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.
Absolutely delicious! Great atmosphere, fab wine, awesome food. Would highly recommend and will be back!
Friendly staff, lovely food. Couldn’t fault it.
Worst £106 I've ever spent. Starters and main were disgusting dessert was nice. Chicken wings with a bottle of sweet chillie sauce poured over them not hard to do. Steak was over cooked but the dogs enjoyed it when we got home and chips were like over cooked frozen chips, not what I want put in front of me when I go out for a meal. The red wine must've been the cheapest bottle of plonk you could find. Will never be back and will tell friends and family to avoid.
Love this restaurant ...best food and service ....can't stay away always our first choice for eating out in Belfast
Great food, lovely staff would recommend to everyone 😁
Absolutely amazing food we really enjoyed the whole experience and will certainly be back next time we're in Belfast.
Love the quirky decor and the food and service were absolutely fantastic.
While the meal was superb and the staff were friendly, we felt under pressure the whole way thru our meal to leave. Having booked the table for 9pm we turned up a few minutes late - around 9.10pm, and where told we had 7 minutes to order! The staff then tried to remove my wife's plate of food before she had finished eating. I understand it was Easter Saturday but to basically be kicked out by 11pm is not good enough. I love your restaurant having dined in it many times but this was poor....
We had the show time menu and were all thoroughly impressed! It was exceptional value for money & service with a smile. Thanks so much we had a great night and will definitely return ☺️
Everyone in our party commented on how amazing the food was, and continues to do so the following day. We were really impressed and will definitely return
One of our party requested no onions with steak & asked for veg instead but was told this could not be done? We had to purchase a separate portion Later as he loves his veg!!!
Even though there was 27 in our group all the food was served on time and food was delicious. Service was fantastic.
First class food and service!
The chicken was extremely dry. The only contact we had from servers was to inform us we can add a tip into the card machine.
Staff were friendly, chatty but not always about asking if everything was ok. Food excellent.
Great Night once again MIB brilliant place , lovely atmosphere ,great and food good value , so yes , we will be back , table of Eight but no problems for MIB Many thanks
We had a really lovely time here on Saturday, my only complaint would be that I ordered the fish, which was beautiful, however I got three bones in it and this just put me completely off and I ended up only eating a quarter of it. Thanks
We recently attended for Mother’s Day. We were a large group of 11. The service was appalling, at no point during our meal were we asked if we would like a drink. We had to ask the staff to take a drinks order. We then had to wait for at least 45mins between starters were taken away and mains were brought out. The food itself was just ok, could have been warmer! And to top it all off my brother was the only person who ordered cheesecake for dessert and has ended up vomiting.
Very friendly & helpful staff & a nice varied menu
Have to say this was the nicest food I have eaten out in a long time! Absolutely stunning!
Was disappointed in food, not as good as Wellington place restaurant. Was in WP a few weeks ago for first time and the food was excellent and warm, atmosphere is better and staff very attentive and friendly, sorry Talbot Street I wasn’t impressed food not as good, lukewarm dessert, no atmosphere and staff average. Definitely would go back to WP restaurant.
First visit too Belfast Excellent service & food Would highly reccomend Will be back soon
