Lovely spot, delicious food great atmosphere, friendly staff.
A pleasant place in central Oxford for lunch. Good service and money towards a good cause.
Lovely food, great service. Candles on the tables give a nice ambiance. Will definitely go back and recommend to others. Situated in the heart of Oxford.
Thank you for your lovely review Julie! We hope to see you again soon
I found this restaurant on a guide of 'best places to eat in Oxford' so booked in for a special lunch with my Mum - service was very slow, other tables who cam e in after us got served before we did, we asked for water and had to ask twice more before it came, food portions were very small, soup was cold. Overall pretty disappointed with this place.
Thank you for your feedback Annie and are sorry you found your experience not up to scratch. We hope to see you again soon nevertheless.
The Kitchen had just reopened after refurbishment and the full menu was not available. Nevertheless what was provided was totally adequate and we will look forward to returning when the Kitchen is back to full strength.
Thank you very much for your positive review! We very much look forward to seeing you again when we have a full menu running.
This was not the best meal I ever had but it was very good for the price.
Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the food for the price and hope to see you again soon.
Imaginative menu, nice atmosphere, good value - especially wine offer!!
Thank you for your lovely review, we hope to see you again soon!
Good tentative service - pre theatre meal which was just right - superb triple cooked chips!
We are very glad you enjoyed your time with us! Thank you for your review and we certainly hope to see you again shortly.
We had a good meal, pre theatre.
Last time there was a choice of glass bottled still or fizzy water on the house, this time only still.
Good location to take visitors to
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your pre theatre meal and hope to see you again soon.
First table offered we couldn’t all fit as the next table was so close. Next table was level with the floor of the adjoining part of the restaurant. Floor was sadly filthy and rather off putting. Staff were lovely. Food was good.
Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed our food and service. So sorry you had trouble getting seated, we have just finished a refurbishment so I hope on your next visit you will find the flooring and tables more to your liking.
Pleasant surroundings, good service, good food. Quantity about right, all good!
Thank you very much for your lovely review, we hope to see you again!
Food was slightly disappointing, for the price you can get better food elsewhere
Thank you for your review, your feedback will be taken into account. We will be launching a new menu shortly and hope to see you again then.
Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again.
TSK is always good - my fave lunch spot in Oxford. Food is tasty and inventive, staff cheery and fantastic ethos.
Thank you for your lovely review! We hope to see you again soon.
I have been there several times before, and always found the food to be excellent with a good selection of dishes. This time the choice was very limited (only 5 starters, 5 mains and 3 desserts - of which one was cheese). The food was very bland and unimpressive, especially for the price, except for the chocolate dessert.
On the pus side are the excellent location and the nice atmosphere
Thank you for your review. We are sorry the food didn't come up to par for you this time around. We will soon be launching a new menu and hope to see you again then.
Delicious, interesting food served in a lovely venue, lively but not too noisy. Reasonably priced and central location would definitely recommend
Thank you very much for your detailed review! We are very glad you enjoyed yourself and hope to see you again soon.
seats are very very uncomfortable. Pretty busy- early Fri evening - but service was slow especially initially with wine. Also, your wooden floors exacerbate noise levels making conversation difficult.
Food well cooked but nothing special
Thank you for your review. We are sorry service wasn't quite up to speed this time. We will be refurbishing and hope to see you again then.
This pace is amazing. So relaxed, not a hint of pretentiousness. Food was great and very reasonably priced. Service was friendly and staff were were always on hand if required. Highly recommended.
Thank you very much for your lovely review! We hope to see you again soon
Lovely menu consisting of a few high quality options, fairly priced. Friendly staff and a nice ambience.
Thank you very much for your review! We are glad you enjoyed yourself and hope to see you again soon.
Excellent service, great location and ambience. Our starters were a bit amateurish and surprised there was no bread with them. Our main courses were less than impressive, we expected the vegetarian option to arrived with Puy lentils but it was a sort of sloppy daal. The pork belly wasn’t crispy and was small and very tough. Nice place, pleasant experience but very mediocre cooking.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the service! We will soon be launching a new menu and we hope to see you again when we do.
Great main courses, but the puddings were a little disappointing, the coconut milk panna cotta didn’t taste of anything and my husbands chocolate ganache was rock hard. The service was haphazard, we waited for ages for desert menus and to pay the bill.
