Really good restaurant! Staff were great, food was great! Was it out of this world!? It was okay! It's just good food, done well. Wasn't our first choice on the night but everywhere else was booked out! Make sure you book a restaurant before you head to Belfast!!

We went here on a Saturday night and it was a great find. Sweet potato ravioli and smoked chicken was excellent. Really friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.

Me and my fiancee have been at Barking Dog last year when we visited Belfast and decided to go again this time. Amazing food and atmosphere.

It was amazing!... More

Great food, great service, romantic atmosphere. I accidentally overpaid the waiter, he chased us down outside to return money. Regardless of this kind gesture, an all round great place to eat.

For our mains my partner had fish pie and I had 10oz rib eye steak and both were excellent with my steak cooked (medium) absolutely perfectly. The Guinness was first class and the... More

Decided to give this restaurant a go as it was only round the corner. Really enjoyed the ambiance as it was very remincent of a romantic dinner with dimmed lighting and candles on table perfect for a couple.

I AS A avid food lover , cant fault it in any way , quality of the food, service ( laura was a great help ) , standards , food taste , etc etc etc . really have nothing to say except praises. However if iam being really really skimpy, probably need a bit bigger serving of tapas.

I've been here a number of times for family meals, work dinners and large group parties. The service is always fantastic, friendly and fast. The food, cocktails and wine menu are all good, with something for every taste and palate. Recommend booking in advance if you're going on a weekend, and highly recommend booking early if you want the private... More
