Fodor's Review

For more than 20 years Michael Deane has been the leader of the Belfast culinary pack, and in 2014 he reinvented his flagship operation with three distinct restaurants in one building. The Meat Locker is a beef-driven grill room inspired by London's Hawksmoor steakhouse chain. Menus come on meat hooks, while a "salt wall" is used for dry-aging locally sourced beef. In the new extension is the upscale Eipic (Wednesday to Saturday evenings, lunch Friday), a classy round-table, 30-seater restaurant and champagne bar serving a variety of multicourse menus. Running beside these two eateries, in an elongated conservatory, is the seafood restaurant Love Fish. A less formal approach is taken here, capturing a bright Hamptons feel with Brentwood steel chairs and local artwork. Lunchtime staples include fish-and-chips, crispy fried monkfish or moules frites, with main courses starting from £6.50. The Deanes empire also includes Deanes Deli Vin Café in Bedford Street, Deanes at Queens in the university area, and Deane and Decano on the Lisburn Road (check website for details).
