I had starter, main course, and dessert here - and some olives :) Dessert was very nice, honeycomb ice-cream with chocolate sauce, starter (lentil fritters) very good. The sweet potato gnocci was amazing! there was also a sweet potato gnocci option with pork i think on the same menu. Back to the veggie one... with spinach, crunchy green beans, and... More

We were here for a friend's birthday lunch. We ordered a selection of tapas to share for a starter, which we all enjoyed. I had the sweet potato gnocchi with pork as my main and it was delicious (I would go back again just for this dish), and shared the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. The cocktails were also very...

We ate here on Saturday for tea. As mentioned in previous reviews the staff were attentive and courteous and the food that we were served was fine. The main issue was the portion sizes and prices. 2 starters with tiny amounts of food served on each, disguised with lots of dressings, leaves and micro herbs.. cost £15.50. Main courses were...

Delightful lunch with my wife and daughter. Charming service, very attentive knowledgable waitress. Simple sounding mushroom soup followed by fish pie doesn't do justice to the wonderful flavours served. Heaps of super soft prawns, salmon, mixed white fish and mussels, with a rich cheesy crust Succulent steak sandwich , and chilli prawns with pineapple salsa Thank you for a great... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal to celebrate a family birthday. Great atmosphere and good service. We had squid ink pasta, steak and the burger. Good choice of wines.

We came here on Saturday night. The staff were very attentive and professional but the food and wine was extremely over priced for what it was.

Several people had told me to visit here so having a late appointment in Belfast we tried it. A Monday night we thought would be empty but not so. We were pleasantly surprised at the menu selection, but settled for a well filled fish pie with almost everything imaginable in it and a shredded shin burger with chunky chips. We... More

A little bit further out of the center but only a short cab ride. Rather eclectic menu but great staff, great ambience and you have to try the creme brûlée..

We went with no reservation but it was Monday night! If you are thinking of going on the weekend maybe you should call in and reserve a table! Their pasta is magnificent (could eat every day) but the shin beef burger is also divine! Great environment! Would definitely come back!

Stopped off here for dinner and failed to see the big deal. I thought the tapas were very underwhelming. For example, the crab tapas were over chilled and wet, not creamy wet, watery wet. Pork belly was almost entirely fat. Did enjoy the olives, they were decent. Kids ordered off the kids menu, one had chicken goujons, they were supposed... More
