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.

Made in Belfast is/was one of my favourite places to eat. Very dissappointed when we were there on Saturday. With the exception of of one lovely guy, who is always so helpful and pleasant, the other staff were a bit disinterested to be honest. Portion sizes were smaller than usual. The fat the chips had been cooked in could have done with being changed. I ordered sticky toffee pudding which in the past has been the best I have tasted. It had been over heated in the microwave and it was barely edible with the spoon (Rick hard)! The sticky toffee sauce was minimal. I was there with friends. I had booked this for a reunion. I felt pretty embarrassed as I had recommended we eat with you. My friends all took my word that Made in Belfast was usually a much better standard, so we didn't raise any issue with the staff. Our meal was definitely not worth the money or the gratuity. Hate to see good restaurants drop their standards.

This was a graduation celebration The graduate selected your venue. Very, very average. Several (3) of our large group ordered burgers. They were not asked how they wanted them cooked but rest assured they did not want them charred. The main meal took so long to arrive that we were told in an abrupt manner that we would not have time for another course. This decision was final despite many empty tables. (Quite a few were still empty when we passed by 35 minutes notes later). Very poor I certainly will not be returning and will be advising friends of our friends of our negative experience

We really enjoyed our visit to Made in Belfast. We chose from from the Showtime menu and the food was delicious. We were also delighted about the flexibility of the menu and the ability to have so many dishes gluten free. The service was attentive and very friendly. Would have no hesitation in recommending.

Great food, decor and atmosphere. Never been before but based on personal recommendations and reviews I'm glad I paid a visit. Quirky decor and food was tasty. Had the 2 courses for £18. Would definitely go back.

The variety on the menu was great and the food was lovely. Our server was very pleasant but she forgot to bring down one of our dishes, we had to ask for it after waiting for about 10 minutes. We were offered the dessert menu/tea and coffee but she never came back with them.
