My boyfriend and I went here on our date night and compared to other Crown restaurants it is average. It has a relaxed vibe within the busy casino. The staff were friendly and prompt. The restaurant was clean and tidy with lovely decor. We went during the Cuban festivities and they had a cuban themed menu. I had the cuban... More

This time at this restaurant the service was good. It's not always so. At the moment, the restaurant feature Cuban style cuisine. We had the Paella, Cuban style and the Cuban style hamburger. they tasted good and the price is reasonable. Please be warned that if you like a dish here and you order it the next time might not...

My wife and I dined there Saturday night before a concert. They had on a brazilan specials menu which we both had items from. Both were both great quality and quantity. I would guess that other items would be cooked to a similar standard. Well worth a try if you are looking for a quick meal on the casino floor.... More

Renovations, decor and menu have done nothing to change the overall poor quality of the food and service at Margos. It might cater for mass production but that should not stop it going a little further to provide something better. Staff are still indifferent and food still nondescript.

We have been to Margo's on a number of occasions, but when we had dinner last night, we chose Scotch Fillet Steak, much to our eventual disappointment. The service was good, the time waiting for the meals to arrive was OK, but when the meal arrived the steak was disappointing to say the least. The steaks were as ordered, but... More

A meal at Margo's had been booked for our group and after reading many reviews here I was extremely wary and anticipating a negative experience. I was pleasanty suprised . Margo doesn't pretend to be an intimate, silver-service eatery. It caters to mass production and anyone who expects spectacular food is kidding themselves. I was with a group of 10... More

Paid for the drinks and left very hungry. Have the management even tasted the food??? The fishermans basket was so oily it was... More

Vegetables were basically raw, drinks took 15 minutes to get to the table after ordering. Were told there was garlic sauce available only to be served garlic butter and then told they don't do a garlic sauce. 4 couples but not advised they dont split the bill until we went to pay. Staff were extremely rude, would not assist with... More
