Dear Pegmosaic Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your evening at Otto's. Upstairs is generally calmer than downstairs although many people associate upstairs only with large groups. It is very important to us to make everyone feel welcome and I'm pleased that you felt comfortable on Saturday. Apologies for the underdone potatoes. Had we known we would... More

The food was absolutely amazing but that wasn't even the best bit. My partner has food allergies so I'd emailed ahead as it suggested on the website but we weren't expecting the level of service we received. At least 2 members of staff came over and made us aware they knew of his allergies and offered menu suggestions. The owner... More

Visited as a group of 6 on a Friday evening, and had a great time. The place was full and buzzing, and we had fantastic friendly service all night.

Dear Mark_Helen_8 Thank you for your comments. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Otto's. Bringing wine is a very popular option at Otto's. We do charge corkage to cover our costs. For those who want full bar service we offer that as well. Best of both worlds, we think. I look forward to seeing you again soon at Otto's... More

Was very excited to try Otto's for the first time ,despite having been in Sheffield for a year. Definitely lived up to expectations. The staff paid attention to detail. Our tagines were very tasty, the pudding equally so. Would definitely recommend a visit. Lively busy atmosphere and we had the piano playing, great evening out. Plus BYOB!

First visit, but definitely not the last! A friendly warm environment, we tried the 'Taste of Morocco' menu which was a great introduction to the food and excellent value.

Visited here tonight (5th August 2015). The staff were really friendly and polite, couldn't fault the service at all.

This is a sister restaurant of the Mediterranean on the same road. This one specialises in Moroccan dishes as well as fish. Like its sister place, you can't fault the food and shares the same friendly staff to look after you. Well worth a visit.

Dear RicardoC C Thank you for your review and kind comments. They are very much appreciated. Just to clarify. Otto is no longer a director of The Mediterranean. Former partners continue to operate the business. He left in June 2014 to focus fully on Otto's. I look forward to seeing you again soon at Otto's Restaurant Regards Theresa @ Otto's More

Having been here numerous times, the owners Theresa and Otto always give a warm friendly welcome. Olives, tomato on bread and nibbles to start with whilst we wait for our table. It is always packed at a weekend, so book in advance. You can take you own wine or beer for a very small corkage fee, which helps with the... More

We went here after looking at reviews on trip advisor, without a reservation. We received a friendly greeting, and after a discussion between staff we were shown to a very small table, we were a party of three so thought no worries we will cope. Service and food were first class, but this was spoilt by the cramped seating arrangements,... More
