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.

We went to the Olives on a cold winters day for a Sunday lunch. First impressions, the restaurant appeared to be unheated. We all ordered the set 3 course Sunday lunch. My first course was pate _ I have never seen such a small piece of pate and butter served on a plate, the cook was obviously stretching her provisions... More

It would be good to give an opinion on the decor service and food but I can't. Why because it was closed. We booked a table for Friday 7 November and my son even received a call on his mobile on the Wednesday before from the restaurant to confirm that we were still going. We booked a taxi to Stone...

We went as a large party and we were sat at a table together which was good. The staff were excellent. Always professional and polite. Unfortunately the food was good but lacking in what I would call the normal things expected on your plate. I hah the salmon linguine and it was tasty, my partner had chicken and mash and... More
