The Belfast restaurant scene keeps getting better, from local restaurants for a fry up to celebrity chefs, Belfast restaurants hit the spot. A great first choice to try is Speranza. Set on the Golden Mile, Speranza is an old favorite with the people of Belfast since 1983. Indeed Speranza was one of the pioneers, bringing new tastes to what was once a culinary-challenged city. It has been refurbished, to three times its original size, and serves good Italian fare -- pasta dishes, salads and pizzas. Not far behind is Shanks Restaurant. Shanks, located on the grounds of the prestigious Blackwood Golf Course, has won the Michelin star for five consecutive years, only one of two Northern Ireland restaurants to do so (the other is Deane's Brasserie). The chefs at Shanks have also been awarded three AA rosettes. Michelin star-winning chef Michael Deane presides over the stove at Deane's Brasserie, a sleek modern restaurant. Deane's cooking is modern and sublime, a hip pairing of Asian ingredients with classic French methods. Whether you're craving some good old fish and chips or red mullet in crisp couscous, you'll have your fill at these Belfast restaurants.
