We visited on the first night of our weekend break in April. Lovely food at a reasonable price. Very intimate setting which we liked. Would definitely go again if in the area.

I visited the olive room with my partner while we were holidaying in Ilracombe. The restaurant was lovely. We're both vegetarian and there were good vegetarian choices. The service was friendly and the restaurant itself was decorated stylishly. Recommended.

It was Caribbean themed week when we ate at The Olive Room. I've not been to the Caribbean so can't vouch for the authenticity of the food, but can vouch for its great taste. It is a small restaurant and has a nice, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.

Could not believe our luck to get a table. The 2 children loved the food and I was able to have the most delicious meal I have had for a long time. Very friendly. Delightful.

We had a lovely meal here with friendly, helpful service. My husband had one of the best chicken dishes he has tasted. As a veggie, I am often disappointed but here I had a really delicious meal.
