About Made In Belfast Cathedral Quarter
Back in 2005 much travelled Kent girl Emma Bricknell put her names of several cities into a hat. Whichever one she pulled out would be her next place of residence. It could have been Barcelona, Sydney, Manchester or Cornwall but the name on the paper was Belfast. And that, in a sense, was the origin of one of Belfast’s most popular and idiosyncratic restaurants, Made In Belfast, which opened in April 2008.
The Company ethos is that the money goes into the food so the design concept they wanted was suited to scouring skips and second hand shops with a little bit of Ikea here and there. It’s constantly changing too, they have sheds full of antiques like old saucepans and pottery jars. In fact the anarchic but very beguiling decor of Made In Belfast’s original Wellington Street outlet has become part of its attraction, giving it a real stand out identity.
The Company’s main priority has been and always will be the food, which had to be high quality, locally sourced where possible and ethically and environmentally sourced. We were inspired by restaurants like Hawksmoor, Medcalf and St John’s where the standards of animal husbandry are very high. We are looking primarily for producers who we can be sure really look after their animals.
The approach to food reflects the owners own preferences. “it’s back to basic, rustic peasant food but with influences from all over the world, Aussie burgers, Russian salads and Scandi Smushis - anything goes.
Following the success of the original Made In Belfast, we opened Hooligans in the Cathedral Quarter’s Talbot Street in summer 2010. Envisage as a pop-up restaurant it re-emerged as Made In Belfast Cathedral Quarter on April 1, 2011.
Great wee spot! Cocktails amazing and food was great with a very quick service. Very reasonably priced.
Everything was absolutely incredible. Best dining experience so far in Ireland.
Amazing food, very accommodating to our big group after a day at the open!
Very friendly staff and great food .
Fantastic food and atmosphere
Great ambience and pleasant staff. Thanks guys!
The pate and leek soup were excellent but I found the pepper sauce on the steak a little too hot perhaps a little too much tobassco and the fish was just okay
Food was very tasty, presentation could be a bit better. Friendly, casual service. Cocktails ok.
Excellant staff and wonderful food.
Food was amazing!! Would definitely recommend a visit
Great venue and food. Our large party were all served promptly, and the service itself was fantastic.
First dined at made in Belfast 9 years ago, and this weekend I brought my friend to the city for the first time. We loved our experience at MIB cathedral quarter so much we came back and ate here twice in 4 days. All the staff were fantastic, the food was incredible and the atmosphere and service was second to none. Thanks to all.
Fantastic from start to finish!! Service and food were first class.. amazing and cant wait to go back !
Cauliflower curry was a delight !
Fantastic meal vegan option superb and I'm not vevan Thank you tean made in belfast
Lovely food but was very annoying to have waiters/ waitresses bump in to my chair all through the meal as tables were too close. I had to resort to pulling my chair out and sit on the edge of it to block people walking through and bumping in to me. Was told to pull chair in as people couldn't get past. Lovely meal but was ruined by this.
Food was superb as ever, but we were very disappointed when r waiter set the bill on r table when we hadn't finished our meal, obviously u needed the table back which we understand but the waiter didn't mention this, hadn't cleared r plates from r main course and didn't ask us if we wanted desserts, we still had some drinks left and some wine, we found this very rude and very disappointing to be treated this way!!! He could have simply explained that he needed the table but he didn't!! We moved onto the sofa to finish r drinks, he did apologise at this stage but it was too late as he had handled really badly!!!
Fabulous meal. Visiting guests very impressed. Thank you.
Food was outstanding and the service was fantastic! We came for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. All the staff we excellent and so attentive, and the food was delicious!!
Great day for Graduation, welcomed at door and had a lovely foreign waitress (name I can’t remember now) that was very helpful with all guests including our 2 children
first time for us in Made in Belfast and will definitely be back. Staff so friendly and welcoming. Food delicious and excellent value for money.
Wonderful staff service and the food is always top notch.
We visited on a busy Friday night, eating quite late. We were a group of eight so pre-ordered our starters and main courses. Busy evening service but staff were quick to take a drinks order and the food came in a timely manner. Food was generally good but we did have to send one course back, hot on one side, cold on the other. The only really disappointing part were the cocktails. We asked for some Aperol spritz but rather than a dash of soda water the glasses were filled with it. A very weak, unpleasant drink. We complained and then were charged for some extra Aperol. The group left with a generally negative opinion.
Had a great night would definitely go back food was lovely and we had great service. Highly recommend
Good food and good staff. Great location and reasonable price.
