My boyfriend and I stumbled upon 'The Barking Dog' a few months ago and it has now become our favourite place to dine!!!! From entering the restaurant we were so impressed by the quirky, cosy decor. Candles in wine bottles, a red brick wall, rustic gold mirror frames and chandeliers, all added to its rustic chram and overall ambience. The menu didnt disappoint either the 'salt and pepper' scampi served on a wooden skillet simply melted in my mouth and It is the nicest Ive ever tasted!The toilets were gorgeous too with a little case filled with deodorant, hairspray and other toiletries to help freshen up. The staff couldnt have been nicer or anymore accomodating and we havent stopped raving about it to family and friends ever since our first visit! We have now adopted it as 'our restaurant' and we are hoping to celebrate a meal there very soon! We would like to thank the management, staff and interior designer for making our experience here so magical and memorable. We cant wait to make our next booking!!!

I was overwhelm with satisfaction when we visited the Barking Dog in Belfast. Just south if the Queens University quarter. The atmosphere is uniquely quaint and comfortable. The drink menu small but spectacular. The food is a gastronomical delight. No joking, this wee place is worth a visit over and over. We can't wait to leave Arkansas, USA and go back. Thanks.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in Belfast and we had dinner at The Barking Dog both nights. We stayed in a B&B just around the corner so it was very conveniently located. We didn't make a reservation on either night and staff squeezed us in, as they were very busy. Even so, are meals arrived quickly and were tasty with fresh ingredients. The menu was varied and modern. Loved the mismatched furniture and candles in bottles on tables which added to the atmosphere.

We had two wonderful meals here! It was so good we wanted to go back a third time but time didn't allow. Limited menu but all items looked delicious and the items we were able to try were fantastic! Its a small place, so definitely make a reservation if you plan on dinner. The selection of wines and beers was just right as well. The staff was very friendly with great service. Nothing but good things to say about this place!
