“Busy vibrant restaurant”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We visited this restaurant after reading several reviews. It was a humming busy little bar and restaurant with a selection of tapas, pizza and food to share. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was good and there was quite a selection but we found nothing outstanding. Unfortunately this restaurant was noisey and crowded, but knowing they did not take reservations I should have expected this. The nature of Ombra and its humming ambiency was a 'good' fit in Cuba Street.

“Pretty good but expect a wait...”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Nice little Venetian restaurant tucked away on Cuba St.. We went on Valentines, very busy and had a table after an hr or so. Nice that there is bar while you wait.
Food was pretty decent except the fish mix which we didn't enjoy. However the gnocchi was amazing and the lamb too!

All in all Reasonably priced and good food just order a lot as we left a bit hungry (we had 5 plates + desert). Would go back.

Sat at the bar, shared several little dishes and cocktails.
The polenta chips and baby octopus were our favourites.
