We visited early on a Sunday evening and found it to be very busy, this was not a problem for us as we enjoyed a drink at the bar whilst waiting for a table. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient. We chose to have the fixed price menu which was was very reasonably priced. The choice was good and... More

I recently visited fat olive with my partner, it was a last minute decision and haven't been since it had changed hands from le frog. When we arrived we booked in with the manager and was directed to have a drink at the bar before we sat, here we where served by very polite and cheerful bar staff. Once sat... More

Was a Sunday late afternoon, not many dinners when we arrived but started to pick up before we left. Staff very helpful but chief on the day found it difficult to adapt a dish for one of our party who could not have a creamy sauce. Overall a good experience.

Visited with two of my friends and waited 30 minutes before having to ask for someone to take our food order... The waiter then replied 'yeah I'll go get someone now' 10 minutes later our order was taken. Food was lovely when it arrived!

Been several times over the years, and if anything it is getting even better. When we visited in January in a large group the food was fantastic. All of the staff very helpful and obviously very well organised. We don't think twice when it comes to booking for family occasions and I look forward to our next visit.

We dined at Fat Olive to celebrate a birthday with 10 friends and can honestly say we couldn't have picked a better place for a group of us. We arrived slightly early so had drinks in the bar, there is a pub next door but not the kind of place to go dressed up as we found out when going... More

We've been coming to the Fat Olive once or twice a year for a few years now and every time we visit we are impressed with the high standard of food, good value for money and excellent service. We always leave having had a enjoyable and stress free time. As I work in the industry myself I can see how... More
