The sea bass is superb. The only problem is the size. I can never eat it all. It's delicious, melts in you mouth and I like my food hot. It's never served lukewarm. Had aubergines and courgettes with lovely potatoes all cooked in olive oil. Bang goes my diet! Friendly, genuinely nice staff make up for little mistakes. Who's perfect!... More

Went here on a wet Saturday lunchtime with daughter and hubby, it wasn't busy which influenced our decision to eat here. we had a light Greek lunch of dips platter and bread. it was just right, selection of about 6 fresh tasting authentic dips which we thoroughly enjoyed. Would recommend. they also do a takeaway menu.

We are local and often go to the Olive Branch for its very pleasant atmosphere / decoration / setting, delicious food and friendly service. There is always a warm welcome even if we only pop in for a coffee or a small metze to share. Efkaristo.

Nice Greek lager on offer & the greek yoghurt dessert is fantastic but probably best to split it with someone!

I actually find it kind of amusing and endearing that the staff seem a bit challenged. We have some sort of issue with them every time, as they seem to struggle with taking orders correctly, or they'll convince you that the dish you're ordering definitely doesn't have tomatoes in it (person ordering was allergic to tomatoes and made this very...

We spend 2 weeks in Aberystwyth each year visiting family. We will usually drop in for a meal with the family at least twice. The atmosphere and decor is traditional . The meals have always been fresh and "authentic". My moussaka was excellent as was the whole sea bass ( a very generous size). I would also recommend the pork... More

I had salmon it was okay ntohing to write home about, but the wine was very nice and the whole place is very quaint and authentic. everyone else I was with seemed to like it more than I... More

I went out to the olive branch last night with a group of friends. Firstly the service was terrible, with grunts from waiters and sinister looks. Secondly the food was extremely oily, and I think my swordfish may have upset my stomach a little bit. Ill gve them a good choice for the mains, but dessert only had three options.... More

We have been to the Olive Branch a few times. It has always been decent, honest food. The place is quite nice with large windows, where you can get a glimpse of the bay. The greek platters were very tasty and our baked lamb very tender and delicious . Overal good value for money. We will come back
