Better than, or at least equal to the best tapas we have eater in Barcelona. Fabulously tasty and generous portions. Excellent, friendly and efficient but unobtrusive service. Surroundings are fresh, clean and attractive. Highly recommended.

I love Tapas and go to different places locally to see which is the better. This is the best place iv been so far and even better than some of the places I've ate at in London! If you can do the lunchtime tapas deal (which is still the full tapas menu, just for less money) then do that. Decent... More

I have eaten here four times now - three lunches (two with my husband) and one evening meal with husband and friends. Hubby and I have become big fans!.

Service is very good but average food. I ordered pesto chicken and the chicken was way too overdone and too much of the chicken. Good wine though.

My first visit to The Olive Brach although others in our group had been before. Started the evening in the cellar bar and then had our meal in the upstairs restaurant. Food lovely, atmosphere great, if a little noisy. Not my usual choice of a night out as not a big fan of Mediterranean food, but may visit again.

We ate here on a sunny Saturday lunchtime. They have a fantastic selection on the tapas menu of which we choose five between two of us. The food was superb really tasty. The the service was excellent. My wife and I felt the experience was like being away on holiday. FANTASTIC. We will definitely be visiting again.

First visit today and very impressed. Staff were welcoming and service good. We ordered the tapas, 5 dishes for £20, and everyone was delicious and well presented. Had coffee with a mini dessert which was a yummy end to the meal. Will certainly be back to test more of the menu.
