Had three course meal for party of four with cocktails and drinks . Good was excellent and service was good. I had the beef for a main which was cooked really well and just fell apart. Cocktails where nice although a little expensive.

Have eaten here quite a few times and not been disappointed yet. The daub of beef is generous portion and very tasty.

£9.95 for a full breakfast, you cant go too wrong. Fully self service, so you look after yourself, which i prefer, especially if you need to get in and out quickly.

Great food, and lovely staff...good value for money, although at £6.50 for a glass of wine I thought this was a bit steep.

Used the facilities of SQ for drinks and a meal whilst staying at the Ramada Encore and were not disappointed. Good atmosphere with equally good service. Prices were reasonable and portion sizes enormous ( I defy someone to finish their chicken fajita after a starter!!)

If you want a good meal at a reasonable price look no further. There are plenty of other places in the vicinity but this was the only restaurant that could accommodate our party of 9 at short notice on a Saturday night. I would recommend this to anyone,

Description
SQ Bar & Grill is a modern European restaurant at St Anne's Square in Belfast's new cultural centre, Cathedral Quarter. Its central location - walking distance from the city centre – means it makes an ideal stop off after a day in the city or a trip to Victoria Square shopping centre. Like the rest of the hotel, SQ Bar & Grill is decorated in a modern, minimalist style, but still conveys a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and diners can choose between a table with a view out over Saint Anne's Square, or a booth for a more intimate dining experience. The menu ranges from full dishes like slow roast pork belly with bubble and squeak, or char grilled tuna Niçoise, as well as light snacks like salt and chilli squid or moreish club sandwiches. Traditional dishes, locally sourced ingredients and modern presentation are the strong suits here, and there's also an extensive wine list and a wide range of spirits, beer and cocktails.
