“Lovely little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Went for the tapas evening. Lovely place, nice atmosphere. Staff were great. Food very good, did come out slowly but that made a night of it (and how tapas should be!) Could take your own wine - always good! Loved it. Will definitely go in daytime as menu looks very good value.

“Good for lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Many choices of lunch baguettes etc served in a relaxed atmosphere by friendly staff. Very good value at £7.50 for 2 for lunch!!!!! Quieter than chain restaurants and much more variety.

“Great indie cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Just had a great full English at 4.50 in this quirky cafe. Great value and standard of food. Don't bother with a hotel breakfast from the many hotels around here. Come and get a breakfast served to you with great coffee.

“Escapees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We are a group of six ladies who meet six times each year at various restaurants in Nottingham and the surrounding area.
Our first visit to the Olive Tree was via a 'Groupon' deal, (tapas, pudding and coffee) and will certainly not be our last!
The staff were welcoming and the service fantastic. The range of tapas was amazing and just kept coming - all served freshly cooked and piping hot where necessary.
We enjoyed our visit so much we left a 50% tip to compensate for our Groupon Voucher.
The lunchtime menu and selections of ciabatta, baguattes, rolls,pitta, salads, hot dishes (eat in or takeaway) goes on forever.
We would highly recommend this restaurant
