GO Restaurants In Belfast

Restaurants in Belfast Until just a few years ago, dining out in Belfast meant either sitting down to an Ulster Fry, or having a sirloin steak, well done, served with a mountain of chips. Quantity was everything. Little wonder that Northern Ireland came second only to Scotland in the world league for heart disease.

However, the Northern Ireland culinary landscape has now changed. If you come to Belfast you'll find every kind of restaurant you could wish for, many of which have won prestigious awards. This guide is divided into restaurant categories and offers a flavour of what’s on offer within the city.

If you can afford it, make your first port of call the expensive, yet stylish, Cayenne [map] located at Shaftesbury Square, and owned by TV chef Paul Rankin.

Rankin has singlehandedly revolutionised Irish cooking and brings this exclusive Michelin-starred restaurant to Northern Ireland for hungry locals. Enjoy the delights of this contemporary restaurant and choose from a menu of top vegetarian fare, meat, local wild game and seafood dishes spanning east and west flavours.

For a slice of cake like no other there’s plenty of bakeries in the area that all seem to use their own special ingredients to make delicious cakes and pastries.

Try Roscoff Café and Bakery [map], Fountain Street, and choose a street-side table to watch the world go by. Choose from a lunchtime menu that includes exclusive cookies, pastries and cakes, and a breakfast menu that is famous in the local area for providing some of the best Eggs Benedict around.

If you want to try something a little out of the ordinary there’s plenty of places to go for a curry, Chinese meal or takeaway, as well as a Moroccan restaurant and a famed vegetarian eatery.

Belfast is also quite famous for its “gastro-pubs” and if you want to combine some delicious food with a cool glass of wine or real Ulster ale check out places like McHugh’s [map], which offers a winning combination of Sunday roasts and exotic noodle dishes, Nick’s Warehouse [map] where you’ll find one of the best wine lists in the city, and the impressive Victorian surroundings of the Crown Liquor Saloon [map], which serves authentic Irish delicacies including famous Belfast Oysters and good old Irish stew.

Wherever you choose to eat in Belfast you’re guaranteed a warm welcome and good company.
