OX Belfast: Antrim

In March 2013 two long standing friends, each passionate about their craft, each with a desire to bring something new to the Belfast restaurant scene combined forces and opened OX overlooking the River Lagan.

Belfast-born Stephen and Brittany native Alain met in Paris. Working in various influential and inspirational restaurants they have honed their skills, developed their talents and percolated ideas to put into practice against the backdrop of their own relaxed riverside restaurant.

With experience gained in the Michelin starred kitchens of Paris including the 3-star Taillevent, and an enthusiastic and unique approach to seasonal produce, chef owner Stephen uses imagination and creativity to help bring fresh ingredients to life on your plate. Too long have vegetables played the part of a mere garnish; OX guarantees menus which feature top quality meat and sustainably sourced fish, while also giving careful attention to seasonal vegetables and fruit.

OX is committed to developing close relationships with local suppliers, menus are designed around the best available seasonal produce. As a result, each dish leaving the kitchen is thoughtfully designed so every element on the plate has an integral role in showcasing the best quality produce.

Alain uses his extensive experience as sommelier and restaurant manager, gained through years in leading Michelin restaurants in Paris and Ireland including the renowned L’Arpège and Mirazur, to develop a diverse drinks selection and carefully compiled wine list featuring local microbreweries and exciting wine makers.

Designed to ensure that OX drinks selection offers the perfect accompaniment to your dish by the glass or bottle. Alain also leads the front of house team to deliver a top class yet relaxed dining experience.

The riverside setting offers an excellent backdrop to this Oscar & Oscar designed 40 seat restaurant, while an intimate mezzanine area provides for more secluded dining. With their fine dining heritage Stephen and Alain aim to provide the same quality of food and attentive service, but in a more relaxed, simple environment. Letting their creative side shine through in the menus and using their skill and expertise to highlight the best of local and seasonal produce.

"Great Meal" Went here for my anniversary and must say everything from the decor, taster menu, wine pairing, local gins and service were what you would expect from a Michelin Star restaurant. Well recommended.

"Amazing!" We had the tasting menu with the wine paring. It was amazing from start to finish. The service was very good and each course was some of the best food we have tasted along with some very nice wines. Loved the fact that the restaurant was relaxed as hated stuffy pretentious places. Would definitely eat here again.

"Wonderful experience" Ox is a fantastic experience if you’re a food lover! We did tasting menu at dinner, paired with wine. Exceptional flavours and superb presentation. Staff are attentive and friendly without being overbearing. They were also able to work around some dietary requirements which was appreciated greatly. It’s a pricey dinner but for the quality you get, absolutely worth it!

"Best meal of our trip!" Everything was perfect at Ox! Amazing food and service. Every dish was beautifully executed and the wine pairing was beautifully complimentary. The ambiance was great as well as it is not to stuffy nor casual. We will definitely come back whenever we are in Belfast again!

"Fabulous lunch" Just had an excellent lunch at ox. 3 course meal for £28 was excellent value. Starter of rose veal then main of lamb with a black garlic jus that was so delicious I’m going to pester the chef by email until I get the recipe. Lovely matching wines to go with starter and main course. Desert was a delicious rhubarb and ginger concoction-(no wine with this as I wanted to walk out.) Service was warm and friendly and food truly outstanding. Next time I visit Belfast I’ll be sure to come back!
