We went here on a Saturday night and it was a great find. Sweet potato ravioli and smoked chicken was excellent. Really friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.

Me and my fiancee have been at Barking Dog last year when we visited Belfast and decided to go again this time. Amazing food and atmosphere. We had Pan Fried Mackrell and Celeriac Soup with Truffle Oil to start, Braised Beef Brisket and Smoked Chicken with Sweet Potato Ravioli for mains and White Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert. It was amazing!... More

Great food, great service, romantic atmosphere. I accidentally overpaid the waiter, he chased us down outside to return money. Regardless of this kind gesture, an all round great place to eat.

Decided to give this restaurant a go as it was only round the corner. Really enjoyed the ambiance as it was very remincent of a romantic dinner with dimmed lighting and candles on table perfect for a couple. The food was expensive, however you certainly get what you pay for as the quality was amazing. Only thing I would have... More

I AS A avid food lover , cant fault it in any way , quality of the food, service ( laura was a great help ) , standards , food taste , etc etc etc . really have nothing to say except praises. However if iam being really really skimpy, probably need a bit bigger serving of tapas.

I've been here a number of times for family meals, work dinners and large group parties. The service is always fantastic, friendly and fast. The food, cocktails and wine menu are all good, with something for every taste and palate. Recommend booking in advance if you're going on a weekend, and highly recommend booking early if you want the private... More

Have been here multiple times with my girlfriend and I absolutely love it. The food is always exceptional. The tapas - are some of the best dishes I have tried. Would definitely recommend the brisket, Toulouse sausage and crab. Great vibe and drinks are nice - the solero cocktail is the best. Waiters on the whole are great and friendly.... More
