Quick Dinner before a show at the MAC!

We had an enjoyable dinner here before we went to a show at the MAC. There was a great offer of 2 courses for £10. I had the pate which was lovely with a nice redcurrant sauce over it. Then i went for the burger which was good. The only issue was that there are only a certain amount of... read more

We waited to long to find food with our kids here in Belfast. We didn't realize that the first 5 restaurants we tried to eat at just wouldn't serve food. There seems to be an alcoholism problem amongst kitchen staff or something. This place was open. It had food. It was a winner. I had the wings which I added... More

The venue is great and the food is good but after waiting at the bar for 15 minutes to be served and overlooked (and they weren't busy) we came away - this was a shame as we do like the place.

Been here numerous times, love the atmosphere, great cocktails, which are only £4 each from 5pm til 9pm! Absolute bargain! Had bar snack food this time, which was delicious! Main menu is great value at two course for £10... Definitely recommend!

Nice setting, stylish decor inside. Two courses for a tenner during the day was good value, it was tasty too. Service fine. Decent menu choice. Worth a look.

We called in about 9pm on a Thursday night. There were diners in but there was also a good number of vacant tables. We were allocated the one right next to the kitchen. I appreciate tables are allocated to smooth service but as I work in catering I didn't want to feel like I was helping the chef so we... More

Ate here on a Friday night and it was buzzing! Live music on - amazing singer with acoustic guitar. Food was good and the portion size right. Amazing chandeliers over the bar! Well worth a visit either just for drinks or for food.
