About Seahorse Restaurant at Grand Central Belfast
Hastings Grand Central is more than a hotel. It’s an ode to a city. Standing tall in Bedford Street, this impressive jewel fuses glamour and grandeur with a uniquely Belfast spirit. Perfectly placed in Belfast City. Just as Belfast is at the heart of the Grand Central, the Grand Central is at the heart of Belfast. Set in the up and coming Linen Quarter, the hotel is a spectacular hub for exploring Titanic Quarter’s history or Cathedral Quarter’s charming cobbled streets, pubs and eateries. Theatre buffs, shopaholics and historians alike will all be spoiled for choice, with a host of options right on their doorstep. Conveniently located for all transport access, the Grand Central is perfectly placed for every city centre endeavour – from business to leisure and everything in between.
This is one exquisite venue with three distinct spaces. Quality exudes from every angle – from the phenomenal cuisine and cocktails to the lavish fabrics and fittings. The art deco nods, high ceilings and sense of space add a distinctive drama – and the vibe inside shifts as the day rolls in and the sun rolls round. The restaurant and bar feel bright at breakfast and mesmerisingly dreamy of an evening. And this is the Seahorse’s real allure, it’s a destination with multiple moods – the perfect backdrop for sumptuous afternoon tea or delicious dining and fine wines.
An amazing night with an amazing hostess and servers. Incredible food and beautiful atmosphere.
Could not fault anything about our meal, the girls who served us were fabulous and a couple of them were only training! Food was incredible and very relaxing atmosphere. Perfect evening to celebrate my dads retirement.
Warm welcome and friendly service in Grand Central, the Seahorse Bar and the Observatory. Staff outstanding, attentive and fun, food excellent, particularly the lobster mac and cheese, and the venison. Visit to the Observatory a wonderful experience, a must-see venue in Belfast. Will be back and would recommend, make a great Christmas present!
Very enjoyable evening.
Luxurious but relaxed atmosphere, really great service, staff were wonderful.
Enjoyable experience. Plenty of food and tea refreshed with fresh pots. All staff were very friendly.
We would like to say our meal was wonderful and the food was delicious and would love to say thank you to Lauren for the wonderful service she provided nothing was to much trouble... once again we had a wonderful experience with the hotel and will definitely be back soon
The service is first class. When we arrived, the bell boy brought us the restaurant which is located at first floor. For us, as first time visitor, that’s big welcome and really nice! The food is great, so and service! Definitely will be back soon!
Beautiful food very friendly service.
Our meal was beautiful, the staff went over and above to ensure we had a great evening in the Seahorse.
Fantastic food and service. My wife and I were well looked after by Aimee and we’ll definitely be back again. Well recommended if you’re in town.
We were greeted by the most pleasant and well mannered staff this afternoon in the Seahorse restaurant. I love the wee touches such as remembering I had informed them a week previous that it was my fiancées birthday, they wished her happy birthday and provided complimentary processo. The service was impeccable, something that I’m always attentive to especially paying for a 5* service such as the Grand Central or the Merchant. The gentleman who served us could not do enough for us, always ensuring we had the best experience possible. He offered to take us to the top floor conservatory to see panoramic view of Belfast sights, he was most kind. It’s our first time enjoying dining in the Grand Central and will most definitely return.
Yet again another fault less evening. From stunning cocktails to fabulous food courses all brought together by a wonderful team of bar / restaurant members..This is how its done and.other restaurants should take note..Looking forward to our next evening at Seahorse.
We really enjoyed our afternoon tea today, the service was also excellent !

We had an excellent night at the seahorse restaurant ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Food was unbelievable. The service was 5 star and the setting and atmosphere was first class. Would recommend to anyone. Had a request for a birthday and the staff had it all waiting when we arrived to make it special.
My friend and I enjoyed afternoon tea in the Seahorse today and were delighted with the whole experience. We were greeted warmly on arrival and conducted at once to a table where we were served promptly even though we had arrived approximately half an hour in advance of our scheduled time. The food was delicious and plentiful and in fact we were unable to finish it but did not lose out, as uneaten items were taken away to be packed up and then returned to us in tasteful little cardboard boxes for us to take away. Throughout our visit, the staff could not have been more courteous, friendly or helpful. Appreciation to all and we look forward to a return visit.
Had a lovely evening in the seahorse restaurant, staff very friendly, service very quick.
I was hosting a dinner part for dear and valued friends every thing was great Chole and colleagues were great hosts food was top class I am a frequent visitor to the sea horse but my grumble is that on a special occasion I think as a regular I should get access to the observatory tonight was for example a birthday celebration for a guest but I could not get to the observatory pre dinner or post dinner
Excellent service. Great Food. Would be happy to recommend to others.
Food was amazing. Fantastic service. Staff were brilliant. Lovely restaurant.
