I came here over the weekend with the whole family, and the experience we had was outstanding from the moment we stepped through the door. It's only got a small seating area, but that just adds to the home-cooked feel of the place. The staff are terrific. Very welcoming and incredibly attentive. And the food was full of flavours and...

I'm a big fan of this place. I live fairly local to here, and would choose it any day of the week over most of the other pretentious "restaurants" in this area of Roundhay. If I had one criticism to make, it'd be that sometimes the speed they bring the food out if feels like you're being rushed - like,... More

We had a meal here recently with friends. The service was excellent - even a little over-attentive, with the young waitress checking every few minutes that everything was OK. It' s a small restaurant but opening a bigger place locally soon. The size of the room plus the coolness of the night meant that every time someone came in, we... More

No matter what day of the week or time of the day, this restaurant never fails to provide excellent food and a fantastic personal service. I've been many times now and would strongly recommend for a romantic meal, a family occasion or a night out with friends. The Olive Branch provides the perfect location for any occasion. The staff are... More

This restaurant is a bit of a regular with me and my husband. We just love the food here and the atmosphere. We are never disappointed and the food is always of a high standard. My only criticism would be I wish there was more on the menu and that it was a bigger venue as it can be hard... More

I visited the olive branch for lunch with a friend on Friday 9th May on the recommendation of my sister who has visited twice and had a lovely experience. I can only agree with her and advise readers to beware of unscrupulous reviews poorly written and incomprehensible. The food was delicious, very fresh and tasty and obviously prepared with care....

Olive Branch is a Mediterranean style neighbourhod cafe and every neighborhood should have one. Of course in Mediterranean countries everyone does. But not here. What characterises it is that it fulfills so many function: drop in for a coffee and a chat, enjoy a snack lunch, sit down for a 3 course dinner or just have a beer on the... More
