We visited on a cold Sunday evening. We were a party of six , 4 adults and 2 teenagers. The service which was poor to start ( there was no-one to show us to our table and we were left standing at the bar for too long) but once we were seated the service improved. 4 of the mains were... More

The most pretentious and snobby bar in Belfast. Rude staff. Wouldn't go back again. Too expensive and full of people who have very high opinions of themselves.

For a big birthday me and a few friends booked a cocktail masterclass. We had 2 hours, our own bar and dedicated barman who let us pick any drinks and explained and showed us how to perfect them. We started with prosecco, made two cocktails each and ended with a main course from their menu. It was such a really... More

What a great night!! Food & wine was amazing great value for money. Cocktails definitely worth a taste. Waitress Anna and manager couldn't do enough for us, made our evening most enjoyable. Brian was the entertainment and he was such a friendly people person, had customers up singing along with him and generally having a fun filled night. Great to... More

I've just realised that my husband and me have been going to The Chelsea for about 20 years and l have never written a review, so here goes. To be honest, I'm not sure about the latest revamp of The Chelsea. The decor and layout are not entirely comfortable and it feels a little cold, especially upstairs. Nevertheless, it remains...

Well what an evening. Just sitting/standing at the bar in the Chelsea from 10pm. Disco booming down from private party upstairs. "Its dull" stated Burns. I shrugged. New Years Eve in a wet Belfast. Mercury on 6. "Gimme another pint and a cheap gin lady" I shouted to the smiling bartend. It wasnt a night for taxis. Lets see what... More

I have had a bit of a hiatus from TripAdvisor for various reasons but decided to get back on it to give The Chelsea a review. We visited last night with another couple and it was nothing short of fabulous. The service was very attentive throughout even for a busy evening. It was great to see the manager, I think... More

Called here for an early tea. Noticed on the website they had a deal on however this wasn't pointed out when we were given menu. When asked the waitress pointed out the meals that were included and it was a disappointing selection. However I did choose the one piece of fish that came with chunky chips and sides of mushy...
