I had heard from friends about MM's and their legendary fry! The fry was great - make sure you ask for the bacon well done! Staff are friendly enough, although we were in there during the week and it was quieter than i expect a weekend may be. Staff didn't offer us any sauces and as we were sat outside... More

Had a lovely time at Maggie's. Had the fajita's with garlic chips and they were amazing. The drinks are a bit over priced and the Malone location is quite cramped but if you want something intimate and nice without booking it's great. Can be left waiting a while for the food but it's cooked from fresh and it's good. Will... More

I always come to Maggie Mays when I am in Belfast, and I've yet to be disappointed! The staff are always friendly and attentive, and the food is good quality for the money!

Good selection on the menu. Portions are large and it's cheap to eat here. Price reflects the quality of the food. It is very popular and I would eat here again.

Doesn't even deserve one star. Took my little brothers in for milkshakes & was given the dirtiest look when asked could they be heated up. Also the staff spoke to my little brother with the rudest tone of voice! It was the botanic Maggie Mays also. Will not be back.

Amazing milkshakes but normal Ulster Fry. A good option if you are in the zone and you dont want to spend too much. Service is poor.

Great cafe for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Fab menu, reasonable prices and portions are huge! Plenty of Belfast faves! Staff are helpful and friendly though it is a busy cafe so can sometimes be a bit of a wait but nothing out of ordinary. My husband and I love visiting here - you def wont leave hungry!