But nice atmosphere and mains were good.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry the service and desserts were not up to par. We are glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and your main dishes however, and hope to see you again.
An enjoyable evening meal at this busy restaurant in central Oxford. The food quality was very good and the service was excellent from the well-trained waiters. The ambience was relaxed but buzzing and overall a fine evening.
Thank you for your lovely review! We are glad you enjoyed your time and hope to see you again.
A good experience. Properly cooked, unfussy food at a reasonable price. 5 stars for my battered fish and triple-cooked chips.
Great food and setting, with friendly but distracted service.
Thank you for your review. We hope to provide better service next time!
We really enjoyed the food and our waiter was really kind and helpful. We will definitely be back!
Excelkent - reasonably priced with plenty of vegetarian options
The restaurant area has a charming interior. The menu was interesting, with seasonal authenticity. The food was tasty. The service was good.
Thank you so much for the review - we hope to see you again soon!
Very pleasant place to eat. Food is fine but never quite makes it. Service is nice.
The ambience was good - not too noisy and quite cosy. Service was enthusiastic if a trifle slow (not the waiter’s fault - he had too many tables to serve). But my tagine was horrible: vegetables just mush with no flavour (certainly not the advertised spices) and topped with a sour yoghurt which didn’t agree with me at all. I suspect the dish was either frozen or reheated. The tagine at Café Rouge is much much better. For only the second time in my life I was not able to finish a restaurant meal. Very disappointing.
We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your meal here with us, none of our dishes here are frozen so it is incredibly disheartening to think that it tasted that way - your feedback has been passed on to the kitchen team. Thank you for leaving your feedback.
The service and atmosphere were warm and inviting.
The food was very tasty but it wasn't very hot when it arrived and consequently got cold quite quckly.
Good wine choices.
Thank you for leaving us a review and flagging about the food temperature - we have passed this information on to the kitchen team. we hope to see you again soon!
Haven’t been here for a while and was a bit disappointed this time. We had to request water 3 times before it arrived, even though they had already brought the glasses over. They were quite busy but seemed a bit chaotic. The mains very good but quite small portions on the vegetarian choices when the meat roasts weren’t much more expensive but looked like a decent plateful. The puddings sounded original and interesting so we thought we’d order some but were all disappointed and wished we’d not bothered at £7 for Elton mess that was pretty much a glass of cream with a few bits of fruit and hardly any meringue and shop bought amaretto biscuits. The poached plums with granola and ginger custard sounded appealing but was again mainly cream (which wasn’t even mentioned as an ingredient) with very small pieces of plum, a sprinkle of granola and the ‘custard’ was a cold drizzle of sauce that wasn’t enough to taste the ginger. We weren’t asked if we enjoyed the meal and overall thought it wasn’t good value for money and won’t eat there again. I can only assume they are putting profit before customer satisfaction.
Good choice on the menu based on fresh produce and the dishes we selected were very tasty. Attentive and friendly service. A very nice meal.
We enjoyed a lovely evening at this restaurant. Great service - very friendly, fast and efficient. The food was great - a good variety of choices on the menu and all four of us were really satisfied with what we ordered. I would definitely recommend.
Fabulous service- excellent seasonal menu. Loads of veggie options.
Great in every way
Thank you so much for your lovely review!
Although I am normally quite “sniffy” about veggie food but there were several attractive sounding options on the menu. I opted for aubergine gratin which was very tasty.
Service was very efficient and friendly.
Thank you for your review Paul, we're so glad that you enjoyed your meal!
Food was ok but sadly lacking in flavour! We felt quite rushed too - mains arrived only 10 minutes after ordering and long before our drinks turned up. Sadly it's starting to feel much more about quick turn arounds and profit than a leisurely enjoyable meal. And that's reflected in the quality of the food too. Ours was only just warm (and felt reheated). On the plus side, the staff are as lovely and attentive as ever.
Lovely restaurant with friendly, knowledgable staff. Food was delicious, plenty of inventive vegetarian options which I was impressed by. Love the fact they’re part of a local social co-operative, their food is all seasonal and locally sourced and they are on the Low Carbon charter - plus they try to be zero waste where possible!
Food only luke warm on arrival, side dishes arrived after mains had been eaten
Ordered two different soup starters, one came up cold. Sent back and took ages to come back. My husband had already finished his when mine came back. Ordered to different Dinners. This time my husband came back cold and mine was veg hot but meat warm.
