Food is nice looking and good taste. Price is fair.
Decent food and sound staff service. Only issue was portion size - moderate at lunch time, and one person in the group needed a top up from elsewhere.
Good Friday lunch set and great service. Enjoy Friday free flow!
Lovely frunch. Friend enjoyed it and will return! Good atmosphere.
Love the atmosphere and service so much! Happy Girls Night!

We enjoyed the food so much and love their friendly staff members!
The waiters were funny and helpful! My friend and I had a great time!
Excellent service, great food,fun atmosphere and very reasonable prices. Recommended for couples and small groups.
Excellent service and definitely one of the best steaks (Chateau Briand) in town. Loved the smokey/ burned taste of it. Great wines too.
Late ultimate weekend brunch. The Iberian Charcuterie & Cheese were an irresistible start off cold dishes followed by a variety of starters to share. Missed the main course dish (Juicy Lobster Rice). To avoid disappointment, pre-ordered the rice while making table reservation days before. Gave thumbs to the soft and tender Charcoal Roasted Chicken. Wouldn’t feel complete without tasting the mouth watering desserts. Staff were professionally trained: courteous smile, spontaneous, good communication skills, eye contacts with customers, cheerful ...
The bar with their Gin & Tonic selection is a must before you go for the dinner!
AMAZING food and atmosphere at The Optimist~ Special thanks to Djama for making our night extra memorable ❤️ Will definitely go back again!!
The service is a bit chaotic and the waiting staff needed to be reminded by repeated requests.
I had a good experience in this night, I will coming again in the next time. They are very friendly and nice people. I love so much :) Thanks
It was great, Leo treated us very well as well as all the other staff! Looking forward to coming back and trying the "Huevos Rotos".
We loved our dining experience at The Optimist. Thanks to all the team who made it the perfect afternoon.
Great food and very attentive staff. Will come back for sure.
It was a friends birthday and staff immediately asked if there was a special occasion. They surprised us later with a birthday song and candle with our desserts. A very sweet and memorable lunch and warm greeting from the staff will definitely recommend to people.
Food is really kinda average doesn’t live up to pirata group quality
Very nice service, we did not wait long for our dishes, good food but not so big portions, more ‘tapas’ like. We had a great time !
Great overall experience (as usual). Simply good, non-fussy food and lovely service
Tasty food and attentive service helped to ensure a great dinner with friends.
Terrific dining experience. Great cocktails !! Really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.
Good food and atmosphere but a bit of waiting time
Thanks and have a good day. Bye bye and take care.
Loved it, restaurant had a great atmosphere that wasn’t overwhelming
Nice quality food with awesome cocktails... good ambience..worth a visit...
The music was too loud for a Sunday lunchtime. I asked the staff to turn down the volume which they did. The room was already quite noisy with people talking rather loud.
Great food, great service, fabulous vibe. Will definitely return again.
Staff were pleasant and food was good. Would have been even nicer if tapas were offered on the menu.
Great food, perfect atmosphere! Highly recommend The Optimist for dinner or a drink
Good food, atmosphere and service. The only minus was the table we were given for 7 people. We ended up being so it was perfect (but 7 at the table would have been very uncomfortable)
Great food and buzzy ambience, definitely recommended for a fun evening
Great food, poor service, not enought time to enjoy our dining experience as only had a 2 hour window to order, eat, and get out.
Vey Good food and good services, a good restaurant. .....
