About Chubby Cherub

If you have ever been to the cafes and restaurants of italy you will observe the small, compact and quaint nature of autentic italian café culture.

The chubby cherub is designed with this premise in mind.

We are a small intimate venue and therefore space is at a premium. Elbow room in some cases is not aforded for large groups however, we feel this makes the chubby cherub experience much better

Fantastic service for the evening. I would recommend taking away the small 2 person table right in front of the entrance as it is cold and there is no room or privacy. My partner and I, another table of 2 and a table of 3 all had a go and being seated there, asking to move and then moving

The food was absolutely amazing, easily the best Italian in Belfast (in my opinion). I also loved how my request for a good seat was honoured and my girlfriend was amazed with the ‘Cupid’s corner’ so I thank you for that. Only criticisms were that at a point in the night the room got very cold and I can’t make out whether it was because a door was left open or whether it was because we were sat underneath a vent, due to this I felt my food got colder quicker but the taste of my meal made up for the fact. Seeing as a I study hospitality I notice little things such as the correct service of wine etc hence my 3 star service scoring (as well as feeling ever so sightly rushed out the restaurant). Besides those minor pieces of feedback, my girlfriend and I had an amazing night and she was happy, meaning I was happy. Thank you!!

Although I was feeling very poorly the waitress couldn’t have been more helpful. Even though I left a lot of food the little bit I did have was fantastic The wife really enjoyed the food and wine Not a great anniversary meal for me (not your fault) but definitely would go back if I’m ever in Belfast

We arrived for our booking just after 7 and our table wasn't available as the previous party were still finishing off their meal. The waitress advised that they were just finishing up and we could go and wait in the sister restaurant and come back in about 10/15 minutes. We advised that we would go else where and come back. The waitress kept trying to force us to go to the sister company even after we said it was fine and even turned up her nose when we advised where we planned to go. As we were leaving she was still repeating, go to our sister company, its just round the corner. Following our return, we ordered food. Two of the parties ordered chicken tagliatelle. When the chicken was cut into one of the portion was pink, this was raised with the waitress who took it back to the kitchen only to return to advise that it had been cooked correctly, and for as long as the other chicken and it was fine. Therefore, not replacing it as asked. The waitress set the food back down and then stood at the table, making everyone feel awkward. The party advised she would just eat the pasta then and didn't touch the chicken as she felt no other option was available to her. When the food was finished another waiter asked about the chicken and my friend advised that it was pink and she had raised this at the time but nothing was done. He advised he would sort it out and left the table. He never returned or did anything about it. We then waited for quite some time before anyone came back near us about desert and when we said no they walked off before we could ask for the bill and again left us sitting. At this stage we had finished all our drinks and there was no plates left on the table. The staff stood around the bar like area with their backs to us the whole time and we had to get up from our table and ask for the bill at the end of the night. The service was not to the stand expected and put us off returning.

Too expensive for what it is. Staff lovely & apologetic for food taking an hour and a half to come out- wasn’t even peak time so don’t know why it took so long.

Food was tasteless and lacked seasoning. Overpriced for quality of food. Will not book again nor recommend to friends or family. Really disappointing

Fabulous quirky chic decor and really yummy food and great service, loved the whole thing and will definitely be back! Only negative point was that the deposit I had to pay when booking online wasn't deducted from my bill but I'm sure this will be sorted out. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Great experience at the Chubby cherub, good food, music and overall service. Small detail but would maybe suggest a little less lighting (almost too bright!)

Our meal was delicious but when it came to paying the bill by card a tip was unable to be added. Regretfully we had no cash to tip. Would highly recommend to friends and family and we will definitely be back. Food and drinks were great. We will be sure to bring cash on our next visit.

Gluten review options really need to be improved - it's one of the recommended places in Belfast on google. Also staff attentiveness also needs to be looked at - had to ask for water 4 times. Also paid £20 deposit to secure the table and had told the waitress and yet when the bill was brought, it hadnt been removed. Table of 4 had a service charge too. Food was delicious and place had a good atmosphere but alot to be improved.

Restaurant too brightly lit up and not as intimate as it was at previous location. Food enjoyable but small portions and a bit overpriced to be honest.

Really gorgeous tasty food. There was a real buzz about the restaurant & it was really welcoming. Staff were excellent. They were attentive but not overwhelming which we loved. We will definitely be back.
