Quite busy early Thursday evening, in this airy basement setting. Pleasant, friendly waiter and maitre d', and prompt, but not rushed, service.
Delightful starters of terrine, also deep fried, shredded lamb, which was quite superb, somewhat reminiscent of Chinese style crispy duck.
Bavette steaks were beautifully done and presented, coming with galette potato, but surpassed by the fish special, pan-fried hake, with nicely stuffed thick courgette slices and dauphinoise potatoes.
Great desserts, and good wine list, predominantly French.
Great value, quality fare.

As a solo traveller, I really appreciated the warmth & friendliness of the Wait staff at La Bastille. No reservation was no problem for a diner who walked in off the street. I was served the largest gnt I've ever seen! The menu looked amazing, I chose the goat pie, beautifully presented & just delicious. The creme brûlée was perhaps the best I've had. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We were invited here by friends who had purchased a discount voucher for the restaurant. A discount voucher and you question possibly the standard of food etc. No need service, quality of the food, presentation of the food and exceptional value for money.

We only arrived in Belfast that day and were in walking distance from the restaurant which was suggested by our hotel Gregory.

We were pleased to be slotted in and noticed that they were also catering for an 80th birthday party of 16 people of all ages. However, this did not affect the standard of service to us, nor was the group noisy.

We very much enjoyed our meal and would visit again if we were in the area.
