Love the vibe in this place, one of my favourite eateries in Belfast - the food never lets you down. Salt and chilli squid is delicious, as is the fish and chips. Highly recommended.

Had a previous not so good dinner here a few years ago but god am I happy I came back. Really fantastic, varied menu. Could order everything. Food was fantastic, service brilliant. Cocktails and gin selection was also brilliant. Really looking forward to returning.

The place never fails to impress top class food with a really good early bird deal, only thing I would like to see is a change in the menu every so often.
