£££ – Modern Classic
Was recommended this restaurant by in-flight magazine (EASY JET) – about 9 years ago.
First time I went there was in company of 22 men!!!! The restaurant had only been open for a couple of months. Nobody I talked to had been there. So when we where going to have our Christmas 2006 dinner with our suppliers I chose this place. We had a brilliant evening and with the restaurant not being that big – we nearly had it all to ourselves.
Has returned to the restaurant a couple of times after that and they have every time recognize me as the hostesses of that noisy group – but I think the real reason is the amount the bill came too, after drinking champagne and Cloudy Bay Te Koko Sauvigon Blanc – today it comes £52.00.
Living in Belfast – I where spoiled with choices of good restaurants – amazingly !! Belfast isn’t that big – 280.000 people – and they all love their food.
It’s quite minimalist place and most guest are over 35 – when I’m not there.
Also a hidden gem – on a back street behind City Hall. 3 course dinner – no wine – £40 per person.
It’s a smart and chic restaurant – service is top class. Would say arguably the best restaurant in Belfast – an award winning place. Using local Northern Irish produce – like Antrim lamb – terrific cooking and fantastic presentation. Don’t pass on a side order of champ — mashed potatoes with spring onions and lots of butter. Wine list excellent.
A restaurant that has it’s place in this upcoming modern city by name Belfast.
