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

Really glad to see Chubby Cherub open again. As always the food was great and the service superb. Staff are exceptional. Would love to see Pollo Tagliatelle and Lemon Posset back on the menu 🤞🏻

To be our last dinner in Belfast as we have now emigrated to Europe, I was pleased to see there was an opportunity to book Chubby Cherub as many restaurants were still closed. Unfortunately disappointed in every aspect. Obviously C-V presents incredible challenges but only two serving staff appeared too little and they were run off their feet, forgetting our requests for extra cheese and black pepper. Also the bill failed to take account of the mandatory booking deposit of £10 (this we heard also also happening with others). There was no acknowledgement or direction from any staff at our arrival as we waited and basic meet and greet with a smile was entirely missing. We ordered the beef with pasta - and unfortunately we both thought it was lacking in any flavour (On being asked we did say). We could see another customer also unhappy with the beef. The best factor was the safety measures taken - excepting the narrow entrance where a guy pushed his way out with a bundle of pizzas without any regard for any distancing or an excuse me - there was sanitiser outside the entrance; serving staff and chefs wore visors; cleaning of tables after guests left; and there's great compartmentalised seating which actually added to the decor. Still pleased to see you reopen, and I know it will get back to standard - congratulations on the hard work and all the best for the future.

Couldn’t ask for more from the staff and the restaurant. Considering it was the first night of the restaurant reopening, everything was so seamless and the staff did a terrific job of making everything feel as normal as possible. It was also encouraging and reassuring to see all of the safety precautions put into place to keep customers and staff safe. Not to mention the food was amazing!

Have always loved Chubby Cherub. Food is always good and waitressed were amazing. This was my first time in their new restaurant - whilst it was lovely, I would say it was just a little too bright for my liking.

Fab restaurant and fab food. Just been to Rome and the food is better in the Chubby Cherub! Staff are so friendly and helpful. Lovely blonde lady who may be a Manager is worth a special mention. She remembered me being there a few times. She was so friendly and went out of her way to look after us. Customer service at its best and thats what makes this restaurant stand out. Beautiful surroundings could maybe dim the lights in the evening would be even nicer.

Amazing food and really generous portion sizes. The service was great and for a family of 6 we were all served at the same time which was impressive. Drinks options were great too.

I had a lovely time in chubby cherub. We even went back the next day for our lunch. Our food was gorgeous, tasty and well presented. Service was quick and staff were very attentive. I only have 4 stars for food & drink because I found the options for alcoholic drinks was limited for myself. I appreciate it is an Italian restaurant and this is why but I would have enjoyed something like west coast cooler. However I did pick a lovely cocktail eventually instead. But a few cocktails on the menu that I tried to order were not available as they had ran out of particular ingredients which is odd when the place is located in the middle of Belfast. But all that aside I really enjoyed the whole experience and the beautiful setting so much that i returned the next day. I would highly recommend to anyone looking breakfast, lunch, evening meal and cocktails.

Really disappointed. I had been before to the old restaurant. Great portions and service. I was so looking forward to introducing my friends to your restaurant but how disapointed we were. We waiting over 30mins to get a drink, i ordered the super food salad with extra chicken. I nearly choked on the chicken it was that dry and it was a very small portion of salad
