Fabulous wee cafe/ restaurant

My daughter and I visited Ocho restaurant as part of a spa deal yesterday and found it to be first class. Although small there was a really nice atmosphere in the place and we were made to feel very welcome. We had a lovely meal and in fact could not finish it all as the portion sizes were really... read more

My mother and I visited Ocho for some afternoon tea after a massage. Such a perfect afternoon. The food was fresh and so delicious and Eleanor made us feel so at home. A really good location looking over the canal - you really don't feel like you're in a busy city.

We booked a luxury spa day with Ocho Spa which included a three course meal and a glass of champagne at the Ocho Cafe. The spa treatments were great, we came away feeling relaxed and smelling of aromatherapy oils. We then went next door to continue our birthday celebration and enjoy our meal, as we opened the door we were... More

We had the misfortune to book a day spa at ocho soa next door to this cafe and it was a big mistake. We had a great time at the spa and imagined a nice healthy lunch with the glass of bubbly that was part of the package but I am afraid we were really disappionted. This greasy spoon cafe... More

I've just gone through some of the negative reviews, I'm always interested in others experiences. This was my second visit and popped in as we were nearby. We got a friendly welcome from the woman who runs the place. We mentioned we had been before so she offered us the afternoon tea at the voucher price. She asked what we... More

We had a livingsocial deal, easy to organise and book a table. Arrived and given an option of what kind of sandwiches we would like. Lovely little selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones with cream and jam!! Eleanor the owner was lovely. Great wee selection for what we paid, and will definitely be back!

We have been to Ocho on the Canal many times. It is a beautiful wee cafe hidden away from the bustle of Glasgow City. We hadn't been to Ocho for a while and decided to visit yesterday. As always, we were received a warm welcome from Eleanor who runs the cafe. We ordered a couple of drinks and our starter... More

Two of us went here as part of the mini spa day at Ocho Spa next door. We had a lovely massage to relax and unwind but the lunch let the whole day down leaving us feeling hungry and very annoyed. It was a set menu which was very limited and quite a poor choice. First of all there was... More
