Great experience

Good lunch, not big portions but certainly enough. The atmosphere is nice and the service is good. I found the dining room a bit noisy though although the tables are not close to each other at all. The price/quality ratio is excellent. So yes, I will go here again...

I mentioned my wife´s special needs whilst booking the table. No problem there whatsoever. Our refusal of alcohol or non-alcoholic drinks was also not an issue, as wehad initially declined there was not another word from anybody in this regard. I also had ordered the tasting menu, and that was served without further ado. The pace of food arriving and... More

I was here for a business lunch. The food is more of an exhibition. Portions are small. They use extensively molecular chemistry. For the amount the place is really expensive. But interesting mixture of flavours!

Good quality, nice atmosphere, excellent selection of wines. Extremely small quantities. Too small. The restaurant is well located, service is very good, but overrated in my opinion.

Surprise menu,the amount of dishes you can choose and wines (or not) to go with every dish. Several extras incl amuse bouche to start with and some chef's greetings along the way. The whole dinner takes easily hours but is well worth it. The service is impeccable.

We celebrate my birthday days before and decided to go to Olo. And it was perfect choise! Service was fast, friendly and attend to their job. Very professional sommelier, who told nice stories of wines. Waiters raised up your serviettes from the floor if it was fallen down. Food was amazing. We had around 20 different dishes but portions sizes... More

Fantastic food and good service. The place is not too big so the athmosphere is very warm. The place is in downtown and easy to go by foot.

Excellent experience. Food is not only delicious but as well sophisticated: in the way they mix ingredient and present the dishes. All the favors melt in you mouth making dining here a real experience. Waiters are super polite and very careful on your needs. Very good selection of wines and pairing with the menu.

We were four person and had the tasting menu with drinks. Food was ok but the service was pretty rude. Definitely not worth of the price.

I went last week for a lunch in Olo. 4 course lunch for 42 EUR where you see nice small plates one after each other. It was very good but maybe a bit small portions. No juice pairing proposed (at least not for lunch)
