We arrived in Belfast early evening and jet lagged from 24 hours of travel from Australia. We wanted a light meal and the waiters were great at suggesting how to put a meal together from entrees and specials. Bespoke beer and cider as well as a cosy atmosphere. I was expecting a pub but this is a boutique quaint restaurant... More

Really good restaurant! Staff were great, food was great! Was it out of this world!? It was okay! It's just good food, done well. Wasn't our first choice on the night but everywhere else was booked out! Make sure you book a restaurant before you head to Belfast!!

We went here on a Saturday night and it was a great find. Sweet potato ravioli and smoked chicken was excellent. Really friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.

Me and my fiancee have been at Barking Dog last year when we visited Belfast and decided to go again this time. Amazing food and atmosphere. We had Pan Fried Mackrell and Celeriac Soup with Truffle Oil to start, Braised Beef Brisket and Smoked Chicken with Sweet Potato Ravioli for mains and White Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert. It was amazing!... More

Great food, great service, romantic atmosphere. I accidentally overpaid the waiter, he chased us down outside to return money. Regardless of this kind gesture, an all round great place to eat.

For our mains my partner had fish pie and I had 10oz rib eye steak and both were excellent with my steak cooked (medium) absolutely perfectly. The Guinness was first class and the... More

Decided to give this restaurant a go as it was only round the corner. Really enjoyed the ambiance as it was very remincent of a romantic dinner with dimmed lighting and candles on table perfect for a couple. The food was expensive, however you certainly get what you pay for as the quality was amazing. Only thing I would have... More
