We ate here as a party of 8. The staff were very welcoming. They also had a man playing the piano that added to the atmosphere. You can take your own wine/ bottled beers (no cans allowed). You do pay a small corkage fee. For starter I picked from the specials board. A few of us picked the fish cake.... More

We have visited this restaurant before but haven't been for several months. The place was packed on a Saturday night but we managed to get a table at 9.30. The staff were as friendly as we had remembered and complimentary olives were waiting on the table. As it was late we opted to go straight to main course. Everything here... More

Dear Nigel154 Thank you for your review and positive comments. Saturday was, indeed, very busy. Apologies for your wait. Upstairs tables were available but downstairs is often fully booked as you well know. A lot of people like to listen to the pianist while they eat. We do like to feed people well at Otto's! Portions are quite large -... More

After driving for 5 hours to Sheffield, our visit to Otto's made it totally worthwhile: buzzing with a good atmosphere, helped by the piano player, and helpful service from all the staff. The food was excellent - lamb tagine, chicken with preserved lemons & cous cous, swordfish - all delicious. Now wouldn't want to eat anywhere else in Sheffield -... More

Great Moroccan food with a relatively impressive ambience given it's awkward location. Menu is interesting and food is reasonable, considering there isn't any other Moroccan place to done out in Sheffield, or is there ? I feel the decor is a little unfinished even though there's little added perks to the restaurant which makes it all the more different and... More

If you like great food, love different tastes and have a hankering to taste world cuisine then Ottos offers the Turkish menu to the residents of Sheffield. Just off hunters bar it's in the vicinity of many great pubs which are themselves worthy of a visit. Ottos allows you to bring your booze, it has a piano and often hosts... More

Dear JHRed Thank you for your positive comments. They are much appreciated. Just to avoid any confusion for readers of this review, our menu is mainly Moroccan rather than Turkish.
