Informal and good service.

My first visit to an Ocho Lounge. Went in on impulse. Pleasant, informal atmosphere. Friendly service. Was pleased to see lots of youngsters using the cafe. Food looked really good and simple. I had a coffee, which was fine thanks. Will visit again for a snack no doubt when in the town.

I have eaten here many times before and always enjoyed it . On this occasion though , the dish I had tasted as though it was burnt . Almost as though it had caught on the bottom of the pan. It was pretty inedible and I left almost all of it because of that. The most disappointing part though was... More

Had our usual - breakfast muffin and lounge eggs with salmon. Cooked ok but service and quality of food just about ok. Tends to be full of people with young babies/kids who whinge and scream all the time. Why?

This was the first time I've visited since a disappointing experience a few years ago and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was relaxed, the bartender was very friendly and happy to sweeten my espresso martini to my taste which was great. The food was delicious and there was even something on the menu that my extremely diet restricted fiancé could... More

Not a place I would regularly visit as I'm not so keen on the rustic feel of the place. Food was ok. No table service.

Called in here for breakfast on a wet Wednesday, ordered the Chorizo hash at just under £6.00. Miniscule cubes of chorizo in a bland tomato sauce, a few chopped mushrooms ( probably 1 ) hard fried potatoes ( probably 2 ) topped with a fried egg which was burn at the edges. Extremely poor on value, cooking ability and presentation.... More
