There's nothing wrong with this place per se but it is largely caters to North American tourists. The place is beautiful to be sure but it's just not the cozy experience you hope to have. Service was adequate.

Wonderful ornate pub in central Belfast Just opposite the Europa hotel Definitely worth a visit. Has great character inside and out. Nice wooden booths with wooden doors for a comfortable drink. Decent local beer and tea/ coffee also available

We had lunch there and the food was okay. I would think that Saturday night is going to be very busy and the staff will be focused on drinking customers. I'd plan a drink there and dinner somewhere else. If you want to go... More
