Dined with friends. The Waitress was over the top--use of the royal wee. Did not appreciate being challenged on how one part of a main course was cooked !!!!

My friends/colleagues took me here for a "special" Birthday a few Saturdays ago. I had always fancied trying it and do not know why I hadn't before now. We had the Pre-theatre menu and it was fabulous. Every course was excellent. If we had just one tiny criticism it would be that the food was just a bit salty for... More

We had four pretty faultless courses of quality ingredients well put together and presented on the plate. Everything was perfectly cooked and combined well together to form an excellent dinner. It is expensive and on our visit the service was a bit slack. But you get great food and if you can afford it or for a special occasion it... More

This is the best restaurant in N.Ireland . I have eaten here many times and it consistently impresses me . The staff are friendly welcoming and proud of the food they are serving . The menu is varied with many delicious and exciting dishes . This restaurant maintains high standards and has done so for a long time.

This place is a jewel in the crown of Belfasts restaurant scene. Everything sings, food - stunning, wine - stunning, service - excellent, atmosphere - perfectly intimate. The curried monkfish is just a triumph! Cant wait to visit again.

We ate an early dinner here on July 5th. Meal was very good...service excellent. The two-course "pre-theater" menu was a great value. If visiting Belfast in the future, I would dine again here in a heartbeat.

Visited Tedford's a few weeks ago with a group of friends. The food was beautiful. I had the Cod special and it was extremely tasty. A few in our group had steak however they didn't enjoy their food as much as those who had fish dishes. The service was excellent - very friendly and attentive waitress!! Would definitely recommend!!

Decided to visit here after reading such good reviews and getting a brilliant report back from my sister and brother in law. I had steak which although it was tender was honestly tasteless, my wife had the Lamb with couscous she said it tasted nice but was very fatty. I'm in no means ordinarily fussy or one to complain and... More
