Entered to a friendly welcome and quickly seated. There was a good selection of fast food with some healthy options. My burger and sweet potato fries were quickly served, tasty and a reasonable price. Ambience was modern and relaxing.

We've been coming here for a few years, have a loyalty card/app and in the past and was always good. However we were sorely disappointed on our visit today. Firstly the place was absolutely baltic inside and had to sit with our coats on, secondly, the portion sizes have got MUCH smaller. (Nothing like the picture above) There always used... More

Hi Scotquine, I'm sorry to hear that, unlike so many of our recent reviewers, you are not a fan of our new menu! If you were a little cold rife, we apologise, but we haven't quite anticipated the April chill that we're experiencing - then again, it is Northern Ireland! Our new menu is all about choice. Not only can... More

Found this place after a long day sightseeing and the burgers looked nice from the pictures in the window. We weren't disappointed by the burgers when they arrived and they were very tasty and juicy. The staff were very friendly and the service was good and it weren't a long wait to receive food. The local cider I tried was... More

Can't fault the food here. The burgers, fries and milkshakes are amazing as long as you see past a few things that need to be sorted like: the numerous white tiles missing from the counter. The whole wall that's plastered but not tiled. The shocking state of the toilet door and the pile of boxes stacked up by the kitchen.... More

We came over to Belfast for the Easter weekend and popped into city picnic for a bite to eat- overall the food was okay and reasonably priced, the only downfall I'd say is when I was giving my order over at the till, another customer had a question for the server, the person serving me stopped to help the other...

Quirky interior, picnic benches, epic coffee and delicious cheeseburgers - what more could you possibly want! The garlic fries are insanely good - get them. You won't regret it. In addition to all of this, the "Toast Tour" goes right past the window, making for great entertainment at least.

Nipped in today for a quick bite with a friend. First time we have both been in. Always passed but never tried until today. When you first walk in theres a table displaying freshly made burgers, salads, wraps and chips. I loved this!! You could see what you where going to get before ordering. Ok so the menu. Burgers to...
