First Review by CiaraSlevin

super relaxed - Edit

Robinsons Bar has a range of sections including:

~ Fibber Magee's a traditional Irish music bar
~ a pool loft
~ a standard saloon bar
~ a karaoke bar called BT1
~ a bistro restaurant

I always think there are three types of bars, those you love and delight in visiting, those which are good but you often forget about or just pop into on the way elsewhere and those you dislike and stay out of completely. For me Robinsons is the second type. It's actually pretty good, a really nice bar overall, which I don't visit that often, but enjoy when I do.

A word of warning, this bar can be a bit strange in terms of clientele. Each time I've visited for drinks the crowd has been vastly different from the time before. On occasion I have seen extremely rowdy and drunk patrons in Robinsons and at other times the crowd has been lovely. So the bar can be a bit hit or miss. Nonetheless service from bar staff has always been good and drink standard in terms of selection and price.

The Bistro is the main reason I visit Robinsons and although it's nothing fancy it has a lovely relaxed vibe, super comfortable sofa-style seating and views over Great Victoria Street if you manage to obtain a table beside the windows.

Food is hearty and delicious plus there are a range of menus on offer including a large, dedicated Vegetarian and Vegan menu. It's a superb menu offering 9 starter options, 8 mains and 8 sides which is exceptionally outstanding for Belfast. In particular I would recommend the main dishes of coconut curry, fajitas or red onion, cranberry and brie tart.

The cocktails are tasty too and make for a nice dessert, plus service from staff is pleasant and wine good. An excellent bistro for lunch or dinner, especially before or after a show at The Grand Opera House as they also offer a reasonably priced Pre Theatre menu.
