Title: Restaurants in Belfast?
Post by: The Gs Man on January 13, 2009, 01:11:55 PM
Can anyone recommend a decent restaurant in Belfast for dinner?

It's for the wife's birthday, so nothing too pricey.... :)

For a bit of class in beautiful surroundings thats noit extortionate like Deanes ou can't beat Bourbon beside The Crown.   The Square on Dublin road is a little more plain inside but grea food.
 
If you like seafood try the Mourne Seafood Bar beside Kellys cellars.  Very reasonable and a great atmosphere.

If you are a complete tight arse go onto www.5pm.co.uk but yr missus wont be too impressed when the restaurant announce you are on the cheapo menu for her birthday! :P

Nicks Warehouse is very good & Deanes Deli is nice and isnt too expensive, compared to the main restaurant anyway.

For something different, try Made in Belfast, down the street beside the Northern Bank.  It's quirky and the food is lovely - they serve chips in tin cups and burgers on Belfast Baps.  Not too dear either.

Or Zen chinese on Adelaide Street, which was my favourite restaurant until Made in Belfast came along.

Have to agree, the food and atmosphere in bourbon is top notch but i find it depends a lot on the table you get.

Is Zen not Japanese?

Best Chinese is Macau on the Ormeau Road.

Always liked L'Etoile also. Not sure if it is still there.

I guess to give it it's correct name it's "fusion" - not strictly Japanese but prob more so than chinese (though you can get sweet and sour!) so I stand corrected.

L'Etoile is still there surely.  It has never been a favouite of mine cause of the limited menu that hasn't changed since I've known the place.  But I can see why people like it.

Quirky food but lacking in quality.  Like pub food but at 2-3 times the price.   Your mum could make it!

Tony Romas i a good spot, though the chips are american style as well, those dopey wee fries!!

Have to say Villa Italia was probably the best spot I ate in Belfast, great food and the service was excellent, plus the food was the quickest I have ever got! Both times I went...

Honourable mentions to Conor on Stranmillis and Scallinis (same ppl own that as Villa Italia)

Totally disagree.  Sure you could say a chinese restaurant is like a takeaway only twice/3 times the price!  I can't believe you'd diss Made in Belfast yet recommend Bourbon.  Was there two weeks ago and had a very average dinner.

Title: Re: Restaurants in Belfast?
Post by: Puckoon on January 13, 2009, 05:46:47 PM
Bourbon is still on the go then - it was a great spot back in the early 2000's.

Benedicts used to do great food back then too.

I'm suspicious of "quirky" as I'd say most on here are. I'd rather have good food cooked well without resorting to "twists" like putting chips in tin cups! Are bowls very 2008 in Belfast?!

Aye i would tread carefully if someone decribed a reataurant as "quirky", in fact i think i would make a point of not going to it. I think a restaurant should primarily be judged on the quality of its food, not what "wacky" object they serve it in.

A burger is still a burger even if you put it in a mouldy belfast bap and charge £10 for it.   As I said, pub food with a bit of retro decor.

Right, fair enough, I was just saying!   :'(

Bourbon's one of those places Gordon Ramsey would tear to shreds in "Kitchen Nightmares" - about 30 things on the menu for main course (including a burger for £10.95 UTB, if you take a look!).

I work in the city centre and eat out a fair bit in different places around there - Made in Belfast is a welcome addition and at the top of my list.  Dinner in a restaurant is about more than just the food - and MIB is nice for somewhere different.  

Just because McDonalds say you should eat a burger with your hands, doesn't mean you have to!  A knife and fork is perfectly adequate for tackling the Belfast Bap - am sure you've had a steak baguette before, it's along those lines.

OK Rois MIB is a bit different, however the OP was looking for somewhere to take his wife for her b'day and my personal opinion is that Bourbon or the the Sqaure would be more suitable for such an occasion.  MIB would be more suited to a casual night out with friends.

Top Student Eating Houses (in no particular order)

Temps - (which generally ended up with an insult being fired at old hot chocolate followed by a request to leave)

Centra Botanic - (roll and a bottle of lucozade was the real ticket)

Harry Ramsdens Botanic - on a soberish evening

The chaplaincy - couldnt beat wee Mary for a chap special (had to be almost sober for this)

Esperanto's - only when clean airlocked

Helens - the greasiest fry served by two aul chatterboxes - but it was deadly for the cure (and close to the hatfield)

Cafe Ro-An - something similar (the forerunner to Helen's)

The Hatfield/Renshaws baskets - just the ticket for a thirsty student in the throes of a rip of drink

The "hot Hat bites" provided some much-needed substenance on many's a day's rip.  f**kers don't do them any more, at least they didnt on new years day there.  Renshaws baskets were clean minging!

