The chef and business owner behind eatery Howard Street has opened Ora Restaurant on Great Victoria Street in Belfast after a £170,000 investment.

Marty Murphy received support from First Trust Bank to open the 46-seat tapas restaurant, which has created four jobs.

Options range from cold small plates to sharing steaks.

Ora, the Mauri word for 'life', aims to offer guests a "unique" dining experience with a menu influenced by global favours and food concepts, according to Mr Murphy.

"Ora was born from my love of the food experiences I encountered on my travels from Vietnam and South Africa, to Amsterdam and New Zealand," he added.

"I wanted to create an entirely new eating concept for Belfast, so the menu is packed with carefully created flavour profiles."
