One of the most popular destinations for the locals of Falls Road, Belfast is Failte, a real, Irish-style restaurant that serves up warm, hearty meals at reasonable prices. Failte is owned by Niall McGinn, a Scottish Premier League player for Aberdeen. This alone is enough to pique the attention of locals and visitors, but while it might be enough to draw the crowds, the food is more than enough to keep them coming back for more.
This place is usually buzzing with locals throughout the week, but it is especially busy on days when the restaurant offers some of its specials. Diners will want to be aware that booking a table is usually a good idea when visiting this establishment, and that waiting times could increase with the influx of the crowds. This is usually not a problem with diners, but it could be with those who are on a tighter schedule.
The restaurant specializes in beef, so diners should not miss out on giving this dish of choice a try. One of the best things about ordering a steaming plate of Irish cuisine from Failte is that the portions are quite large, and have a sort of a rustic charm. Most of the food is simple, but tasty, which means that diners can expect to walk away satisfied that they have spent their money well.
Although there are specials running throughout the week, Steak Tuesdays are exciting because diners can get their hands on a Sirloin, complete with chips and mushrooms, for only £9.95. This special runs between 16:00 and 21:00. The restaurant also boasts a variety of set menus where diners can pick from a one, two or three course meal for between £7.95 and £11.95.
Those who are looking to enjoy the great food without leaving the comfort of their own homes can call for delivery – Failte delivers within a 3 mile radius for only £1.50.
When a diner chooses to visit Failte, they will get the chance to rub shoulders with the locals and to dine as they do. The restaurant now boasts a branch on Castle street in Belfast.
