    Had the chef's experience and nothing ever prepared me for what came next. Starting from absolutely wonderful service with cocktails for us to watching Chef Dan so beautifully shucking the oysters, watching the line cooks move like a well choreographed musical. It was magical already then the Scotch eggs arrived and I was literally in another world. Every single dish that came to us blew my mind away. The hosts helped us pair our food with perfect wine. There is nothing else I could think about after such divine meal. P.S. I wanted to take the apricot chicken home and devour it like an animal in my trackies. Definitely coming back! Oui chef!

    Absolutely amazing, from the opening of those elegant doors, to the smiles and greetings of Omnia s high calibre personell. The service the background info re Omnia, the phylosophy the description of each dish made us feel we were somewhere else. Each dish, from the beef tartare, to the parfait, the scotch egg, pork belly gnudi and crunchy cigars as an appetiser, could not be faulted. Both of us u could say veterans of hospitality, have already programmed our next VISITS, as the food personable service and show from the Head Chef conducting his brigade, warrants the whole menu to be tried. Ragazzi siete bravissimi.

    the smoked trout cigars POPPED with flavour, deeply smoky and filled generously with trout. the steak tartare was really elevated by the tableside preparation, allowing us to appreciate the origins of each element of the dish. I wouldn’t of known tomato salsa was added! the sauce under the octopus was incredibly fragrant and more-ish, i wanted to lick this off the plate! however the potatoes were average and the octopus incredibly chewy. the veg and purées carried the lamb dish, which was itself under-seasoned but cooked well and very tasty when all elements combined. to me it resembled a traditional main you’d receive at a wedding. the salad was dressed in a beautifully fragrant herb dressing, and the fries were perfectly salty, hot and crisp (and we loved the skin left on!) desserts were fascinating! the liquid cheesecake was exactly as it sounds, gooey deliciousness - we just wish it was bigger and served in a more suitable dish rather than baking paper. the tiramisu was different to any I’ve previously had! layered with a cacao nib praline, it gave crunch which is unauthentic to the dessert but certainly welcomed. perfect coffee : cream ratio. safe to say we enjoyed our meal at omnia, every plate was certainly wiped clean! while some dishes did fall short, the incredibly friendly service beautiful ambience really lifted our experience and overall rating!

    We had fabulous food and drink at this great restaurant on a very busy Thursday night. Very lively with the open kitchen where we had a bird's eye view of all the comings and goings and drama of the food preparation. Would highly recommend. We were a little cold from the aircon so make sure to take a jacket.

    I had a great time at Omnia Bistro Bar! I loved the scallop dish with the white strawberries and pistachio – it was an amazing combination of flavours and textures. I really enjoyed the roasted duck with the side salad as well. The ambiance and service that night met my expectations. I would definitely visit this place again!