Cowboy Supper in the Hat, cheap and cheerful, did the job... Two big sausages, chips and a loda beans, what more could you want?

Only one place to go to pre Odyssey - Tedfords - next to Donegall Quay Car Park and a five minute walk to the Odyssey. Exceptional Food.

Only went once.  My experience was that it was a bit stuffy and way overpriced for a fish restaurant.

Go to Mourne Seafood bar if you want excellent seafood at decent prices and plenty of atmosphere.  Next door to Kellys.

Title: Re: Restaurants in Belfast?
Post by: supersarsfields on April 23, 2009, 12:18:16 PM
Hi Declan,

There's a few places that are decent but depends what you want.

Quick bite - Ryan's up on Lisburn Road do some really nice feeds and generally very reasonable.

Good restaurant - Some might argue but I have to say I used to enjoy the Kings head upstairs for a feed. Also For something different you could try the Morning star ( Haven't been in a while so I'm assuming it's still going) It does some lovely meals mixed with a few exotic. From what I remember wasn't overly expensive.

Again some people think it's over rated but I love Deanes in belfast and while it is expensive does a great feed with good service.

Chinese - Red Panda or the Water margin are my two favorites.

Also for something less formal Esperanzo's or Villa iltalia are decent eateries aswell.

Not overly upmarket or anything but I can't get enough of Spur (Victoria Sq and Newry).  Their steaks and burgers are unbelievable, very good staff as well, have never encountered ignorant staff, always polite and friendly.  Nice place for a cheaper bite to eat.

Title: Re: Restaurants in Belfast?
Post by: Donagh on April 23, 2009, 12:52:20 PM
Declan for a decent restaurant in Saturday evenings you will have to book beforehand. As nifan says Deanes@Queen's is very good choice with a less formal atmosphere than the main restaurant in the city centre. Another consideration on that line is Deanes Deli which has a more Asian fusion type menu but still the quality of all the Deanes outlets.

There's loads to choose from in Belfast so you are better first deciding on the area. In the city centre there are loads. James Street South is always consistently good. The Great Room Restaurant (Merchant Hotel) is a luxurious treat. Mourne Seafood Bar can't be beaten for fresh seafood but it can be noisy and crowded. No 27 (Talbot Street) is a personal favourite of mine but can be a little pricey. La Boca  on Fountain Street (beside Royal Ave) is an Argentinian place (not a steakhouse) that has a great atmosphere - high ceilings, wood interiors etc with very tasty food but the menu can be a little limited. The new trendy one a the minute is behind the Northern Bank. Can remember the name but remember Rois mentioning being in it.

Off the beaten track, if you want a romantic location and you are driving or prepared to pay for a taxi, you could try Belfast Castle. Food is usually top class and very good value though the menu is limited.

Post by: Rois on April 23, 2009, 01:16:58 PM
I agree with everything Donagh says - I'd follow his advice rather than Supersarsfields (sorry!) if you're treating yourself.  Have never been to La Boca - walk past it a lot, must get a wee evening in it some time.

You're bound to be having a cheap wkend with the euro etc so head to Deane's or the Merchant.  My sister ate in the Fitzwilliam a couple of wks ago and said it was lovely but very empty due to its newness.  It might be different at the weekend though. 

On another note, I ate in Cafe Vaudeville last Fri night - wasn't overly impressed but the setting was lovely as it was early.  If you're going for an afternoon drink, I'd hit there, lots of light and palm trees.

Suppose it depends what you are into. It is a speciality restaurant/bistro which is why I pointed out that although it's Argentinian, it's not a steakhouse as one might expect when they hear that. Not the type of place you'd order the Irish standards but if like me you've a bit of a gra for the Latin American cuisine, or want to be adventurous it can be very good. The interior of the restaurant is also very appealing, IMO.

I like all sorts of food, as does my Mrs... maybe it was an off night for them.  It was a Friday evening, the place wasn't packed or anywhere close to it though.  The food was a long time coming, when it did it was over-cooked to the point of being hard to eat.  Never again.

