Disappointing quality, small sizes (two of the mains should really have just been starters) and poor value for money.

Very disappointed with the food. We did complain that the fillet steak was terrible but they just went ok sorry about that.. I expected much better.

Recommended to try by a smoker nearby. Service was exemplary. Couldn't try harder to help. Food was ok and reasonably priced. A lovely atmosphere.

Chose Entrada for a bite last Saturday after catching the excellent Flashdance matinee in the Millennium Forum. It rounded off the perfect day for us - everything about this place is top notch, and we got the strong impression that everyone working there really cares about the service they provide.

First, the table service: swift, professional, friendly and INTERESTED - so refreshing! The ambience: lively, bright, a constant hum of animated conversation (it was at least three quarters full the whole time we were there) but never too loud to be overpowering; my wife and I were able to chat merrily without having to strain to hear each other. This was helped by the fact that the background music, possibly the best selection of classic hits from the 60s & 70s that I have ever heard, was played at a volume that entertained without disrupting conversation. The decor and furnishings: tasteful, clean, contemporary.

And now, the food: all of it simply exquisite and prepared beautifully in generous portions; highlights included mouthwatering pork and fennel meatballs, a selection of mixed fried fish and incredibly tasty desserts. As others have commented, it was pleasant to watch the chefs preparing all this with great style and energy in the open kitchen at the centre of the room.

I wasn't drinking that evening but my wife's Pinot Grigio was delicious, and to top it all, when I requested strong coffee to finish, the gentleman at the bar duly obliged and sent over two coffees as darkly flavoursome as anything you'd sip in the Piazza San Marco.

The people behind Entrada clearly know what they are about, and they are offering a first class service and excellent value. I read a couple of grumbles about price,but I really don't understand. In other cities and other restaurants you could pay double the price for food and service of this quality. Our 3 course meal for two, plus glass of wine and two coffees came to just under £60 - well worth every penny! Entrada is a great addition to Northern Ireland's gastronomic scene...long may it prosper!
