Deane's Deli Bistro and Vin Cafe, Belfast

We went to Belfast for a night recently and stayed in the lovely and affordable Park Inn on Clarence Street West. I was delighted to see that Deanes Deli was located near the hote on Bedford Streetl. Michael Deane holds the sole Michelin star in Northern Ireland for his flagship restaurant Deanes, but it's always nice to eat in a more relaxed setting.

After a stroll around City Hall, we returned to Bedford Street and grabbed a table just before last orders in the Deli. I chose the local aged ribeye steak (£18) served with fries and a herb butter, while he chose the Deli Beef Burger with JalapeƱo rarebit, fresh guacamole, oven dried tomato and French fries (£11).

The interior of the restaurant is wooden panelled painted an olive green and bottles of wine line the shelves. At nighttime the lighting is dim and very relaxing. Our food was delicious - both the steak and the burger had real beefy flavours and I just loved the herb butter and jalapeno rarebit on the burger. I can't remember the total cost, but I think that 3 glasses of wine and our two mains bought the bill to somewhere in the region of £44.
