Love the food, love the service. Slightly pricey but it's worth it. Love the dessert the best. Would recommend this place to everyone visiting Belfast.

We dined at South James Street on our wedding anniversary (always heard the Directors of my company talking about it). The food was absolutely excellent, the combination of ingredients was perfect, the desert was a taste of Heaven and to top it off Mr James Nesbitt (the Hobbit) was dining there too! Will go back for another gourmet meal... Definitely!

Top quality food, Belfast deserves a few michelin stars, JSS should have one of them! Innovative flavours such as fois gras toast with pigeon and sweet corn sauce. Great service, ambience. I implore the michelin tasters to check out Belfast!!

Americans traveling through, my wife and I ate her on two consecutive nights; the first was so good we just had to return. The setting is lovely; the service very professional, yet warm; and the food is amazing. On our first night we had cured salmon, artichoke, mushroom ravioli, gnocchi, broccoli, cheese plate, passion fruit granite and after-dinner drinks. On... More

I went here last night with my fiancée for the first time. The staff were very friendly and attentive and knowledgeable with regards to the menu. We opted for the 4 course taster meal and what a surprise package this was. A crab based starter followed by a turbot taster then main course of beef with champ and finished off... More
