Belfast has a lot to offer the ravenous foodie. We've combed the streets for the best restaurants, from the enormous Eipic to the spectacular Mourne Seafood Bar. Take a peek at what we have to offer below. If you are visiting Belfast while staying in our serviced apartments, make sure to give these spots a visit.
Only eighteen months after opening, Michael Deane's Eipic received a Michelin star. The meticulous attention to detail does not detract from the food's rich, rustic flavours. Dishes like lamb breast with garlic, soy, and honey, and langoustine with asparagus, endive, and lardo may be among the wonders. £35 and £45 tasting meals are available.
Chef Stephen Toman's Michelin-starred talent was helped by the manager and partner Alain Kerloc'h's friendship and friendliness. Everything is seasonal, featuring fresh vegetables, seafood, and venison and beef cuts of the highest quality. Stephen's lightness of touch is the main draw. The main courses start at £7.
This modest-looking hideaway is located in Ballyhackamore, an eastern suburb noted for its rising number of independent and excellent local restaurants. Graze is a local produce powerhouse. All of the Irish Hereford meat, Fivemiletown goats cheese, and Glenarm smoked salmon are masterfully prepared. Don't miss the pan-roasted hake with tempura green beans and citrus butter if it's on the menu. The main courses start at £12.
This rustic, bare-brick shrine is very Belfast, being so youthful and occasionally loud. Marty Murphy is in charge of the cooking at Howard Street, and you'll regret it if you don't try the chargrilled pig belly with Clonakilty black pudding or the slow-cooked ox cheeks with a tomato madras sauce. A vegetarian menu is available, including dishes such as white bean and slow roast tomato cassoulet and cauliflower massaman curry. The main courses start at £12.50.
In a sophisticated, easygoing setting, the best of Irish food is turned into delicious meals. Small producers compete to get their products in the hands of David Gillmore, the head chef. The cod, halibut, and other fish, in particular, are always gleamingly fresh. The main courses start at £13.50.
Beautifully browned meats and fish come from a large charcoal barbecue. Niall McKenna (also of James St. South) is the chef-patron in charge of this fantastic restaurant in the Cathedral Quarter. If you're dining alone, sit at the bar and enjoy the banter with the cooks. Choose from Irish cod, Portavogie crab, or one of the great pasta dishes, and wash it down with cool, crisp local beer like Yardsman lager. The main courses start at £13.50.
The Dirty Onion is a historic whiskey warehouse in the centre of Belfast, and Yardbird is located right above it. The restaurant provides dry-rubbed chicken entire (£17), half (£9.50), and quarters (£5), but the avocado salad, which is crisp, rich, and seasoned with a chilli vinaigrette, is the restaurant's highlight for those in the know.
