Where is the best place to eat in Belfast?


Where is the best place to eat in Belfast?

Belfast has a lot to offer hungry foodies. We've scoured the streets for the greatest eateries from the massive Eipic to the stunning Mourne Seafood Bar. Check out what Belfast has to offer below, and if you're staying in our serviced apartments in Belfast, be sure to check out these attractions.


Michael Deane's Eipic got a Michelin star only eighteen months after it opened. The great attention to detail does not detract from the deep, rustic flavours of the cuisine. Among the other miracles are dishes like lamb breast with garlic, soy, and honey and langoustine with asparagus, endive, and lardo. There are taster dinners available between £35 and £45.


Chef Stephen Toman's Michelin-starred talent was aided by the familiarity and kindness of manager and partner Alain Kerloc'h. Everything is seasonal, including fresh vegetables, shellfish, and high-quality deer and beef cuts. The main dishes start at £7 and go up from there.


This tucked-away haven is in Ballyhackamore, an eastern area known for its growing number of small and superb local restaurants.

Graze is a powerhouse serving local vegetables. The Irish Hereford steak, Fivemiletown goats cheese, and Glenarm smoked salmon are all made to perfection. Don't pass on the pan-roasted hake with tempura green beans and citrus butter if it's on the menu. The main dishes start at £12 and go up from there.

Howard Street

This rustic, bare-brick shrine is very Belfast, because it is so young and occasionally boisterous. Marty Murphy oversees the kitchen at Howard Street, and you'll be unfortunate if you don't order the chargrilled pig belly with Clonakilty black pudding or the slow-cooked ox cheeks with a tomato madras sauce. A vegetarian menu includes dishes like white bean and slow roast tomato cassoulet and cauliflower massaman curry. The main meals are priced from £12.50.

James St. South

The finest of Irish cuisine is transformed into delectable meals in a classy, casual environment. Small producers strive to get their items into the hands of the chief chef, David Gillmore. In particular, cod, halibut, and other fish are always immaculately fresh. 


A huge charcoal grill produces beautifully browned meats and seafood. Niall McKenna (also of James St. South) is the chef-patron in charge of this wonderful Cathedral Quarter restaurant. Choose from Irish Cod, Portavogie crab, or one of the fantastic pasta dishes, then wash it down with a refreshing, crisp Yardsman lager. The main meals are priced from £13.50.


Yardbird is located just above the Dirty Onion, a historic whiskey warehouse in the heart of Belfast. The restaurant serves dry-rubbed chicken whole (£17), half (£9.50), and quarters (£5), but the avocado salad, which is crunchy, thick, and seasoned with a chilli vinaigrette, is also a standout dish.
