“I was able to eat Alex Greene’s GBM-winning Incredible Edible Book and it was just as delicious as it looked, topping off a great meal!” – Michael Deane’s flagship destination in the city-centre won nothing but praise for its ambitious and much-accoladed cuisine, with chef Alex offering an à la carte selection or menu surprise at quieter times, but with the main event being the £100 per head tasting menu. Eipic itself is on the top floor of a three-floor operation run by Deane, and you enter via the other spaces.

The flagship destination in the city-centre restaurant complex opened by pioneering Belfast chef Michael Deane 25 years ago, Eipic now has rising head chef Alex Greene at the helm, turning out “exceptional” and stylish cuisine – “I’ve eaten half a dozen Michelin star meals this year and Eipic edges it for me – better value for money, and you can dip in and out of the matching wines rather than having £90 added to the bill for taking all the pairings”. Sceptics can find it “a bit uptight and textbook, even if the food is well-cooked”“you get into Eipic (and indeed go to the toilet) by walking through another Deanes restaurant, and each time I did so I wanted to stay there instead!”

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
