If Northern Ireland’s capital city could speak, it would certainly tell a tale or ten... Following years of sectarian violence, Belfast has evolved and transformed and this is in part due to the troubles quieting down after the Good Friday Agreement in 1998. Belfast is also the birthplace of the RMS Titanic before it sunk in 1912, and the ship’s legacy is commemorated in the renovated Titanic Quarter dockyard where you will also find shipbuilder Harland & Wolff’s Drawing Offices as well as the Titanic Slipways, which often host open-air concerts. Despite its difficult past, Belfast was, and always will be, a cultural hotspot with an excellent food scene to boot. So whether you’re visiting Belfast for a few days or you're a local in need of some cool new food places to add to your repertoire, that’s where we come in... But where to begin? Sit back and let Quandoo help you sniff out the best restaurants in Belfast!
