So we now have a young family so we don't get out that often so when we do we want it to deliver. Tedfords has never disappointed before, but if anything they have upped their game since our last visit. I had scallops followed by roast monkfish curry then chocolate orange parfait. That simple sentence does no justice to the... More

Group of five friends visited during Belfast Restaurant Week for the Tedfords tasting menu. We are all foodies and all of us thought that the food was beautifully presented and so tasty. One of our party was allergic to Shellfish and they were well catered for. Cant praise this enough. The night was made by Marc or Marcus as he... More

One of several visits here, this time with kids and my parents. Thai curry monkfish very tasty, steak a joy - all courses very much enjoyed. Prices appropriate for good quality city centre restaurant. Nice cocktails as well and acceptable wine list. Staff helpful and friendly.

Tedfords is a friendly up-market restaurant slightly out of the city centre in Belfast. It was busy the night we were there and, judging by the accents, mainly with local customers. The food was European in style but with an original take on all the dishes. The service was slightly chaotic - for example they brought and served the wrong... More

Food was excellant. Had a starter and main course. Very good. However after they cleared the main. Disaster the staff never came back to us. They were too busy with new customers. We waited half an hour. Still no staff they vanished. Never asked if we would like a dessert or more drinks. We just got up and paid and... More

We had a reservation for four, at 7:30 on Saturday evening. As it was our first visit to Belfast a colleague recommended Tedfords Restaurant. We were promptly seated at a table on the ground floor by the window. The menu offered variety and catered for all our requirements. The service was good, and we were not hurried. The meals were...

We are regular customers of Tedfords and food is consistently good. We would prefer upstairs to downstairs which is where we were last time. My only criticism would be the service. Staff forget to come back, you have to ask for bread ask for desert menus etc but the food is so good we overlook the mistakes and return again... More
