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.
Hadn’t been for a few years, perhaps due to lack of vegan options? Booked in Sunday week ago and food was so good we booked again for Sunday past. Vegan options were lovely. We will be back again soon. Compliments to the chef & staff. Thank you
Our dinner was amazing. My sister is lactose intolerant she asked for a sauce that was dairy/lactose free and they provided no probs they also made sure the rest of her dinner was cooked with out butter ect without us asking. We will 100% be back food was outstanding

We've eaten in MiB many times. Another great night there.
Lovely haven my coat hung up for me. Service was fantastic!! Very friendly staff !
First class as always
Our experience as a large group was absolutely brilliant. I think we had Rhona looking after us and she was really impressive. Rhona made everything run like clock work and kept on top of drinks orders. We had a slight mix up with food orders and it could not have been handled any better. Every course was faultless and the cocktails were perfect too. Can't wait to come back!
I love everything about Made in Belfast but I always forget that the portion sizes are far to big - I only order a main course and still struggle to finish it - I would never have room for 2 let alone 3 courses - I had the duck breast which was really yummy but one breast would have sufficed then I could have had room for dessert
Always a great place to eat
Second time being in Made in Belfast and can only have nice things to say. From the great food, staff and atmosphere you are sure to have a great night out and take home the memories.
