This was our third visit, the first time we have been for the set Sunday lunch menu! The food was good, starters of roast pepper and tomato soup were excellent, we all opted for the lamb main course, the lamb for us initially was undercooked but I would expect to many others would be fine! I asked for them to... More

We had an early dinner here this Friday evening, the main meal menu was not very exciting. Three of our party had a pasta meal which I could have cooked at home a lot cheaper than £10 a plate, it was pasta in a tomato sauce with quartered tomatoes and cheese balls on the top with four blobs of pesto!...

The three of us had an early dinner here prior to heading on to Theatr Cymru. Started off with olives, houmous and bread and then had risotto and a couple of tapas dishes. Tapas are £4 each on a Tuesday which is very reasonable. All very delicious and served by pleasant staff. Los Amigos entertainment was very nice. Very good... More

The Shared Olive in Hawarden offers a delicious little taste of the Mediterranean in the small village of Hawarden. With the only other eateries in Hawarden being pubs this is a welcome change. Whilst the pubs in Hawarden produce some good food the Shared Olive just has that extra bit of quality for similar prices. The menu was was interesting... More

This used to be a Swiss place, and then it was 'The Brasserie' (which was a frequent award winner at local Food events) and now it's the Shared Olive (and has been for a few years). This Mediterranean restaurant's menu is mainly comprised of Spanish-style dishes; namely tapas and paella. I've always enjoyed the food and would say the paella... More

We've been twice now in the last few weeks and it's been superb. We've had the three course set menu for £10 and you'd normally expect to get what you pay for but not here. It really is a bargain. The food is brilliant and the staff are equally superb. I can't recommend it enough.
