Sadly let down by the slowness of service. We waited 1 hour and 45 minutes for our main course which is just too long. Such a shame as lovely place andgoid food but they really need to sort out their service.

Wonderful service and food. Even though the restaurant was busy our lunch arrived quickly and even our extra order of chips that we asked for once we had our main course were delivered to our table within minutes. Would highly recommend.

Lovely friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We went with our 6 year old son and he really enjoyed himself. The staff were all friendly and although the table needed to be back by 8 pm we never felt rushed.

I come here regularly as the food is varied and interesting. The staff and cooking are great. It has the best atmosphere of any restaurant on the island and the bonus is that you can have a late lunch in the afternoon or even just a drink and a dessert.

Great lunch venue, dour evening experience....We have had a number of great lunches at Octopus in the past and thought would try dinner this weekend. The evening experience was nowhere near the usual excellent daytime standards with depressing live music and a gruff rude waiter who muscled in (after a nice friendly waitress was already helping us), pestered us then told us time was up and took away our drinks menu after a few minutes. Easily fixable but management need to know. All you need is a Spotify list of jazzy lounge music that takes away the silence and oppressive atmosphere. The live singer technically had a good voice but was really off putting in a restaurant and sang a number of similar sad minor key songs that killed the mood. It was not a good vibe to get people chatting or happy and there was almost no atmosphere. In 2019 its quite a tacky dated thing to have people singing whilst you eat. We sat by the window and there was some rolls of material left out on the patio which looked a mess. We left after about 20 minutes and went to Rosso instead which had a nice lively busy atmosphere, good music and people happily chatting. I love Octopus for lunch but dinner this weekend lost the plot.

Fantastic evening, a lovely location, relaxed atmosphere with good food and pleasant, efficient service. The set menu in particular is great value for money without compromising quality. Thank you.

The food is definitely not weathy any money, I ordered chicken wings and they came out burnt, my sister ordered the safe option Burger and she didn’t take more than 4 bits, the cocktail wasn’t great either. Bad experience and wouldn’t recommend anyone to go there.

We were a party of 20 booked for Christmas Eve at 1500. Most chose the Festive Menu, this offered plenty of interesting choices, service was most friendly and efficient and the dishes were superb. At £35 per person it was very good value and so refreshing to have a restaurant offering good food over the festivities without charging excessively, especially when many of us frequent customers, we felt rewarded for our loyalty over the year. In summary, it was so good our table is booked for next Christmas Eve. Only slight gripe is having to pay up front for all the festive menus, £500+ on my credit card then having to collect individually in cash/cheques from everyone, it would have been easier having a smaller deposit and then all to pay by credit card on the day.
