James Street South
James Street South Restaurant focuses on using the best of Northern Ireland produce, cooked using classic French cooking with modern techniques to produce delicate, well thought out dishes. Chef/Owner Niall McKenna and head chef Stephen Toman work together with their team compiling menus to showcase the excellent fare Northern Ireland has to offer on our set lunch, pre-theatre, á la carte and tasting menus.
In 2011 the team expanded by opening a casual dining restaurant The Bar + Grill at James Street South next to the main restaurant, offering an exciting, seasonal and local menu and a friendly and relaxed dining experience.
