We won City Picnic's pumpkin carving competition at Halloween and won a free meal. We finally found some time on Saturday to go into town and have some lunch. It was nice to arrive somewhere that has a relaxed atmosphere and keeping things simple. All staff were very friendly and the service was great. My partner ordered the beef burger... More

Be prepared to spend £10+ when you are eating at a table of 2!!! Me and my friend were "let off" when we spent £7.50. I understand that places need to make money but when I apologised, the member of staff didn't seem to want to accept it. Wouldn't bother coming back.

Coeliacs can struggle to eat out safely. Some meals are a real problem, especially lunch as we are often away from home and choices are very limited, especially for a light lunch. Some places offer gluten free sandwiches or rolls but they are expensive and not very satisfactory for the hungry. Here is where Cafe Picnic have a great offering.... More

Have tried this a couple of times only to been disappointed, if your calling yourself the best burger anywhere hey quess what, you better be a pretty good burger. Mediocre burger, frozen chips nothing to get excited about.

Claims to be the best Burger bar in Belfast! Not even close! So disappointed! The worst £47 spent. Drinks were serve way before the meal was so couldn't even wash away the taste! One toilet in the whole place! Would only tell people of this place in the negative way! Guys you let Belfast down !

Was offered a refund, but place was nearly empty and they somehow forgot my order after I enquired 40 mins after ordering. Food was ok, not bad but pretty bland.

We've eaten here before last year and decided to return as it was so great before. This time it was like a different restaurant. The staff were a bit surly and not friendly at all, no charm with the service. The food itself was not good - the burger was promised a little pink but neither mine nor my fiance's... More

Terrible experience. Tried to overcharge me. Chicken burger bland. Had better in a local chippy. Other reviews were positive but I won't be back. Overpriced for a very basic 'meal'

One of the best gluten free burger bars ever. They understand Coeliac as some of the staff suffer. Very friendly staff and the burgers are awesome. Well done, I say !!!!!!!