Spur in Victoria Centre is great though

Victoria Square has alot of places for good reasonably priced food. Have tried Nando's, Spur, Frankie and Benny's, Chilli's. There are loads more and the chinese all you can eat recently opened and is supposed to be good and cheap enough.

Other nice places would be Tony Roma's and Bourbon. A bit expensive but worth it.

Seriously? is it upstairs where all the rest of the food places are? was up the other day but didnt notice it.  Was in one in Newcastle the other week, in 'The Gate'.  Fecking huge it was,  would of easily seated 500 folk if not more (although beer goggles were on).  Top quality grub (again beer kicked in) & all for £6.99

Was in the China Buffet King in Victoria Square today. Unbelievable. £6.80 between 12pm and 5pm and £10.99 from 5pm to 11pm. Unbelievable selection of stuff. From what I can remember about 15 starters, 20 main courses as well as a big salad bar (never went near it) and up to 10 choices for dessert. Not bad for £6.80. Worth a visit when you have plenty of time to eat and do it properly.

My sis and her husband loved the restaurant but it was very quiet - it was midweek though.  They thought it was pretty reasonable for a nice meal.

Hope you got a good rate Declan, just got our corporate rate through today so if you're paying more than £130 a night bed and breakfast, let me know.

Strange name for an Indian. Most Indians taste the same to be honest and the menus replicated wherever you go so I don't think I've ever had a really bad experience - Chinese is a different matter! If anyone knows of an Indian that serves chapati instead of naan then let me know!

Forgot to mention James St South Bar & Grill (not the fancy part) - take a look online - www.belfastbargrill.co.uk

It has a good steak menu.  Def within 10 mins walk.  And throughout all the protest stuff, it was the only place I walked past that was consistently busy.  Has a very fancy part to it in an adjoining building but downstairs is always packed.  Actually you might not get a booking!

if you are for walking into town from Radisson best/ safest way would probably be cutting across Ormeau Avenue and then down Bedford Street, will take you out at the side of the Belfast City Hall   there will probably be another flag protest in front of it about 1 oclock tomorrow , they usually last for an hour or so ,
Stayed in the Radisson a few times , lovely hotel with the bonus of free parking at the weekends

Then I saw a sign for 'Howard Street'.

It had a Seafood Bar and it was exceptionally nice for lunch.

The menu is tight but thereís nothing there you wouldnít want. Salt baked beetroot, Lough Neagh eel, oyster and squid ink, Portavogie scallop, wild garlic, haddock and cured yolk, grilled mackerel, Bayonne ham, spring leek and chervil root, all among the starters give you an idea of the gear change this bistro has made.

I've been to the Porterhouse twice, once with friends a while after it opened and Christmas dinner with work.  Quite possibly the worst restaurant in Belfast and I've yet to hear a good report from anyone I've met who has been there.  All the steaks were like leather and the desserts for those that had them were also sent back.  Atrocious.  Don't say you weren't warned.

will be in Belfast this weekend for 2 nights to keep the missus happy - is there any recommended pub that I can watch the AI semi final on Sunday afternoon.....

With United playing at 4pm, you might be surprised at how few bars have the AI SF on anything other than a muted 14" screen tucked into the corner. There's a lot more ManU fans than Kerry fans in Belfast.

The Bot would definitely have it one of their rooms. The Hatfield will have it on somewhere. But both those are out of town a bit.

Didn't see it mentioned, but Coppi is probably my favourite restaurant in Belfast at the minute, followed by Shu. Made in Belfast is good for something a bit cheaper.

Stix and Stones is ok just, once you get past the novelty factor with the stone.

I had a lovely feed in the Porterhouse recently, got the big Porterhouse steak and it was class, cooked to perfection and I was so full I could barely eat my side dish.

Hadskis and James Street Bar & Grill are still two of my favourites. Never had a bad feed in either. Both owned by Niall McKenna too, he knows what he is doing.

Won't be back in Cosmos after their scores on the doors rating.

Can't say I'm dying about Boojum - has the novelty still not worn off?

When it first opened I thought it was ok, but having to queue up on the street alongside a shower of students and hipster gimps keen on getting their next Boojum t-shirt just isn't worth it anymore.

Always rated Ginger! Excellent place, with top notch staff, extremely friendly & always have a yarn with you when you're in. Food's great, but maybe sometimes the menu can be a bit predictable, if you go too often, but otherwise I would highly recommend it, have been going to it for years.

