We recently visited the Ox Restaurant for lunch after a busy morning shopping. The service was attentive but relaxed. It was our first visit and we were happily surprised at the informal feeling of the restaurant. However most importantly was the food and I'm glad to say it was superb. Everything was cooked to perfection. The portion sizes were thankfully restrained, allowing you to enjoy every taste and texture without feeling overly full. Well recommended and well done to the chef and his staff.

Took my parents here for a treat, had both the tasting menu and vegetarian menu with wine pairings. The vegetarian food was as excellent, inventive and interesting as the non-vegetarian, and the wine pairings were different for each course for the two menus, so clearly well thought out for the differences in food, while keeping the courses complimentary so it felt we were having similar experiences. The staff are very knowledgeable and the service impeccable, but also feels very relaxed and certainly not stuffy. Finished the night with a nice (though pricey!) drink next door in Ox Cave. Ox was certainly worth the money.

Love this place. Have been here for lunch and for Saturday nights also. I have had the most amazing food on each and very occasion, with great service, and all in a light and airy interior with great floor to ceiling windows and a view over the lagan. The atmosphere is relaxed despite the upmarket food. Couldn't fault this place, except that it is hard to get a booking!!

Excellent restaurant- 5 course Chef surprise meal, optional matching wine. Well priced as well. Scallop, crab, lamb and more. Well done to Fergus the Aussie sommelier. The restaurant is approx 15 min walk from city hall and central Belfast however well worth it - highly recommended!!
