Buba is an exciting restaurant, bringing the tastes and rich cultural mix of the Eastern Mediterranean.

Buba is owned by husband and wife team, Tony and Andrea O'Neill, who also own and operate the Italian inspired restaurant/cichetti bar Coppi, a magnet for Belfast foodies, also in Saint Anne's Square.

Buba is a fun and vibrant open-plan eatery serving modern day Eastern Mediterranean-inspired food and cocktails. The menu is comprised of lots of small plate dishes, designed to share with half the menu dedicated to our Vegan friends! They'll give you a sample of all of the rich culinary traditions, exotic produce, flavoursome spices and cooking techniques this region is known for.

Think nibbles of baba ganoush and harissa salsa and almonds, bites of halloumi fries with chilli jam and house sauce, flatbreads of BBQ chicken, chilli hummus, chermoula and yoghurt and munchies of baked garlic prawns, za'atar and coriander. Not forgetting sides of Persian style potato hash, pomegranate, mint and yoghurt and of course sweets including rum buba, goslings syrup and vanilla cream. Vegans will be delighted with thirteen tasty dishes, not including sides and sweets, dedicated to them.

Executive Chef, Jonny Philips and Head Chef, Gerard Doran, have been working on these dishes, plus lots more, perfecting every delectable mouthful. Matching such robust flavours with drinks to blow your socks off was the job of manger, Paul McGuigan, who has devised a fun and interesting cocktail list including the house cocktail, When I Grow Up, is a perfectly blended mix of poitin, benedictine, green chartreuse, fresh passion fruit, lemon. vanilla and cinnamon; definitely not for the faint-hearted!

Keep an eye out on social media to keep up to date with competitions, special offers, events and other fun stuff. The team at Buba looks forward to welcoming you!

  • Inside Buba

    The design of Buba was a collaboration between the owners and Orla Maguire of Oscar & Oscar. A warm, vibrant colour palate of burnt orange, teal and copper sets the tone. Seating is a mix of comfortable and plush banquette seating around the perimeter with large central tables perfect for getting to know your dining companions that little bit better. You can even dine right in front of the kitchen on high fixed stools, the perfect seat to watch the chefs at work, and play!

    Heating, music and lighting is extremely important to set the scene for the perfect dining experience, and this has been well thought of with funky playlists and even funkier lighting with the centre piece of twenty multi coloured origami paper lanterns giving the interior that wow factor.
