Dined at Ombra and could not fault the restaurant. Staff were super helpful, good well priced wine selection and the food was amazing. Small and intimate setting which creates a great atmosphere. Ill definitely dine here again.

We were quickly seated and a staff member came over to explain how things work. Dishes arrive as prepared rather than being held back until all ready. These small sharing plates were very well produced with super flavours. Everything was done well. A very sociable way of dining.

Monday evening. Nothing special in your mind, just walking around to find a nice place to eat in. And then nice looking place full of people. Great! Restaurant was full but friendly host arranged us table at once. Even more friendly waitress explained the idea and took the beverage order. In few minutes we had nice drinks in glasses. Menu...

Had been hearing good things about Ombra so decided to try a Saturday night for ourselves. Place was busy but no wait when we arrived, and were seated immediately. Staff were professional and friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food is tapas style, and things are brought out as they are ready. We tried a good variety of... More

My wife and I had dinner at Ombra. Being coeliac, I needed gluten free food. The staff were very friendly and explained the gluten free options. Mainly share plates here - but be warned, the dishes were larger than we expected so we probably over-ordered. They served the crostini appetisers on gluten free bread and they were delicious - it...

Some of the best food we've ever had!! We went on a quiet afternoon with hardly anyone there so service was fantastic. The meatballs and gnocchi were my favourite but everything we tried was amazing. Delicious desserts too. Price is mid range but well worth it.

We took a large group (some of them are picky eaters). There was something for everyone to eat and enjoy; everyone had fun; and the bill wasn't too painful. Good Cuba St location and charming decor if you like heritage/retro/distressed (it's actually all-new but does it well).

A fabulous restaurant. Great atmosphere, lively and buzzing. Amazing food. The idea is that select a number of small dishes to sample. Great food and service. Well worth a visit.

Good food though it could have been a little more taste in different dishes. The Panzanetta salad was really good. One of us got two dishes in the same time, one of us had to wait for quite a time before the first dish arrived. It is not so nice being two people that eat while the third person is... More
