This restaurant must be one of the best in Belfast. Situated in the University district the setting is perfect with service and food to match. The meal we shared with friends from Australia was of the highest standard and the friendly but knowledgeable service from the staff made for a really enjoyable evening.

So, seems like a strange header for such a nice restaurant, but really, it was delicious and creamy and yum. We had a party of 5 and shared a couple of bottles of wine with our meal. It was not too crowded, but had several large parties. Atmosphere was nice, waiter was attentive. Food was good. Dessert was very nice. Good place to bring a business party.

We were looking for a good seafood restaurant and chose Deanes. All three of us ordered 4 scallops (you are charged per scallop). They were good but nothing special, we've had better at other places. We weren't impressed.

Visited Deanes @ Queens with a friend on Friday night. We specifically picked it as we both really liked Chris Fearon on the Great British Menu so were delighted to see him at the pass.
Service was excellent, we had a pre dinner cocktail and they were very accommodating, as I required a non-alcoholic version.
Dinner was delicious! We had the Duck Rillette and squid to start, both great. Mains were the chicked papperadelle and pork belly, we nearly licked plates! Barely enough room for dessert, we both opted for ice-cream and sorbet, also excellent.
Service throughout was very good, really friendly and attentive without being over the top. So when got the bill we planned to leave a generous tip. Very disappointingly we noticed that the restaurant had already added a 10% service charge. This really annoyed us, 'gratuity' should be based on service levels and at the discretion of the diner, especially when there's only 2, I can just about understand adding it on a large party. As I said, we were leaving one anyway, we simply deducted the service charge from what we were intending to leave. It's the principal of the thing and it marred an otherwise perfect evening. Please Deanes - rethink this policy!!

We visited Deanes again recently for a friend's birthday meal and had another great experience. Food was good and with interesting flavour combinations. Service was also excellent and professional as ever. Great ambience overall and good wine list. Look forward to going back.
