We had a most enjoyable lunch. The food was beyond excellent and the service friendly and welcoming. Our party was 11 including children so not always easy to accommodate everyone but you managed it!

We had an outstanding experience from booking to getting the Taxi home. Staff are very friendly helpful and knowledgeable. We had the taster menu with wine flight. The chief is creating some fantastic dishes of food.The relaxed and informal atmosphere only add to a great dinning experience. This is Michelin star food at none Michelin star prices. Will be back to enjoy this fine dinning experience again very soon.

What a wonderful, friendly place. It was so relaxed and the staff were so lovely. We dined with my 7 year old daughter and they accommodated her brilliantly. What I would say was the best thing about it was there was no snobbery around the place, which we have found at other Michelin star restaurants. Thank you for a lovely experience

Birthday meal did not disappoint. The service from everyone was absolutely wonderful. The food was also extremely good, we will definitely be coming back. The only point to raise was that as the plates were very straight my husband's gravy flowed down the plate and almost off onto his knee, he turned the plate round but it kept doing the same thing, he had to continue to rotate the plate. He didn't want to make a fuss and asked for us not to say anything at the time.

We really enjoyed our meal. It was relaxed and a perfect way to experience Michelin star food without paying a fortune or having to have a tasting menu. We will be back.

My husband and his three friends ate Ona birthday weekend. They loved the place and called the pudding a religious experience. All the food was amazing and they were still talking about the courses days later. It lives upto it’s high reputation.

Delicious food, fabulous ingredients, great combinations and honest cooking. Tomato consume was gorgeous with deep flavours and love the the little cheese gnocchi that came with it.Turbot was cooked perfectly but the dashi sauce was a bit oversalted. Dessert and cheese was amazingly well done. Do yourself a favour and get a serve of the thrice cooked chip, best chips I've had! Service was ok without being fantastic with a few little touches that could've been improved like shared plates and cutlery placing.
