I have visited Bennett's before and had no complaints, but when I had lunch with my mother there today we both were disappointed. Once we ordered, we had to wait ages for our meals. Mum ordered fish and chips, the batter was too hard and seemed to be more batter than fish. I had ordered chicken pie with cheddar mash.... More

Hi Claire, So sorry for your poor experience. As I was working in the restaurant at this time, I remember the confusion one of my staff had in taking your order as we had 2 chicken specials on this day as was not from our normal menu and I would like to apologize that the proper precaution was not taken....

Hi Lucinda, I am so sorry for your disappointing experience within our restaurant. I have spoken to my staff who were working on this evening to find out more information and they are correct in saying we do not stock gravy as such in our bistro. We did however have a red wine jus available from one of our other... More

Just arrived and even though it was busy we were seated quickly and service was excellent. Gluten free options were excellent and server was able to explain all options. Meals were fantastic and deserts were perfect. Fairly priced and staff are friendly and efficient. Will return next time we are in the city.

Lovely Bennett's fry, best I have had so I keep going back again and again! Great value for money, everything you could want and more: two fried eggs, two sausages, two rashers of bacon, two pancakes etc and it is beautiful, not greasy at all.

Was here with a group of girl friends last week and would describe this place as a hidden little gem in East Belfast. There was a slight mix up with our booking and as a result we had a little wait for our table, however we could not have been better looked after. Our server, whom I presume to be... More

This is an amazing little place. The food is very reasonably priced and totally delicious. The staff are very pleasant and attentive but not intrusive. We travel an hour and a quarter to visit this restaurant and it's well worth the journey. We just love it. The ambience is relaxed and welcoming. It is advisable to book as it can... More

There is loads of competition on the Belmont road and Ballyhack isn't far away, but Bennett's is definitely worth a visit. Never been dissppointed by a meal here. The nachos are great as is the pork belly!
