A Northern Ireland restaurant has cooked up a storm to win a top all-Ireland award.
Noble, in Holywood, won the 'Best Local Award' in the all-new Food and Wine competition announced in Dublin yesterday.
Another Belfast eatery was announced the best on the island - for brunch.
Hadskis made it into the UK foodies' Bible The Waitrose Good Food Guide two years ago, but its particularly take on breakfast and lunch now adds a prestigious all-Ireland award.
Also listed in yesterday's awards was the Catalina Restaurant at the Lough Erne resort in Fermanagh.
A relatively new restaurant in Holywood, Noble was cited as a restaurant which "represents all that is wonderful about a quality and personal restaurant experience at your doorstep".
It was reviewed some weeks ago by UK-renowned food critic Jay Rayner, who wrote: "Saul McConnell... runs front of house at Noble as if it's his living room.
"Everything they're doing here really is noble."
Alain Kerl'och, owner of top Belfast restaurant, The Ox, was named Host Of The Year.
In the Republic, big winners yesterday included Kai in Galway; The Lady Helen Restaurant, Co Kilkenny; Renvyle House, Galway and Klaw in Dublin.
Food and Wine magazine editor Miriam Atkins said: "Ireland is celebrating a food revolution at the moment - in every corner of the country both fine dining and casual restaurants are championing high quality ingredients and offering beautifully thought out and creative menus.
"Also, our wine and drinks offering has really come on in leaps and bounds in recent years.
"We also wanted to shine a light this year on the local food heroes - the pubs, cafes and neighbourhood eateries that mirror the magazine through thoughtful and quality sourcing."
Commenting on the menu presented on the day, Miriam added: "We decided to switch things up this year and ditch the traditional, formal set-up. Instead we encouraged 'family-style' dining with shared platters of seafood, charcuterie and vegetables, each celebrating some of the country's best food producers."
Gordon Thompson from sponsors Nespresso Business Solutions said: "These awards shine a light on the culinary innovators."
