Delicious Food in a Good Location

The menu has a very good selection, even for an annoyingly fussy eater like myself. The taste and presentation were great. It was very busy, but the staff managed quite well and ensured everyone was looked after. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed - perfect after a long, stressful week. We never... read more

A group of 6 of us went for a birthday meal on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy but the staff were very attentive and found time to talk us through menu options. The garlic king prawns were out of this world! the Moroccan lager was great - would recommend you try it. The chilli chicken from the specials... More

Slightly unusual Valentines as we went with friends, but nonetheless it was superb, great Moroccan food, plenty of choice on the menu with interesting and unusual dishes too. The staff were great and Otto came out and spent a bit of time with us, great host, funny and genuine guy!

Went here for New Year's Eve so it may not be a fair representation of what you might get. The food was mediocre and the guy playing the piano was trying to drown out the conversation which meant that people talked even louder. In the end I was tired of straining to have a conversation and glad when midnight came.

Dear Doctormacc Thank you for your comments. Oh dear, I'm sorry we couldn't provide a quiet atmosphere for your meal on New Year's Eve. Your request would have been at odds with many others that night who were looking for some atmosphere and booked specifically because we had a pianist playing. Complaints that he "drown out the conversation" are rare,... More

On a recent visit to the Peak District I went looking for an Italian restaurant I had heard of. Having eventually found a parking space in a dimly lit side street I happened to pass Otto's; I had a quick look at the menu outside and since it seemed to be busy I decided to give it a go. We... More

My partner and I visited Otto's for the first time on Valentine's night. First, the booking process. My partner called to book a table. The ground floor of this restaurant is fully licenced, but the first floor is not - meaning you can only take your own wine or beer to the first floor and can't buy any alcohol up... More

I went to Ottos with a party of 25. The food seemed to take forever to arrive even though we had pre ordered. It was far too noisy and you could not have a decent conversation. The gentleman I felt seemed unhappy verging on rude he shouted a lot. The food when it arrived was nice and plentiful but will... More

Dear Karendavidbeth Thank you for your comments. It came as no surprise to us to find that someone from your party had left a negative review. We discussed the events of Saturday evening after service. We listen to our staff before, during and after service every day. They are an experienced bunch and have dealt with many parties successfully. It's... More
