we were recommended to go to the meat locker and glad we did . steak choice and variety was excellent and cooked to perfection . starters and sides again lovely . not the cheapest restaurant in the world but when they serve food as good as this I don't mind. I will return best steakhouse in Belfast

Had an early meal from the set menu. It is not cheap but food was fantastic. The steaks really tasty. Service was friendly and attentive.

I don't eat beef so I wasn't over excited about going to meat locker for dinner with friends one Saturday night but that made the experience all the better. Great atmosphere at 8pm on a Saturday evening, the place was full but the service did not suffer at all. A few lovely specials on offer so I went for the... More

After waiting all day for what should have been a delightful evening meal at Deane's seafood restaurant the meal was not to the standard you are paying for. We ordered the pot cod and salmon dish. The cod was something if you haven't any form of cookery skills could have made yourself and the salmon was bland on the palette... More

I was disappointed with service and the food!!! In particular the waitress with the black hair in a ponytail who seemed to have a nonchalant attitude to service and a superior being approach to customers. I returned my main course due to the chicken being cold she come back and had the audacity to ask me if I realise the... More

Michael Deanes - Meat Locker provided a highlight meal for ourselves and friends from Canada prior to attending the nearby Belfast Grand Opera House. From our early evening arrival till we left, it was near perfect. Only thing missing was , if it was Miami and sunny it would be perfect. Five of us sat down with two going for... More

Had really high hopes for the new Eipic restaurant although they were soon dashed. Biggest two suprises were 1) portion size - the £6.50 lunch was the size of an average starter (one nearby diner had four chips and one fish goujon which was described as "Fish and Chips" - can't argue with that I suppose, althought the waitress did...

I'll keep it simple. The board outside the restaurant advertised lunch for a tenner. We had olives and some bread to start, a chip to share with our meal, some sparkling water, one glass of white wine & two coffees.........total cost £57.60.....!! You do the math......

The accompanying photo needs to be updated. The new Michael Deane restaurant, Eipic, opened two months ago, and is very sophisticated. It is in muted tones with expensive upholstery on very comfortable chairs; a glass wine cellar divides the bar from the dining room. Even the china is unusual in shape and very pretty. Michael Deane's now is three restaurants:Meat... More

My husband and I have not dined at Deanes for a few years and decided to try The MeatLocker having heard good reviews. We were not disappointed. The T Bone flame grilled steak (650g between 2) was cooked exactly as we had ordered and served exquisitely, side orders were perfect and we selected a Lebanese wine from the wine list... More
