Olive tree is a very nice cafe cum bistro by the canal in Bude. Very good coffee. I think the dinner menu is the best offering - always fresh local produce, nicely cooked. Fresh local fish always features somewhere. Risottos have been reliably good. Reasonably priced for the quality.

This restaurant is capable of some lovely meals and is reasonably priced too. However, the coffees are the most memorable and I like the addition of the almond biscuits!

Went in during the week and ended up sitting outside next to the canal as it was very hot inside. We drank a lovely bottle of rioja with a really fresh and tasty meal. The brushetta with Cornish brie was a nice variation and the grilled mackerel with horseradish was really light and refreshing. For mains we had the flat... More

Went for an evening meal whilst on holiday in Cornwall. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Delicious food and welcoming staff.

We decided to dine here during a recent stay in Bude. The food was very very nice, fresh ingredients and really subtle flavours. However, with about a quarter of my food to still eat, I bit into a piece of glass! It looked like a chunk that had broken off the rim of a wine glass and was approx 1cm... More

We were staying near Bude and this was one of the restaurants suggested by our B&B owners. We arrived for a 7.15 reservation and were glad that we had booked, as all the other unoccupied tables also had reserved signs. We decided to skip starters and went straight for the mains: steak and flatfish. The steak was cooked exactly as... More

Great service and good fresh food. Fish and chips were very good and the crab sandwich was excellent. Dogs allowed outside, which is good. Good views next to the canal.
