My friend had booked this restaurant for my surprise birthday party. We were a group of 9 lively girls ready to have a great night, and I must say we had a ball. The staff were so friendly and offered great service, we all enjoyed our meals and I must say the goats cheese dish was gorgeous. I would recommend... More

Food was excellent and nothing was too much bother. Chatted with the Manager/Owner Alex who reminded us that there was a special Valentine's menu in the... More

A friend recommended breakfast in another iconic location which wasn't serving breakfast during the winter. We came here because the breakfast sounded good in the menu. The food was great - excellent breakfast items with plenty of coffee and very reasonably priced. Well worth eating here.

My wife and I were seated at a private, corner table, in a warm and welcoming environment by friendly, assured waiting staff. We both opted for the Grilled Halloumi cheese starter, which was divine,... More

I have been a regular at the Allotment since shortly after it opened, from a party of 2 to a party of 22, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Everything is great - from the cosy ambience of the Bistro itself, to the friendliness and thoughtfulness of the staff and the food is second to none - it’s a... More

As above. Food really brilliant and very fresh and staff very friendly. And the main chef Alex is very friendly and always there to help. Defiantly recommend this restaurant. Steaks and the seafood is brilliant. Don't go to Belfast without giving this place a try.
