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.
Nice to see a choice for non meat eaters that's not just fish and chips! Good variety on the menu.

GREAT FOOD,SERVICE,MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT.
Food was generally good and the showtime menu is fairly priced. Good service but we had to ask for the showtime menu specifically. I like the approach of paying attention on where food is sourced from and the atmosphere in the restaurant.

Food (fish) was absolutely amazing, we all really enjoyed our starters & main courses, very impressed!
Amazing food, amazing service and live this place. The evening we went, the music was sooo loud that we couldn't hear each other speak which was a bit of an atmosphere killer. But the food was awesome so we still had a great night.
