Tried the 5 course Tasting menu . Each course was beautifully presented and very tasty . Wine menu selection was very good and the sommelier helped us with our choice as we decided not to have the wine pairing. When we finished our meal the staff reserved us a table in Ox Cave, next door for cheese and biscuits .... More

We dined here for my birthday treat. The tasting menu was all that was on offer and I wish my husband had told me that it was £50 a head. Our bill in total was £180 and at the risk of sounding like a philistine I was fantasising about a bag of chips on the train on the way home.... More

We had a fantastic lunch at Ox. The food was excellent and so was the wine that accompanied each dish. The best meal we have ever had in Belfast. One of the best meals we have had anywhere in the world. We would highly recommend Ox.

Really looked forward to trying tasting menu at Ox for a birthday treat. Food was really tasty and beautifully presented. Fish dish was star of show. However, we were literally starving from start to finish. Each course was only 3-5 mouthfuls at most. I have been to fine dining experiences before including tasting menus and have never left feeling as... More

Not often I review a restaurant while I am still here. Was a great experience from start to finish . Staff excellent - happy to explain all the courses and very knowledgeable. Ox tongue perfect with silky mash , duck soft and set off well with quince and beautifully prepared veg. Pushed the boat out and went for desert which... More

Having just eaten in Ox this evening, we were expecting a gastronomic experience well above our normal Belfast restaurants, however we were very disappointed. On arrival, we had pre dinner drinks in Cave before moving into the restaurant. Having requested the wine list together with a conversation with the sommelier , we chose a bottle of wine in their mid... More

Me and my Fiancee had a fantastic lunch. Portions were not huge but it that is to be expected at a Michelin star restaurant. Waitress attentive and very friendly waiter/barman very friendly and extremely helpful on wines. Great experience

Four of us went for the tasting menu last weekend. It was our first time in Ox and having read reviews we were really looking forward to the experience. Interior is quite minimalist and furniture quite bare including the seats which are wooden with no cushion which was the first thing we all commented on as we were going to... More
