“Yes!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Just yes. Why can't all restaurants do it like The Barking Dog? Lovely cocktail bar upstairs, great service, good atmosphere... Food is cracker too. There were 8 of us and we all raved about it. Split all the tapas with a friend - fantastic. Then had the pasta sausage special and rounded it off with the best Apple Tarte Tatin I've had. The girl serving us was friendly and knowledgeable. For three courses, coffee and a Barking Brew beer it was around £30. This restaurant should be in the top 5 with Ginger, Coppii, Mourne and 4th Wall. Blows Grand Chopin out of the water. Will return pronto.

“Nice meal but high price”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Went her with my girlfriend as part of a family get together. The decor is really nice and the restaurant has a nice feel to it. We were there on a sunday night and it was busy enough but not overbearingly so. The staff were prompt with their service and the beers was nicely chilled. Usually order a steak but being part of a group with the inherent bill splitting problems didnt want to be too extravagent. Opted for the char-grilled chicken instead and wasnt dissapointed. All in all it was a delicious meal. My only problem is that the price was a bit steep. Have visited many of the main restaurants in Belfast and usually enjoy a steak as stated at the same price i paid for chargrilled chicken. Not a major complaint but given the variety of restaurants around belfast i'd have to say value for money wise this place is lacking.

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I visited the barking dog a few weeks ago with my bf and instantly loved the setting of the restaurant. It really is beautifully decorated. Our server, possibly a manager or sulervisor was brilliant. He was friendly, polite and could explain everything on the menu to us in full detail, the service was exceptional. He recommended the beef shin burger which they slow cook over 3 days snd it was soo good snd tasty. Dessert was really good too. Definitley would return and reccomend to friends.

“Fantastic food and even better cocktails”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We showed up on a Sunday night without a reservation. The place was full so we had a couple of cocktails upstairs while we waited for a table. The upstairs cocktail bar is very cosy and atmospheric, especially with all of the candles. Adam was super friendly and extremely helpful in recommending cocktails to suit our tastes and the four cocktails we had were fantastic. The food downstairs was great too but the cocktails were the highlight!

“Good food (and good veggie options)”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Visited with a vegetarian friend for a quick meal. We both had excellent food (great choice of dishes for vegetarians!) and the service was very friendly without being intrusive. I would definitely like to return to taste some of the other options on the menu!
