Great food, great service. Owners ensure you are happy with everything, fine dining in a very relaxed atmosphere. Galliano bugs - absolutely delicious. Seafood so fresh and tasty.

“Great service, wonderful food, amazing staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

We recently visited as a group of ladies. The staff were attentive and helpful, the food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection and the whole dining experience was such that we booked for a return visit next year.

“Old favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

The Ox is a Redcliffe institution; but remains fresh and pleasing every time we visit. First started going to the Ox over 30 years ago and will return again. The only criticism I would make is that it lacks sufficient vegetarian options.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, we really appreciate it! Wow, you certainly are a loyal customer!! I'll pass on your feedback about the vegetarian options to our head chef Peter.

Thanks again and I'm so glad you're already planning another return visit.

“Pleasant venue great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

This was not the first time we had been to the Ox and I trust it won't be the last.
A group of us all enjoyed lunch.
Every meal was well presented and more importantly delicious.
The restaurant is well presented with beautifully set tables and excellent service to go with it all.
I would certainly recommend this restaurant based in my own experience for lunch. The menu is extensive and there were lunch specials.
