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.

Food, service, fab drinks - loved everything about our visit to your yummy restaurant, was told upon booking table was needed back quickly but we weren’t forced out at all, no rush for table back- much appreciated by us! Lovely chilled atmosphere and great drinks for dessert
I rang an hour before my booking because I was going to be late and they were extremely accommodating! Food was top class.
Excellent as always
Great buzz in the place. Food was great and the cocktails were yummy. I would definitely come back here the next time I’m in Belfast
Friendly welcoming staff restaurant is clean and very comfortable great selection of food all the food I had was delicious and piping hot when served excellent portion sizes I can’t fault it on anything will definitely be back
Food and service were both outstanding, as always! They showed an amazing effort to follow the current Covid guidelines and still managed to create an excellent restaurant atmosphere. Definitely one of the nicest places to eat in Belfast!
Usually love Made in Belfast and would still recommend to a friend. However on my the last visit (with 3 friends) we got Maggies Leap and it wasnt nice, we mentioned to our server and he didnt do anything for us about it so we drank them anyway and got a different drink next time. The mains where all good and we decided to get dessert. I went for the chocolate mousse however it was frozen and hard not as I expected.
Great and friendly service!
Had lovely date night with my husband. Gorgeous food and cocktails with 25% off which was amazing. Great staff and service.

We came on Saturday night, we were early but that was no problem, the staff were lovely and only too happy to help! Food was absolutely amazing, the cocktails were to die for and we will definitely be back! I would 100% recommend to anyone.
Incredible food as always, the staff couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful! I’d happily drive from Dublin for dinner here!!
Could not fault anything. Staff were amazing, really friendly and helpful. Food was 5 stars easy. One of my favourite dinning experiences. Highly recommended.
Good food, good service, very friendly staff - catered fairly well for the vegan in our party too 😊
Food was really lovely 😊 I had the prawn and crab for starter and plaice for main which was lovely. My husband had the pork which he loved. Cheesecake was Devine . Wine could have been more chilled. Service was slow . I asked a waitress for dessert menu and she never came back and the restaurant was busy but not that busy. Overall would come back. Food great
Brilliant evening - the food, service and atmosphere was all great.
Our favourite restaurant, food and service is always amazing.
