“Food Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We visited Oliver's Restaurant in February 2013 and we were not disappointed one bit.
We received a lovely warm welcome from the front of house and the service we received throughout the evening was top notch.
NOW.... THE FOOD... we thought we had arrived in Food Heaven!!
I chose the goats cheese roulade to start with and my husband chose the scallops, they were cooked to perfection.
For the mains I chose the duck with truffle sauce which melted in the mouth, my husband had "The Pig" which was a trio of pork tenderly cooked, in fact my husband says it was the best pork dish he had ever tasted. The mains were accompanied by roasted vegetables with fantastic flavours. Presatation was perfect.
We hardly had room for desert but the menu was too tempting. We decided to share a banana brioche with a hot peanut butter and salted caramel sauce with a massive dollop of homemade caramel ice cream placed right on top!! Delicious!!
I am sorry Oliver's if I have not written the correct names of the dishes but all I can say is... Thank you for such a unforgettable dining experience, it truly felt like each dish was made with love & passion for food.
If you get the chance take a trip to Oliver's you will think you've arrived in Food Heaven :)

“Great to have a top quality restaurant in the Macc area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Great service, delicious food. We had a great evening and agreed with the very positive reviews here.
Although it was excellent, some things could be even better: we found the food quite heavily salted (to be honest we often find this in really good restaurants - seems to be a habit of good chefs), although this helped bring out the flavours it tends to lead to a thirsty night's sleep especially combined with a few drinks. Secondly the wine list is a bit limited (fair enough - they don't have a lot of space here). Lastly it was pricy, but it was also popular so they can afford to charge a decent price. Maybe if a couple more restaurants of this standard sprung up round here they would need to compete more on price, but as things stand there's nowhere I know in this area that's operating at this level of cooking. All in all we had a great night and will be back, but we'd go back a lot sooner if it had been 20-30% cheaper.

“80th Birthday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Booked the restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor and spoke to the manageress who was very helpful in organising a menu as normally at lunchtime its just light bites!. It was for close family including 2 children and a baby and when we arrived the table was set up including the high chair. We had placed our order in advance as we were using the evening menu at lunchtime. The staff were very friendly and the food was beautifully served and they did a baby portion for the youngest which was wolfed down. The restaurant is small and nicely decorated and the facilities are very smart. It was a very enjoyable meal had by all!

“Better - and better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Six of us visited this lovely small restaurant last Friday - the first time for two in the party, but a return trip for the rest of us. We had a delightful evening - excellent food, beautifully presented, and with no long waits between courses. This restaurant is certainly riding on the crest of the wave! Long may it continue to do so.
