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.
Excellent as always - never disappoints
Great food and location. Friendly atmosphere.
Food is amazing simply amazing. Unfortunately for us the service wasnt!
Excellent restaurant,just love everything about this little place .Everything we ordered on the menu was authentic and tasted great, just fantastic. Great friendly staff . Highly recommend.
Food was okay, not the best tapas I have had, not the worst. Service was reasonable, very informal, didn't offer to take our coats etc. Restaurant was quiet, but off season. We went based on Tripadvisor reviews and were left a bit disappointed. Some of the items we wanted had run out. Calamari was nice, and the pork was amazing! Goats cheese balls were nice, although small and three on a sharing plate (would have felt better if there were four as we were out as a couple, seems odd to have tapas in an odd number). The Japanese fries were essentially chips and gravy. Cheesecake brownie was lovely, although very heavy. All in all okay. Shame as we were out for a big birthday and wanted to be blown away.
Ocho offers a wide range of interesting, lovely food which only ever seems to improve. We enjoy eating there and frequently treat our visitors to the experience. They’ve never been disappointed. In fact, we’ve yet to find better tapas in Spain!!
Had a great meal, good service and value for money
Had an absolutely beautiful meal on sat night. Early bird was great value for money. I will be back for the Spanish Meatball alone!!
Thoroughly enjoyable. Food is delicious and the wine perfect. Staff pleasant and attentive. Highly recommend.
Our favourite restaurant, never disappoints
Simply the best Tapas and presentation - lovely atmosphere too, we’ve visited a few times now preferring Ocho to some other dining choices in Portrush. The Sangria could be a little more robust as it tasted more like a sugary cordial.
Wonderful meal and great atmosphere and service
Don’t stop doin whatcha do!
Really loved it- have already recommended it
Another excellent evening at Ocho, thanks to Joel for getting us into a taxi 🚕
We enjoyed an excellent meal, the tapas flavours were all so tasty, and the evening was enhanced by the friendly and helpful staff.
Excellent food. Just what we would eat in Spain.
Very tasty meal - a different, more special offering than the other local restaurants.
Group booking of 11 persons all of whom had the set meal. Very dissapointed with what we had for basically £20 per head, especially the first course with 4 plates to share between all of us. Ive eaten tapas many times in Valencia and Malaga so i have had prior experience.
Excellent tapas meal!
An authentic Tapas Bar with a warm welcome and excellent food
Great restaurant booked at the last minute for a party of 7.Having dined all weekend in the Ramore complex Ocho was a breath of fresh air.From the start the staff were relaxed and welcoming. The tapas were rich and varied. The fudge vodka shots were a lovely finishing touch to wish my husband a happy brthday. Thank you we will be back.
Party of two, had a fantastic dinner, great service and the food was delicious. Would recommend to anyone looking a traditional taps themed evening.
Early bird menu is excellent value for money, do try it !
Really lovely evening delicious food and drinks we all thoroughly enjoyed the night. Staff were really helpful and friendly.... Dealt with a rude customer at another table incredibly well and politely!!!
