Where the Chefs Eat: Belfast

Who knows where better to eat than a chef? Daniel Courtney, head chef and restaurateur at Stix & Stones reveals his 5 best places to eat in Belfast...

The Muddlers Club

I absolutely love the atmosphere here. The menu is well planned and uses fresh local produce. They serve really nice drinks, and there’s really cool music, too.

Miel et Moi

A little French-style café bar with amazing pastries, fantastic breakfasts and great coffee. Magnifique!

I love the rustic feel at Fratelli, and think it’s a great Italian addition to the city. The menu is tapas-style, which adds a sharing element to the experience.

Howard St

This well established restaurant in Belfast is a firm favourite. The reason? Seasonal produce which makes for some unusual menu options.
