We visited this popular restaurant on the 22nd March. All our visits to date have been good and this started well with a small chowder absolutely filled with fish and just the right texture. We followed this with hake and plaice. Hake was good but plaice was skin and bones only. Plaice is never the most meaty of fish but... More

Menu was very poor for a fish restuarant, very plain. I had the steak and it was very fatty. There was a goldfish swimming/stuck in a wine glass - nothing in the glass but water, seemed very cruel.

Came for a late lunch and just so very glad I chose the Fritto Misto. The squid was melt in the mouth good and the whole dish was just lovely to eat and great value. Nice to have Asahi on tap which goes so well with fish. Excellent.

Second visit. Delicious food. Lovely service. Would def recommend. However.. seated at back of restaurant as we had a big party and the lighting needs to be seriously improved, far too dark. Even the candles on the table were in blue glass holders so there was almost no light. Lighting, temperature and background buzz/ music are so important to a... More

Was disappointed actually. Was taken here by some suppliers but expected a bit more. The starters were probably the best if the cources. I had Hake for the main, it was a bit over cooked one of my colleagues had fish & chips and it was significantly over cooked.The wine was okay as was the company.

Visited before going to a concert in the city centre - so location very convenient The food was delicious - left us wanting more. Salt and Chilli Squid a real hit and the scallops and belly pork was yummy. Plaice and Hake were excellent main courses. Highly recommend and look forward to returning

Due to office relocation to the centre of Belfast City, let myself to have a short walk around in search for business lunch. Unintentionally stoped right in front of Deanes entrance, where I saw advert of 6.50 lunch. Entered in and what a surprise, really large inside but with tables which deliver the sense of privacy. The main scene as... More

With a group of colleagues experienced this dining experience on 28/02/2017. As a non fish eater & not a great meat eater I did wonder if I would come away hungry...I should not have worried. Topped with great food, excellent service that any business would be proud of. Well done Dean's

I visit here often and love the £6.50 lunch. There is a good choice and the portion sizes are quite good. I had sardines on toast with chips and my friend had prawn open sandwich and chips. Finished off with tea. The tea is in a pot with a small teabag holder which makes it very weak. Would recommend giving... More
