Our favourite restaurant in Belfast!

Our favourite restaurant in Belfast is The Bird Cage on Stranmillis Road.  It houses addictive chicken with a difference. We have no problem recommending this scrumptious restaurant to our guests here in the Village.  It’s got great food,  music, ambience, and friendly, helpful staff. The menu is designed to share like Tapas only you get very generous portions! We recommend the Mediterranean potatoes and potato skins for sides! This place is a must visit!

Random Testimonial

  • ~ Anonymous (USA) via Hostel World

    "This is honestly the best hostel I've ever stayed at. I wish we could have stayed another week, just because the staff were so fun and helpful. It felt as if we were staying at a friends house, and they gave us all the local lowdown. The hostel itself was very clean and relaxed. The common room was great to hangout in, with music hookup and pool table. The location was also awesome, close to the college and walking distance from the bus station and downtown. Definitely stay"
