“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This was by far the best dining experience of our long weekend in Belfast. The restaurant is small so tables are a little too close together. As the restaurant was full it was rather noisy. The waiting staff were lovely if a little forgetful. The food though was wonderful so these little niggles were quickly forgotten about. We went for the Sunday lunch at 7pm! 3 course for £24.95 - outstanding value. The restaurant provides complimentary home made bread and butter while you wait for your meal. The celeriac soup with truffle oil was very good but the goat cheese with carrot jam, pears and figs was wonderful. For mains we went for the cod with saffron and chorizo risotto and the chicken with cep cream and truffled and Parmesan macaroni. Both were wonderful but the chicken had the edge. Both came with mashed potato and a selection of vegetables. Desserts of sticky toffee pudding and rhubarb crumble rounded off the meal beautifully. Will definitely return to this restaurant for its superior food.

“Good Astmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Brought here for an early business supper..... Charming.
Food excellent and whilst I felt the place was a bit small for the amount of tables all the staff were very friendly. Worth a second or even third visit....
Approx. £25 for main, wine and shared pudding

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Beatrice Kennedy restaurant must be tried by all. My fiancé and I had the most amazing meal ever. The service was excellent, staff very friendly and down to earth.
We had the beef and the lamb. Absolutely beautiful. Fiancé said it was the best steak he has ever had! Highly recommended.

“Fantastic food once again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

When I go to Belfast for something to eat, 9 times out of 10 I end up at Beatrice Kennedys. Its a popular restaurant so booking is advisable.
The food is always of the highest standard, and absolutely delicious - its always locally sourced and cooked to perfection you have to try their beef! There is a fantastic "early bird" menu if you want a meal before going to the cinema (QFT right around the corner) or theatre (Opera House 15 min walk).
Staff are always friendly and informative and will try to accomodate any dietary requests - I have to give a special mention to Fiona, our waitress that night - wanted to know if we wanted extra bread brought, sorted out the asparagus without the Lima beans, and brought 2 spoons when we only ordered 1 desert - highly impressive.
Can't wait until my next meal there
