Featured County Down Restaurants
1. Noble Irish restaurant in Holywood 27a Church Rd - BT18
“An amazing local eatery where you can always guarantee to find awesome local food cooked to perfection, and exceptional front of house staff” – so say fans of Pearson Morris and Saul McConnel’s small modern bistro above the Iona health food store.
2. Five Guys Belfast Burgers, etc restaurant in Belfast Victoria Square Shopping Centre, 1 Victoria Square - BT1
“When all you want is an old-school burger”, these US-based arrivals of recent years really “hit the spot” – you can “build your own”, with “tons of accessories”; plus “seriously addictive fries”, “thick milkshakes”, and “more soda flavours than is reasonable”. “The eat-in experience is as depressing as McDonald’s”, though, in fact perhaps more so – “some branches have a strangely gloomy ambience” – but fans feel that “if you don’t mind 1980s-rock, a trip can still be surprisingly fun”.
3. Jean-Christophe Novelli at City Quays French restaurant in Belfast 21 Clarendon Road - BT1
Celebrity chef JC Novelli has added his name to the hotel restaurant that has opened in the Belfast City Quays regeneration; the site features double-height windows with views across the river and a French-style brasserie menu.
