“Eclectic menu, smart, modern decor and very courteous staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2011

Visited this restaurant for the first time today, for lunch. Two of us had the 3 course table d'hote lunch menu, which offered a good choice of starters and main courses, priced at £30 per person. The rest of us opted for the 2 course lunch menu, with a glass of wine for £11.95. All meals were well presented and food was of a very high quality. Full marks to the waiting staff for their welcome and attention.

“Dont go if youre hungry”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Went for a meeting with three friends. Ordered a burger of the menu at over £18.00, When it came my friend who ordered the same and I could not believe the size. I never knew you could get a burger bap so small. Side of chips were extra. My other friends order was all mixed up and went to the other table etc. Although the waitress was very helpfull this restaurant will need to look at value for money in this competive market on the Lisburn Road.

“Delicious Food, worth the price...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

Had a delicious meal in Hooples with mum and sister on a quiet Tuesday evening in November... The menu takes a bit of getting used to, a sort of a mixture of tapas style and regular dishes. The chicken breast served on the bone was some of the tastiest and best cooked chicken I have eaten, the monkfish was delicious, the selection of breads fantastic, and I believe the vegetarian mushroom tartlet was also very tasty.
It wasn't cheap but it was worth it for the freshness of the taste and the obvious quality of the ingredients.
The desserts were absolutely gorgeous- the chocolate fondant, made to order, was melt in the mouth, and the panna cotta a delight.
Well woth a visit, and a welcome change from the Lisburn Road's traditional offering, a brave move to open up in these tough times and heres hoping it pays off.

“Loved everything but the price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2011

Great to see that someone has opened such an eatery in the area.

I liked everything but the price. The staff were great ,very attentive and informative.

The portions are small and expensive but the quality of the food is excellent.

Not for children

I would go back and recommend that you try for yourself.
