Olive Bizarre is a delicious little spot in the harbour area of the town. You can enjoy exquisite teas/coffees with goodies galore and a view to die for. Our afternoon tea is highly recommended and our traybakes and scones will not fail to please. We have a vast range of savoury dishes and provide an array of gluten free and vegetarian foods. Our child friendly policy is also popular and to top it all our friendly team will make you feel very welcome. See you soon. John and Ciaraxox

Came here at Easter just for a late lunch with my mum .... First of all it is in a beautiful setting with the sea right in front of you and the place is so well interior designed with a great holiday atmosphere. I ordered a pot of tea, a coconut and raspberry scone and a gorgeous looking cupcake... enjoyed... More

Afternoon tea a must to try as a lovely treat. Quirky place. The view of the sea is lovely. The service was slow to start to the point we were nearly going to leave as took so long to take our order but worth staying. Even the toilet is quirky

Food is beautiful, quirky surroundings, amazing view of the beach and sea. Staff could be a bit more attentive however this probably adds to the relaxed theme of the place. Drop in and see for yourself it's lovely

I was lucky enough to be treated to an Olive Bizarre Bistro Night for my birthday last week. I loved the buzz, busy but not overcrowded, friendly atmosphere and attentive service. But above all what I enjoyed most was the excellent food. We've already booked for the next one - say no more!

We have been in this cafe during our summer holidays in Newcastle. Coffee was quite good and the food was excellent. Waitresses were attentive and we all felt very well at the cafe, we will return there if we repeat our summer in Newcastle!.

Having visited this cafe before during the day, I always wanted to try their evening bistro menu and I wasn't dissapointed. At the start of each month they offer a BYO menu and it was absolutely lovely and such good value for money. Very attentive staff and quirky decor. Must visit again soon.

We turned up early one day, before the cafe had properly opened, but were welcomed in nonetheless & made very welcome. Food very nice, welcome and service friendly & warm.

If you are heading to Newcastle this is my favourite spot for food any time of the day the staff are really lovely and the food is just great. I love the décor vintage with out being over the top.
