Our Inspector's view

This modern, light-filled restaurant with its large picture windows is just across the road from Queens University and the area is busy, vibrant and buzzing with activity. Here you’ll find excellent, reliable modern Irish cooking, where a main of slow-cooked crispy duck leg, accompanied by chargrilled greens and crunchy peanut contrasting with flavours of soy and sesame is a melt-in-the-mouth delight that might be preceded by a great dish of salt and chilli squid, and followed by wild honey panna cotta with toffee sauce and pecan crumble.

About the area

Discover Belfast

The capital of Northern Ireland since 1920, Belfast is a solid Victorian city with many surprises in store. Although historically it has been at the centre of the Troubles and the well-documented conflict between Republicans and Unionists, today it’s a pleasant, peaceful and friendly European city.

It was built largely on the sea trading, shipbuilding and textile trades, with large public buildings that sit grandly amid fading red-brick terraces and commercial premises. Parts of Belfast are a bit shabby, but it’s modernising quickly along the River Lagan and around the heart of the city. Even in the less touristy areas there is plenty of life and atmosphere. Belfast people are generous with their time and help; they may speak with black humour and they enjoy conversation. The city is very easy to negotiate and there are a number of green and pleasant ways to get around: on foot or by bicycle, on one of the frequent city buses or cruising along the River Lagan on a boat.
