    This was such a pleasant surprise, the halloumi was exceptional, and the food overall is incredibly well presented, its tasty, its local, its vibrant. My second favorite dish was the spicy lentils! Great service and kind service.

    This was our first visit to Volta - for lunch on a Friday. We were expecting it to be good - but not this good! The food was amazing - a great range of small plates and great wine and beer too. Super service. Will definitely be going back in an evening.

    The service could be improved, staff weren’t very attentive - we had to poor our own wine, then ask for more wine, and no one asked how our food was. They then added service charge on for 5 of us….. Would have been happier paying if we got the basic service levels. Food was amazing though.

    Beautiful food. Small dishes but plenty of it and very tasty. Service was excellent too. The only thing I would say is that it would be good to have some serving spoons, when your dining with a few of you and you're sharing diferent dishes. Will definitely return.
