Midweek lunch

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.

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

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.

We were just about to wander in to a well known coffee chain when we stumbled across Ocha Lounge. Nice and quirky decor and chilled out atmosphere and character. Staff very warm and friendly throughout our visit. Coffee served very quickly and was very nice, jugs of complimentary iced water ready to go and help yourself. Food was superb and... More

I've never felt so un-welcome and forced to leave than at my visit to Ocho Lounge. On a visit to Penarth visiting some close friends for the weekend I was horrified to hear the 'lock up' call from the staff members. Being felt to leave before we had even finished half of our drinks was shameful. The clattering of the... More

I did some busking outside the Ocho today (15th April) and they were very friendly and even gave me some refreshment whilst I sang/played guitar. Will visit again to taste their food soon.

This is my go to breakfast place in Penarth. The interior has much of it's Victorian era structure intact. That and stressed wood tables provide a warm and cozy atmosphere. Food is ordered at the bar and then it is brought to your table which is numbered. Food is delicious and brought quickly. Service is friendly and attentive.

We are regular visitors to the Ocho Lounge and love it. The food is consistently good, the staff are always friendly and cheerful. The laid back atmosphere suits my partner and i perfectly and we regularly pop in for a quick meal and end up staying for a few hours. My only criticism would be that it is so popular... More

Great food and good ambience. Don't sit in the back of the restaurant if you can help it, it's normally where the parents with small children sit!!

Loved this review :-) Thankyou very much. Ocho is ultra kid friendly and we tend to find that yeah they sit in the back to play, hopefully you can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere out of the front or the beer garden. Glad you enjoy, see you again soon :-) More
