The Spaniard

88 reviews The Spaniard

Just noticed that most of the adverse reviews are around 10 years old. So on the basis that things may well have improved, will be giving it a go for old times sake. We can always leave. (or be told to as some of the reviewers have!)

The Spaniard

88 reviews The Spaniard

I worked in Belfast for over 4 years and loved the Spaniard and it's great atmosphere. 10 years on we're returning to Belfast this weekend for a "nostalgia" trip. I had planned to visit the Spaniard as an old haunt, but having read the reviews, I've decided it's a risk not worth taking.

Cutters Wharf

47 reviews Cutters Wharf

Very disappointed with our recent visit, service was awful waitress ask what you would like to order and continue walking away at the same time before you’ve finished speaking absolutely no customer care. Excess wait time on drink and food orders and when food did arrive it was cold obviously sitting before being bought to the table. Food sat on the table not asked would you like anything else when I ask if sauce it sure came across as a task.
