Cuttlefish Seafood Bar & Grill
Cuttlefish offers high-quality fresh, seasonal seafood in the heart of Oxford. Run by the same team behind the adjacent La Cucina, the informal restaurant was born from Yola Drage and her husband Alberto Brunelli’s passion for fresh seafood, along with their culinary expertise. They have no shortage of local and reliable fish suppliers from their work at La Cucina, so the couple’s concept, with the support of head chef Michele Genna, has taken Oxford by storm. Whether you’re after a great evening meal out or a delicious takeaway to enjoy from the comfort of your own home, Cuttlefish is a great shout. Children are very welcome in the restaurant, which has a family-orientated feel.
Utilising fresh produce and seasonal seafood means the menu changes often. You might find lightly fried whitebait with a sundried tomato and paprika dip, surf and turf – fillet steak with lobster and prawns – or the chef’s mixed grill for one or two, comprising the very best of the day’s catch on a single platter, gracing the menu. The offering also includes plenty of options for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, while the wine menu is both confident and accessible. With different promotions each night (see their website for details), brunch-style egg dishes available daily, tapas dishes on offer and car parking directly behind the building, this new addition to the Oxford foodie scene won’t be disappearing in a hurry.
