Wonderful food and surroundings, try the tasting menu, you get to try a different wine with every course, its expensive but worth it.

Would thoroughly recommend having lunch in the great room just to experience the opulent surroundings, the food is pretty good too and there is a terrific 3 course menu for under £25. The building and the decor are spectacular, you do feel like you should whisper as it is all very civilised with everyone having lunch or afternoon tea but we were a little noisier celebrating a birthday and no one seemed to mind. The staff were very efficient. This is a fabulous treat for anyone visiting the city.

We had an amazing dinner at the Great Room. The food was delicious - one of the best meals we have ever had and we travel worldwide and eat out extensively. The ingredients were local - farm to table - and expertly prepared. Highly recommended are the scallops; the sea bass was also stellar. The chocolate fondant was worth every calorie even if it takes days to work it off. An impressive wine list cut across a wide range of regions, grapes and prices
Customer service was exemplary.
Special thanks to Kathryn W for facilitating this very special meal. She went above and beyond to facilitate our requests; we ended up having a most memorable experience
We recommend The Great Room and suggest you dine here when in Belfast.

Had the tasting menu with wines that was featured for Belfast Restaurant week. every course was delicious and portion sizes just the right amount for a tasting menu. The service was impeccable! all the staff were excellent.....attentive without being over bearing. a special mention for the waiter from Hungary, sorry I cant remember his name, but he was so knowledgeable and helpful. looking forward to going back!

Really good, lovely old world charm, service was excellent, room is just gorgeous, couldn't find any fault really, it was also relaxed and lack the stuffiness of some upmarket restaurants.
