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.
Amazing meal, wonderful service! Highly recommend & would definitely return if we come back to Belfast!
Service was great, very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious, well Cooke and presented! Not the cheapest but the curtain calls menu drives better value and the cocktail deals. Would definitely go again and would like to try the lunch menu!

Booked for birthday weekend for family and friends. Wanted something casual and figured Made in Belfast fitted. It took meals to a whole new level of excellent. Amazing food and service fantastic. Certainly exceeded all of my expectations. Thank you for an amazing night
Amazing food, cocktails and service. Best dinner we have had in a long time. Looking forward to going back. Thank you
Fantastic meal and great service - love Made In Belfast!
We booked this meal weeks in advance due to lockdown and then with re-opening couldn't get a table at first. The menu was fab, the guy who served us was brilliant. He was professional in that ensured we had everything we needed and also friendly by having a chat and while still maintaining distance and wearing a face mask. He has an air of calmness about him despite having a busy night ahead. He is a credit to you. Our food was delicious I have no other word for it. I had waited for a Made in Belfast Espresso Martini from March and it didn't let me down. They were great. Fab night, delighted can still get for a meal at current times in a brilliant restaurant.
Amazing place, great location, lovely food.
Excellent food and service
Amazing food, great drinks, friendly staff. Felt very safe with covid safety measures in place. Will be back! Thanks team :)
Quality of the food is great and remains consistently so, we have been back loads over the course of the 9 years since our first visit and always know we will have a good meal. The menu could do with a couple of seasonal dishes to compliment the staple offering, to keep regular customers coming back, or a couple of specials each week etc. Service on our last visit was great, very friendly staff, but with 7 tables in on a Sunday it took two hours for a main course and dessert which could have been a bit speedier.
Had a great meal, lovely staff, super food. Would definitely return for more!
Couldn’t fault the food, service was impeccable, and cocktails were amazing. We won’t leave it so long until our next visit. X
I thought the foods presentation was poor and the main dish ,the steak was tough
nice atmosphere and felt well distanced from everyone else. Service a little slow but I suppose to be expected given reduced staffing. good food once it arrived. all in all a pleasureable experience.
We enjoyed a great meal it came slightly cold but very tasty.
Perfect food, drink, service and helpful friendly staff Will be back again
Awesome food, lovely staff
We visited the Talbot street venue this week for a well deserved works Do. 8 of us, so we were accommodated 2 tables side by side. We even managed to stick to social distancing rules. Each one of us had a perfect meal, the prawn and crab starter was divine and the fish of the day with risotto was beyond heavenly. The server helped to make the experience lush. Very glad we sampled his recommended House Special espresso martini.
