This place is fab! The ambience is spot on, the service is attentive, the whole feel is great and I always love it when I'm there. Just two tiny little things that let the place down is, the bathroom is pretty grim and needs expanding and the menu needs revised, I'm not a fish lover, I wish I was because some of it sounds amazing, but maybe add a few more chicken or beef dishes to it, and it would be perfect.
Still a great place and I'll always be back, maybe for just drinks though!

Great spot, intimate and cool.

Food was lovely and non-alcoholic cocktails were too.

The noise kicked up a notch mid way through our lunch and it was quite hard to hear each other plus I think a few extra tea lights on the tables nearest door would be beneficial for reading menu.

Other than that will be back soon!

I went last night with my partner for our first date night in Belfast since becoming pregnant. Staff done a amazing job at making the mocktail versions of my favourite cocktails and the staff were amazing, food was delicious. Music was good a bit loud for me but that’s just the vibe of the bar. Thanks again will definitely be back 😊

Fantastic food & atmosphere - love Margot! Was gutted we had to leave due to the table having a time limit on it, that was quite disappointing as there was lots of tables around that were free

We had a few small plates to start - the beef cheek and prawn and chorozo was delicious.
The Mezze plate was very tasty that we shared for our main.
Atmosphere and lighting was nice and it was fairly busy for a Tuesday.
The cocktails were very nice and the service was very good.

Would definitely recommend and will return again.

It was lovely, great atmosphere, I think the only thing I would say is that and hour and a half for 2 people never seems like long enough time to have the table. But staff were very good and always asked if we needed another drink. No complaints! X

One of our favourite places in Belfast. Staff are always very welcoming and accommodating - even found us another table at the end of our "booking slot" so that we could have a couple of extra drinks :-)

I would just like more smiles, chats and natural ease from some of the feminine young staff (probably lack of experience), but really overall very satisfied indeed and everybody was lovely

Unexpectedly a very good evening in Margot. Service was pleasant yet professional - thank you Miriam.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our two course meal paired with an excellent bottle of Sancerre.
We will certainly be back.

From previous experience I’ve really enjoyed Margot. The food and service very good. This time was extremely different…

We arrived at 8 to get seated and were given just drinks menus. 30 minutes later we had to ask for food menus. The waitress asked what we would like. We responded with to start and named two small plates and then named two main courses. She didn’t record this on any paper and walked off.

Twenty minutes later the food arrived all four dishes consisting of a beef cheek and squid starters alongside a steak, burger and chips. We immediately said we order the beef cheek and squid as a starter to be told “what do you want me to do? “ We asked for the main courses to be taken away so we could enjoy the starter.

A few mouthfuls in the waitress approached again with a menu and said “look it says small plate not starter” I explained I had been here the week previous and the small plates were served as starters and then the main courses following. To be told “well it’s not my fault you should have said”. At this stage we were fed up and we asked to speak to the manager.

The manager was apologetic although said the girl thought we wanted it all together because there was only two small plates and one main course. We had to correct her that infact we ordered two main courses also.

We were told she was new and the youngest member of staff. I fully understand this and would be very supportive of new staff members however the attitude we were shown was not acceptable.

When given the receipt we were given the full bill with no apology. I will be following this up with the restaurant itself. Very disappointing visit!
