Although the menu states that vegan options are available I wouldn’t recommend asking for the vegetarian burger to be veganized. Bun was replaced with sliced sourdough (not even toasted) and no sauces in the burger at all. Very dry and unexceptional. First and last visit.

Great menu. We had the Early Bird - everything was excellent. Compliments to the chef. Service was great too. I noticed an elderly English lady coming in alone - don't know what she said, but loved the way she was treated by the waiter. Having travelled alone myself, that's why I particularly liked how she was treated as a valued customer. Thank you for everything. Will definitely be back.

Great to find somewhere serving imaginative vegetarian, fish and meat-based food in an area where fried, grilled and chips seems dominant.

This is a friendly and welcoming restaurant that specialises in preparing dishes sourced from local farmers. I had the shepherds pie and an eton mess and both were very tasty.

Menu avec peu de choix
Prix élevé
On nous a facturé 4 £ 5 tranches de pain sans beurre. Cela représente le prix de 5 baguettes soit 50 tranche de pain en France.
C'est incorrecte.

There was a lot to love about our dinner at Kitch, but the most outstanding thing was the service. Not fussy, but incredibly attentive, and tremendously helpful and friendly. The food could have been simply decent (which it not, it was much better than that) and I would recommend this place, simply based on the overall experience.

There was a mistake with my main dish, and they bent over backwards to make it right. As a former restaurant manager, I have ideas about how that sort of thing should be handled, and the folks at Kitch exceeded what I would expect.
Everything was tasty, with the pasta standing out as perfectly cooked, in a perfectly seasoned sauce, and just the right mix of sauce/pasta. Fresh, local ingredients make it that much better. Even my picky child thought the fries were great, some of the best in the UK, according to him.

Also of note was a completely separate vegetarian menu, which made my two vegetarians very happy.

Cocktail selection good, with many Kitch specials. My drink was tasty, strong enough, and arrived very promptly.

Also really enjoyed the eclectic playlist, at just the right volume to be able to hear the music but also hear each other without shouting.

If I’m ever in Belfast again, I will make sure to have a meal at Kitch.

Sorry I never took any photos I was too busy eating, the starter of honey chilli chicken was great, and the better halfs salt and chilli squid was tasty too, the portion sizes for a starter were large but they were a little more expensive than we'd be used to but not by a lot, the mains of lamb Shepard's pie and the chicken salad were also very nice but the portion size on the Shepard's was a little small and seemed to be more potatoes than anything but after the size of the starter I didn't mind. Neither of us needed a dessert but after how good the meal was we couldn't at least try them, one lemon meringue pie and an Eton mess later we left the place thoroughly stuffed. We had 2 pints and 2 gin& lemonade and it came to £75, which was good for the quality of the meal. I'd like to go back if I was that way again and I think I'd probably order 3 or 4 starters and a couple sides to have tapas style between us. The wife says any who massive attack on the ambient music is good in her book, the atmosphere was great.

I’ve been here many times but always in the daytime so I was keen to see how the place fared at night. As expected I was not disappointed the evening I went. Great food as always. Service was excellent. James on the front desk was as entertaining as always and Gorka, our waiter, was terrific. Top marks to all concerned.

Was disappointed. First time there, took a friend visiting from USA. Checked the menu on line before booking as I’m vegan. Servers were very nice and obviously new to the place as they couldn’t answer most of our questions but I repeat they were lovely, helpful and respectful. We were all disappointed with our meals so it wasn’t just one of us. As a vegan I was very disappointed with what choices I had and the meal I ordered. Wouldn’t go back.

After reading other reviews on this restaurant I was really looking forward to it but I have to say our experience was very average. Service was extremely slow- it was not busy by any means so really no excuse for this. Plus our starters were brought out at different times- my friend was finished eating by the time mine arrived. The starters were ok but the mains were fairly disappointing. The steak was tasty and well cooked but the chips were soggy and the chickpea burger was overly salty and very cloying with the brioche bun- they did not work well together as both were very dry- could have done with some sauce of some sort. We did not stay for dessert. Overall it was a disappointing dining experience. Maybe we just got them on a bad night as most other reviews seem good.

We were seated straightaway and our order for food and drink was taken. Food took quite a while to arrive considering how quiet the restaurant was. We shared a starter that was really nice and very tasty. Our main courses took a while to be served and the croutons were missing from the chicken salad but were delivered to the table once they were asked for. The dessert was delicious and overall it was a nice evening and good value.

The food was good and the right portions for tapas. Staff overall were attentive but seemed to disappear after we finished eating. We had to chase to get the bill and then they were in a rush to get us out as it was almost closing time.

Had a lovely Father’s Day meal here and we both really enjoyed ourselves. The staff were wonderful - very attentive without being overbearing, friendly and professional. The food was lovely but the portions sizes were small, I would have expected a bit for for the price.
Excellent veggie, vegan and gluten free options with an entire vegetarian menu.
Overall a good experience and I would definitely return.

We were a party of 5 out for a catch up lunch. I choose Kitch primarily because of the vegetarian options. Two of the party had the Mushroom Risotto and it was well received by both diners. A further two opted for the tempura battered hake and chips. The batter was light and crispy and the hake was perfectly cooked. The final choice was the BLT which was rated highly also.

Will definitely be back to try the flatbread which looked absolutely delicious.

Went here before a show & chose from the pre-theatre menu. Absolutely fantastic food, I can't remember the last time I had such a tasty meal. Fabulous staff & owner came out to chat to us for a few minutes. If only I lived in Belfast! However I will certainly be back next time I'm in town. Highly recommended.

Fabulous food, tasty, well cooked and a limited but great selection. Decent wine list that just needs enhancing with some top notch Spanish and Italian reds, Rioja, Ribera, Amarone and Barolo. Only surprise and slight disappointment is the interior appearance which is a bit cafe..ish
