was excellent and the staff friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere on a cold Saturday night was warm and welcoming, with BYOB adding to the conviviality and subtracting from the cost.

Visited with my husband on Saturday night , and had a really lovely meal . The food was excellent and good value. The service was good with friendly staff. BYO wine certainly helps the cost of a night out. Will visit again .

We wandered into this beautifully cozy restaurant and were greeted by the wonderfully cheerful staff. Be aware it is a BYO restaurant although not to worry the staff are experts at describing the route to the nearest source of vino! The food was outstanding, so much so that we swapped our chicken and sea bass plates half way through. The... More

I recently went here for my birthday and the whole party was impressed with the locally sourced, well cooked and flavourful food and excellent service. Our servers were very accommodating and we wanted for nothing all evening. Highly recommended, especially if you are dining on a budget.

Have eaten here recently for both breakfast and lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. It is excellent value for money and the portions are very generous. Added to this the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend as a good place to eat when in Belfast City Centre. Is also a BYO restaurant in the evening
