Through the hole off High Street known as Joys Entry is this eatery, winner in 2009 of restaurant of the year in Northern Ireland. It should win again. The large and open space with central bar area surrounded by tables, booths and alcoves seems a pub but don't be fooled. It's fare is far from that. Only the fish and chips and the burgers (themselves a gourmand's delight) would qualify as such. We enjoyed the steak special: two porterhouses grilled medium rare, smothered in big marinated mushrooms, with tripled baked fries and salad, all perfectly prepared, including a bottle of the house red, €29. The pasta dish was a risotto-like delight, heavily flavoured with mushroom, fried goat cheese and brocolli with just a hint of rosemary. The chili squid and shrimp rocket was out of this world and plentifully heaped on the plate. The attentive service by 3 lovely Belfast lasses also make this restaurant one of the best in the six counties.
