Fodor's Review

This self-styled "restolounge" in the happening Cathedral Quarter is one of Belfast's buzziest bistros. Decorated in a giant mishmash of vintage lamps and fabrics, '50s collectibles, and drawings from local artists, this outlet follows the Cuisinart school of restaurant design, mix 'n' matching all sorts of antiques and objects, including a ceiling covered in glossy magazine photographs. It's truly one of Belfast's most eye-popping decors. The typewritten menu, set on clipboards, showcases seasonal and retro dishes, best downed with fab cocktails like the frozen French martini made with Beefeater gin, Chambord liqueur, and pineapple juice. Start with the pear and goat-cheese fritters or delectable tomato jam and Guinness wheaten bread.
