“Greek Fish and Chips in Bolton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The best fish and chips I have ever tasted. This is no cafe! It is a Greek fish and chip restaurant. Excellent service and surroundings. 10/10

“Best Fish & Chips in the North West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We eat at the Olympus at least once a week, and the service is always excellent, with very attentive staff who always go the extra mile (they like to help you put your coat on when you leave). The food is excellent and very good value for money, especially considering the 'posh' atmosphere they have created (there is often a live pianist playing at the back of the restaurant).

The deserts are also mouthwateringly delicious.

“The poshest chippy in Bolton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

My friends and I have been regulars at the Olympus Fish and Chip Restaurant for several years. We go back time and again for the great fish and chips, excellent service and friendly atmosphere.

Over the last twenty or so years the Olympus has expanded and been refurbished to the highest standard. Fixtures and fittings are modern and stylish, especially in the loos. As the floorspace has increased, so has the number of customers and the place is always busy. But the family who own it have never lost sight of how to treat their customers. You are greeted warmly, shown to your table, helped with your coat etc and given the menu. Once ordered, your food arrives quickly and the waiters always check to see that all is well. On some days there is a pianist at the grand piano, at other times recorded music is played at just the right volume.

The menu of course is fish, chips and mushy peas, but also includes pies, chicken, salads etc. Wine and beer are also available. It's great for a workday lunchtime treat and since extending its opening times, ideal for a pre-theatre meal.

You can get take away fish and chips at the adjoining shop if you don't want to eat in.

“The best fish and chip restaurant I have eaten in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The food is excellent, always freshly prepared, hot and served quickly. It is perfectly cooked, and always served by polite and friendly waiters. it is not too expensive and the lunch includes a drink and bread.
The surroundings are newly refurbished and a pleasure to eat in. It is very clean, warm, and it is difficult to fault it

“amazing for Bolton Town Centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

An oasis in the middle of a rundown town centre. Each time we have visited there has been a very professional sounding pianist playing classical music as you eat your 6 out of 10 fish and chips and delicious home made puddings. Very good value....and the toilets well like a 5 star Marriott!!
