So i ordered the porter house and asked for it... More

Came here with my boyfriend for a meal and wasn't disappointed, great food, friendly staff & great service! A little pricey but would probably still return.

Back again to the Porterhouse but think this is this first time to review. As a steak house there is loads to choose from. The porterhouse steak is amazing but massive so be prepared. All steaks come with chips and pepper sauce. Even if you don't want them. Not always wanting chips and happy to pay for sides so would... More

If you are going for a steak in Belfast, there is no other place to go! The service is friendly and personal and the food is amazing... my husband and I have visited several times and it is better every time! The ribeye steak on the bone is delicious and make sure you add prawns... they are to die for!

Consistently top notch food and service. I still want to do the man v food challenge bit just haven't had the nerve yet. Steak is premium quality and sweet potato fries are the best around. House red wine would match the finest and the bread is homemade and deliciously floury. We are regulars for a reason 😀
