We had an enjoyable evening for a friend's retirement meal, 40 of us altogether. The restaurant was warm, friendly with a good atmosphere and the staff were very efficient, serving everyone's meals within a short time. We had two courses for £12.95 which was great value.

I know most places will be for Xmas do's however they did seem to squash too many of us in to the place, we were like sardines in a tin! Also the choice... More

We arrived and were left hanging around in very small area. When eventually sat down at our pre booked table of 20ppl it was positioned so far up to the kitchen I was knocked by the server every time they went past . There was no waitress to speak of no one really spoke to us are pre ordered meals... More

!As always the menu, food, service and ambience - all excellent. However The Fat Olive has surpassed many restaurants by offering 2 and 3 course meal deals up to 7pm on Saturday evenings. Obviously you do need to book!

Came here for a get together with mine and my boyfriends family after a tiring day at the Southport airshow. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced, even though the resturant was very busy the food came out very quickly and the staff were very friendly. Wanting to come back very soon!