Chalco's is far superior to Boojum. Run by an actual Mexican too.

Coppi in St. Anne's Square is very tasty, as its sister restaurant Il Pirata in Ballyhackamore.

Birdcage on Stranmillis is good too (although hipstery - drinks served in jars etc) although service can be shit.

A mate of mine went to Ox for a wedding present for his brother ... £650 lol!!

Plenty or places for decent grub for good grubbers .. All depends were you want to hang around, Coppi, and Mumbai 27, 2Taps around the Cathedral quarter..
Fish City is a wee gem in Anne street Zizzi in Victoria square, the Cubby Cherub I was at recently was good. Coco at the back of City hall is very good, also Flame and Howard street will give you a decent filling..

The Morning Star do a great stake and a proper pint in a good pup.. Shu is a bit out of town but been very good for food for years.  Sweet Afton will give you plenty on your plate..

The Mourne seafood is in a great spot next door to Kelly Cellars and around the corner from there is the Havana bank square.. oh might head out this weekend!

Fish City is a wee gem in Anne street Zizzi in Victoria square, the Cubby Cherub I was at recently was good. Coco at the back of City hall is very good, also Flame and Howard street will give you a decent filling..

The Morning Star do a great stake and a proper pint in a good pup.. Shu is a bit out of town but been very good for food for years.  Sweet Afton will give you plenty on your plate..

The Mourne seafood is in a great spot next door to Kelly Cellars and around the corner from there is the Havana bank square.. oh might head out this weekend!
Is it not a bit tough?

If you thought some of these places were pricey before, wait to the tax goes back to pre-covid level as the break is now over today.

Belfast has gone to the dogs for prices. Same hotel in June for 1 night last year was £50 for 1 person. Its now £150 for 1 night. Its a  basic budget hotel.

Although they must still be getting customers even at those prices.

It's got out of hand. With that tourist tax it'll soon change. The DUP are doing all they can to kill tourism so Belfast will be quiet enough soon enough and cheaper if they have their way.

So...Belfast. What are the restaurants worth a visit?

Budget?

Nothing high end with tiny portions. I want to leave with a full stomach!  :D

Avoid ox or Deaneís then.

Mourne seafood is hard to beat. Or shu on the lisburn rd.

Stock at Georges Market is a great spot. Mourne Seafood and Copi have also been mentioned. Stix and Stones isnít bad

Love Stix and Stones but the only drawback was smelling of steak for the rest of the night!!

My favourites:

Morning Star - Nothing Fancy just good steak and good stout
Made in Belfast - Had a good feed in there last year
3 Levels Asian Fusion - Teppanyaki restaurants are always good for something a bit different
Shed Bistro - Good food and a good atmosphere
Villa Italia - Been going here for years it's not expensive and decent Italian food

Hotel owners are doing their bit to kill it by price gouging. Some of the prices are absolutely mental and eventually people will wise up and stop paying them. If out of towners stop coming due to hotel prices, a lot of the hotels, bars and restaurants might wonder why there aren't as many people around - 6 quid for a pint and 200 quid for a bog standard hotel in a city that is absolutely stinking can't be sustainable.

What u can't get my head around is that people are either willing to pay it or can afford to pay it. Used to stay in Belfast with the wife in an hotel every few months, won't be doing that again given the current prices.

Plenty of tans willing to come over and spunk their money in Belfast! In all likelihood will remain the same after tomorrow however canít see too many locals hanging about. Who wants to pay £6 for a pint? Good eating houses in Moira & Hillsborough.

It got a lot of trade from down south due to lockdown restrictions being a lot less severe and basically having the ability to go to the pub so Belfast thrived during covid with that but you'd expect that to taper off a bit.

Shed Bistro on Ormeau Rd is very good.
Mourne Seafood as a few ones already said.
3 Levels, as Screenexile said for Asian food and something different.
Coppi (italian) & The Dumpling Library (Asian) both in St Anne's square, I enjoyed both.
Stix & Stones for a good steak.
2 taps & Bupa for tapas.
House of Zen (Chinese) & Nu Delhi (Indian)
Harlem is also a good spot for lunch.

Donít get me wrong the food is great, but they have you for 6 courses which is plenty of food over that period but youíre generally paying a lot more that your other eateries. As for the instagrams I still donít get it or Twitter, Iíve just enough time for here.
