The Insta-worthy AMPM is one of the best restaurants in Belfast to take romantic date and dine among glowing chandeliers in a floral, Baroque-style space. Enjoy a globally-inspired menu involving massaman curry, seafood and elegant cocktails, then head out to the treehouse covered in fairy lights. 


The award-winning OX has rustic interiors and a cosy edge making it an alternative restaurant to enjoy a proper Belfast dining experience. There's a six-course menu accompanied by wine pairings or a cheaper two-course lunch offering mouthwatering bites like scallops and pigeon with fig, alongside many authentic tipples.

Yügo City

For Asian cuisine with an Irish twist, head to Yügo City, a suitably off-the-wall restaurant in Belfast perfect for lunch or dinner. The decor embraces modern, statement lighting juxtaposed by authentic golden lucky cats, plus an extensive range of delicious dumplings and curries are on the menu.
