About Stix And Stones Balmoral

Stix & Stones offers diners a delicious selection of carefully selected local steak and seafood combined with the unique personal cooking experience on hot stones (an optional choice) in beautifully decorated surroundings.

The taste has well and truly travelled and along with it, the Stix & Stones ethos, 'fresh quality food sourced locally'. All ingredients are sourced from local suppliers where possible and organic, free range and artisan producers are reviewed on a regular basis, to find the very best ingredients.

“Establishing a new restaurant in an already thriving hotel was, of course, a clever move, but while the Stix & Stones brand brought a reputation of its own it also brought all of its quality..”- Michael Jackson, Belfast Media Group , 2019.

Food and drink were excellent quality, only problem was the service, which as the restaurant got busier, after 6.30pm, was slow, we should’ve Been finished at least 45 minutes earlier than we were.

We went for my daughters First Holy Communion. Food was absolutely amazing and the service was top class. Scraped plates all round which is very rare for my kids. I would definitely recommend and will definitely be back.

Myself and 3 friends ordered 3 rump steaks to be cooked by he chef medium. Myself and one friend ordered plain fries and 2 ordered fries with bacon and mayo. The 3 steaks came well done and mixed the frie orders up. We ended up cooking the steak on the stone which was nice. The 2 girls said there was no bacon with there fries. I thought it was nice but a little on the pricey side as the steak was a good piece but the portion of chips and sauce for the price was a little mean. Staff were nice and friendly.

My table was booked for 830pm and it wasn't ready until after 9pm. Between starters and mains, we waited 45 minutes, meaning we were not finished eating until approximately 1030pm. I appreciate it was busy, but this really is not an acceptable level of service. Staff were very apologetic and pleasant and the food was fabulous, its just disappointing that we waited so long.

Really bad service, waitresses didn’t care about tables. A lot of waitresses for a small restaurant.

£10.95 steak offer is excellent and should be kept on the menu. The restaurant was very very busy but there just wasn’t enough staff on. The staff who were working did an excellent job.

I went here for my birthday dinner. We were seated and they said they will come back with menus. The place was pretty quiet which gave me an insight on whether or not the food was going to be good. They had brought us the menus 15 minutes after saying they would bring us menus. The workers were a bit slow and dropped glasses and messed up our order. The soup was rotten and when it came to mains it was even worse half of our order was missing! When the bill came we were charged for items we had never received. Will definitely not be back biddys does a better job!

I cant blame the service but an hour and a half wait for a steak I cook myself is too long. Food is good and I will be back but that is far too long. When I mentioned it I was told it was because we ordered a starter. Therefore the advice seems to be...don't get a starter.

Deeply disappointed with stix and stones balmoral. Myself and my son both ordered ribeye steaks priced at £23.50 for 8oz the biggest steaks on the menu, then sides at £3.50 and sauces at £1.50 on top of that. My steak looked a lot thinner than his and my steak also had a large piece of fat in the middle. When I cut that away my steak looked like a 6oz. After having complained that this was expensive for a small piece of steak I was given another one to which half of the steak was fat (I have pictures) I wasn’t given or even offered fresh sides for mine either so had a new hot steak with cold chips and sauce. My son had chunky chips and he got about 8 for £3.50. I was also told that’s the way the steak comes cut directly from the supplier. I’ve had ribeye loads of times and never have I had that much fat. It’s a disgrace the price of it. The manager took my steak off the bill, but offered no apology. I’d have been better going to diggers stix and stonesfor a 10oz sirloin with sides and sauces included for £18. Also the signature picana steak is £10.95 with sauce and side included. How can you justify making people pay £24 for a tiny steak. I would have thought franchises were all the same, you would expect them to be anyway. Definitely won’t be back to balmoral

Had beautiful family meal. The food was amazing it was our 1st time at Sticks & Stone in the Balmoral and I would defiantly recommend it. You get what you paid for. The staff were really nice and accommodating to our needs. It was birthday meal and they sent out a beautiful dessert with Happy Birthday this was a really nice touch.
