A group of six booked a table upstairs in Muriel's , food was quite good , they had a deal on 2 starters and 2 mains a bottle of fizz for £50 per couple. This is a busy spot at weekends so best to book for food .

This place have an amazing deco and it is so well known by their gin cocktails. We always go there after a wee shopping in the city centre. I absolutely love this place and so will you when you go there. It is always busy so hard to find a place to seat

Washing lines of underwear is an unusual way to decorate a bar. You can see the territory you are in here ;-) And I guess for the traditionalists a bit abhorrent - however this is the changing face of Belfast and the cosmopolitan metropolitan feel has to be a good thing. This bar is quite close to some of the... More

My partner and I decided to head into Belfast for an u planned lunch. We wanted a place small but trendy and with bags of character. The place was pretty busy but we got served quickly and our main course arrived not too long. I can recommend the bangers and mash it was very homely and such a large bowl.... More

The last stop on any night out in Belfast. Quirky décor, quaint building, lovely outside seating with blankets etc. the best cocktails and gins you are going to get in the city. The bar staff are phenomenal - they deserve medals! The know how to mix and have great drinks knowledge. I haven't eaten in the restaurant yet.

Trying to find the sun on a typical day in Belfast, Muriel's was an oasis. a nice couple of sauvignons blanc outside, though a bit pricy. I didn't try the food but the footfall on a Sunday afternoon was heavy, suggesting something worth trying in the cosy bar /restaurant inside.

Called in here with my partner to grab some food and a drink. We were told there would be a 10min wait for food but then nobody ever came to tell us a table was ready so can't comment on the food. I ordered a French martini. It was hectic to be honest. I think it was made with flavoured... More

Love this place. Serves delicious cocktails. Great service. Quirky decoration. Can get very busy at the weekends but that is due to its greatness.
