My wife and I were greeted warmly on arrival and asked if we had booked. We hadn't but they found us a table "in the front". As we were the only people in this part of the restaurant we benefited from a personal service from the guy on he front desk. Food was high quality and served promptly and efficiently.... More

Thought we would try this place on a recommendation of a work colleague What a surprise it turned out to be. The food was excellent and plenty of it. We both felt a bit guilty for leaving so much of our mains but after the size of the starters it wasn't really a surprise. The only minor complaint was the... More

There is no doubt this restaurant has a certain magic feel to it , that tricks your mind that you are in another country. The food was a good standard and the service was a little slow but very waiters/ waitresses are polite. The seating area was a little cramped, but this added to the good atmosphere. One bad point...

Have visited over the years but have chosen over the past 5 weeks to visit twice and as usual, O'Picado never fails. Greeted by friendly staff and shown out to back part of the restaurant which gives you the feel of being away on your holidays. Was a little cramped in the seating however did not put me off what...

As soon as you enter this resturant you might as well be in a a resturant abroad; in a little taverna. Lovely atmosphere. Very helpful and welcoming staff.food excellent. Very tasty and good value for money .Have to say eaten in most resturant s in southend, this has to to be one of the best. You must try it out.

I have been a regular customer of this beautifully unique restaurant for a couple of years now and I cannot fault anything about it. The food is delicious and I can honestly say I have had the most enjoyable meals here more than anywhere else in Essex. The staff are always welcoming and the whole atmosphere of the place makes...
