Best Restaurant in Great Yarmouth

We have been dining at The Olive Garden for many years and it remains our personal favourite. Some times it is best to keep quiet and not let everyone else know about a gem such as The Olive Garden, that way you stand a better chance of securing a table and avoiding disappointment, but there are... read more

I ordered asparagus & mushroom risotto which came on a large plate with 4 slices of flatbread & a side salad.The flatbread & salad had a strong taste of oil which wasn't very pleasant. I also thought the extras were unnecessary... More

Service was excellent even though it was very busy on a Tuesday night. The food was excellent and the children's menu the best I have ever seen. And very generous portions. My only regret is that we only went here on our last night. Amazing value. You absolutely must visit this restaurant if you are in the area. Very special... More

Glad they did as they seemed to have some large bookings and a full service for a Tues evening. Friendly staff with helpful advice and... More

We stayed in Yarmouth for three nights and were looking for a change from pub food and fish and chips. Our B and B owners recommended the Olive Garden and we weren't disappointed. Excellent service, lovely atmosphere and the food was very nice.
