Stopped here after a good night out in Belfast and I had the lovely Sunday Roast. I had the beef brisket which was the special, the others had the burger and the pastas all lovely. The atmosphere and the service (Jessica) was all top class. Thanks a million

Looking for some delicious vegetarian and vegan food? Try Buskers restaurant, university Avenue, Belfast (previously known as Beatrice Kennedy's). They have a vegetarian menu and are in the process of compiling a vegan one. The chef was lovely and asked what we would like so he could see if he could rustle it up.

Went here for a birthday dinner, had a booth at the back of the restaurant. The waiters were very friendly and attentive, and the food was tasty.

Lovely little place, very friendly and attentive staff. I was sat near the kitchen and had a chat with the chef about the beef. Slowly cooked for 12 hours it's a real treat and well worth a visit.
