“Eating out in Belfast”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 21 September 2015


We eat out regularly in Belfast and have tried a variety of restaurants. Temple restaurant is quite simple one of the best places to dine out in Belfast. It has a homely atmosphere, casual dining with no fuss! Service is exceptional, incredibly friendly staff, very attentative but not in an over bearing way. The choice and range of food caters for all tastes, I had the roast silverside of beef with vegetables and gravy, which was excellent!


My wife had the chicken supreme with a smoked bacon and savoy cabbage parcel and bushmills cream sauce which was beautiful. If you are looking for a restaurant that ticks all the boxes, you simple must try Temple.

Looking forward to going back !!!!
