About Ocho Tapas Bistro
Ocho Tapas Bistro is located on Main St. Portrush, where both Sean, front of house and Trudy, head chef, grew up. While living and working in Spain for many years and enjoying both the culture and food, it was Trudy's vision to create the perfect setting for a relaxed tapas experience. After her return to Northern Ireland in 2009, Trudy and her husband Sean decided to make this happen. Ocho Tapas Bistro opened in December 2013 offering Spanish Tapas with an Irish twist. At the heart of Ocho Tapas Bistro is a commitment to showcasing the very best of local food and drink.
Great food and service eill definitely be back
I heard so many great reviews about this place and was really looking forward to the meal. The service was great, very quick service and the staff were lovely but I was disappointed by the food - Was very ordinary and wasn’t blown away by most of the dishes we ordered. 6 dishes and maybe 2 were tasty, so my experience didn’t live up to the hype.
Have wanted to eat in Ocho for ages. I was not disappointed! Food was fantastic and service was excellent. I can’t wait to go again to be honest. I was with my husband and two teenage children, one of them is a bit fussy about trying new things. Everyone really enjoyed the meal, especially the paella.
Beautiful authentic Spanish food. So fresh and tasty and so much to choose from. Portions are generous Restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere playing Spanish music with attentive friendly staff. So nice to get something that little bit different in portrush. We will definitely be back again and again
This is a great wee addition to Portrush. The menu is varied with some really tasty dishes. The house Rioja is excellent (and good value). I have been twice over the Summer and look forward to returning in the near future...
As always we had a wonderful meal and great service. In the present circumstances I felt very safe. Staff wore visors and social distancing was in place. I can’t wait to return.
Best restaurant in Portrush. Food is divine. Amazing staff & service.
My reservation was disappointingly cancelled☹️
Really enjoyed it. Great feeling about the place, service and food excellent.
Absolutely delicious, as a vegetarian it’s the best meal out I’ve ever had....top marks! Will definitely be back soon
Brilliant food and atmosphere. Great evening, thanks Ocho!
Really lovely food, incredible value.
We were very excited to have our first meal out since the start of lockdown. However the restaurant was very full with tables close together. We were upstairs and could hear conversation of other diners and waiting staff went very close to our table. Service was very chaotic and haphazard. A very large table came in and then we could hardly hear each other speak. The food was excellent but we were unimpressed with lack of social distancing, service and noise in the restaurant.
Nice selection, lovely service.
Great food and very well priced
Very nice food
Excellent food and service Have already booked again
Great wee place and far better than any of Ramore restaurants. I can’t recommend it enough!
Food was excellent, just wish dishes had been spaced out and not all come at once
An absolutely beautiful meal at Ocho!
Great food and good service, have used in the past and will dine there again!!
5-star food - will definitely be back!
Excellent food, surroundings and staff. Can’t wait to go back
The food was absolutely delicious, the staff were very friendly and the service was excellent
