Visited with large family group 2-65+years. Excellent choice of food, very accommodating for the children - no chicken goujons etc just smaller portion of good adult food. Great service with friendly staff. Worth that little bit more.

Viva and her team treated us royally and were on hand with Chez... More

Surprised to find a table free at an hours notice we ate in the fish restaurant. The food was excellent, the beautifully fresh oysters being a highlight. The service was excellent and the atmosphere spot on. Well done!

Michael Deane is an establishment in Belfast, it sets the standard for others to try and achieve. The food is consistently good, very high quality and a wine list to match, but expect a bill to match, hence the four starts and not five. This is a great restaurant if you want to impress; it is formal but still relaxed,... More
