A few other notable fancy spots that are sure to make your wallet blush include Jacob & Co. Steakhouse, Weslodge and the ever-popular Lee Restaurant.
Looking for a great patio for people-watching? Belfast Love is a fantastic pub as is The Foggy Dew (or simply Foggy as us locals call it), further down King West.
