We booked a table here on 14th January. We have been to this place many times , in its former guise as Beatrice Kennedys. What a disappointment!! This is not a patch on BK's in fact at best it is no more than average. The restaurant was not busy but we were shown to a table beside the swinging door... More

Went early for a pre cinema dinner and we were the only diners. I ordered a steak and requested it be pink in the middle, waitress said that would be medium rare. I asked for the peppercorn sauce on the side and to have the chunky chips listed as a side in place of the mash. My companion had the... More

The atmosphere was very nice. Good decoration. The food was decent and in line with the philosophy of the place. The service was a bit rough around the edges though (perhaps due to inexperience of the particular person serving our table which wasn't compensated with attention to the quality of service) and removed a bit from the occasion.

Got a last minute reservation on Saturday night and had a wonderful meal. I went for the fish of the day which was pan fried hake, curried chickpea balls and pepper salsa, and my friend had the Crab claw Linguine, and we were both delighted with our meal. We shared a bottle of wine and finished with two beautiful liquor... More

We visited here for a second time last week. We enjoyed the food but thought it was a little too pricey for what you got . the early evening menu was definitely the way to go. We did that a few months back and it definitely made a better impression.

Stopped here after a good night out in Belfast and I had the lovely Sunday Roast. I had the beef brisket which was the special, the others had the burger and the pastas all lovely. The atmosphere and the service (Jessica) was all top class. Thanks a million

Looking for some delicious vegetarian and vegan food? Try Buskers restaurant, university Avenue, Belfast (previously known as Beatrice Kennedy's). They have a vegetarian menu and are in the process of compiling a vegan one. The chef was lovely and asked what we would like so he could see if he could rustle it up. My friend Donna, who is vegan,... More
