Great food, good value and friendly staff. Only one bad thing, we had a baby in a pram so had to negotiate steep stairs!

Following our visit to the Town Hall, we went again as a group of six to the Olive Tree, and were not disappointed. We all had different tastes and although not deliberately awkward,we must have been something of a nightmare for the lovely girl serving us. However she took our orders with infinite patience and good humour, and the food,... More

We booked a table for six and the atmosphere and the food was perfect. Our group hadn't seen each other for a number of years so it was important that the servce was seamless so as to maximise our time together and I must say the staff didn't let us down. We had a great time with great service and... More

We went as a group of four early on New year's eve. We were lucky to get a table at 5.30 as the place was fully booked and I can understand why. The food was excellent and the ambience great. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I would definitely recommend to anyone. There is a flight of stairs to... More

Just the best. I went in 25th November with my friend to celebrate her birthday. It was lunch time and not so busy but the attention to service was excellent. They gave my friend a free bubbly for her birthday and the food was just divine . I had a pasta dish and then tiramisu. Just divine. Would definitely recommend... More

This is a lovely friendly resturant in liverpool. Food is good value the burgers are fab. Decor is low lighting and its not too noisy if you want to chat. I've returned several times and always had good service.

Good food, good atmosphere, reasonable prices and unlike a lot of restaurants there is enough light to see what is on your plate and enough to allow you to guide the food to your mouth. (This is a Mediterranean restaurant with slippery pasta and sauces galore.) Recommended.

This is my favourite restaurant in south Liverpool. John the owner is a wonderful host and the menu is always excellent, changing regularly as well. I have eaten here in a couple as well as for my 30th where 25 of us had a great night and the food was fantastic for everyone. Definitely worth a visit and great value... More
