The best restaurant in Belfast. Each plate of food is a masterpiece in terms of presentation and flavour. Really laid back environment with attentive, friendly staff.

Would recommend the wine pairing with the tasting menu. The surprise of what you are getting combined with a perfectly selected glass of wine cannot be beaten.

I had the misfortune of visiting this restaurant with good friends and can honestly say I have never had a worse dining experience! The food itself was quite tasty but the portions were miniscule!! We opted for the tasting menu at £49.50 a head, this worked out about £10 a course for 5 courses. Course 1 was a scallop with a sliver of beetroot, course 2 a 1 inch piece of celeriac, with the final 3 courses following along a similar theme. All agreed that a carry out on the way home might be in order as no one felt fed. We eat out on a regular basis both at home and abroad and certainly won't be rushing back to ox!!! If you want a meal to savour and enjoy best give this one a miss. Try James Street South for a much more satisfying and delicious dining experience!

What a delightful evening of surprises at this not-too-fussy upscale tasting menu restaurant. Creative chef takes local ingredients to great levels. Service was outstanding too!

This is our third visit to Ox and they are really starting to shine. The portions of food are generous and you could not fault any of the courses that we ate today. The lovely Agnes, in charge of bookings and in our case amendments/changes/differing timings and finally us being late was magnificent. She is responsive, telephones are answered and e-mails returned (other restaurants please copy).

We wanted a fine dining experience whilst on holiday and Ox certainly didn't disappoint. The tasting menu is well constructed and the dishes cooked to perfection. Don't expect to come out feeling as if you've eaten a big meal, but those who criticise Ox for this completely miss the point. Expect lovingly crafted, technically proficient dishes, using fine ingredients. The point of dining like this is to savour the flavours and appreciate the skill involved in creating them. Expect to be waited on attentively, expect to be told about the food and wines, expect to appreciate the experience with other diners. With a well chosen flight of wines to accompany the amazing dishes, this will be an extraordinary dining experience.
