We had a pre- Ulster Hall Concert Tapas meal with friends. Great atmosphere, great food and service with a lively vibe! And all at a reasonable price. Will be back.

Had a hankering for a burger and my wife wanted pasts. Diane’s had it all. Very good food. I call it a gourmet burger and the fries were excellent. My wife had pasta that included Italian sausages. All very taste and well prepared.

I enjoyed the food at Deanes both times I ate there. A friend ate at thier high concept EPICE and also raved about it. I thought the menu was creative. Service was good, proices were fair for city center Belfast. I will go here again.

Enjoyed a meal here before a trip to theatre. Staff are friendly and there is doodle atmosphere. Plenty of choice on menu along with specials. Have been here a few times and it never disappoints

I decided to treat my mother for lunch here as she'd never been. It was Saturday lunchtime and was disappointed slightly that there was a limited menu, however it seemed to cover all the bases. I opted for the fish and chips, my mother the...More
