Visited the restaurant tonight, god what a let down. The best way to descible the food is Basic, like honestly the most basic ive ever had. Our starter of garlic bread with cheese was something my 2 year old niece would present me, then the mains of fajitas were the most unappealing things ive ever been presented with, bland bland blooming bland. Dessert was a microwaved piece of dry chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream.
The entire meal the 'manager/owner/david brent impersonator ' was sat a couple of tables in front of me giving a potientional new chef a chat. About the runnings of this establishment, how much hes turned the place around in a short few months and the hope of opening a few more restaurants, he literally talked the entire time i was there approx 40 mins. If he hopes to improve the restuarant i suggest putting a match to it and starting again - not to sound harsh but it was the single worst place ive ate in belfast in over a decade.

Went here about 2 months ago. Had the 2 course special which was fabulous. Great choice of fresh food and cooked to perfection. There was a good atmosphere on that Sat night and there were a couple of free tables for those who hadn't booked. It closes quite early (9.30 ish) so we had our meal booked for 7.15. It's a BYO restaurant with no charge for corkage which is a bonus when eating out. We were chatting to the friendly manager at the end of the night and advised him that we will definitely return.
