“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We came here for a birthday celebration and opted for the tasting menu, which was lovely. Service was prompt and the staff friendly, it is definitely one of the best restaurants in Bath.

“Simply superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Wonderful food, good service, superb ambience. I would highly recommend this restaurant, just a short walk from the city centre in Bath and very near the Assembly Rooms.

“Great Food, excellent service at the Olive Tree”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The food at the Olive Tree was excellent, service was also fantastic and a touch of class (they bought us out a small dessert for our 10 year anniversary despite not being prompted)

The restaurant itself lacks a little bit of something in terms of ambience but that was our only slight negative in what was an excellent experience.

“Great food! Should be better known!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We ate here because a friend was staying at the hotel. We know Bath well but had never been here. Our expectations were sort of in the middle. In the end, I can say that the meal was wonderful! What must be mentioned is that the food is delicious and tasty. The quail was perfectly seared and juicy. The venison and jerusalem artichoke was creamy and autumnal. The pistachio mousse was addictive. All of us were licking our plates and, at the end of the tasting menu, and we were quite satisfied with the amount of food.

The level of detail, presentation, the quality of the food here is excellent.
