Michelin Starred Michael Deane

8 – 12 March 2016

Revolutionizing the eating out scene in Belfast, Michael has a reputation for offering meticulously prepared Irish food based on great classic cooking.

In 2003 Michael was named top chef in the UK by the Craft Guild of Chefs.  In 2010 Michael had held the Star for 14 consecutive years making him the longest running star holder ever in Northern Ireland. 

Among its many accolades, DEANES boasts the prestigious titles of Ireland’s Restaurant of the Year from Georgina Campbell Guide Awards, Best Service 2009 bestowed by The Food and Wine Magazine and Best Restaurant in Northern Ireland from the National Restaurant Awards 2009.  In 2010 DEANES was named Best Ulster Restaurant by Ireland Food and Wine and on the same year Michael was honoured with admission to the Hall of Fame.

Michaels inimitable style and enduring commitment to excellence has placed him at the top of his game where he firmly remains and he alone can be credited for placing Belfast firmly on the international culinary map.

According to Michael, "From my earliest days I wanted to set a  standard for the best quality and the best value eating out experience possible. Over the years I have come to learn that it is the customers not the critics, who decide if you are a success and that is very humbling. Thankfully our dedication to sourcing the best local produce and demanding the highest standards of cooking and presentation continues to please customers at home, as well as those visiting from abroad, and that is the only secret to our success."
