Little & Quirky with excellent food

A nice little quirky and friendly Tapas bar, The menu is small but something for everyone. The service and drink selection was very good. A good mixture of age ranges use the Ocho lounge will diffidently come again.

I went for breakfast with my boyfriend here last Sunday morning, he ordered the lounge breakfast and I ordered the chorizo hash and had questioned the waitress about the mushrooms in the hash, I was told there weren't many of them, because of this I decided I'd pick them out and order it. When it arrived I was greeted with... More

My parner and I were attending a charity function Penarth on a recent Friday evening and needed to find somewhere to grab a quick meal and a coffee beforehand. As we are regular users of the Fino Lounge in Whitchurch we thought that we'd give this sister establishment a try. The Ocho Lounge is quite a lot smaller than the... More

I travel over 60 miles each way just to come here. The atmosphere is great, the decor is fabulous and the staff are lovely. Forgot to mention the food which is just wonderful. The have veggie and vegan options, and do soya lattes that can't be beaten anywhere. I had the tapas today, and my mum had the soup and... More

Everything about the place screams decay. God knows what has happened to the scrap yard decor. But it matches the food. My son was delivered food he didn't order, it was replaced, and my wrap was a disaster. Over six pounds for a load of shredded carrot drowning four tiny pieces of meat. A replacement was offered but took an... More

Ocho lounge is a small quirky cafe in the centre of Penarth. The staff are friendly and helpful. It's not a huge menu but everyone should find something they like. I usually have a salad or tapas and my husband has the lounge burger. Families are very welcome.

We are indeed a quirky place with quirky staff and i'm glad you liked!!! The menu was been designed to not be overwhelming, we do a large selection of different food types, did you however know that we have a complete seperate vegan / veggie and then a gluten free menu too. So we are trying to cater for everyone,... More

Perfect place for brunch on a Sunday, or any other day for that matter. The team there are all lovely, chatty and made to feel welcome from the moment we walked in. There was a 30minute wait on food, but we weren't in any rush and they told us before we ordered (communication is always great!) the pancakes were, as... More

No...thankyou for that review!!! Its made our day! I'm very happy when people leave happy too....and a bigger thankyou for understanding on the wait, we try to always inform customers of any waits on food and always try to get food out, at most even of busy times, within 30mins......off for some brunch now myself so see you again soon!!

Olde Worlde, it looked like the original Victorian fittings to me. Good coffee and cake and the sandwiches going out looked nice. Good service. The toilets are upstairs and there are steps up to the counter so probably not so good for anyone with mobility issues.

Thankyou for your review firstly, and we love the decor too. The mobility issue you raised....we have access from the back of the building via the beer garden where full access to the bar, toilets and seating areas for anyone with such mobility problems, most people dont know the beer garden is there, its our little secret garden but we...
