Food was okay (though my husband didn't like his) but staff were really nice. not much atmosphere and it's much too bright, need to tone down the lights a bit. We were a bit disappointed in our overall experience but I wouldn't dissuade anyone from going though,

Always loved the trip down to Speranza in Belfast. Atmosphere, food, staff and overall visit experience was hard to beat. So when we headed down the newly rebranded Speranza - now Brooklyn Sq - I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Although with same owners I thought we couldn't go wrong. Met by James, member of management, at the entrance... More

First time in Brooklyn Square, very impressed. Loved the decor & the food. I had the chilli chicken. The staff were brilliant too, very friendly and attentive. There was a good looking dark bearded guy eating with an older couple in my sight line too so this enhanced my experience!! Will definitely be back (hope the guy is too!)

Although very reasonably priced and large portions, food was bland. The soup tasted like it was from a packet and nothing had much flavour. Maybe an off day. Will try again as it looks good. Just doesn't deliver in my eyes

I went to Brooklyn Square for the first time on Saturday 6th May 2017. I was taking my partner out for a birthday meal. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to our table. The service was a tad slow taking drink orders and then for the starter to arrive which is the only reason... More

Never have I went away from somewhere so full of praise- I've literally told anyone and everyone about this place since eating here on Friday afternoon. From arriving in, the guy front of house was so friendly and welcoming!! It's really lovely inside too how it's all done up! Quickly sat at the window, we were all so spoilt for... More

We ate in Brooklyn Sq on a recent trip to the city. It was a great meal. It was a very busy Saturday night and we had no reservation. They could accommodate us but with a short wait. We waited in the bar upstairs where a very friendly and helpful barman served us some drinks and we could sit and... More
