Great service and fantastic food make this a must see in Belfast. So many delicious gluten free, vegetarian, and dairy free options here...and good food for you normal people out there too.

First off kudos to my waitress who was attentive and sweet! I started with the Elderflower Collins I think it was called -- really delightful refreshing cocktail. Then I ordered from the tapas menu a crab starter -- it was delicious. There was a mix...More

I would probably say no. Somewhere like Springsteins Diner on the Lisburn Road might be better.
