Beautiful meal Shame the waitress turned hostile at the end!

Our son gave my husband and I a voucher for a meal at Tedfords for New years eve, but unfortunately I was ill. So we went last night, at long last! We were not disappointed, with our starter or our main course. The Staff were lovely. When we paid for our meal with our voucher, there was still some... read more

We have eaten in this restaurant Many times. The food is excellent quality. Closely followed by the service. Whilst they specialise in seafood, you can eat your way through their entire menu and be suitably impressed with the fare. My preference is to be seated upstairs, the views are better but the food is the star of the show. Reasonably... More

A party of 5 went here for belated birthday celebration. We were seated downstairs at the window which was good being an odd number as no one was left sitting facing an empty space. Service was exemplary. Pleasant courteous staff. Some nice breads to accompany the starters which were lovely. Mains were the curried monkfish, 2 John Dory dishes and... More

Went here in June for my birthday, just myself and my bf. I got a curry monkfish special, and I can't remember what exactly it came with, but it was delicious! We went quite early and ended up being the only people in the place. A lovely woman served us, she had such a bubbly personality, really made us feel... More

We have wanted to go here for quite a while but felt we needed to wait for a special occasion due to the costs, this was a mistake as the food was fantastic especially the monkfish curry , wine was reasonable and very drinkable and service was really friendly and attentive without being intrusive, this place makes you feel a...

Tedfords continues to be favourite restaurant in Belfast for these simple reasons: - the food is exquisite - the service from Sharon and the team is fantastic - lovely relaxing atmosphere and surroundings very tastefully decorated - excellent value for money

Really enjoyed our evening at Tedfords. The four of us arrived early - there was a bit of confusion and we went for a drink in basement bar which lacked atmosphere. The service in the restaurant was good and the food was excellent. Scallops with duck spring roll followed by Monkfish was perfect. Reasonably priced and good wine selection. Thanks

excellent quality and faultless food. Particularly recommend the monkfish curry. Easy to see why this has lasted the test of time in Belfast. Easily recommend to anyone wanting a superb fish dinner.

Called in to have the pre theatre menu, before heading to the Waterfront. Chowder and smoked Caesar salad to start. Chowder bit too salty.Salad ok. For mains had the fillet of John Dory, and fillet of beef. John Dory was nicely cooked, but unexpectedly cut into strips.Pleasant but over salty. Beef was very tender. Dessert was a parfait and a...

Still rate tedfords as one of the best in Belfast. Quality product, thoughtful plates and well executed(turbot slightly, slightly over done). if I had one complaint it would be I wished it were open more for lunch and Sunday so I could be a regular!
