Deciding where to eat in Belfast can be difficult, with lots of tempting options to be found around every corner. If you are celebrating a special occasion or simply want to splurge, try dining in OX (1 Oxford Street), one of the most chic Belfast restaurants, which has won over critics and diners alike with its emphasis on seasonal, high-quality produce.
Another good reason to don your glad rags is for dinner at the sumptuous Great Room Restaurant in Belfast’s Merchant Hotel (16 Skipper Street). Its gilded Victorian dining room is adorned with intricate plasterwork, and from the ceiling hangs Ireland’s largest crystal chandelier – a dazzling sight indeed.
For a more casual restaurant experience in Belfast, settle in for the night at Coppi (St Anne’s Square) where delicious Italian small plates, such as feta fritters with truffle honey, together with pastas, risottos and mains, are frequently listed as being among the best food in Belfast.
For breakfast, you will want to try the famed Ulster Fry, which is essentially Northern Ireland’s version of the Full English. It contains all the usual fry-up suspects (bacon, eggs, sausages and tomatoes), as well as soda and potato bread.
Diners with big appetites rave about the mammoth Ulster fry portion at Belfast’s Maggie Mays (50 Botanic Avenue). George’s of the Market (1st Floor, St George's Market, Oxford Street) also has a loyal following thanks to its high-quality fry-up ingredients, all of which are sourced from market suppliers.
If there is one thing Belfast has been excelling at of late, it’s got to be coffee and cake. Two of the best places to grab a pick-me-up in Belfast are Established Coffee (54 Hill Street) and 5A Lockview Road (5A Lockview Road).
For a mean cake, meanwhile, stop off at the cute vintage-influenced Avoca Café (41 Arthur Street), which is part of a hugely popular family-owned Irish chain.
