Find this good restaurant in converted stables, set over two floors - the lower being a less formal bistro in style. It's been described as Belfast's best kept secret, but you'd be unwise to turn up without booking - especially at the end of the week.
In line with current trends, local and seasonal food is the name of the game - and all is well cooked including their in-house bread.
The downstairs offers a bistro menu all day, the upstairs dining room confines itself to the specific hours of lunch and dinner - however, there is some crossover of dishes.
Starters, such as 'Soup of the Day with Chocolate Stout Wheaten Bread'; 'Chicken Liver Mousse with Melba Toast, Cranberry & Apple Preserve'; 'Confit of Irish Duck Leg with Ginger & Beetroot Relish' and 'Orzo Pasta with Smoked Salmon, Peas,, Lemon & Parsley Cream' set the style on an early autumn menu.
With 'Pan-fried Chickpea & Sweet Potato Cake with Parsnip Crisps and Smoked Paprika Aioli'; 'Slow-Roast, Spiced Pork Belly with Merguez Sausage, Lentil & Celeriac Casserole'; 'Fillet of Glenarm Salmon with Braised Leeks, Baby Potatoes and Soy & Ginger Dressing' and 'Dry-Aged Ribeye of Angus Beef with Lyonnais Potatoes, Chili-Studded Field Mushrooms & Smoked Garlic Butter' listed among the mains.
Desserts, such as 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Orange Caramel & Cognac Custard'; 'Blackberry & Pear Crumble with Just Jersey Ice Cream' and 'Belgian Chocolate Brownie with Chocolate Stout Ice Cream & Chocolate Sauce' might be there to tempt the sweet-toothed at the end - while their selection of Irish Cheeses are also commended.
