5 stars for everything. Great food in not too expensive or large portions so you can try a lot of dishes. A lot of the menu is gluten free giving more choice than the majority of restaurants who only seem to worry about the veggies. Enthusiastic and efficient staff help provide a great experience.

The food was perfect. The drinks were very well made as we ordered cocktails and the staff were very knowledgable on everything that was on the menu. This was the best dining experience I’ve had! Thank you Ojo Rojo!

I visited Ojo Rojo over the August bank holiday weekend with my boyfriend after receiving a recommendation from a friend of a friend. When we walked in we were very happy we had decided to eat here, the atmosphere and setting is really welcoming and cool. The lighting was especially nice. The place was super busy, always a good sign, and there were some people waiting for tables to become available. I had made a reservation so we only needed to wait to be seated, this didn't take long. We had read the menu online before arriving and decided that the best way to get a taste of a good amount of dishes was to go with one of the set menus on offer. The set menus are each designed for 2 people sharing and come in 3 different "sizes", let's say. We went for the biggest set menu "The Big Appetite", which is really good value at £36. We were forewarned it was for the hungry, but we wanted to try as many dishes as we could. This set menu offered 2 types of tacos, chicken wings, dressed nachos, trio of dips, patatas rojos and sweet potato fries. My criticism of the food (3 stars) comes from the fact we were served all of the carbs before getting to taste any of the real 'draw in' foods. Nachos, patatas, dips (with more nachos) & sweet potato fries all arrived to our table a good 10 minutes before any of the meats/tacos. By the time the wings came, we could only eat 3 and were full and we still hadn't attempted the pièce de résistance, the tacos. The last plate tacos came very late after the first dish of nachos had been served. We couldn't eat them. This is not a big complaint, just a suggestion to the restaurant to change the way the menu is served so that customers can really enjoy the best part, instead of filling up on chips/carbs beforehand. And it is a warning to future customers that the big appetite set menu can definitely fill 3-4 bellies but this makes it really great value food! The wine was delicious and our server on the night was excellent. I would like to come back and order better.

Felt the service wasn’t quite up to standard with everything else. They forgot our drinks and took a while to take our order. We were also seated without any menus and had to ask for them after waiting for a while. Having said that the food is great and caters to vegans really well as non-vegans! The vegan nachos are amazing, and the vegan chuffle dessert actually made my friends and I stop our conversations so we could enjoy it!

Great food, we dined early so not much atmosphere, but that’s understandable. We will return, great idea with the 10% offer on the receipt.

Food was awesome, dinner for 2 with wine under £80 is really good. Service could be better. The atmosphere definitely could do with improving, old wooden chairs are uncomfortable and don't make for a cosy environment to spend more time than we had to. Left early, could have stayed longer drinking and desserts if it was more comfortable.

The manager/greeter who seated us spent a lot of time taking us through the menu and explaining about the food - this felt very personal and was useful to know, we very much appreciated it!
