Named by National Geographic Traveller in Nov 2012 as one of its ‘Best of the World Must-See Places for 2012’, the City of Belfast was described as "a capital that is redefining itself in the eyes of the world". And quite rightly so. The oft maligned city may have seen bad days but it has risen like a phoenix and redefined itself as a place of entertainment, adventure and hospitality. It now stands as a paragon of British culture... from the award winning Belfast Waterfront to the magnificent Victorian Botanic Gardens, the vibrant nightlife to the international shopping opportunities it stands head and shoulders above its old reputation. Belfast Harbour's leisure craft facility is situated at the head of Belfast Lough in Abercorn only a 10 minute walk of the City centre and was built to host the Belfast Tall Ships Festival in August 2009. There are 240m of pontoons and the Basin has been dredged to a depth of 4m.The marina can handle vessels up to 35m LOA, maximum draught of 4.0m. Titanic Belfast is an absolute 'must see'. The iconic, six-floor building is located right next the docks where she was built. It houses a breathtaking, often moving, audio-visual encyclopaedia of the legendary vessel from her conception to her tragic destruction and beyond. Since completion in 1997, Belfast Waterfront has welcomed over 5 million visitors and staged more than 3,000 entertainment events, cementing the city’s reputation as one of the world’s top destinations for national and international performers.
During its long history Belfast has hosted shows by Van Morrison, The Waterboys, Snow Patrol, Kenneth Branagh, Colin Bateman, The Undertones, The Clash, Simon Callow, The Stereophonics, Peter O’Toole, The Human League, Frank Carson, Dolly Parton, Daniel O.Donnel, Tom Jones, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, The Monkees, Boney M and C.S. Lewis to name a fair few. Dining out in the city is second to none with menus available from the nearest to the furthest afield. And, as you would expect from Ireland’s premier city, the nightlife is top-notch. Whatever you want from a city break – fine food, history, mystery, enlightenment, culture, entertainment, quiet family time or a mad and crazy experience that will last a lifetime, Belfast has it all and gives it to you with a big warm Irish kiss! One thing is absolute... You will not be bored!

Belfast has certainly changed since i was last here 4 years ago.
Found your guide to be very helpful and did not have enough time to try all the restaurants , but the restaurants in St Annes Square were great.
This seems to be the in place.

Out and about last week,decided to give Salt Bistro a go.Very relaxing and had mussels from Dundrum followed by the duck.
St Anne's Square is the new place to eat when visiting Belfast.
Food was delicious, but to avoid disappointment i suggest calling ahead .

Very relaxing atmosphere for such a big place.
Had fish cakes to start and the steak as a main.Would go back again for sure.

Ate at Safa last week,really enjoyed it.Proper Indian Food just like you would get in England.
Most Indian restaurants in Northern Ireland do not put any effort into cooking their food because they know it is not at the top of the Irish food chain, and they can get away with it.
I am pleased to say this one does put all the effort in, and this is evident in the food i ate.

Yes Shey, our man in the field will be visiting this fabulous city early December, and hopes to be there for about three weeks to compile a great guide for the city.
look out for him his name is Paul Smith and he will be visiting businesses in and around Belfast.
Businesses out there will get a call from his right hand man Andy Sproul to make appointments for him to do a quick demonstration on how we can give Belfast businesses exposure to mariners visiting the city.

THE POTTED HEN BISTRO by Bev, Phil, Tom and Andrea
This place is absolutely fantastic, just what Belfast and the Cathedral area needed. Went a bit stagnant last time I visited but there seems to be a lot going on around here now, trends come and go but this seems to be THE PLACE at the moment.
Forgot to mention food was delicious, and even if you have to wait a while there is ample room in the bar/lounge area to relax and have a drink whilst contemplating about what to eat off the menu.
