Have visited Ocho Lounge on about four occasions now and have always found the food to be really tasty. (Although our kids are disappointed at the disappearance of meatballs from the menu!) The staff have always been friendly and helpful and the choice of music really adds to the atmosphere. We'll be back and hopefully so will the meatballs.....

Often visit Ocho Lounge but standards seem to go down every time. Terrible atmosphere, awful service, and the food was bland. The service was slow and disorganized, very rude staff- presented quite 'scruffy'. The (boisterous) comments made towards each other and various customers are not appropriate, and tend to ruin the calming atmosphere. Will definitely not visit again.

First time we visited after living in the area for a year and all I can say is, it's a crime we haven't eaten here sooner! I ordered the Fish and Chips and wasn't sure at the portion size - the fish in itself was huge but I wasn't sure about the chips as it looked like there weren't that... More

I went to Ocho lounge for a light lunch today, I got the pulled pork panini, trying to be a little healthy, i asked for a little extra salad instead of fries, it was no trouble when I asked. Service was friendly and the food was tasty, what more could you ask for. I will be back for sure!

One of the most relaxed atmospheres I have come across. Small chairs dotted around different styles of wooden tables adds to the atmosphere of this little restaurant/wine bar. Small dishes to larger meals are available at a slightly higher price than others in the street, but don't let that put you off visiting for a coffee to experience this establishment.... More
