What a fantastic night! We booked for a Saturday evening and were taken straight to our table. Our group of four all enjoyed the wonderful food (the hummus is to die for), superb service and amazing ambience; the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I can honestly say that it is one of the best restaurants I have been to... More

Inventive and innovative cuisine. Everyone does their utmost to ensure very good service. Tapas are available as starters or mains and very tasty they are too. Wines to suit every palate and pocket--god that sounds so cheesy--but it's true! Parking can be a chore--but there's the station car park 200m away. Weekends will necessitate early ordering of tables, as the... More

Thought we'd give the Shared Olive a try last night after seeing the tripadvisor reviews. 3 of us dined and we started with nibbles of hummus, flat bread, and caramelised onion and mozzarella ciabatta. Described as nibbles, but portions are very generous and very yummy! We ordered tapas, 3 dishes each. The food was hot, well presented, absolutely delicious and... More

Came in a small group as a last minute booking. The restaurant was full and lively so the ambience was good. Customer service was good - the staff seemed genuinely interested in us, welcomed feedback and were efficiently attentive. Food is varied and interesting. Tapas was delicious, without exception, as were the mains and desserts. Much nicer than going to... More

Me and my partner visited for the valentines special, although there was nothing wrong with the meal it was nothing but average. The dishes where very simply and didn't really warrant the price tag. The service was very inconsistent, the beginning of the evening was very rushed and later-on suspended whilst members of staff stood around talking ignoring dirty plates... More

Hi Max_nrg I'll start with your issue with the price tag, we as a restaurant researched the competition in 'town', Chester, for Valentines Day menus, we were competitively priced and reasonable for the food served. When you booked both the menu and price were served as advertised. The menu put together for that evening was made with good quality produce... More
