A great night out

A group of 10 of us visited on Saturday night for a friend's birthday celebration. We had drinks - some had beers and some cocktails - in the lounge area before being seated towards the back of the restaurant. There is a good selection on the menu for vegetarians and it was difficult to decide... read more

I hadn't been to "The Olives" for ages, but I went with a girlfriend a few weeks ago. To be honest, because our usual rendezvous was booked up. I was pleasantly surprised; although it was very empty for a Wednesday evening. Too quiet really. We were very well looked after, almost over-attentively (if that is possible...'cos it was so quiet)... More

We visited Olives one Saturday evening in January. We rang up and booked for the table on the day we wanted to go. We had a long wait for our food and I found it to be overpriced. The waiter was friendly and the food tasted nice. The restaurant was clean.

Third visit to the Olives in recent months..this time for Sunday lunch with family members. We were seated towards the back of the room near the kitchen and have to say we were not very warm. Anyway we all ordered the Sunday lunch from the set menu and as usual the host was overly enthusiastic. The food was average but... More

Me and my partner thought we'd try here on an off chance. The food was beautiful and it was so nice to have Mediterranean food for a change. Very tasty! Presentation was excellent! The restaurant is very nice too. We haven't returned yet it was quite quiet when we went and the atmosphere wasn't the best. Maybe that's why we... More

A collegue and I met for a meeting, and we needed to find a place to eat in the evening, and we stumbled on the goldmine! The staff we friendly, and the lady at front of house couldn't have been more helpful. Unfortunately the scallops were off the menu for starters, but there were plenty of other great starters. See...

Fairly late booking close to Christmas so we could only get an early evening booking for our party of 6 but it was soon very lively. Great atmosphere. The food was perfect. Nicest meal I've had out for ages. Would really recommend.
