I wenty to Buskers with a few friends recently and can't praise the restaurant high enough! The crab linguine was impeccable, so fresh and perfectly sized portion. (accompanied with a generous garlic baguette- of course). Aslo tried my friend's burger which was so so great- get the sweet potato fries! If the food wasn't impressive enough, the atmosphere alone makes... More

My wife and I loved everything about Beatrice Kennedys so a bit apprehensive about what Buskers had to offer. Even catching up with a friend on a cold Tuesday night in February it delivered at every level. Not fine dining as BKs but doesn't claim to be and as a result it's much easier on the pocket! Spoilt for choice... More

My partner and I came here on Saturday night after finding our usual restaurant queued out past the door. We were not disappointed. We were quickly shown to a table upstairs, but within half an hour the restaurant was packed (always a good sign). The food was excellent, the staff were pleasant and attentive and the atmosphere was good. I... More

Many interesting items on the menu. We ordered scampi and seafood pie. The scampi was battered well with a nice flavour and evidently caught locally. I thought the seafood pie was under seasoned and had to add quite a bit of salt to enjiy the taste. No beer on Tao but a selection if bottled beer. Staff and service was... More

We've dined here on previous occasions, and it very much felt like an occasion restaurant. It was pricey but so worth it, the food, service and atmosphere were wonderful. We decided to try it out under the new management, who has actually worked there behind the scenes for many years. Little bit more pocket friendly, a tad more casual (not... More

There was once a restaurant in Belfast called Beatrice Kennedy, it was what might be termed 'fine dining' the type of restaurant that stood out due to the menu, standard of the food, the service and the ambience. It was the type of restaurant you would go to for birthdays, anniverseries or to impress a new beau. In short it... More

Beatrice Kennedy was an absolutely outstanding restaurant and I can only apologise that you did not enjoy your experience with us as Buskers. With a different menu and theme through the restaurant, it will not suit all of the Beatrice Kennedy clientele as the difference is so huge. Sorry that you will not be returning to us, I wish you...
