Excellent from start to finish.

The reviews don't lie about this place, it really is an excellent restaurant. My starter of beef tomatoes and mozzarella was beautifully presented, fresh and tasty, but the steak was probably the very best beef steak I've ever had in my life. The staff can't do enough for you, too. We are more than... read more

We have been in Windermere and tried a couple of restaurants, each were fab, but none of them can top this fabulous place. Each time we passed we saw it was busy, but tonight we managed to get in. Lovely staff and lovely food, for a reasonable price. X

Had our evening meal here on Saturday night, nice restaurant with good atmosphere and friendly staff. Food was freshly cooked and good quality, Mediterranean influence but definitely something for everyone, hot bread and dips starter was lovely.

Having just returned from a lovely couple of days in Bowness on Windermere, I felt obliged to write a small thank you to Shirley and Gary from Fat Olives. The food was fantastic and the prices of the drinks are great value. My wife had a beautiful vegetarian dish whilst I had their infamous sticky ribs, which where cooked to... More

We enjoyed an early evening meal at Fat Olives. They offered a deal that included a meal and cinema ticket (the cinema is across the road) which was good value for money and obviously very popular. Very tasty food, good service and a lively and pleasant atmosphere.
