It's not licenced but you can take your own for a corkage charge (£1.50 for a bottle of wine or 4 beers). It's cash only but the food is great - hearty and tasty - and cheap. It was packed out too which is also a good sign. It's speciality is milkshakes and they were massive, I didn't have one... More

We go here from uni for lunch and are never disappointed, however you do get what you pay off! The food is very reasonably priced but can be a little greasy, however that is easily avoided by going for one of the healthier options such as baked potato (which I really enjoy) what puts me off and it can't really...

We were recommended to visit Maggie Mays (the Botanic Avenue one) by our taxi driver. Our hotel was just up the road and we ended up coming here 3 times. The menu is huge so there is definitely something to everyone. They let my partner tailor his order (he's on a fitness diet so won't eat certain things). We went... More

Having read glowing reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to have breakfast in Maggie Mays. Never again! On arrival we weren't even sure if the place was open. When inside we ordered a tea and coffee. The tea arrived stone cold and had to be taken back - 'someone had turned the machine off and the water was cold.' I... More

As this is in a student area it is great value for money. It is in the middle price range but the quality of food and portion size is great. The chips are phenomenal and the size of the menu is great as there is always plenty to choose from- you will never be stuck. The staff are very attentive... More

I visited yesterday for the first time with my 2 kids & my Sister who lives local. The food was fantastic, generous portions. The milkshakes were the best I've had. The service was good & the restaurant clean. I have paid a lot more for a much worse experience in other restaurants. The next time I visit Belfast I will... More
