Really nice surrounding, but really poor service. 45min wait for 6 cocktails and then got 2 wrong. Later we then had a member of staff try and challenge that we were in the wrong?! Very poor! I would avoid in future.

Worth a visit as the decor is fabulously OTT & the place has a great vibe. Food absolutely fine but unremarkable.

Your expectations drop when in the Christmas season as party nights take over. The Caesar salad was ok not exceptional and while the beef was very good the vegetables had been sitting around too long and were a bit soggy. On a brighter note they have a good wine list though the Borland Chenin blanc was unavailable. It would be... More

Seriously haven't been to cafe v this year and after the treatment from door staff last night it will be a very long time before going back , made to queue for 30 mins or so as person after person left the bar and once inside it was obviously all for show as the place was literally half full ,...

Absolutely fell in love with the décor in this place. Very quirky, tacky luxury (in a good way), art deco twist. Would love to come back during an evening/think it would be fantastic to hire for parties. Cocktails reasonable at £6/7 each. Food also a reasonable price with mains £10-£14. Food is good but nothing exceptional. Affordable elegance. Perfect for... More

We were in Belfast on business and what a great building we found. The Cafe Vaudeville is a great mix of styles. The food was very good and not too dear. This is well worth a try.

Right in the centre and a beautiful, old interior. Great value for money and thoroughly enjoyed my meal - squid for main and pavlova dessert.

This is a kitsch restaurant and cocktail bar with great vibes. The cocktail list is extensive, with drinks to suit every taste. The gin cocktail list is particularly impressive! A great place to go to for drinks with friends.

Out with a group of work colleagues for Christmas dinner. We got a good spot upstairs with a table for 12 of us. Smoked salmon starter was very tasty. Turkey and ham dinner wasn't hot. Some of the guys sent theirs back to be heated but came back not much different. Pudding was very nice, white chocolate cheesecake. Nice setting... More

Came to Belfast for the Christmas markets and ended up here on our way back to the train station. Great cocktails and great crack.
