Was very busy when we arrived so took a while to find someone to show us to our table. Nobody brought us any menus so found some ourselves and had to grab someone to ask to order. Was a very enjoyable evening though... great food, wine and live music and once we were served the staff were very friendly and attentive. Just initial welcome could be improved.

Usually a great night out but unfortunately, the waited for an extra salad we had ordered, asked the waiter where it as and he said ‘oh yeah, you ordered that didn’t you bit I forgot to put it through’ and walked away! No offer to get it, no apology! Once our plates were cleared, we waited for a while for pudding, noticed the kitchen was packing up and had to ask for our pudding. Again, the waiter said ‘I didn’t put it through so you can have it take away’ which we declined to do. This seemed like an inconvenience. And finally the waiter asked ‘are any of you driving’ to which we replied yes and his reply was ‘shame, I would have offered you a free shot of tequila’ We expressed our disappointment at his mistakes which has affected the enjoyment of our evening and reluctantly agreed to take one drink off the bill. Terrible service!

I really liked the various dishes coming out as and when they're ready, it meant that we were never waiting too long and had lots of new things to look forward to trying! The downstairs area did seem to have a bit more of an atmosphere than upstairs and was away from the kitchen, but we were possibly put upstairs as it was quieter and we had a baby with us. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and were lovely with our baby - she seemed to like the attention as well! Would love to revisit next time we're in Bournemouth.

The restaurant had great atmosphere/feel from the first moment. We were a group of 16 so opted to go for the set tasking menu for convince. This turned out to be a great decision, there was a seemingly endless flow of food and a huge variety of different dishes meaning we got to sample many more dishes that we would have been able to otherwise. The food was excellent,packed full of flavour and because we went for the tasting menu, as soon as we finished one course, the next would be brought out to and we were never waiting for food. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable and despite being busy, when asked took the time to talk us through the wide world of Mezcal and took us in detail through one of their tasting flights. I can't recommend the place enough and wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

Absolutely delicious food and a great atmosphere. I've been to Ojo Rojo many times now and their recent updated menu layout was a great idea. I really appreciate the menu catering to coeliacs and will come again soon!

Hi They atmosphere and service was great - no problems there. What attracted me to the restaurant was the claim that the menu was inspired by Mexican street food (which I loved when I lived in Mexico).Unfortunately the dishes I had (Chilaqiles and tacos) were nothing like those I enjoyed in Mexico. The taco sauce seemed to be mayonnaise and ketchup. The chilaquiles seemed to be a bean cassarole. This is NOTHING like the authentic ingredients. I'm including some more authentic recipes as a suggestion. I hate to criticize what is clearly a project that you believe in passionately, but I truly believe that you are able to do so much better. https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/chilaquiles-verdes-354951 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZJIzEeqAFw

Second time coming here and we were just as impressed as the 1st. All the staff are really friendly and helpful. The menu has a huge variety and it’s easy to sample a little of everything using the sharer menu. The food is absolutely amazing and the portions are a really decent size. Can’t wait to come back!

Fantastic, unique food in a great setting and atmosphere. Great choice for veggies too. Our only minor gripe was that the children’s portions were not great value compared to the adults menu (£3 for 7 small fries!)
