I met a friend for coffee in the lobby of the Hilton. Lovely spacious lobby area. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The coffee was amazing and service excellent. The Cables Bar has changed since I was here last and it's fantastic. Must try the food!!

Visited with Cable Bar when staying in the Hilton Belfast with my family. The food was very nice, staff were really good, very accommodating and very kind with the kids. Also the kids ate free when meals ordered by adults. Really hope we will be returning soon

Food was decent, but don't expect anyone to wait on you while there. I sat for about 15-20 min, then went to the bar to ask for a menu, since none of the waiters came to my table. Then sat for another 10 min, before going back up to ask if I could order some food and drink....

Please don't think you are going to drop in here for a bite before an event - way too busy and the staff are under experienced. Food was of a good enough standard, which is the only reason the Cables Bar got an Average rather than a Poor!

Had a nice lunch here recently. Portions of food were generous and food was nice. Service was a bit hit and miss but very friendly and overall very good.

Lovely space at night to unwind and relax. Bar staff were amazingly friendly and very attentive. They were happy to serve you at the bar or provide table service. Drinks, for a city centre hotel, were reasonably priced.

Service to start of was slow but after our wine came the beautifully presented butchers block for our afternoon tea arrived. It was not only beautiful to look at but it was delicious too. Would definitely recommend and would go back.

Went here last Friday for something to eat and regretted it right away. I ordered a black mountain burger and when it came it was served in a camping tray and literally swimming in grease. Even the staff member was embarrassed. To their credit I received a 20% discount but I should not have to complain the food should be... More

Cables is ok bar even if you are on your own. Attentive service, can't fault that. Friday night a singer in the bar was ok but I just wanted some place to chill. Tried the Narnia burger which was nice... But to be honest you can get better elsewhere. Cold bun, oh please get real the competition down the road... More
