Tried here on a quiet Sunday evening and as expect it was quiet. Starters of meatballs and mushrooms were nice but could not eat the Greek Pork Sausages. They were so nasty that I had to spit it out. Too embarrassed to say anything so got out quick.

I chose to take my husband here today for his pre birthday meal. The best food we have ever had in any restaurant! We chose Hoummous & Tsatsiki dips, which came with homemade bread. We also had Butterbeans in tomato & herbs sauce & feta & spring onion filled filo pastry rolls for starters. We both shared everything, so as... More

Me and my husband found this charming Greek restaurant in Aberystwyth when visiting one Saturday in September. We like Greek food having been there several times on holiday. We decided to opt to have several small plates rather than a large meal. We chose humous dip, meat balls in a rich tomato sauce, pitta bread, Gigantes a bean casserole and... More

I was invited as a guest of my good friend from Greece and his parents. The easy going stretched out dining experience was an array of lovely textures and flavours. A sort of mega tapas banquet. It's not sold as such, but that is how my Greek friends handled the menu and shared the dishes that they chose. It sort... More

The ambiance in the olive branch is my favourite part, it's very welcoming and warm with a delightful Grecian feel. The food is outstandingly tasty!! Whatever you order is wonderful! (Highly recommend the swordfish! Or tatziki starter)

We went early when there were not many people in but it soon filled up. The food was ok but the interior is tired and dusty looking. Definitely needs a makeover.

Lacking in many directions. The outside shows signage is a signal as to what is instore, tired lack luster and relying on the past. The out side menu board was showing its age, to me this indicates complacency unless the food and atmosphere are worthy of such an attitude. Hardly anyone in when we walked in with no booking. It...

Looking for somewhere for lunch on a blustery day in Aber we chanced upon this Greek restaurant. On being shown to our table we were given the lunch menu, but wanted something more substantial. The waitress then brought the full menu and invited us to choose from that. Our meals took a little while to arrive (I presume because the... More
