We have been before and the food was good. We were very disappointed with both the food and the service today. The beef was overlooked and the pasta very dry. Both has been sitting for a while. We had to ask for extra vegetables as the portions on the plate were sparse and whilst they were provided it was made... More

Booked a table for Mother's Day, we were a large party. Had to wait 20 minutes for the table even with booking in advance. 1 menu between the whole party. Food mediocre, extremely small portions of vegetables. The young waiting on staff were pleasant but were let down by their arrogant manager who seemed more interested in drinking behind the... More

Went on spec and got a table but right at the back next to the stairs to the toilets, lovely view of a wall! The staff were all quite young and although friendly seemed very uptight and on their best behaviour. The food was ok nothing special and a bit boring as well as being overpriced for what it was....

What a brilliant night. Visited The Olives for the first time in a while and I won't be waiting that long again! I had bread and oils to start - chilli and orange zest oil was amazing and my wife had filo prawns which she loved. For my main course I had the seafood linguine which was as good as... More

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 what to eat. Having had... 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
