Had a really lovely meal at Blu Restaurant today with family. Service was great but the 30 per cent service charge on the bill was excessive! This unfortunately brings the rating down to ‘average’ Disappointing 🙁

Another excellent find during our weekend away in Belfast! James was really attentive and helpful throughout our three course feast! The mussels, lamb main and both duck dishes were beautifully presented, delicious and very filling! Would definitely recommend to friends and family visiting Belfast.
