Excellent as always. Our favourite Oxford restaurant.
Superb service, food, ambience. Looking forward to the next visit.
Superb service made a fabulous day even better. Delicious risotto.
Lovely food, nice wine and great service. What's not to like...?
Food was very good and lunch deal is v good value. Service was slow though and it wasn’t busy. Waited 20 mins for coffee and no apology. Hope this was a blip as I would still recommend.
It was my husband’s 60th birthday. He liked his meal. My meal (salmon salad with horseradish sauce) was virtually inedible—way too salty, shouldn’t have been smoked so much and then heavily salted. And the horseradish sauce didn’t work well or complement the salmon—two overwhelming flavours (ultra salty and spicy) competing with each other was a lose-lose. Son liked his pizza. Service was incredibly slow and inattentive. We were there for 2 hours with just mains and desserts. My husband had a birthday candle in his shirt pocket from lunch, so when his dessert appeared without a candle, he lit it from the table candle and put it in the brownie so we could sing happy birthday. Meanwhile we saw other diners being fussed over and servers gathering to sing happy birthday. It was kind of depressing.
Branca is one of my favourite restaurants ever. The food is always excellent and the service is great. The menu is fantastic. I have always had the best food and the ambiance is amazing. Branca is the cutting edge of Walton St.
The prices are not cheap but you will not be disappointed, if you want to go on a little budget try the 2 courses which is on their website which includes a drink.
However...be warned ....you will be hooked and you will definitely return.
Thanks Branca......you are one of the best Restaurants in Oxfordshire.
Delicious food and nice service, accompanied by a very smooth malbec!
The special deal on early dining is fantastic! Easily worth £16 a head, with a free glass of house wine too. Great if you are on your way to the Phoenix to see a film, as we were. Service attentive but not obtrusive; we will be returning!
wonderful, fresh and interesting food, great drinks, hilarious bartender, good service, all good!
can't wait to be back in Oxford and return
Food was excellent!
Great service and great food. We have visited Branca quite a few times over the years and still keep coming back whenever we are in Oxford. We were not disappointed this time either. Many thanks for a great time.
Excellent food and excellent service. Would come back over and over again, plenty of choice and everything our table ate was outstanding.
Great meal, served at perfect pace.
Very attentive waiter, who was very engaging and good fun.
Attentive service sharpened appreciation for an interesting menu. Listening to the extensive list of specials against moderate volume background noise was a challenge. Why not bring a board to the table? But overall this is a distinctly good restaurant in a city not over-endowed with interesting but also accessible places to eat. We had a great time. Recommended!
We all loved Branca... our waiter Havi was outstanding, the food good and the atmosphere delightful! We will be visiting again soon.
We were in the garden which was quiet. We had two guests and they loved the food and ambience.
Always great food and fun . Fantastic staff always very helpful.we will be back Soon,
Very rude, drunk table in the room who spoilt dinner for everyone.
We love Branca , it has a wonderful ambience and stylish decor
The food was good quality the only disappointment was that our guest was refused garlic butter with his steak . I understand that food has to be prepared ahead but given the fairly high price of a steak I would suggest offering some flexibility
The service we have is always good , well done to the high working waiters . We appreciate your charm and banter even when under pressure
Very helpful staff who obtained a high chair quickly and service was smooth and pleasant. 2 year old served quickly and waitress took care with orders. Set meal good value and tasty
One of the best places in Oxford and definitely the best one in Jericho! Food is excellent. I particularly like the steaks. The foccacia is excellent and a lovely touch. The eldeflower presse is great if you don t feel like drinking alcohol. The venue is very spacious with a nice outside seating area for the summer. An extremely reliable place which never disappoints.
Love it here - great food, family friendly atmosphere, and we can bring our dog.
Previous visits to Branca have been really enjoyable. Unfortunately, on this occasion there was powercut so we didn’t get to experience much of Branca!
Whilst this is an unavoidable event, I did feel the staff didn’t cope particularly well with the event. Service and communication become limited and poor. In the end I had to enquire as to whether or not we could order and was informed that we could but there was no guarantee of food...?!
So we left.....
Always good value. The menu is quite small, though with an interesting range. Friendly service, with very prompt ciabatta chunks and olive oil. They also bother to do half-litre carafes of wine, which is very sensible. The blackboard specials this time were particularly good. My belly pork with lentils and lardons and romanescu sauce was really memorable.
Went early evening before going to the Phoenix. Had the 2 course deal menu and was very good - excellent choice and great VFM. Our waitress was lovely - attentive and friendly. 4 of us eating with the glass of wine included came to £65 including extra bread. Can’t fault it - we’ll be back!
Food was very dIsappointing. The linguine resembled a Chinese stir fry
We had a delicious meal with super service !
We are going to return for a 50 birthday supper with a group of 8 friends. We are sure that branca will deliver a great evening for us !
We came to dinner at Branca after a glass of wine at the Oxford Wine Café. It was a nice evening, so we sat in the courtyard and enjoyed the weather. We had prompt, helpful service and a delicious meal — I particularly enjoyed the wild boar tortelloni special and the pistachio cheesecake. As a whole, the restaurant is relaxed but sophisticated. I would return.
All of our food was very good and our waitress was lovely. She really looked after our table - thanks we'll be back soon
Wonderful menu, simple and delicious. Kids food was outstanding, it was fresh and healthy. Well looked after by polite friendly staff.
Friendly attentive staff, great service, delicious food and catered perfectly for my Gluten Free requirements, would highly recommend as great atmosphere
Had a lovely evening sat in the garden. Service was enhanced by the very engaging and helpful Sofia. Food was spot on. Excellent value. Thankyou!
Excellent. As it always is.
Would love to find something to complain about to satisfy the character count on this review. But there’s no need.
Just enjoy it.
Lovely Meditteranean style food and garden - lunch deal very good value for money (two courses and a drink for £16). Only slight quibble was that we were left for so long after our dessert that by the time we grabbed a passing waiter we didn't have time to order coffee - just had to get the bill and go. But otherwise the service was good. Would highly recommend.
Mid-week lunch at Branca, nice atmosphere, outside space for eating. Lovely pizza and liked the option of different portion sizes for main courses. Will visit again.
We had a lovely table outside and were given blankets to use. The service was good, if a little slow...there were some large groups in. We all thought that the Lamb special was overpriced
Branca was a good as ever. Fun bar, nice garden, attentive staff
I have been going to Branca for years and I love it. Beautiful setting. Lovely reliable food and good choice. Pretty summer garden. However, we have taken friends for Sunday lunch twice in the last two months and service has been really poor. Very slow to even take a drinks order and slow with food. It won’t stop me going but I have been disappointed.
