Great food

visited this cafe 3 days while on a course with work. The food was absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. The portion sizes are very generous and the waiting staff very attentive. Will definitely return and recommend to friends

I was absolutely delighted with the Orchard Cafe. The friendly manager was very helpful and the lunch-time menu provided great choices. Service was spot-on and the food was excellent. I strongly support the ethos of this restaurant but believe me it can hold its head up high in terms of quality. Great food...excellent value...sorry we didn't have time (or room!)... More

It's not the quality of the food that makes this place great, although it is really good. It's not the price, although it is really reasonable. It wasn't the décor although it was fine and the music was much better than the usual café dross. It wasn't even the folk I was with although they're pretty impressive. It's that this... More

This is one of the nicest places in Belfast to pop into for a bite to eat. The daily specials are very good (and cheap). The restaurant is run by the Orchardville Society and provides an excellent training ground for members interested in catering.

I was very fortunate to visit this wonderful establishment courtesy of a Living Social deal! And I'm so glad I did!!! The food was fabulous - I had the club sandwich, served with side salad and chips and then the chocolate brownie with ice cream - portions were huge, service excellent and on checking the menu, choice varied and prices...
