Always visit this lovely restaurant when visiting Northern Ireland. Lovely surroundings, friendly staff and really great food. The centre it os situated in is lovely and the views form the balcony area are great. Fresh flavours, food cooked to order and very accommodating. Excellent desserts and drinks menu.

It really is my favourite place. Food is always great during lunch or dinner. Never been disappointed and have to say me and my partner are eating there very often. Staff is just amazing. Very friendly yet professional. Highly recommending this place.

We had the BBQ on the terrace at start of April. Restaurant were very accommodating, and couldn't do enough for us. Adam looked after the booking from start to finish. This was the second time we booked the BBQ evening, will definitely be booking again later in the year.

Went for a family lunch. Whilst the food was very tasty portions were very small. Adult main course had the same portion size of fries as the children's meal and the battered haddock was the same. Most disappointing was the gluten free options. No gluten free bread alternatives to go with the burger and generally very little gf options. Won't... More

Hi Louise, Thank you for your review. I am very disappointed to hear that recent family lunch was not a memorable one. We pride ourselves on our food and service.

A pleasant location with a very nice lunch. Delicious scampi and a Tai curry. Sitting out on the terrace is a great place to enjoy the sights of Belfast on a sunny day. Very pleasant staff too. Recommended.

My wife and I on our first visit to Belfast were looking for a suitable venue for a light lunch. We found ourselves in Victoria Square and were looking around the House of Fraser. We noticed the Ivory Champagne Cafe Bar so decided to pay it a visit. What a gem. We had the special offer of an open sandwich... More

Booked a table here for Sunday at 5,30. Only 4 tables occupied. Asked for cocktails which took 20 mins and were made by the waitress (poor) however they did take them off the bill. We all decided to go for the salted chilli chicken starter only to be told there was none left. My husband asked for a burger for... More

The food here has huge potential but just needs to step up. My peas were weirdly flavoured. The fish I had was battered and was dried out. The chips were overcooked. My daughter's meal was good but again a bit dry. I hope the food improves but I wasn't impressed on this visit. The staff were excellent and very attentive.... More

Great experience. Booking and feedback pre-dinner was urgent and precise. We came in a bit late to the restaurant on a saturday evening but had a warm welcome without any problems. Food was great and the same with service and staff during the evening. Thanks on behalf of our party of 14 for making this a great evening for us... More
