Fantastic food, staff very friendly. We were lucky to get a table as we had not booked. Main meals were very tasty and well worth the money. I have only given it 4* as I felt the sharing platter starter was a bit overpriced. I will be back, however, and will have a different starter next time.

In Great Yarmouth for the evening and was recommended The Olive Garden. It was a Saturday evening we hadn't booked but were offered a table that was booked for 8.30, we were more than happy to accept this. We had a starter and a main course, we didn't feel rushed or pressurised to hurry our meal in any way. Fantastic... More

Decided to go for a Saturday night meal, booked in advance, which is a MUST. Easy to find and it probably can support about 50 covers. Nice ambiance and staff were welcoming. Menu has some great choices and all are very reasonably priced. We would definitely go back again.

Very good restaurant. Great value for money. We arrived at 6.30pm on a Thursday evening and before 7pm they have a special with plenty of choice. We opted for it. Peroni on draught and the house wine was good value. Busy and excellent atmosphere with soft easy to listen to music and friendly staff.

Came here for a last minute meal at the end of 2015 and had a lovely experience. The staff were very polite and couldn't do enough to make you feel welcomed. The food was delicious and well worth the money. Will definitely be returning in 2016.

I dined at this restaurant for a birthday meal in December and it was great. Atmosphere was great, seating for two was spacious and servers were attentive. We both had steaks which were the best I have ever had. Everything was cooked to perfection.
