Last night a large party of work colleagues had the chance to eat in the restaurant. The food is absolutely excellent and well worth every penny. Lovely fresh fish, cooked beautifully. Also attentive and polite service. The only thing that was not great is the acoustic sound in the far end of the restaurant where our tables were positioned. The... More

Went for lunch a few weeks ago, menu didnt have a wide variety on it, but the food was certainly a good standard. A little too much on the expensive side however. Staff ok.

Food was absolutely gorgeous, sweet potato gnocchi in particular was to die for! Service was super friendly but a little slow once mains were cleared. Completely forgiven as it was a surprisingly busy monday night and staff were kept on their toes! Will definitely be back

The food was phenomenal! This was the best meal I've ever had in Belfast, and restaurants in the city have grown tremendously in the last decade, so competition is stiff. The restaurant itself is cozy, charming, and welcoming, and the staff are genuinely warm and friendly. I was traveling by myself on a weekend night, and I never felt awkward.... More

We originally heard about this restaurant while touring in Cork – from a manager of a restaurant in Cork City. I think it’s worth noting that the burgers are probably one of the best I have had. There were gluten free options for one of our party who doesn’t have gluten in his diet. The overall atmosphere was welcoming, however,... More

We picked this restaurant randomly and it was the best decision ever! Food was superb, atmosphere was really pleasant and comfortable and their local brew was great. Their staff is so friendly and nice and we really felt relaxed and enjoyed every bit of it. Also, interior looks awesome. Well done lads! Next time in Belfast definitely coming back!

This is a real 21st century, trendy, fast-paced, buzzing, little gem of restaurant of consistent high quality right in the heart of the beautiful Queen's University District of Belfast, where you can enjoy consistently high quality food served by good, hard-working staff non-stop from lunch on to dinner. Definitely a must-go-to restaurant every time I visit Belfast.
