We visited Olivier's with friends. We were greeted very professionally and shown to the delightful bar prior to dining. The menu was not extensive, but the choices were interesting. However, we thought the starters were pricey and not a great choice, so went straight into the main course. I chose a 'Lamb platter' to share, my wife chose sea bass... More

I hadn't eaten here for a number of years, so decided to revisit this establishment. Three of us enjoyed a really good meal with a lovely bottle of wine. I would recommend the Chilean 'de Gras' Merlot 2014, a very pleasant surprise. The restaurant was full, always good to see, with a good mix of cleantel. The service from Adele... More

Popped into Woburn on Sunday for lunch at Olivier's Restaurant. As usual, the staff were very attentive and 'Nothing' was to much trouble. The food was excellent and David and his team throughout the stay were brilliant. Well done David. Keep it up! Customer Service in the UK is not what it was and some companies are paying for it...

We visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and loved the food, we had been meaning to return but finally found the time to go this week.

I have visited Olivier's many times over the years with friends and the food has always been excellent, as it was last Sunday. However, over the last year the service has deteriorated to a poor level for an upmarket establishment. I don't expect staff to be hovering over me but equally I don't expect to have to pour my own... More

A warm and attractive restaurant with friendly and attentive staff, busy at weekends. Good choice of well prepared and presented food. with a decent range of wines, and real ale available from the bar. Well worth considering when unching or dining in Woburn
