Restaurant
$$
“There are 2 Made in Belfast restaurants, one close to the city hall (which is a good place to go for lunch) and another in Cathedral Quarter (Talbot Street), which is a good choice for dinner as you are close to lots of good bars, so you can go for a drink or two afterwards. Décor in the restaurant is quirky and the focus of the food is local produce from local farms. Good cocktail menu.”
