great restaurant in front of the Ibis belfast city centre hotel. It is on top of a small pub, so may nit be noticed. Great ambiance; not busy when we had our dinner. I had the pork belly which is really lovely!! great service; meals for two cost less than £30 including drinks and starters. The service is excellent and... More
