Superb food and delicious wines - we opted for the set 3 course menu and a Languedoc Chardonnay and a Puglia Primitivo - great value and very quaffable!

This was our second time at the Ox Belfast. I had booked the 6 taster course for my husbands birthday.
The Lobster and chateaubriand courses were beautiful. Packed with flavour.
The wines matched were perfect.
We didn't enjoy the cauliflower risotto - my husband called it bland!
The dessert was ok but not amazing.
My main disappointment was the service. The table was allocated to us for 2 1/2 hours which is a considerable length of time and should be substantial for our experience. However we had to wait far too long in between courses. This was evident when we were presented with a drinks menu for coffee. We had to wait 25 minutes to order off this menu. When I asked for 2 bailey coffees I was informed our table was needed in 15 minutes. I politely said we would not bother with the coffees and just have our dessert. I was encouraged to order to coffees and reassured they would bring them to the table swiftly. Unfortunately these arrived 10 minutes later leaving us 5 minutes to drink them. Two minutes after they arrived we were presented with the bill and informed our table was required. This made us feel very uncomfortable and rushed. When you spend £225 on a meal for 2 people and feel rushed due to no fault of our own it is quite annoying.
On our first experience to the Ox we didn't have this concern and our courses all came out swiftly. Unfortunately this occasion the length between courses was too long and had a negative impact on our dining experience.

Apart from getting all of our course out of order ( it became an amusement to us ) the food was amazing, attention excellent & the wines top class. They more than made up for it all. Couldn’t fault this restaurant.

The restaurant was recommended by a friend who is a food critic in Glasgow. We were only staying one night in Belfast and decided to have lunch with you before we travelled on. The food was excellent and the service friendly. My only regret was that we were both driving and could not sample your wine pairing suggestions. Next time!
