Featured Belfast Restaurants
Spanish restaurant in Belfast
3 Capital House, Unit 2 Upper Queen Street - BT1
“Really buzzing, even at 6pm” – this October 2017 newcomer, complete with kitchen on display, is achieving a strong reputation with its Spanish-influenced, modern cuisine (with an emphasis on meaty fare). “Try anything slow-cooked in ‘Bertha’ (their coal oven) – it melts in the mouth”.
. Mourne Seafood Bar
Fish & seafood restaurant in Belfast
34 - 36 Bank Street - BT1
A famous, informal dark-wood seafood joint which sources its produce direct from the owners’ beds, and also has a sibling near County Down’s Dundrum Bay; marks remain super-stellar, but feedback a tad limited.
. Howard Street
British, Modern restaurant in Belfast
56 Howard Street - BT1
This modern brasserie is a well-known local destination and fans say that “other restaurants could learn a lot from the quality of the service”. It received a boost from a revamp this year which has significantly upped its comfort levels.
. Five Guys Belfast
Burgers, etc restaurant in Belfast
Victoria Square Shopping Centre, 1 Victoria Square - BT1
“Elevating the fast food experience” – this fast-growing US-based chain provides “a better class of quick burger” (with a good variety of toppings), plus “fries that are so savoury, and so-tasty milkshakes almost too thick to suck through a straw!” (“just don’t watch the calories…”). On the downside, “the ambience leaves a lot to be desired: it feels like a less glamorous McDonalds!”
. James Street
French restaurant in Belfast
19-21 James Street South - BT2
In August 2018, Niall and Joanne McKenna reformatted and refurbished their well-known local destination, converting the fine dining restaurant and its neighbouring bar and grill into a single operation to meet what they see as a growing the demand for a more bistro-style rather than fine dining experience. The venture inspired mostly positive feedback this year, but we’ve left it un-rated as the change of format beds in.
