Saturday night was my first time here but it certainly won’t be my last. We managed to get a table for 12 on Saturday night so a birthday meal and everyone was really impressed with everything at the Chelsea. To start off Terry looked after us incredibly well and manging to do little things which helped the evening such as... More

I booked the upper floor for my mums 70th birthday party and from initial contact with The Chelsea to the time we were pouring ourselves out the door, I was impressed. The venue itself is beautiful and the food supplied for the party was excellent but it's the staff that really make it top class. Nothing was too much trouble... More

I ate here last night with 11 friends and it was super! They had reserved us a lovely area and there was a really trendy city vibe about this busy but chilled wine bar! Our food was outstanding and reasonably priced! The staff and especially the manager could not have done more for us. I'll be back! Thank you !

Hadn't been to the a Chelsea for a while but it seems to have developed multiple personalities; a big TV showing football on one wall, an overly loud singer on the other side; less seating & a bit of a belief that it's a gastro pub. What does it wantbto be? Food was decidedly average & theres a very limited... More

We visited on a cold Sunday evening. We were a party of six , 4 adults and 2 teenagers. The service which was poor to start ( there was no-one to show us to our table and we were left standing at the bar for too long) but once we were seated the service improved. 4 of the mains were... More

The most pretentious and snobby bar in Belfast. Rude staff. Wouldn't go back again. Too expensive and full of people who have very high opinions of themselves.

For a big birthday me and a few friends booked a cocktail masterclass. We had 2 hours, our own bar and dedicated barman who let us pick any drinks and explained and showed us how to perfect them. We started with prosecco, made two cocktails each and ended with a main course from their menu. It was such a really... More

What a great night!! Food & wine was amazing great value for money. Cocktails definitely worth a taste. Waitress Anna and manager couldn't do enough for us, made our evening most enjoyable. Brian was the entertainment and he was such a friendly people person, had customers up singing along with him and generally having a fun filled night. Great to... More
