Restaurant description

Winner of a Michelin star for its bold innovative menus, OX presents beautiful dishes made using only the finest available seasonal produce. Overlooking the River Lagan, this acclaimed modern eatery features a simple, contemporary interior, and a more secluded mezzanine dining area for intimate meals.

Showcasing the very best in seasonal Irish dining, OX crafts unique tasting menus with inventive flavours and stunning presentation. Fresh tastes of the sea can be found in dishes like the lobster with pickled mussels, buttermilk and horseradish, while the succulent châteaubriand is complemented with black garlic and sprouting broccoli.

Strawberries from Antrim for dessert are combined with jasmine and lime, and there is a selection of Irish cheeses to finish with too. A wide selection of Irish drinks are also served at OX in Belfast, such as gin from Cork, whiskey from County Laois, and beer from County Down.

    Highlight of my 24 hour trip to Belfast was lunch at OX. Impeccable service, great setting and the food was sensational. Winter canapés, scallop for starter and lamb for main - all were absolutely delicious, as so was the dark chocolate blood orange dessert. Couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. Highly recommend.

    My husband and I had a fabulous meal here on a Thursday. Been reading about Ox for ages but never stop in the city. Superb meal and atmosphere.

    I love everything about Ox. The food is of course faultless every time. The service is literally second to none. Every visit is a really special experience. I have been many times and intend to return many times.

    Fabulous experience as we had the tasting menu and wine pairing. Staff well versed without being intrusive which I have experienced with other tasting menus. They gave you enough time between courses and the tables so well spaced in the restaurant which gives comfort and privacy. Ox has always been my favourite Belfast restaurant. The food was magnificent and all the add ons like the canapes and petit fours make it extra special.

    The food, drinks & service were excellent! I enjoyed the dish & drinks pairing a lot. They were all matched perfectly. But it took the kitchen 4 hours to serve us a 6-course tasting menu! My friends & I didn't expect it to be THAT long. I had to cut mine short by not taking the last course & tea after because I had to rush to a scheduled appointment.
