    Service was terrible, food was out before our drinks, waiting staff forgot drinks multiple time, charged our drinks 3 times over so our bill was over £200!! Went for bottomless brunch with 2 friends, food was okay but small portions had to go out and get more food after. Staff were on phones a lot and seemed a bit clueless, had others come in for drinks but they ended up leaving as after 10 mins of ordering drinks the bar staff hadn’t even began making them and was standing there doing nothing.

    We booked a table for drinks and it was ready on arrival. The vibe was excellent, music was vibrant and the atmosphere was cool! Our waiter brought drinks to our table all evening. We didn't need to go to the bar. The menu had everything from beer, wines, to cocktails. The waiter was so friendly and attentive. Very enjoyable evening from start to finish. I would thoroughly recommend.

    Overall very disappointed with our visit. We came to Margot based on multiple recommendations, however when we visited, the atmosphere and the food was poor. The chips we got were undercooked and tasted like frozen oven chips, the chicken wings were bland, the prawn and chorizo dish was unseasoned and was not served with the oil as described on the menu and the patatas bravas were soggy. I had the candyfloss cocktail which tasted vinegary, as though the ingredients were off. The food came out extremely quickly, as though it had been pre made and microwaved. The atmosphere was awful, we were the only people there and there was loud music blaring over a speaker which made it hard to hold a conversation. We had booked this meal to celebrate my birthday and were thoroughly disappointed.

    It's a convenient spot where you can find privacy in the hustle bustle of city life. It is rather dark. I think they can increase lighting slightly. Food is goos. Number of staff was very few when we were there for week day lunch.

    We visited last night and whilst we found out waitressing staff to be super friendly and helpful we were disappointed with the quality of the food. The padron peppers were dreadful.. no salt or olive oil, and the sharing platter lacked imagination or taste. Plenty of olives but nothing that felt generous or super tasty. We did have a delicious bottle of wine and again, the staff were attentive and welcoming.

    Quite dark inside, so we had to use the torches on our phones to read the menus, but the food was good but not great. We felt it was poor value for the money asked.

    Absolute hidden gem in Belfast. Randomly chose this place for our anniversary dinner and would definitely be back. The atmosphere and ambience was so good and the music was pumping with old 90's tunes which was right up our street! The food was tapas style sharing plates and was delicious and the cocktails was amazing! Will definitely be back!

    Duck was perfectly cooked as was the cod. Chicken Kiev was a bit dry. Starters fine but scallops were slightly over cooked but the dish as a whole was very tasty. Nice ambience and lovely time catching up with friends. Staff are more than attentive. Service very good.
