My husband and I visited this restaurant recently. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. It's very well staffed and they were excellent. Very attentive. If you're looking for a good restaurant look no further. Enjoy!

Decided to go to Okka for an evening meal. Looked up reviews and saw a lot about brilliant breakfasts and brunches and did not know if this cafe/restaurant would be able to deliver a good evening meal aswell. Do not worry. Go. Not a cafe in any sense of the word at all in the evening. Lovely ambiance of a... More

The female waıtress was an absolute star and gave us her utmost attention. The food was fantastic from the risotto to the salmon fillet, chicken, everything was faultless. Great selection of wines.... More

However cafe isn't flawless. I've got a few gripes with food and drinks. Me and missus ordered chicken sandwich and grilled chicken salad and chicken with both our... More

we visited family in Harpenden recently and had a delightful experience in Okka. Duran was a very welcoming host and could charm the birds from the trees. He made us feel right at home.

An all day eatery with a Mediterranean influence serving breakfast, lunch and dinner (in that order).Because we are an all day eatery it means you can come with your kids (for bubble and squeak and a milkshake), you can come with your friends (for a carefully selected ‘Teapigs’ tea and slice of the drizzliest lemon drizzle cake ever),  you can come with your other half (for our  ‘21 day aged’ rib eye steaks and bottle of Rioja) or you can just come on your own, to enjoy a cup of our excellent coffee and linger over the papers. (Slippers not included).
