    This is my second time to visit this restaurant while in Belfast. The food was so much better but this may be down to my choice. We had two fish and chips, one risotto and one rotisserie chicken. All were extremely good. I highly recommend a visit.

    We had a lovely lunch yesterday at Novelli. Our table was near the window overlooking the panoramic view of water, 02 arena and iconic cranes in the background. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful and even though we sat on for a considerable amount of time chatting, they didnt rush us off our table. The food was lovely. I had the chicken main course with dauphinoise potatoes, absolutely delicious followed by the caramel tart with vanilla ice cream which was just perfect.

    Great new slightly tarnished by the over zealous approach to my wife who has an intolerance to dairy. Which ended with the manager strictly saying that they could not allow her to have bread with her meal.

    Came for the tapas which it said it had on the internet but told they weren’t on until April. Ordered hummus and pizza. The hummus was supposed to be served with warm flat breads but arrived as a watery brown blob with biscuits. Sent it back. Pizzas were just ok. Typical hotel layout with no atmosphere. Won’t be back.

    A lovely restaurant in a stunning location on the river. The staff were excellent and the food was very good. Fish and chips stood out. I didn't personally like the French Onion soup and it was taken off the bill which was very kind as this was not the fault of the restaurant. It was a pity to see it so quiet on a Friday night. It's definitely worth a visit if you are in Belfast.

    Excellent experience at Novelli. They were extremely accommodating as I continued to add to the party numbers. The hotel is gorgeous and the service second to none. I can’t say enough good things. Will definitely be back

    I booked the outside terrace which is available to book online but it doesn’t open until April! This should be taken off - The staff took us inside and we had a really lovely drink and coffee. The place is gorgeous. Relaxing and clean and friendly.

    Absolutely beautiful restaurant. Food amazing, service very good and the manager was really really nice. Can't remember if his name was Paul or Gary but thank you for the light 😊😊
