An absolute gem of a bar. Tiny, quirky and perfect. Fabulous gins- a perfect gin palace. Limited seating but always seems to have a great vibe. If you are a gin lover choose one of the gin flights, 3 gins a mixer very cutely presented. I love this bar (you may have guessed!) go and enjoy one of Belfast's best.

Stopped by on a quiet, rainy Sunday for some lunch. Cute and quirky interior - not sure what the bras hanging up are about, but hey, it's different! Lots of interest to look at. My boyfriend ordered the chicken, bacon and leek pie, and I the fish finger sandwich. The pie was really tasty and flavoursome. My fish finger sandwich... More

Had a lovely meal and a few gins in Muriel's cafe bar! Had olives, hummus, tapenade with warm bread to start then grilled chicken linguini with pesto and Parmesan for mains. Really enjoyable. Very attentive staff also without being overbearing. Over all, lovely time and we will visit again.

My boyfriend and I wanted to have dinner here on Friday, but they were fully booked (book in advance guys!). So we went back later on after dinner for some drinks. Really relaxed and chill atmosphere, with under garments hung up all over the place! Quite quirky and fun. Would recommend stopping in here for a drink!

Found this bar on our belfastology walking tour. Has quirky decor and has a brilliant gin bar . The bar lady was very helpful in providing a cocktail to our own tastes . Slightly on the expensive side of things though !

I love this bar. They do alot of cocktails which look great but arent really my thing. The place always has a good atmosphere whether its busy or quiet. They play a great selection of music and staff are always friendly and happy

Getting my third one, after myself and... More

We came to Muriels to try their cocktails which we had heard so much about. The menu was amazing, there were so many to try so we decided to be adventurous. They weren't overly cheap but not overly expensive. Loved the ambience in the place, that was my favourite thing. It was quite busy because we went in the lead... More

I visited Muriel's for the first time with a couple of friends and I was not disappointed. We started off with a cocktail and the bar staff were fantastic so much enthusiasm when making the drinks and great banter! As we sat at the bar we noticed a lot of people ordering a gin drink with honeycomb... This was a... More
