Love the food in this place. I've only been twice and once was accidentally on its very bizarre 'Psychic night'. The food is great and the prices are fair with Tastecard being accepted too! The restaurant itself is a little claustrophobic. The low ceiling and the fact that they always keep all the blinds closed makes it dark which could... More

This is the second time we have visited. The food was very nice and the restaurant was very clean. The only isssue was the service was really slow this time.

A friend & I had tea at the Olives on a Friday night. The restaurant was fairly busy but not as busy as other places in Stone. The service from the manager was excellent but the other staff appeared a little miserable... We both ordered kebabs but my chicken kebabs arrived as 3 pieces of flattened chicken with no vege...

We went for Sunday lunch here for the first time this week and as expected the food was excellent. There were a few choices for starter but we both had home made carrot and coriander soup and it was probably the best one I have tasted. We both had the beef for main (other option was turkey) which came with,... More

My first time eating at Olives and I was pleasantly surprised - a group of 8 of us were greeted by friendly staff and seated quickly. Food is beautiful ( I recommend the seafood linguini ) and atmosphere is lovely - all for a very reasonable price! Will definitely be going back to try the tapas!!

Staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was divine. Pork with peppercorn/stilton sauce was great and the roasted veg it came with was beautiful, completely cleared my plate. Very good value for money and I would definitely visit again.
