Hostess was very rude even though I had a reservation. The place was empty and she kept trying to give us the worst table. I had to say no twice. She refused to let us sit by the windows even though they didn’t even fill up for another hour. We were there for a special occasion and she completely ruined the beginning of our meal. We had a very nice waitress.

Much more quiet at lunch than at dinner which was great for a relaxed working lunch. A little low on attendance though which did not make it for a very vibrant moment if this is what one is after.

Living in Asia this is our definite go to for a mix of all the food we love, under one roof when we are missing home food. The staff are always welcoming and friendly. The bar has lovely cocktails with a fantastic atmosphere. Perfect location. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough

Great experience. Lots of fun on a Saturday night. Had a late reservation, so it was nice and busy in the back and hopping in the front bar area, in a great way. Food and drinks were great! A bit pricey, but knew before going there.

I used to be a regular at E & O. What happened in the last years. Thought I would give it another go only to find an overpriced and disappointing. Restricted wine choice by glass ensuring high cost and portion size that was appalling. The crispy sand fish was disgusting. Overcooked deep fried fish with most flesh too dry and inedible.

the food is good. the service is efficient. what moved me to a "no" recommendation was that as soon as we finished our entrees, they brought the check and started replacing the tablecloth on the table, while we were paying the bill. assuming this was to force us out faster so they could turn the table over more quickly. i could "almost" understand it if we were lingering around but the whole meal - apps to entree - was about 45 minutes. thought it was really rude and would not go back.

Very rushed service - all courses served very quickly with no break between courses. Did not make it a good dining experience.

Staff were not friendly , and didn’t want to help accommodate.

I have been to this restaurant years back and really liked it but both food and service have gone down hill - I would not go back.

Paper table-covers kind of didn't work at that price point and it didn't feel like it was part of a deliberate concept.

The food was OK but not exciting

Lighting too strong

£120 for two with one £35 bottle of wine excessive for all of the above reasons

Shocking attitude of the waitress. One in particular with the piercing in her face. How can you employ someone that has such an attitude. Disgusted by it. She’s dropped my food on the floor and still put in on my table. Just disgusting. So rude with a bad attitude.

So disappointed with our experience. Our meal for 2 was over £260 and for that I expected a lot lot more! Absolutely ruined our night with the attitude of this lady. Such a bad experience at E&O, thoroughly disappointing...... I’d love to hear the managers thoughts......
