Ridiculously good... Small intimate restaurant. Food was fantastic and the service was great. Ended up getting the earlybird/pre theatre as everything we wanted on the al carte was here. Great value, food and atmosphere

We had An absoutely superb meal on Friday night. I had asparagus to start with followed by nettle gnocchi, my husband had eel (first time I tasted eel and it was beautiful) followed by the best mussels I have ever tasted. We shared a bitter chocolate and cherry desert along with a cheese board. Wonderful! Service was excellent, warm and friendly Such a lovely dining experience.

Invariably excellent food. Though the place is small and it can be hard to get a table the staff are always accommodating and helpful. The Hake was so fresh it dissolved on my tongue. Top notch.

Can't fault this lovely place. Such a warm, friendly atmosphere. Exceptional complex tastes in the dishes. Pre-theatre dinner great value but you'd better book. It is very popular.

Lunchtime visit did not disappoint. The food exceeds expectations set by the venue which does little to communicate the quality and authenticity of the food. Small tables, tightly packed leave little room to hold the necessary items, water and a glass of vino. That said the food was exceptional. Ox tongue with a tangy mustard that danced in my mouth. A rough yet smooth spelt risotto with garden peas, chanterelle and taleggio. The food is Spanish, rustic and simply but beautifully presented. A great lunchtime venue.

Extremely knowledgeable friendly staff who were able to make great recommendations on pairing the food with wine. Agree with other reviews that it's quite pricey. We shared a cote du boeuf and at €58 would expect it to come with a few more extras other than side of garlic potatoes. Ox tongue starter was tasty, although I wasn't overly impressed with the hens egg starter. Didn't go for desert and just finished with coffees. Tables extremely close together - too close for comfort as you feel your neighbours are listening to your conversations.

We had an excellent dinner here on a Sat night - able to book seats at the bar on the day itself. I think bar seats in Etto are the best anyway, as you get to interact with the bustle of the restaurant, and talk to the staff whose service and friendliness is first class. The food was good and innovative (duck hearts on toast, anyone?). Only downside was that the prices seemed to have gone up appreciably since our last visit a year or so ago.

Visited Etto for Friday lunch and the food was fantastic. Simple yet delicious food. Limited atmosphere but it was a Friday so can't knock it.

I've been wanting to try Etto for such a long time, but it's so popular, it was difficult to get a table. Well worth the wait though!
A glass of prosecco to accompany the pate of young Iberico jamon which was a lovely beginning to the meal, followed by melt in the mouth featherblade of beef and pan seared cod. The featherblade was moist and tender, cooked slowly for 12 hours and served with creamy polenta while the cod was beautifully coloured and accompanied by baby new potatoes and a whisper of truffle. We were both (barely) fit for dessert and the lemon posset and the flourless chocolate cake beckoned and did not disappoint. Well worth a visit, friendly service, and celestial cooking, a winning combination!

Food was tasty- but extremely over priced. Its like they rented a room with dirty walls for cheap- threw in a few tables and then charge €26 per main. If they are doing the look of cheap and cheerful- their prices should reflect. Portions are small. Cheapest bottle of wine €24- which they had none of . The next bottle was €34. Seriously over rated! They did not even provide bread. Choose a high end restarunt that will provide real service and, better food and better portions for the same price.
