“Great find!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Lovely meal last night at Molly's Yard. Didn't know it was there. You walk through a little alleyway into a courtyard where you could eat al fresco, weather permitting. We went inside to the cosy downstairs eaterie (there is a larger room upstairs) and were welcomed and shown to a nice corner table. Even when the room was full we didn't feel cramped. Small but intimate sums it up. Great service from the waitress who seemed able to read our minds and help us decide as we struggled to choose from an excellent menu. A lovely meal followed, great flavours, good sized portions and unusual touches. We will definitely return.

“My favourite Belfast eatery.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Only thing bad with here is it doesn't open Sundays! Food is awesome, hefty portions for the hungry, impeccable quality and care goes into every dish I've ever had here. Beers are ace too, setting is either intimate in the wee bar, more snooty in the upstairs room or al fresco in the yard, so something for every occasion. My favourtie place to eat, still, in Belfast.

“A really good meal and great service”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Ate here on the advice of my son who said it was really good; and it was! Wanted the seafood chowder that was not on the menu that evening and they made it fresh for me which was delicious. It is always nice when they go that extra mile. Had a seafood linguine main which was also really nice- can't fault it except I was not keen on their own brewed stout.

“tip top food, great service”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

New to Belfast, it was simply great to find Molly's Yard. The food was wonderful and service was perfect on two occasions, once in the evening upstairs for a pre-theatre menu and once in the afternoon in the bar. The price was great too. The chorizo, spinach and sunblushed tomato linguine was the best I have ever tasted. The wild garlic marinated chicken breast with basil mash and a ratatouille dressing was a complete treat, with very fresh, amazingly well combined flavours. The lemon posset was outstanding. From the bar menu the next day I had probably the best triple decker bacon and tomato sandwich I have ever eaten, with a delicious glass of house red. terrific stuff, and a great introduction to Belfast cuisine. Well done everybody
