Opened to great acclaim in the late 90s, Deane's has played a prominent role in the upgrading of cuisine in Belfast, proving that there was a market here all along for fine contemporary and fusion food. As renowned Michelin-starred chef Michael Deane puts it, come and sample some serious, indulgent dining. The clientèle range from high flying city types to Belfast's most distinguished visitors. Beware though, the menu changes regularly. There is a fine range of wines, with a bottle of house wine.
Opened its doors in 2004, this brainchild of chef proprietor, Simon McCance, has been delighting locals and visitors to Belfast with delicious fares for over a decade. It is the cuisine, crafted by McCance, that has been drawing people to this restaurant. He blends contemporary twists into traditional Northern Irish flavors, creating new flavors that delight the palate. While savoring local flavors, you might get an essence of the orient as well. Noted as one of the best restaurants by the Michelin Guide, Georgina Campbell's and The Bridgestone, visiting The Ginger Bistro is a must, when in the city.
The luxuriously stylish interior of The Cloth Ear in The Merchant Hotel provides the ideal excuse to while away the hours chatting and relaxing with friends. It manages to combine elements of the modern and traditional into a heady, decadent dose of the eccentric. There are many kitschy touches throughout to keep your eyes busy; from sheet music wall paper to the odd wooden deer head and loads of retro garb hanging from unusual places. An all day menu features some great homemade comfort food, such as Macaroni and cheese with field mushrooms or garlic prawns on toasted soda bread.
Cutter's Warf is a great place for a leisurely pint but really comes to life during the summer months. Its popularity is due to a massive beer garden and an idyllic setting, situated on the banks of the River Lagan. The bright, airy pub has some excellent panoramic views, quirky promotions and plenty of passing boats full of straining rowers to keep you entertained. There's also good barbecue, plenty of free-flowing drinks and lively music. Also, there is a restaurant upstairs which serves a wide variety of dishes.
