The six-course menu typically costs £28 per person, with the option to pay extra for paired wines.

Details of the restaurants first Belfast menu remain under wraps, but a press shot features an old copy of the Belfast News Letter, a pocket watch and a brass telescope suggesting Belfast foodie can expect to take their taste buds back in time.

Six By Nico opens its Waring Street venue on March 5.
