“Poor quality, poor quantity, poor waiter.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Called in for lunch and the waiter gave the impression he didn't want to be there. Starter of chicken wings was good, but main was pretty poor, tired would be a better description, was there actually any meat in the sauce? Burger wasn't homemade and looked terrible. Will not be back even if they giving the food away.

“Won't be back!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Visited this restaurant 15th August and booked in advance table for 7p.m. Restaurant was about half full when we arrived. Ordered drinks and 4 main courses. Drinks took quite some time to arrive. Then had to wait at least another 25 minutes for food. One of the dishes was incorrect order, one was lukewarm, one had part missing and the other was just ok. As we had waited so long for food to arrive and were hungry we just ate up but informed our server. We then ordered two desserts for our children and two coffees and requested our bill. Our server had deducted the incorrect order from our bill but after we had paid we noticed another error and our server had to refund us for this item. This was by far the worst meal and service we have experienced in recent times and speaking to the diners at the table beside us they agreed as they had just sent back their food as it was cold. Very poor and we will NOT be back!

“Chiquito. Belfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Tasty enough food. The service was adequate and friendly enough. The ribs were highly recommended to me so I thought I would give them a try. I really enjoyed them but could have eaten more. The spicy rice which I ordered with the ribs was ok but again there wasn't very much of it either and I am not a big eater. Not bad but there are better places to eat in the city center.

“Second and last time here. VERY SLOW service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Food average- Decor ok - service pathetic. Went for lunch at 1-00 got out at 2-30 and it wasnt even busy. The card machine is set up to embarrass you into leaving a tip, as when its presented the waiter/ess tells you to read the instructions asking you to press the key to give or not give. Whats that about? I didnt as the service was dire. Wont be back in a hurry. Should have read the warning signs as everywhere around had a 20 min wait, and this place was able to seat us straight away. Should have waited 20 mins elsewhere as it would have been quicker in the long run.
