We had a tasting menu at Ox when visiting Belfast. The food was lovely (definitely Michelin Star quality although perhaps not the best one I’ve ever been to). The atmosphere in the restaurant and the decor were great. We had a lovely evening. It perhaps didn’t have the wow factor that some Michelin Star tasting menus have in terms of food or service but we really enjoyed it and would recommend it for a nice meal in Belfast for a special occasion.

After walking around Belfast we walked past the door at Ox and decided to ask for table. Had no clue about this restaurant at all. But it was absaloutly brilliant experience. Service and flavours where perfect. And price is very good for such a nice experience. Then after dinner you must visit Ox Cave next door for a night cap.

We have been to a few Michelin Star restaurants, not that many so hardly an expert but suffice to say we were very disappointed and embarrassed as we had invited guests to join us. We got a lovely welcome at the door which was nice but on entering the restaurant I was expecting a little more from the decor, there was no wow factor or anything to set it apart. The speed of service was very good, the waiting staff very pleasant but lacked a real sense of warmth. The server who described our tasting menu was European and difficult to understand as her voice was too low to hear. Consequently we had to tell each other what the courses were. The Somellier could not be heard above the noise in the restaurant and was disinclined to engage after she had imparted the minimal information which she might as well have been lip syncing. She too was European and difficult to understand. The food itself was very tasty however I’m sad to say that the portions were minuscule. We all left very disappointed, hungry and feeling like we had wasted our money at €400 total bill. I was going to purchase a voucher as a gift for a friend while I was there but I came away without it for obvious reasons. We were handed menus as we left the restaurant, perhaps if they had given them to us at the table it would have helped us understand the waiting staff.

Went here for my anniversary and must say everything from the decor, taster menu, wine pairing, local gins and service were what you would expect from a Michelin Star restaurant. Well recommended.
