Academy Restaurant


Academy is now open! We are delighted to announce that our doors are now open, and we can't wait to welcome you into our brand-new space.

Overlooking St Anne's Cathedral on York Street, Belfast, Academy is a haven in the city centre where you can enjoy truly memorable dining experiences. Locally sourced, seasonal ingredients are crafted into beautiful dishes, packed full of flavour.

Soon, a comprehensive drinks menu will accompany our food, and the restaurant will be open six days; for now though, we are operating with reduced hours and a 'bring your own bottle' policy. Our sommelier can offer advice on selecting and bringing along drinks of your choice that will complement the Academy menu.

We can't wait to see you.

This was my third visit and chosen for a special lunch and it did not disappoint.

Top notch!

Had a lovely lunch at The Academy today with my husband. Food and service were excellent.

Christmas lunch in style

Very good quality food…and exceptional surroundings in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter.
