Wow! This restaurant has to be the best in Belfast. Every single dish we had was delicious. And all so different. The service was fantastic and the design of the interior is really striking and fun. Definitely get a dessert because the care taken with the plating is so playful! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in the city! Thank you!

I ate here with friends after wandering past several restaurants. So glad we stopped. The food was delightful and filling without being heavy.
I ordered the small sized (they gave the option of small, medium or large - love that!) fish and chips. I selected cod. I also got a side salad. The batter on the fish was very tasty, not greasy at all. The salad was filled with delicious things and had a dressing that brought out the freshness of the vegetables.
Our server was friendly and attentive.
Highly recommend!

Starters were nice if not a little expensive for what they were. Mains were very, very average with one being sent back. After a wait another tasteless dish was brought out, without a server checking if it was ok. Server then informed us of a complimentary drink to make up for it, which we then charged for. Overall, quite expensive and not one to remember.

Fish City is situated right in the heart of the main shopping district in Belfast. We had a late evening dinner reservation elsewhere, but we decided to pop in around 4 p.m. to try a bite there, as we knew it is a very popular and very highly rated fish and chips shop. It did not disappoint. We got the excellent front window table, so we could watch all of the passers by while we waited for our food. Fortunately, they had a small portion of fish and chips, which was just perfect, since we would be eating again later on. It was excellent. My idea of great fish and chips is perfectly battered fish, fried without a hint of grease remaining, and some yummy chips with malt vinegar on the side (oh, and the mushy peas were quite good as well). I had a local cider (can't recall the brand) to wash it all down, and it was perfect for giving us a bit of energy to forge ahead with our tour of Belfast (Belfast is a great walking city, so we did alot of that). Our server was wonderful as well. Very friendly and efficient. Just sad that I did not get to try a couple of other things on the menu, such as the seafood chowder. We'll definitely be back the next time we visit Northern Ireland!
