Popped in for a late night drink on Culture Night. Budvar! Bar very well organised, They were busy but didn't take too long to get served. Have been there for food and it was great as well.

Visited here this afternoon with friends. Did a recce visit earlier to find it and it was very busy so decided to book for an early meal - no problem booking a table for 5pm. Finished shopping early and headed to McCrackens at just after 4pm - decided to have a drink whilst we waited for our friends to arrive.

We were promptly taken to our table, duly reserved, and had a drink whilst pondering the menu. This is proper gastro-pub with a great selection from the main menu and some nice specials. Our party of 4 each had a different dish - all judged to be great quality and the service pretty good also.

Glad we booked in advance - prospective diners arriving after us were advised there would be a wait of around 1 hour for food.

Great spot tucked away in an atmospheric entry. Nice decor, decent service and prices that seem to be pitched on the low side of reasonable given the quality of food and presentation.

Hidden gem and we wil be back.

I really liked the atmosphere and the the cafe bar/bistro setting, it was friendly and the service was very good indeed. The dining tables are well set out. There are a variety of seating options for diners, catering for two people all the way through to large groups - plus some high top tables and high stools for people who just want a beer. The food was top drawer and really fresh. The presentation was of a standard that I would normally associate with a high class restaurant. For two courses and a glass of wine the total bill came to £14, which I think is excellent value for money. So it caters for all tastes from drinkers to diners, but be aware that last orders for food mid week are at 6.45pm.

This bar/ restaurant is definitely worth a visit. I understand that it has been renovated reasonably recently and I absolutely loved the decor. It is very tastefully done and the walls are adorned with pictures of James Joyce and other famous Irish men. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the food was gorgeous and very reasonable. I have already been back and would go again when in Belfast. It is also very central.
