“A Flavour of Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

I went to Robinsons with some work colleagues on a Monday night to sample some good old Irish music. There was a duo - one on guitar and another on keyboard and fiddle. The music and overall atmosphere was just great - the place was buzzing. This is simply a must when you visit Belfast.

“Robinsons - A Pub with Character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Robinson's Pub or Bar and Bistro in Belfast is a treat not to be missed. It has Irish character inside and out. You can have a drink in one of their snuglies (unfortunately, you cannot eat in one) or go upstairs for delicious Irish fare. It is a bit crowded and the food was not outstanding but it was good and traditional. We almost overlooked this restaurant and were so happy that we did not. It was memorable.

“Fresh cooked quality food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

dined here in the upstairs restaurant, food was all fresh ingredients and of a good standard, staff friendly and welcoming, one downside i'd have loved to have a nice steak only not on menu, and should have waited 15mins as theres a pre theatre offer on here ...... but overall i good quality filling meal.

“Fantastic! Great value”

Gorgeous food, friendly staff. When we arrived they did not have a table so gave us a pager and we waited in the bar for 10 minutes. Loved it, highly recommended. :))
