An outstanding restaurant in every way. The food is terrific and every bite thoroughly enjoyed. Can highly recommend the pork belly starter. Staff are extremely attentive in every respect. Pistachio cake simply delicious. Excellent wine list as well. Can't wait to go back. Thank you for a wonderful meal.

Our first time in this restaurant last Saturday and had a wonderful evening. Met the man himself and we were so well looked after it made our entire weekend in NI just wonderful. Great to meet a celebrity chef and his food and presentation was just awesome. We have eaten in some other well named restaurants in Scotland and England... More

Excellent everything. Best food. Best presentation. Best service. Best location. Best view. We always feel welcome and important. Nothing is too much, nothing is a hassle. If they can make your night better they 'want' to. Raymond McArdle, as always, lives up to his famed reputation of a highly skilled chef with an incredible eye for detail. The manager Fiachra...

Excellent food and very reasonably priced. Well dressed waiters and waitresses who were very proficient in their duties. Lovely decor and excellent views across Carlingford Lough. Definitely will be back again.

Called in today after visiting Cranfield and heading back home. Was in a queue of traffic and stopped alongside restaurant. Decided to go in as restaurant looked quite inviting from the outside. Was able to get a table without booking (Sunday afternoon) and had a table by the window so was able to look out on to the sea. My... More

My husband and I were really looking forward to having Sunday lunch here after reading the great review in one of the newspapers a few weeks ago. We had booked a window table and to sit here and have Sunday lunch is just idyllic. The staff were really friendly and the service was excellent. Unfortunately we felt that the only... More

A couple of years ago I had some lovely meals here but having been recently I can only say it has gone downhill and now I don't think I will be going back again. I've eaten here several times recently in the hope that I might get them on a good night but no, they have been consistent with some... More

We as a Team are very disappointed to read your review, we base ourselves on consistency as most reviews state. As a customer we value your opinion and are asked throughout dinner - 'Are you enjoying your food??' This review seems harsh as some of the dishes haven't featured in quite a long time and Raymond cooks in Restaurant 23... More

So it was Thursday night and my wife and I arrived home from work with nothing planned for dinner. After a very short discussion on the attractiveness of beans on toast or scrambled eggs we decided to let someone else do the cooking and clearing up. In recent years Belfast has seen the opening of a number of very good... More

Favourite restaurant in Northern Ireland. Delicious fresh meals every time. Head Chef Raymond even give me the recipe to the delish wheaten bread. Defo have to try this restaurant for lunch or dinner.
