Deanes Restaurant Review
Belfast's dining elite love feasting in Deanes, a classy experience offering food served with artistry and style. Delights such as slow-braised veal shin with creamed polenta and gremolata and roast monkfish with pommes mousseline (fancy mashed potatoes), pancetta, and a bourguignon garnish are available in the main restaurant. Steak, lamb, chicken, and venison dishes are all menu staples. For fabulously fresh fish, head to the informal 20-seater all-white Seafood Bar, where the feel is strictly Cape Cod: coral curtains, shells, and nautical memorabilia are complemented by two large and boldly stylized Graham Knuttel paintings and his colorful wooden sculpture of a mackerel. The food is equally distinctive: highlights include salt-and-chili squid, fish cakes, or fish pie. The Linen Lunch is £10; if you want to spend less in the Seafood Bar, for £6.50 you can have a filling bowl of chowder or mushroom risotto with crab mayo. The Deanes empire also includes Deanes Deli Bistro and, in the leafy University Area, Deanes at Queens (also open on Sunday; see website for details).
