Went back to L'Etoile after a few years of a hiatus (after moving away from Belfast) and I am delighted to find that the place has maintained it's high standards! The food was fantastic and the service is so friendly. The staff will happily have a chat with you as their workload allows (yes, German lady - I'm thinking of you here in particular!)

Myself and my wife enjoyed the pate starters which comes with a lovely red onion marmalade. My wife then had beef bourguignon for main while I had the fillet steak (bleu) and mushroom sauce. Everything was fantastic. Even the side order of the chipped garlic potatoes was great. No dessert but 3 calypso coffees were ordered. The final bill came to just under 60 pounds.

Would I recommend it? Hell yes. Can't wait for an excuse to drive back to Belfast to do it all over again.

Merci, L'Etoile. Merci Beaucoup!

Dined at l'Etoile tonight for a friend's birthday and it wasn't just the restaurant that had reservations! We have had some great nights in L'Etoile in the past and also in a much missed sister restaurant called La Lune which is where the Cafe Belvedere is now on the Cregagh Road. Lately (within the past 5 years) it seems as though the establishment has given up worrying about health, safety and hygiene. I found fragments of glass tonight in my otherwise very enjoyable starter. No one enjoyed their meal after that although the staff were most apologetic. Shouldn't happen. We then discovered that some friends were rather sick the last time they ate steak at l'Etoile. When you consider the number of great value restaurants in Belfast, even BYO places, that offer delicious food and great atmosphere without the worry of personal injury, I cannot understand why l'Etoile remains so popular!
