“Intimate atmosphere for a great evening meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I've been here a few times now, usually for lunches but most recently for an evening meal. The atmosphere is even better in the evening. The small tables arranged closely together create an intimate atmosphere that is somewhat lost during the day. The food, as usual, was absolutely superb. Potted beef and toast for a start was a delight. The portion sizes were perfect - I felt nicely full. It is pricey though.

“A lovely night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

My wife and I went for a meal together on a Saturday night and we were both pleased to find that chef/owner Ali has maintained his high standards. The food was extremely good particularly my sea bass - cripy skin and delicious. The panna cotta pudding was perhaps a little too dense but service was quick and efficient and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

“Quality food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

At first sight this establishment at the end of Peebles High street may appear to be yet another coffee shop/tea room but it is actually much more. We visited on a Saturday in early January for lunch and were very impressed with the overall experience. Friendly and efficient service from the young staff and wow, the food was quality itself. The main meals seem to take the form of "specials" which are regularly varied and priced reasonably. We have also been for coffee and cake, snacks etc. and found it to be equally pleasant. Nice to see a place that can cater for someone looking for breakfast or dinner and everything in between.

Beautifully cooked local produce - have never written a restaurant review before but this was so good I felt I had to let others know.

“OSSO Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Very nice place, intimate, good food and very friendly service. It was a very cold night and we were seated at the window, which was a little chilly despite the heater, but otherwise a good experience. The chatty waitress kept us well entertained and was very good at advising on food and drink options.
