“Lovely little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Had dinner in Fat Olives on a Friday night and found it to be a really lovely place. Excellent food, bruschetta was fantastic, and the prices aren't bad either.

“Good value good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Stopped here by chance after car problems. A happy discovery. Friendly service and good value well cooked food. My steak and chips was excellent. My wife had the fish cakes which had just the right tang of smoked fish and a deliciously orang-y orange cake for dessert. We will be returning.
