Set in the former banking hall of the Ulster Bank head office, the Great Room is a jaw-dropping extravaganza of gilded stucco, red plush, white marble cherubs and a vast crystal chandelier glittering beneath a glass dome. The menu matches the decor: decadent but delicious, a French-influenced catalogue of political incorrectness laced with foie gras and truffles. A set three-course dinner menu (£27) is available from 6.30pm to 10pm Monday to Thursday (£23 from 5.30 to 6.30pm).
A muted décor in shades of slate blue, white and dark grey, with polished wood floors and white linen, puts the food squarely centre stage in this sophisticated and smoothly run restaurant. Part of the Paul Rankin stable, Roscoff takes inspiration from Irish produce and French cuisine, with dishes such as carpaccio (very thin slices of raw meat) of venison with celeriac remoulade, and pot roast turbot with mussels and tarragon cream.
There's a two-/three-course lunch menu for around £16/around £20, and a three-course dinner menu for £25 (Monday to Thursday only).
