“Great Food, Service and Atmosphere a MUST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

First time at Fat Olives on 3rd Jan, we had a lovely, meal shared starter of vegetables in tempura batter with dips......mmmmm very nice.
Followed by whole king prawns for me an black bream for my wife both lovely meals again finished off by an assiette of sweets, tangy lemon cheese cake, creme brûlée, and sticky toffee pudding!
Liked it so much we went back the next night and had another superb meal!!
Go you will not be disappointed!

“Excellent food and service every time!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We have visited Fat Olives 4 or 5 times in both large and small parties and every time everything has been perfect! The food is second to none and service is excellent! You MUST check out the daily specials board for fab unusual dishes!!! starter platters for 2 are an excellent option and always delicious we shared one between 3 and there was plenty to go around! I can recommend the steak with blue cheese sauce and also the chicken in black pepper won a bed of tomato sauce with chorizo and black pudding!! Never had any room for dessert so cannot comment on them!! However they look good! 5 stars every time for this mediterranean kitchen!
