About JAMES ST BELFAST
James St. is the coming together of two of Belfast’s best restaurants, James Street South Restaurant and The Bar and Grill at James St.The new offering is the best of the Bar and Grill's menu with a few light touches to the fine cooking of James Street South.
Classic dishes are firmly established on the menu from the crab and chilli linguine, Dundrum crab used on toast, alongside classic bistro dishes such as farmhouse terrine, fruit de mer plates available from Thursday. The charcoal grill still plays centre stage, cooking not just some of the best steaks and prime cuts Northern Ireland has to offer but also fresh whole fish, pork and vegetables.
With a larger, more established bar area, a large range of wines are available alongside a considered spirit list and an extensive whisky offering. Locally produced beer, cider and gins take pride of place on the drinks menu.
Owned by Niall McKenna since 2003 the revamped James St. will offer locals and tourists a great dining experience in a Belfast city centre.
The restaurant team is headed up by Paul McGovern as Restaurant Manager.
We are located minutes walk away from the Europa Hotel, The Crown Bar and the City Hall.
Booked online just half an hour before arriving at James St. Warm and welcoming staff. Service was fast, food hot and so so tasty. Lettuce salad was so fresh, cooling and such a compliment with our steaks. Our only negative was the tables are slightly on the small size. A special occasion spot.
Excellent in every respect except for the bill, I am not a fan of the restaurant adding a discretionary 10% tip to the bill, it is my choice weather to tip or not and to select both the amount and to whom it should be given. In future I shall warn potential customers of your policy of including this extra charge. An unfortunate end to what had been a great experience.
Excellent service. Good food and good portions!
Excellent food and service as usual. Can’t wait to get back. Thanks
We love going to James Street South. We are always made very welcome by everyone, especially Paul. The chateaubriand is excellent but don’t ever take the truffle chips off the menu!! We are looking forward to going to the cookery school later on this month. Keep up the good work. Think you’re going to have to put up with us going to your restaurant for a long time!! Well done!! 👍
Fantastic food and great service. Will definitely be back
The staff were very friendly and helpful with menu questions.. The food was perfect.
Everything was fantastic
Great food and service as always. Best in Belfast!
Excellent as always. Paul at front of house always looks after us so well.
Friendly, efficient staff and food was great. Bit of an echo doesn’t help atmosphere.
James St is worth the extra money spent - I had the most delicious plaice dish and the wine was superb. I will be back!
Another amazing meal. The ambience was classy and sophisticated with wonderful cocktails at the bar and high quality service throughout. We lived it and will try Sunday brunch next time xx
Lovely lunch great menu

Absolutely first class evening with superb food and service. 10 out of 10.
Fabulous night, great team building event. Kerry and Niamh were fantastic and really added to the entire experience.
A wonderful meal and a great total experience. Who was the angel who met us at the door and made the whole evening such a success.
The quality if the food was just okay and best described as bland.
Most enjoyable lunch
A real jem of a restaurant, excellent food showcasing the best of Ireland, well presented, excellent flavours, local ingredients and good value. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. If only I lived in NI to enjoy this place more frequently! We were recommended this place by a local Taxi driver, it did not disappoint.
A really good dining experience. Would highly recommend.
