About Made In Belfast - Cityhall
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.
Our waitress was extremely pleasant and helpful with a non invasive yet personal touch.
Starter dishes were good. We are not vegetarians, but my wife and I both decided to order a vegetarian main course. Both of these turned out to be poor fare.....my wife’s mushroom risotto was bland and without flavor; my curry consisted mostly of cauliflower, cauliflower and more cauliflower. Food served to neighboring tables (burger, fish, etc) looked much more attractive, so perhaps we made a bad call in ordering vegetarian food? On the positive side, waiter service was very good and the staff were efficient and personable.
Staff were very slow, took 25mins to get our drinks. Waiter took our dinner plates away and never offered dessert menu or bill so waited a further 10mins before a waitress came and asked if we were ok
We had a lovely lunch - cocktails were fabulous. Thanks!
Lovely tasty meal in quirky surroundings served by polite and friendly staff.
Great food and brilliant service will definetly be back ! Thank you .
Lovely food and drink, very tasty. Would recommend others to try
Lovely restaurant, great service, fab food!
Tasty food, prompt and pleasant service, perfect 😊
We pre-ordered our meal as we were required to vacate our table within a two hour timescale which was no problem. Unfortunately this meant that the starters came out immediately we sat down before even our drinks order was complete and the main course followed very quickly. I feel you need a short period between courses to allow digestion. I realise the staff wanted us to move on quickly but this was a bit too much. This unfortunately would put us off any future visit.
I told the staff that day I was so impressed with their efficiency. We preordered for a quick lunch for 15 & drinks ordered and delivered then food arrived promptly & hot!!! A big plus for me!!! Well done guys we'll be back. A shout out to the male tall waiter a true asset to your team ... very pleasant and efficient. Everyone loved their food too!
As usual lovely meal, great service and value for money. In fact, my colleagues (if we can agreed dates) will hopefully get booked for a festive lunch in December :)
The food was excellent and appropriately priced, but what made the evening was the staff. Friendly, knowledgeable with a bit of cheeky, sparky edge that had us all laughing.
Had late lunch on a Friday afternoon with the girls. Food & service were both brilliant. We were so relaxed & no one rushed us away. Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!
Had a fantastic family Sunday lunch. Waiters were top notch and scored extra kudos with the kids for their expert knowledge of Adventure Time.
We had a great meal at Made In Belfast. Staff were amazingly helpful and friendly - credit to them all. Food was perfect and couldn't fault it. Surroundings were quirky but welcoming. Overall a great experience (again) and will be back. Many thanks
You fed a large group of 26 wonderfully well and everyone without exception thoroughly enjoyed their meal and visit to made in Belfast.
Had a great night with girlfriends cathing up. waitress who served us was brillant, just wish we had got her name as she deserves a mention having to put up with us all. last but by no means least the food it was beautiful and we all loved our choices. We will definitely be back.
Disappointing evening meal, rude service and overcharged twice. We booked a table for our family and friends to celebrate our very casual wedding. We’d pre ordered food and whilst it was nice the portion sizes are unnecessarily big and it was very rushed. We wish we had ordered two courses instead of three because so much went to waste and no time was given between courses before the next arrived.. After the meal we decided to order more drinks and cocktails for everyone as it was a celebration after all. When they were delivered we were told there was a time limit on the table and we needed to leave in 5 mins. Shocked and offended we asked for the bill which had to be changed twice as they had overcharged us. Sitting with a calculator, adding up an overcharged bill on my wedding day isn’t an ideal memory and we didn’t even get so much as an apology. When it was finally calculated right we asked them to remove the ‘discretionary’ £30+ service charge as we really weren’t happy. We were then aggressively confronted by a staff member who seemingly didn’t think that this was a ‘discretionary’ charge at all and starting banging around the card machine before finally storming off in a huff. Safe to say we won’t ever be returning which is very disappointing given it was our wedding day and the whole evening was ruined. Disappointing.
We opted for the pre theatre menu. Our servicer was amazing, very friendly with a good sense of humour, he is a credit to MIB. The food was gorgeous, we had the steak and chips, and fish and chips, all cooked to perfection. Followed by dessert. Would highly recommend, but you must ask for the pre theatre menu and order before 6pm.
We ate from the express lunch menu, good food served quickly and good value for money. I would recommend to others and will definitely return. Many thanks!
Excellent food, excellent service!
Lovely relaxed atmosphere with excellent food
My mum and i ordered from the showtime menu. We got two steaks medium rare. They were the toughest cuts of meat we have ever tasted. It took ages to chew and we gave up after a while. We left them half eaten. Spent £50 on a meal and am really disappointed.
