Fillets steaks arrived as ordered with tasty accompaniments, first class. Service is good from professional & friendly staff. Enter the bar up the exterior steps or the door under the steps & either thru the restaurant or up the spiral staircase. Highly recommended.

Went to The Pot Belly on Friday night with my husband and two friends. I had forgotten how much I loved it – how I had forgotten I don’t know! I love the experience of sitting upstairs with a drink and chilling while looking through the menu. It’s worth arriving about half an hour or so before your table booking... More

We went on Valentine's weekend. Got a table last minute which was great. Food was good as was service. Generally it was a bit on the expensive side for what we had. That said we would probably go back.

We went to the Pot Belly because it stated it had good vegetarian options. My husband was seated in front of a HOT stove and a corridor. Why we had such a terrible table is beyond me as there were lots of empty tables. To start I had brie with onion chutney. It was runny obviously microwaved and not oven... More

We went to the restaurant on New Year's Eve as a family. The restaurant was extremely busy and despite this we received excellent service. We had a small soup as an appetiser delicious squid and prawn starter and best fillet steak Ihave had in years cooked as I requested medium rear.The desert wa probably a little disappointing.

I've visited the Pot Belly numerous times and have always had a fantastic experience. By far the best service and food in the local area and possibly the whole of Northern Ireland.
