Find this popular neighbourhood restaurant , on two floors, in the leafy parts of South Belfast, but within easy walking distance of the city's business area.
The dining rooms, on two floors, have bare wooden floors, period furnishings and crisp white napery, backing the restaurant smart enough for a special occasion.
Chef/proprietor Jim McCarthy uses seasonal ingredients which are sourced locally whenever possible but starters such as 'Foie Gras on Toasted Malt Loaf with Five Spiced Apricots'; 'Warm Sea Bass Escabeche with Baby Red Chard, Orange & Saffron Vinaigrette' and 'Spring Chicken Salad with Soft-Boiled Egg, Confit Tomatoes, Fine Beans & Black Olive Tapenade' set the style.
Dishes such as 'Seared Sea Trout with Beetroot Confit, Fondant Potatoes & Horseradish Velouté'; 'Chargrilled Ribeye Steak with Marinated Red Peppers, Cocotte Potatoes, Salsa Verde & Pea Shoots'; 'Roasted Saddle of Pork with Porcini-Braised Potatoes, Sauté Spinach & Shallot Cream' and 'King Scallops & Conakilty Black Pudding, Gratin of Orecchiette & Smoked Bacon, Herb Butter Sauce' might follow.
If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Sticky Toffee Pudding'; 'Buttermilk Pannacotta' or their selection of Irish farmhouse cheeses.
They are well-known for their B.K chocolates, which you will be given at the end of your meal. Sunday lunch is thoroughly recommended.
