Food was lovely not overpriced. Staff very friendly. There was 15 of us with drinks and food the bill was around £300 but I think it was mad to add a service charge on top.

Had another super lunch which is one of the best value for money deals in Belfast over a lunch time, during the week and over the weekend.

Waitress was not interested in offering our child an alternative or smaller portion off the main menu! And had no child's menu, this is fine but should be noted before entry to the restaurant !! Needless to say, we left as my child was not made feel welcome. Really disappointed ! 😕
