Very nice restaurant with a nice menu of local dishes with a twist but also international. Prices are ok - not cheap but ok. Quality of the food was good and portions big. Service was a bit slow but restaurant was full so having this in mind it was ok. Good location - try it

had lunch here on Tuesday 18th April. Quick service and good basic food. I had the smoked haddock which was served with baby boiled potatoes and we had a selection of breads and dips to start. All very nice.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. The food hit the spot. My husband claimed it was his favorite fish and chips so far on our trip. The servers were attentive and friendly. We liked the atmosphere and seating along the front windows.

Looking for a post dinner drink we came across Robinsons by chance. Being a Thursday evening it wasn't particularly busy but there was still a decent turnout watching the sport on the many TV's. Not being sure what beer to try the barman kindly let me have a few tastings and I was happy with my subsequent choice. A good... More

We popped in here while on a day visit to the city. On arrival the bouncer was really nice, but when we went in there was a strange smell, we didn't know if that was just the natural smell of the place or someone had a good too much drink or what. The pub was a mixer of clients, from... More

Slow service. Untrained and unhelpful staff and food expensive and bloody awful. Not what I expected from such a well known bar in the centre of belfast

Robinson's is a classic style pub with good service. What makes it special in addition to the very good bistro upstairs there is a live music bar at the back of the main bar..."Fibber Magee's". Great fun, music, dancing and generally good craic.
