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 food with friendly and helpful staff. We had a birthday lunch here and found the staff and atmosphere very welcoming.
Amazing food and great service!
Lovely evening, great atmosphere, very attentive staff who did everything to accommodate our party, which included my son who has serious food allergies. Highly recommended. Thank you one and all.
Got the Brill - it was amazing , cocktails amazing , finished off with a fab dessert - aswell as a great atmosphere with funky decor in a vibrant area !
Our food was delicious, so flavoursome but arrived out cold. It was taken back and reheated and was just perfect. Definitely would recommend this restaurant for its fabulous flat iron steak! Great.
Have been to the restaurant a number of times and am never disappointed. I really like this place... I'm a really picky eater, but can always find a few things on the menu that suit me... All at decent prices, too! The staff are excellent - very efficient and always smiling :-) The atmosphere is lively - it's a great place to people-watch!! If you haven't been - go!

Locale accogliente, dall'arredamento moderno e simpatico. Personale gentilissimo, cibo ben preparato. Uno dei pochi locali a Belfast dove si serve la cena anche dopo le 20. Vicinissimo alla Cattedrale.
Food was simply delicious. Really enjoyed the whole experience.

A perfect evening. Food and drink fantastic but the service was possibly Thebes we have ever experienced. Keep up the good work.
Really quick service with friendly and helpful staff.
We had a wee school friend reunion on Sunday evening as we have all now turned 40! We had such a lovely time in MIB. The atmos was brilliant, food was awesome and the guys serving couldn’t have been nicer, even making up a mocktail for the driver in the group! 5 stars without a doubt and we’ll definitely be back.
The service was great as was the food! The prosecco is a must!
