lovely wee place

Was at this restaurant last night with friends and the service was second to none. The food was fantastic and portion size was great.

We enjoyed our experience very much and would be back again in future.

This is our second very enjoyable and satisfying night in The Point

I had purchased a groupon voucher to use at The Point Bar, but unfortunately was ill and unable to use it. I rang and spoke to the manager to see if they could stand over the amount, his attitude was totally unsympathetic, a resounding no, so much for customer service.

We have just been to The Point using a Groupon voucher. The meal was a "platter for two" which cost us �£18 but was meant to be to a value of more than double that. We were so disappointed with the inferior amount and quality of the food. No one would ever want to return to The Point were that their only experience of it, and I am deeply saddened that a voucher idea should have been used to provide such a sub-standard meal. Thankfully, we have been to the Point before and know how good the food can be, but this was very disappointing indeed.

Great bar on all fronts. However would like them to sell Carlsberg. It is also a tad expensive for the area- but all in all good spot.

This bar has four things going for it- good staff, good food, good settings and above all great beer- actually five things its spotless- basically an all rounder!! downside nothing really- but thinking I'd say the bar stools are uncomfortable after an hour or so- rating overall 9/10

I have never been to the point before looks okay from the outside but the reviews dont say much for the place plus being on the newtownards road i dont think it helps

i have never been to the point for a meal or a few drinks but after reading the reviews on here especially about there being no disabled access i have to say i wil not be visiting the point as i am disabled and as far as i can see they are not equipped to deal with my needs eg a lift. if this place was built 8yrs ago then it should by law have disabled access. i had intended on word of mouth booking the point for my daughters 21st in august but sorry im going to have to look elsewhere if you have no facilities for the disabled

Been to the point for food at least 20 times and never had a bad meal, its pub food presented in a modern way. Staff are friendly. Only minor complaint would be the bar itself isnt great. Dark and not a great place to watch football.

Submitted by Mark on 25th February 2009

this bar / restaurant has no, i repeat no disabled access to up stairs???!!!is this not illegal, and when i asked about it, i was given the excuse that it was built 8 years ago and thats why??how is this good enough, should be taken futher.basically crap and inexcusable and i am keeping my language clean here!!!!!!

total sh*tho*e. the staff are so rude and the food is appalling. the wine is overpriced as is the food.

so many better places to go in belfast

Was off to a bad start when I asked if I could have the battered fish with salad. I was told by the waiter that this was not possible. My husband can boil an egg tops and even he could rustle up a salad - what was the problem? Instead opted for the butternut squash which tasted like it had spent the weekend convalescing in a plastic lunchbox. The lettuce leaf on which the squash sat was unappetisingly brown at the edges.

Overall food hit and miss. Top tip for the waiter - Try to get out more often. Newtownards Road is not Covent Garden however hard you might want it to be.

Very disappointed with the attitude of the staff at The Point. I realise the food may well be good but food should be good in any pub.

Visitied The Point to watch an important match which they were advertising (Champions League Quarter Final football). Had to ask three times to get the volume turned up and they would not turn it to an audible level all evening. And it was clear that most people there, were there to watch the game on the many screens they have displayed around the pub.

A childish attitude by the staff - as soon as the game was over - it was straight on with the karaoke - as loud as the speakers could handle.

Disappointing place.

I have been there so many times and am never disappointed. I have never had a bad meal there yet. I hope their level of service continues, the staff are welcoming, polite and friendly.

Submitted by Elvisfan on 22nd March 2006

Food is excellent and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend it, well worth a visit.

Submitted by Sean Armstrong on 16th March 2006

Always excellent service and excellent food. Very nice surroundings. Have been using this restaurant from it opened. Only downfall now I feel is the children's menu portions have decreased in size dramatically.
