The staff of the graduate are a credit to the place. We had the best party here for my daughter's holy communion, The manager Richie honestly bent over backwards to make sure everything was perfect, The good was beautiful with a lot of guests commenting. I'd highly recommend here to anyone. Thank u graduate for an amazing day.

We went out for a family meal on Boxing Day. When the food arrived we were all very happy! I had lasagne and chips and it was one of the best lasagne I've ever had!! The deal was £6 per meal! Unbelievable value. Our meals were held up due to problem with the fryer - but the manager came and... More

However I had lunch today and it was amazing. My boyfriend only eats burgers and said it was the best burger he has had. I had... More

Although we are customers for the last few years and we are very happy with the food quality, since this restaurant has great value for food, we have to say that we are not happy with the service. The website of this restaurant says that they served food Mon-Sun 12-9pm. Yesterday, Sunday, we went there... More

The Lower Ormeau road area of Belfast was bereft of anyplace decent to eat only a few years ago when this restaurant and bar opened adjacent to the iconic pub, The Hatfield. It was a welcome and classy addition with a very nice bar, overall setup and decent food.. Sadly two recent visits have shown how far down it has... More

My wife and I had a lovely time here having an early Christmas dinner. The service was great. The food was pretty damn good. There was a musician playing lovely live music. It wasn't all that expensive either. Pretty much thumbs up all around I'd say.
