We booked in advance (essential) and were seated on the ground floor. Mr Bouquet was attracted by the Hilden ales but unfortunately not many were available on draught. The cocktails are mostly gin based, which I don't like, but I did find a rum based cocktail called Dark n Stormy which hit the spot. They're only offering a Christmas menu... More

Good service and atmosphere but food very disappointing. Starter portions miserable and overpriced. Mains killed by over salting.

Went for a meal last night, first time here. Entered and were advised to go upstairs to a small, cramped dining room. First thing you noticed was how warm it was, very uncomfortable. Menu was very limited, only 4/5 mains. Ordered two starters of pulled beef with pasta which was bland and lacked anything special. Other starter of beef cheeks... More

No horse meat here!!. Goats cheese starter was great and the harissa baked hake on butter beans was to my liking although not hot enough but the very friendly staff supplied a side of harissa. Staff got to know we were visiting to celebrate a birthday and surprised us with a "Happy Birthday" motif in chocolate around the sweet plate.... More

This was our first evening of a visit to Belfast and we selected the restaurant on the basis of its good reviews. It certainly didn't disappoint. We decided not to have starters, which meant that we waited a little while for our mains, it seemed. However, the food was definitely worth the wait - it was so well presented and... More

Cosy place and friendly staff. Good menu and tasty looking specials. Chowder starter and goats cheese starter lovely but burger basically a big dry meatball on a bit of garlic bread. Weird. Shame really as the other stuff looked nice. Got that "aww wish I'd ordered something else" doom.
