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.
Scalini is located in the University area of Belfast. This Italian pizzeria bears a distinctly Italian look in its decor, with intimate tables draped in the characteristic red and white chequered tablecloth, along with a delightful upstairs area that has tiny terraces facing the downstairs area. The restaurant is almost always packed, with the aroma of wood-oven baked pizza wafting in the air, making the wait for your order a rather impatient affair. However, the wait is truly worth it as you will be rewarded with authentic Italian fare that ranges from a variety of pizzas and pastas, to pollo, carne e pesce, contorni and dolce.
Step across the cobbled yard, through arched, stable-like doors and into this quaint eatery and microbrewery. You'll discover an atmospheric restaurant split over two floors with a laid-back bistro and an elegant yet rustic dining room above stairs. Quality, local ingredients, such as beef, sea bream and venison form the basis of a decidedly Irish-inspired menu. Also on offer are some quality local ales, including the intriguing Molly's Chocolate Stout and the refreshing Belfast Blonde. Built in the former stables of College Green House, this place is a real find for the discerning diner looking for something more authentic and down to earth.
