Very pleasant and enjoyable, though small this restaurant functions very well, and the fact that it is busy speaks volumes. Staff very pleasant and chatty, sandwiches fresh with tasty fillings, and delicious scones, served with butter,jam and fresh cream. Most enjoyable. My only criticism, would be finding Speirs Wharf, very badly signposted. Come on Glasgow you can do better.

I've gone to Ocho Cafe for years and some of the reviews on here are downright pathetic. People moaning that not every single item is homemade. Most of these people are paying £5 per head, yet expect homemade bread, a dozen freshly baked cakes, pots of tea or a coffee, a huge selection of sandwiches and whatever wake meets their... More

Awful waitress grumpy & argumentative poor customer service not worth the money. No idea how to manage vouchers accused us of trying to do her. Such a shame as lovely venue though small.

Worst Afternoon Tea experience ever. The staff totally confused our booking and accused us of having already used our voucher which we hadn't. The tea was one coffee, six small triangle sandwiched and a scone each. There was no effort to impress in range or quality. Disappointinting experience.

We went at lunchtime. There were only two staff there, the chef and the waitress. Seeing only a few others sitting in, we asked for a table (all were reserved but when we explained to the waitress that we would not have much time and could not be there long, she let us have a table). We ordered what we... More

After a 35 mile canal walk we were pleased to see people go into the bar/restaurant, we got there and were grumpily advised they were closed. Welcome to Glasgow, not.

My friend and I visited on Saturday afternoon. The atmosphere there was nice, nearly all tables taken. We had afternoon tea. It was looking not very well.. The sandwiches were quite dry (too little fillings), the muffins, slice of madeira and ginger cake were looking really cheap. The only thing that tasted lovely were the warm scones with cream. The...

I don't often write reviews unless I've had a bad experience but here is the exception. My friend and I had afternoon tea at Ocho and it genuinely is a hidden gem. Great sandwiches, lovely scones and tea served by Eleanor with great chat and good humour. Looking forward to a speedy return, especially in summer when it will be... More
