We would use the Kitchen Bar reasonably regularly but will think very carefully about if and when we return!! The service was lacklustre to be honest.....my wife had her Prawn Salad brought out in a bowl without an accompanying plate for it to rest on......which was brought over about 5mins after she started her meal!!No one came to ask if...

Was rather disappointed by the food - distinctly average. Chicken goujons deep fried beyond belief. Friend's burger nothing special. Biggest disappointment was being told we had to eat in restaurant as opposed to the bar area - we were sitting at table adjacent to the dining area, having already had a few drinks. Couldn't believe this, told that everyone would... More

The Kitchen Bar is located on the edge of Victoria Square by the bandstand on Victoria Street. As I work in Victoria Square in a separate store, myself and some colleagues like to call in for a pint before going home. The bar is quite nice. It has a few benches outside the front door for having a smoke, or... More

We had a meal here on Monday night after recommendations from a few locals. We had the 2 course option and all the food was lovely and plentiful. Staff were lovely. They had a solo performer playing who was great and added to the atmosphere.

Visited last night and had a lovely dinner. The staff were friendly and polite. Food came very quickly and everything was well cooked and hot. Brilliant atmosphere both inside and outside- will definitely be back!

Have previously written an excellent review on the Kitchen Bar but have to say we were extremely disappointed this evening when we stopped by around 7-30pm looking forward to some of their usual appetising dishes. A guy resembling a chef told us no food available as a new kitchen was been fitted( a week before Christmas??) I did check on... More

Stopped in on the day of the Australia v Argentina semi final and the bar was packed as there had been a big Manchester derby on before hand. Service was really poor at the bar with a number of the staff focussing on cleaning glasses rather than serving customers. Choice of beer poor and what should be a great pub... More

Once upon a time the Kitchen Bar was an iconic pub in Belfast city centre, loved by many. A bit basic in decor but the beer, food and craic was good, and well priced. The rebuilt bar of the same name is a shadow of it's former self. Poor choice of beer and very average food. The steak pie should... More

My wife and I decided to have a drink at the Kitchen bar before our dinner. As it was Easter Saturday it was quiet,so we got a table and saw some footy as well as chatting away. Love the design
