Went to try £10 lunch. Won't go again. One of us had to return braised beef a lot of mushrooms difficulty in finding beef. Toulouse Sausage salad was also a let down Waiter advised champ to go with it. Cost of small portion was £4 We also had 10% service charge added. So disappointing

I liked the decor apart from the crystal chandeliers which seemed to me incongruous. Starters were decidedly mixed. My foie gras was brilliant. My partner's mozzarella and tomato was awful. Three tiny little balls of buffalo mozzarella for the price was a total rip off. Buffalo Mozzarella isn't gold dust Mr. Deane, one can even buy it in Marks and... More

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...
