I celebrated my birthday here at the weekend and the service was brilliant. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. They spent plenty of time explaining and talking us through the menus despite how busy it was on the night. The food was amazing and portion advice was spot on. I will definitely be returning at the next opportunity 👸🏼🎈 Thanks for looking after us so well Ojo Rojo xxx

Absolutely love the food here - as I’m gluten free it’s rare that I can go out and eat almost everything on the menu and it all taste so good! One of my favourite places to eat!

The service was good, the staff was polite, friendly and approachable. However, when I actually needed them I had to go to the bar because they were there chatting to each other. I know the restaurant was almost empty, but I think they should pay a bit more attention to what's happening in the restaurant. In terms of food, I was disappointed with some things: - the rabbit was very dry and had a burnt taste - the tortilla chips that came with the dip were almost crushed, many pieces were the size of a fingernail. How am I supposed to eat those?! - the dessert (the churros batter in waffle shape) was too sweet and you definitely can't eat it with a spoon. I had to ask for a knife and fork. The ceviche was nice and the Korean pork was very nice too. I also liked the selection of drinks of cocktails and the fact that you can have some unique drinks that you can't find anywhere else. Another thing, have a look through the menus as some of them can become really gross. My drink menu had some sticky sauce between some pages with a dead fly stuck to it.

The Pork Belly Tacos are the best thing on the menu and the sweet fillings do a great job at complimenting the salty pork. Although the Rojo Nachos look expensive on the menu, you get a huge portion and the salsa is very tasty. The sweet potato fries are really good too but the chipotle mayo can be a bit too spicy, however, a bottle of Pacifico helps to cool your mouth down! I think it may be better to serve the sweet potato fries with the mayo on the side as they have a lovely woody flavour on their own and the mayo can be a bit overpowering. The service here is always quick and the whole tapas concept is a really good accompaniment to the bar atmosphere. The upcycling and sustainability principles create a nicely decorated restaurant with a lovely cozy vibe. It's great to have such a nice independent restaurant like this in Bournemouth and we will be returning again in the future!

Classic margaritas were fab. The frozen strawberry was very disappointing. Was also very disappointed in the music choices. What kind of Latin /Mexican place doesn’t play Mexican on cinch de majo. It was supposed to be a fun celebration and just ended up boring like every other place in town. Food was just ok. But only had tapas. Flies were annoying on the upstairs level. Overall disappointing.

To be honest it wasn’t the best experience I had wanted for my birthday with a party of 9. I came here in March and had a great meal. So I booked for my birthday yesterday. We were brought a bottle of wine which had already been opened! The waiter did change it when we mentioned it! My son had a hair in his meal! After receiving the bill we had been charged for 11 tasting menus when there were only 9 of us! My friend took the bill to be checked and we witnessed a member of your staff mimicking him when he turned his back. I did mention it to one of your waiting staff who gave us a 10% discount. However the whole experience was not good and I felt embarrassed recommending your restaurant to my friends. The best part of our evening was your DJ! The music was amazing and we actually stayed longer than we had anticipated.

We had a work night out for some colleagues who had travelled over from Hong Kong and Mumbai. Conscious that we were accommodating for many different dietary tastes and requirements, the guys at Ojo Rojo echoed what we needed! Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, food was great and we all had a great night. Thank you!

Third visit and the food was even better (if possible) the waiter was great, friendly, informative and general a nice guy. Main issue was that the place seemed under staffed, needed at least one more waiter. Also, slightly quieter music as often had to raise our voices to hear each other.

I cannot say enough amazing things about this place! Really awesome vegan options, a cosy, rustic vibe with rad music and staff that aim to please and make you feel at home. Dinner was so good that I went back the very next day for lunch and I couldn't resist another 'Chase into the night' cocktail, so innovative! I will definitely be back :D
