Was in botanic area of belfast today looking for somewhere for lunch, only to be enticed into 'The Other Place' by a large sign outside "Toss Up Tuesdays, flip a coin for a chance to get 50% off your main, starter or dessert". Nowhere on this sign did it say what time it commenced at, or ended at. After an... More

Hi Gerard, thanks for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor and I personally disappointed that you had such a negative review to feedback to us.This offer is available when you order any main course at " any time " during our advertised opening hours on a Tuesday hence why you didnt see any time advertised. Could drop me... More

As my title says , don't expect a tiny piece of steak it's quite reasonable size although it wasn't either prepared or cooked that well , my plate did have oil residue although that could have come from fried mushroom and onion under the steak ... It's a cheap steak ( rump) and filled a hole and it is what... More

Loved this place so much we were in it a few times! Excellent food and service. Food all cooked fresh and most nights they have special offers on. Sunday lunch menu was delicious and excellent value and breakfast and lunch menu excellent. Would highly recommend!

Went here on a Saturday night and had the 3 course for £12.95 deal which was great value and BYOB is great. But the atmosphere was ruined and cheapened by the radio being on? I found this extremely weird because it's a Saturday night restaurant and some radio show is being played in the background. Play music, not the radio!... More

Have not been here in years and enjoyed a hearty breakfast. Ordered an omelette and it was massive, a bit too big really, but was well prepared and very fresh. Service was slow but chap was very nice and said that would be the case when we went in; fair enough. Kitchen was churning out the meals. Good all around.

We came here with our son and his girlfriend who go to Queens and had been here before. Toss up Tuesday- toss a coin to 'heads' and your meal is half price. We got 4 out of 5! So a really cheap meal. However, it was amazing value to start with and we were really impressed with the quality of... More

My family and I had the 10oz steak meal which not only was great value but delicious. A big bonus is byo and no corkage charge. Staff are amazing.

Visited for lunch on the 15th of January, quirky design which I liked. Greeted within seconds at the door by a lovely lady who seated us. It was quite busy but not full- despite this our order was taken very promptly by a friendly waiter. We shared breaded mushrooms to start- other restaurants breaded mushrooms tend to be watery, have... More

Nice home-cooked meal, amazing price. Nice server and good atmosphere. I ordered the chicken fajita and my boyfriend ordered the rump steak. Altogether it came to around £14. You couldn't eat out and get a deal like that unless it was fast food! It is also BYOB! ** In the picture I was awaiting the chicken filling. The chicken arrived... More
