Courtesy of a voucher, five of us had a superb meal at the Olive Press. It was a four course menu with limited but some variety to choose from and it allowed our group to taste a few different dishes on offer. The food was excellent, hot when it was served and tasted delicious. We also went on a night... More

We had a family birthday at the Olive Press. It was a cold night so the fire and timber provided a warm atmosphere. The food was well cooked, good quantity and nicely presented. They allowed us to take a birthday cake in and even brought it out at the appropriate time. It's not the cheapest restaurant in Devonport but all... More

I've known this restaurant for many years, ownership has changed a few times and it never seems to get completely off the starting blocks. Mainly because they don't seem to know much about promoting it, it's tucked around a corner from the main street. I was there recently for weekend lunch and the one on the main road corner a... More

Service outstanding! The entire evening my husband and I were there for a Friday evening meal, the staff did their very best in giving us a very good and attentive service. However, my white wine was not cold but this was sorted, and my husbands food was not hot! The staff did sort this problem to his satisfaction. I frequently... More

We ate here in February and took advantage of the available outdoor seating, though not idyllic as it was by the road it was still a pleasant enough courtyard. We ordered arancini balls for starter which were very enjoyable, with a nice sour cream chilli sauce which we would reccommend. For our mains we had the duck which was incredibly... More
