Absolutely superb restaurant- all food and drink was delicious, waiting staff exceptional- highly recommended!
We love this place - we eat here every time we're visiting Belfast! Great tapas selection to start, and the prawn linguine is amazing. There are tough times ahead so I really hope the Barking Dog pulls through...
Fantastic meal, as always! Hopefully see you in 4 weeks.
Food, service, & entire experience was 10/10 as always. My favourite place to dine.
Had a fantastic meal with my family for a birthday celebration. Staff were brilliant. definitely be back again
We really enjoyed the food which was a very high quality. The servers that we experienced both girls were excellent and very attentive. It is not a 5 star review as the background music was a bit on the loud side which wasn’t conducive to chatting. My other slight issue was that our table was next to a hatch at the till, the front door was at the other side of the opening both myself and my husband were cold and put our jackets on. Would still recommend this restaurant
Service was good, but nearly too quick which was the problem. As the steak wasn’t cooked properly, (very chewy) which I don’t expect with the price I was paying and the sticky toffee pudding was shocking, tasted poorly and the texture was the worst as if it was stale. Overall very poor experience and definitely not worth the money
Great job!! Food excellent, service excellent, COVID precautions and hygiene excellent. Well done!!
Great spot, nice Tapas selection for starters, good quality meat for mains, and nice selection of beer as well, will definitely be going back
Great food, especially for gluten free options. A tad pricier than a regular roast but well worth it!
Great food and nice waiters/service. Would highly recommend the beef shin burger!
The only reason it’s not 5 stars for all was that the French fries were not great. Having said that, the front of house staff handled it really well and we really enjoyed the whole experience. We will definitely be back!!
Loved this restaurant. The staff were so friendly. Loved the cosy atmosphere, delicious food and great ambience. Would definitely go back!
If you want to enjoy a burger this is the place to visit, recommended by a friend and would advise anyone to go when they are in Belfast
Great tapas and amazing service. Would recommend!
Roast beef 5 star along with steak tartare.
Chargrilled prawn special starter was 5 star along with duck special. Service excellent
Excellent food and wonderful service. Highly recommend!
Food exceptional. Service great. Slightly priced high end
Great spot, vegetarian/vegan menu available. Perfect for couples, friends and families.
First visit, delicious Sunday roast and we had the last of the evening so impressive to keep the quality all day long! Looking forward to trying out their tapas soon!
Great to be able to take my parents out for dinner! They had a great time, food was fantastic as always and great banter and service for all the staff!
Reception was pleasant. Gluten free menu already on table. Service good. Food excellent.
Will go back.
Brilliant staff, the food was one of the best meals I’ve had! Would recommend getting some tapas, the gnocchi or pan fried hake are excellent! Staff were so warm and friendly and happy to recommend food and drinks! Couldn’t fault the place, will definitely visit again if in Belfast!
Good meal and experience
Amazing service and lovely food. I would visit again!
A great local restaurant that serves excellent quality food as well as great cocktails.
The staff are all very friendly and helpful which makes for a fab combination.
Another perfect evening at one of my all time favourites
Excellent welcoming and prompt service. Standard menu looked a bit limited at first inspection (covid?) but more specials available. Food very tasty and good portion sizes all served with a smile. Strange colour choices of plates that did not always compliment the food!
Food was absolutely outstanding full of flavours and very fresh! Cocktails as usual amazing! We just keep coming back because u can’t go wrong with this place 👌🔥
Great place for lunch! Lovely menu with lots of choice. Nice staff and facilities
I didn’t know what to expect because I thought this was a cafe type place but it’s anything but. What amazing food! The Barking Dog is my new favourite restaurant, stylish and buzzing with a terrific atmosphere. I don’t think I’ve ever rated anywhere so high. All 7 of us raved about the food, my plaice was amazing and the taster spoonful of beef ravioli I had will bring me back for more...just wonderful. A big thanks to Beth for her great humour and recommendations and Adam for looking after us.
Note: The servers don’t wear masks as per Gov guidelines, but they do keep good social distancing. We poured our own wine etc.
Well worth a visit!
Food was excellent and staff were outsatnding. The only issue we had which we told front of house was the high noise levels because of no sound deadening. Apart from that it was a great night!!
Really great restaurant. Food was superb and beautifully cooked. The staff were excellent. Very attentive but not intrusive. So impressed, we bought a voucher for some family members to go and enjoy it as much as we did.
Fantastic food excellent staff and service never fails to impress
Good service, tasty food and an enjoyable dinner.
Food great. We had the tapas and the short rib bites are a must. Totally delicious. Pasta main delicious and espresso Creme Brûlée Devine.
Great cleaning and social distancing practice in place only thing I woul say we had a seat at the window and they had removed seats due to COVID-19 in that area and my husband thought that affected the ambiance. But overall a lovely meal
Food was delicious!
high standards throughout, superb food, helpful staff, great atmosphere. We always enjoy our nights out in The Barking Dog
Overall the food was great, well seasoned and well presented! Service was great too with good measures put in place to be socially distant. Can't wait to go back.
Fantastic place, great food so tasty and incredibly friendly, pleasant and attentive staff! A must visit!
