“Great service, great food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Just recently went for food in The Olive Tree. Tapas menu was excellent. The waiter James was fantastic very friendly and really appeared to love his job!! Couldn't say enough good things about this restaurant. Very reasonable prices too. All dishes we tried were fantastic - calamari, prawns, beef skewers, lentil stew and garlic potato cubes!! We were contemplating the nachos/tacos and were raging we didn't get them when we seen them going to another table!! Would def go back there and will recommend it to anyone who goes to Waterford.

“Food & Service Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Having been to Spain and enjoyed the experience of Tapas in genuine tapas bars it is always hard to find the same atmosphere and food outside Spain. However The Olive Tree has captured both. The food and service are excellent and the atmosphere inside the restaurant is relaxed thus providing you with a very enjoyable experience. The staff are very knowledgeable and always have time to discuss each of the dishes and selection of wines on offer. I would highly recommend the Olive Tree to any one looking for a great place to eat in a relaxed atmosphere.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

The patatas bravas and the Churros are excellent, as is the banter with the great waiting staff. I have been twice, once with the family and kids and once as a couple, and I have had a great time both times. Good wine selection and reasonably priced for great food!

My wife and I had a lovely evening in the olive tree recently while visiting Waterford marina, the food and wine was great. The staff are fantastic, very friendly and great for advice on all the dishes and wine selection. We will definitely be eating there again when next in Waterford. Highly recommend the Olive Tree to any one looking for a great place to eat in a relaxed atmosphere.
