We attended for a family birthday.The restaurant was quiet an the service was good.The fare was acceptable although a bit expensive.What reply ruined the evening was a round of Irish coffees for the family group.I thought mine tasted odd but said nothing and took a second sip, awful.It was only when my wife said hers was bad that the table agreed.The cream was off.The waiter apologised and said we would not be charged! No offer of a complmentary drink or discount,i wasn't going to beg.Very disappointing.We live in the area and won't be back.

Catered for a group of 15 no problem at all. Food is top class while being reasonably priced. Service was excellent - luckily considering our group were well able to take a joke - and give it right back again.

Second year eating here and not disappointed. The private room upstairs is great for a small party but this year we were downstairs and it was actually better atmosphere.

Highly recommended for both food and service.

Excellent food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff. It is at the more expensive price range but its an ideal venue for that special night out.

We felt like a couple of dummies when we accidentally ducked into the restaurant when it was closed. Being from the Pacific Northwest where we're known for not being the friendliest, we were shocked to be greeted with with a laugh and "no problem, let's set you up with a reservation!" We felt silly, but were grateful for the grace and and fantastic customer service. We had a pint around the corner, and when we came back, they remembered who we were and happily seated us. We made conversation with the host, who found out I was a photographer and took me upstairs to see the old artists loft converted into additional seating. The hospitality was phenomenal, we loved the food and their unique beer selection. Being from the Pacific Northwest where IPA's rule the world, I hate to say it, but sometimes Irish beers are a little light and boring for us. We tried some amazing local I(Irish)PA's, which we loved and had an overall fantastic experience. We'd definitely be back if we make it out to Belfast again! Thank you to the amazing staff and our favorite Romanian host for this unforgettable experience!

Lovely neighborhood cafe with tapas, veggie dishes, and standard “mains.” Excellent list. We loved the New Year’s Eve special cocktail the French 75. Love this place, one of our favorites on our trip through Belfast.
