The Barking Dog
Lovely atmosphere. We had the chicken gnocchi for starts which was lovely. My partner had the shin burger he said it was nice but wouldn't order it again. I had the special- confit duck leg with blue cheese & caramalised onion ravioli- it was lovely but half way through the blue cheese was very over powering. Service was great and highly attentive.
Loved it from start to finish, beautiful food, lovely staff and great atmosphere
Amazing food!!! Pricey but worth it would 100% recommend
Absolutely fantastic meal from start to finish. Checked on regularly but not intrusively, speed of service was perfect fast but not rushed, food itself was delicious in every way- my girlfriend was emotional over how good the sweet potato fritters were - & the area of the restaurant near the bar has the perfect atmosphere & ambiance for couples.
For the quantity & quality of the food the cost was spot on. Without a doubt the best restaurant Belfast has to offer. Nothing could be faulted as both the front of house & back of house are at the top of their game, please don't change that.
Limited menu, very limited wine list.
Very small veg serving & too salty.
Lovely neighbourhood place offering innovative food. We shared lunch tapas special which was fine but not a great indicator of food overall. Enjoyed the experience but would have liked a bit more input from staff re menu choices.
Really nice neighbourhood restaurant. Highly recommend the tapas selection as a starter. The pork belly was outstanding!!
Really good ambiance, lovely decor, tapas and main course were more than satisfactory, would have loved more refined intelligent music
Superb!!!! No more needs to be said. But as I need to use up 50 characters to proceed then I shall. Food... First class!! Service as good as it gets. Ambience and setting... A tad dark.. But what the feck not a big deal.
Booked easily on a quiet night.
Service was welcoming and helpful. Food was very tasty and well presented.
I especially thought gthe Tapas was value for money>
The BEST in BELFAST. FRESH FOOD -- SMART PLACE & SERVICE. 100%.
We thought the service was fine, there was a good buzz about the place on a Friday night, thought the menu was a bit limited, good local NI beer on offer, food was nice but I wouldn't rave about it, there were 4 of us (2 couples) and we scored it 6 out of 10.
Food is just mediocre. much of the tapas was inedible, too fatty or just bland. burger was meh but insanely expensive. food is definitely not worth the price tag. trying to be fancier than it is
Food was amazing. We had shin burger and chicken and bought loved the meals. Desert menu didn't seem great but we were both delighted with dessert after getting it. Would recommend to anyone
Lovely food, with outstanding service. Will definitely be back.
The barking dog never disappoints! The food is always wonderful and the service received was faultless! Can’t wait to return already.
First time dining in The Barking Dog and we will definitely be back. From we arrived the service was excellent and the food was outstanding. A really good atmosphere, everything just made it a really enjoyable night.
Excellent food and service. I would definitely return.
Fantastic food beautiful cocktails in a warm cosy environment
Fantastic food at a very reasonable price! Would definitely recommend!
Stopping in Belfast for one night, we found this restaurant was only a 3 minute walk from our accommodation. Great find! We shared delicious tapas and pasta dish while teens tucked into burgers. Could only fit in a shared dessert afterwards. Lovely staff and decor. Bustling spot.
We went here on a special occasion and it seemed to have good reviews. It was, a truly excellent dining experience from the beginning. Excelent food the tapas we choose for starters were delicious the mains of duck and ravoili very tasty, and the desserts of brulee and brownie just finished the meal off perfectly. One of best meals i have had in a few years. Would definitely recommend the Barking Dog. Venue is very pleasant and a lovely ambience. Would highly rate and was reasonably priced for the standard and quslity of food.
I had asked through this site for a table by the window....I also mentioned that it was a Birthday celebration.....I'm guessing that the staff don't read up on any additional information supplied by Open Table. The guy called me Saturday morning to ask if I was still going but knew absolutely nothing about my seating request or my indication that it was a Birthday.
Stupidly I assumed that all would be well for the Birthday.....at the very least a small token of a bun perhaps with a candle.....but nothing.
It seems the staff are only concerned about covers and don't act on further requests.
I had one of the best meals I've ever had , the food was superb, full of flavor and so well presented . The service was exquisite and the staff were very helpful , pleasant and nice which made my evening out so much nicer . Thank you to the barking dog for such a wonderful meal and surroundings .
Friendly service, good food!
Delicious food, lovely ambience, very pleasant staff who make this informal dining feel like a special occasion!!
Lovely place to celebrate a birthday. Interesting menu and we could have selected so many dishes. Ours were beautifully presented and delicious.
Great atmosphere and the staff were extremely helpful. The food was so good and returned the following night bringing a group of 12 colleagues . Thank you
Excellent food, excellent staff. Ill definitely be back.
The restaurant was cozy, servers were attentive and pleasant, and the food was excellent. We had the Barking Dog salad (an inventive blend of local flavors) and the shin burger (amazingly good). We would definitely return!
We've been in the UK for almost three weeks, and this is one of our favorite meals so far. The place was lovely and the servers were wonderful. Both of our meals were fantastic. We had the sweet potato gnocchi with smoked chicken and the Irish chicken and potatoes. They had many more tapas and starters that looked amazing. Make reservations and enjoy.
Slow to be serviced. Tapas was very good. Main courses were a bit skimpy and disappointing for the money
Best food in Belfast. The Gnocci is amazing! Really good range of meals - great veggie options too.
It's a bit pricey, especially the tapas as the portions are quite small (maybe we're just greedy though) and actually we couldn't eat a dessert so with tapas and a main you get enough food! The staff are lovely and very attentive, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Would definitely recommend.
We visit this restaurant about 2/3 times per year for about 5/6 years when visiting Belfast on business.
It is consistently excellent both in quality of food, service and ambience.
For those who don't know it, it is an ABSOLUTE MUST you will not be disappointed.
The choice of a tapas style starter is good fun and just a little bit different.
Amazing experience with such excellent food and helpful staff.
Will be visiting again on my next trip to Belfast :)
Home made pasta was delicious! The wine was divine!
The pudding was fabulous!
The staff were charming!
Can’t recommend this place enough!
Sunday evening visit. Amazing dinner, delightful ambiance and service exquisite! Been many times before but can’t wait to return!
Everything went well and the service and food were excellent. Background music was intrusive and made carrying out a conversation difficult
The meal was a last minute surprise dinner for myself and we were able to get a table no problem
The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful with an allergy my girlfriend has
Will definitely be back
Superb as always. Food is unreal and incredible value for money. Service was prompt and friendly. Will be back again very soon!
