What a nice surprise! After a long day of driving as well as a private tour of Belfast, we were delighted to get a seat in this restaurant near our hotel. (Europa). The service was just great. The wait staff seemed aware of weary travelers. The food was delicious! Soup, bread, fish and chips.......a yummy pie followed!

Have eaten here before but the meal we had today was very poor. We ordered burgers with chips.... meals arrived with chips and a bap and burger placed on top of the chips.. no garnish or cold slaw.... never seen a burger before without lettuce... chips over cooked and in all a very unpleasant experience... disappointing..

Me and the Mrs went here for a drink, but as we walked around the bar we noticed a sign for bistro so we thought why not. We entered the lift to the first floor, walked out of the lift to a impressive bistro all cladded out in wood, we were both greeted by lovely staff who showed us to... More

Fab food which was reasonably priced. Staff were extremely lovely. They never bothered you, just asked if your meal was ok, which we like. This establishment is on a few levels. There is a loft with approx 6 pool tables, seating area and a bar which serves chips etc.

Just across the road from the Europa on Great Victoria Street and next to the oldest pub in town.Took a couple of visitors from Manchester to lunch to give them a flavour of Belfast hospitality and to enjoy a great lunch.Service is efficient and fast and the visitors were not disappointed.

Visited here on business and ate twice in first floor restaurant. On both visits staff were very helpful, forod was good and delivered hot. Price was not expensive for what we got. Atmosphere fine, drinks downstairs good but a strange smell near the entrance. Having said that, a good experience on both visits. Will return.

My wife and I visited this very busy bar on a Friday night in March. I was cold and wet outside but inside was warm and friendly. Very busy and a bar with old fashioned atmosphere. There was live music and a great mix of people. Yes will be back.

Live music was very good and I noticed the pub attracted men and women from lots of generations. People were singing along and enjoying themselves, good atmosphere. Good fun!
