Fodor's Expert Review Neill's Hill Cafe & Brasserie
Named after a long-forgotten railway station in East Belfast, this casual brasserie has established itself as a calming spot in buzzy Ballyhackamore, where lunchtimes can get crowded. Dishes change monthly but typical main courses for dinner are burgers, steaks, pork fillet, and sea bass from Walter Ewing, Belfast's top fish supplier. Brunches include a malted waffle with fruit or bacon and maple syrup, scrambled eggs with Irish smoked salmon, or granola with fresh fruit and natural yogurt. Small plates such as quail Scotch eggs with haggis, monkfish involtini (with dates and bacon), and hot wings with a cool dip are an excellent value. The drinks menu includes Belfast Blonde ale, fruit smoothies, and, Fentiman’s Curiosity Cola and Shandy.
