We made two trips here during our three day trip to Belfast, each memorable. As you walk through the small fish shop that fronts the restaurant you can smell the sea in the midst of the city. The dining area downstairs has the feel of an old bar. The menu offers firm favourites and dishes of the day. On our first lunch I ate an amazing smoked eel salad nicoise, the eel was delicately smoked, the salad of waxy potatoes, green beans, olives, salad and small tomatoes with mayo set the eel off perfectly. It was a dish I didn't want to stop eating. I followed this with baked salmon, samphire and asparagus...gorgeous. On the next visit i had a sweet fresh half lobster with chips and salad and a rhubarb and apple crumble with ice cream. the wines were outstanding too and great value as was the food. The staff were attentive, warm and funny and we found ourselves in company with friendly happy diners. An outstanding place to eat, talk and enjoy.

Two delightful chaps run a Street Vendor van just outside the boatyard. Menu options all mostly seafood based and tried the Squid Chilli and Chips, great value for only £5, very tasty and a free bottle of water included. Decent.

The initial setting, in a slightly run down area & next to a noisy pub, did not inspire enthusiasm but do not be deterred! We had booked the restaurant upstairs, which is quieter & offers a more extensive menu than the bar, but dress there is very causal. The seafood was exceptional & the wine also very good. The youngish staff were friendly, knowledgeable & efficient. They do eat early, though - this was a Thursday night & the place was very quiet by 9:30pm.

We had been given a gift voucher for the Mourne Seafood Bar so decided to treat ourselves to lunch. Arriving late on Friday afternoon we had a 45 minute wait standing at the entrance. Surely it would be better to have a bar area to sit in. After being shown to our table we placed our order. Unfortunately after 20 minutes we asked about our starter. They had forgotten the order. This was addressed immediately and the cost removed from our bill. The food as always was excellent, tasty seafood chowder and delicious goats cheese starter followed by mussels in cream and white wine and scallops accompanied with a mint risotto and a fine bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Apart from the starter blip we enjoyed our meal. Definitely worth a visit but please address the wait outside.
