No complaints whatsoever. I had one of the specials, the aubergine parmegiana which came with garlic bread and rocket salad. It was fantastic - the flavours were gorgeous and the sauce was lovely and rich. Please, please can you put this on the permanent menu so that it doesn't disappear?

My husband and I visited the Ocho lounge a few weeks ago for the first time in a while and we were pleasantly surprised- the staff are great and really add to the atmosphere and the food is brilliant! We have made our visits a weekly occurrence!

After a failed attempt to get breakfast at the awful Pier 64 we headed to Ocho, where we've had good and bad experiences over the last few years. This time was awesome - chirpy friendly service, a varied menu, tasty hangover food and a top quality Bloody Mary to match. Keep it up lads, see you next Sunday

First visit to Ocho lounge tonight and will definately be back. The food was lovely and the staff incredibly helpful. V impressed they have a gluten free menu too. Just a shame we got there so late so couldn't stay longer.

Always want to support local independent restaurants and this was my first visit here. My husband had been before and thought the burgers excellent. The visit didn't start well as I ordered a cocktail that the waitress said she didn't know how to mix-so we had to wait for 20 minutes for my drink! Though not expecting expert mixologists a... More

WOW!!!! Now that WAS a brekkie in the Ocho this morning. Today is Saturday, I may not need to eat until Monday. I had a coffee and breakfast consisting of bacon, beans, hash browns, eggs, tomato and toast and it was fantastic. That said, there are so many great places to eat in Penarth, who needs to go anywhere else!

We visited last night with a visitor who always loves going to Ocho when he visits. Its also one of our favourite places in Penarth. Everything we ordered was delicious apart from my husbands Hero burger which he ordered medium rare. When it arrived he was disappointed to see that it was well done - no pink inside at all.... More
