“So poor that we had a refund!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

I visited this bar and restaurant with my Mother in August 2014. We paid more than £30 for one meal (Hunters chicken with chips), potato wedges with a dip and four small bottles of Prosecco. Almost as soon as we sat down after ordering at the bar, the food arrived. The waitress dumped the plates on the table with no cutlery, and didn't give us chance to ask her for any before she walked away. We were served chips instead of potato wedges and there was no dip. The Hunters chicken was clearly not fresh as there was hardly time to plate it up before it was served. As we had not had chance to open our drinks, we decided to get a refund and eat elsewhere. The staff were not particularly friendly and didn't take kindly at all to being asked for a refund (in fact one waitress told us that this was not possible!). We will not be returning to this bar and restaurant.

“Monopoly gone wrong”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Horrendously expensive for nothing but watered down drinks, unprofessional staff and a less than clean environment. If this wasn't the only bar in the airport they wouldn't receive a single customer. A real disgrace.

“So expensive - you should be ashamed”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We called in on the way out of Belfast - and the food was so bad and over priced. You have to queue to order and pay at the bar - and the distance from the kitchen to our table wasn't far but one of our meals was cold when it got there. it cost over £40 for 4x snacks and drinks. Highway robbers wear masks. I will put £40 in the charity box next time.

“Seriously... How can it be so poor”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Staff rude and unhelpful. It's lucky it's the only bar.
Tables not cleared.... Menus dirty
Just expect a bit more especially as it's called restaurant!! Baked potatoe...lasagne... Burger not really restaurant.
Food poor and cold
The attitude of staff really poor... They should remember they are in hospitality and look after the customers
