This chic and modern restaurant on the Golden Mile is one of the most popular restaurants in Belfast. Well-known for its smoked haddock and leek risotto, and salt and chilli squid, the menu is contemporary and varied. The service is excellent, but the dining room is small so reservations are recommended.
