As usual the food and service were first class. Even though the restaurant was busy the staff were very attentive. Would recommend 👌 👍
Incredible food and amazing service. The tapas were delicious and the ice cold glasses for beers is always a nice touch. Look forward to our next visit!
Fantastic service from our waitress, lovely food and perfect ambience - will definitely be back!
Food was immense, im never disappointed with the barking dog.
Service was great, bar staff brilliant and chefs top marks
Perfection. We used to visit dog track back when it was open and this just brought us flash backs of how you can get some much flavour into small tapas dishes. Unbelievable food. Can’t fault it.
Love the Barking dog it never fails food fabulous staff lovely nothing too much trouble had Cocktails then Christmas lunch best place to spend a Saturday afternoon
Had main course and dessert for 2 people upstairs. Was a nice atmosphere with not too much noise. Food was very good and would recommend
Food was outstanding, service was warm and friendly. The best meal is Belfast always
Small overpriced tapas...couldn’t find the Portavogie prawns or any prawns and complained we were told we must have eaten them!
Luke warm dishes...
Then to crown it all tried to charge a 20% tip!
Won’t be back
Lovely family Christmas lunch at the barking dog. Nice menu and all food very good. Pepper scampi maybe a bit too heavy on the pepper but the shin burger was superb
Staff very friendly and helpful
Social distancing in operation and felt very safe
Would recommend and will return
Delicious food as always!
Tapas was amazing,wish we ordered more! Drinks were lovely. Quite busy but the bar definitely took a while for drinks to come but staff was lovely!
Excellent food, excellent staff and a lovely environment in which to eat.
Lovely waitress Lovely waitress Lovely waitress!!!
Food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. Quick and attentive service. Staff very friendly. First time here and cannot wait to return!
Exceptional service, really delicious food
Great food and staff lovely. Felt very safe in these COVID days
Felt safe dining out for the first time during covid. Food was gorgeous, and the burger lived up to my expectations! The staff were all very attentive and we had a lovely lunch.
Amazing from starters to dessert! We had 3x tapas to share and they were delicious and excellent value!
I then had the Christmas lunch. The turkey, ham, stuffing and all the trimmings were delicious. It was the nicest Christmas lunch I've ever had in any restaurant. My husband had the shin of beef pie and he said it was delicious.
Dessert was chocolate and peanut butter cake and was devine! I can't wait to return!
The restaurant had only reopened after yet another lockdown so it was good to be out. The staff are really friendly and attentive. I always like the Salt and pepper scampi starter but the portion could be a little larger? My wife’s goat cheese and beetroot tartine lacked a bit of balance. The monkfish was good but presentation wasn’t great and the kale wasn’t very tasty. Wine was fine.
Nice place for a dinner - great service, food average and not great value £100 for 2 with starter and main plus carafe of Albariño - would certainly come back despite above
Outstanding from start to finish. Food was out of this world and cocktails weren't too bad either!
Lovely food, nice atmosphere, felt a bit rushed by waiting staff although restaurant not buzy that night, too attentive!
Had a great time there!! The food was great, everything was great!
Always guaranteed excellent food at the Barking Dog
Service and everything was amazing as usual. The only thing I would fault is when we initially sat down we were beside the window and it was a little bit cold. But once the food came I didn’t notice it. Can’t wait to come back!
Food is delicious and well presented, love going to the restaurant for a wonderful treat , well done to all 👏🏻👏🏻
Absolutely loved the barking dog! The food was exceptional & the social distancing was excellent! Will definitely be back, cant recommend it enough!
Food and service was excellent - as always! Thanks for a great meal :)
Amazing food and cocktails and brilliant staff! !
Great meal at one of our favourite places. So glad to see it open again. The food was excellent as always and we were made to feel very safe with the Covid 19 precautions. One of the best restaurants in Belfast.
Fabulous food great waiter service never fails to deliver
Great meal, great service, will definitely be back.
Absolutely superb restaurant- all food and drink was delicious, waiting staff exceptional- highly recommended!
We love this place - we eat here every time we're visiting Belfast! Great tapas selection to start, and the prawn linguine is amazing. There are tough times ahead so I really hope the Barking Dog pulls through...
Fantastic meal, as always! Hopefully see you in 4 weeks.
Food, service, & entire experience was 10/10 as always. My favourite place to dine.
Had a fantastic meal with my family for a birthday celebration. Staff were brilliant. definitely be back again
We really enjoyed the food which was a very high quality. The servers that we experienced both girls were excellent and very attentive. It is not a 5 star review as the background music was a bit on the loud side which wasn’t conducive to chatting. My other slight issue was that our table was next to a hatch at the till, the front door was at the other side of the opening both myself and my husband were cold and put our jackets on. Would still recommend this restaurant
Service was good, but nearly too quick which was the problem. As the steak wasn’t cooked properly, (very chewy) which I don’t expect with the price I was paying and the sticky toffee pudding was shocking, tasted poorly and the texture was the worst as if it was stale. Overall very poor experience and definitely not worth the money
Great job!! Food excellent, service excellent, COVID precautions and hygiene excellent. Well done!!
