I LOVED Beatrice Kennedys but now that it's gone, Buskers is like it's lively younger brother. A lot trendier, and s totally different feel. I liked the decor inside. The bar has moved from the very back to the front room, on one side. Lovely modern white tiling. Love the bare bulb industrial style lighting. Love the new wooden booth... More

Cool little restaurant with causal dining and some local seafood options. I had the chowder and the brioche burger, which were both very good.

We had dinner here for the first time since the restaurant has changed from Beatrice Kennedy and it is a different experience as it was previously more "fine dining" We were greeted by lovely friendly staff and seated at the window table as it was quite quiet The menu is varied and the décor very modern with music playing and...

My wife and I decided to treat my 7 year old daughter soon to be 8 to a scrummy dinner, so along with daughter no 2 we went to Buskers this evening. We had chowder and soup of the day (tomato and basil) to start whilst the girls had fresh chicken goujons and fried and bangers, mash and beans. For... More

We have had so many fun evenings at Buskers!! The service is what makes it, always good banter while eating some really tasty food. The live music / playlist creates a comfortable, quirky and enjoyable atmosphere.

We visited Buskers for lunch on Thursday 30 June following a lovely graduation ceremony at Queen's. The restaurant offered a three course graduation lunch with plenty of choice. All six of us thoroughly enjoyed every course and the level of customer service was excellent, attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend Buskers.

This is a small restaurant in the University section of Belfast that surprises with excellent food and a very friendly, helpful staff. It surpassed our expections and is the best meal we've had in Ireland in our 4 days here. Outstanding mussels, brisket, and fish of the day, which was hake. The seafood chowder has more and more varied seafood... More

Came across this restaurant when our group of 5 was looking for dinner options - so glad we did, an absolutely faultless dining experience. Staff so friendly and helpful, nice vibe to the place, great and varied menu. The consensus was, i'd ordered the best thing on the menu - the beef brisket - what a cracking dish, the most... More
