Top Places to Eat in Northern Ireland

The Belmont

The Belmont Bistro & Bar’s “Small Plates Menu” makes this the perfect spot for a light lunch with a glass of wine (or two!). The tapas-style menu is terrific value; pick any four small plates for £20, more than enough for two to share. We had the Fish Tacos, crammed full of haddock, prawns, salad, guacamole & drizzled with sriracha, the Mushroom Bruschetta with goat’s cheese, the Salt & Chilli Squid with crispy slaw, & an outstandingly creamy and luxurious Prawn Risotto. All washed down with a couple of glasses of vino, The Belmont provides an excellent, inexpensive lunchtime venue.

Amici Ristorante

Amici Ristorante reflects the passionate attitude of Italians towards food, & uses only the best local ingredients to produce a rustic, homely & authentic Italian menu. The pasta dishes are always cooked “Al Dente”, the pizzas are lovingly crafted from homemade dough, kneaded by hand & cooked at 800°F in a wood-burning pizza oven. Seafood fans can’t go wrong with “Branzino”: fillets of seabass cooked in the charcoal oven creating a subtle smokey flavour, & the Prawn and Tuna risotto special was a real highlight-a steaming bowl of creamy comfort food. And, for cocktail fans, Amici’s wonderful “Smoky Old Fashioned” is an absolute gem.
