“Nice restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Ate here a few times during our holiday. Could not fault the food or the service. The place could do with being bigger as most nights was full and turning people away which is a shame.

Hello very easy for me to be defensive perhaps question how you were feeling that day wether drink had a negative affect upon your review or your timelines etc but ill keep it professional....
We are not and never have been a fast food operation..that of course is burger king !
We seat 48 people some days it gets busy other days its chocker....when quiet at times we obviously serve food faster that at other times when say 4/5tables arrive at once .we normally say ere will be a delay. We put over the road to wait when at times there may be say 11 arrivals !
We cook fresh to order so we cannot possibly speed up or serve quicker without affecting the product prsentation or quality .
We serve tables in order as everywhere in the world ..waiting times are discussed on the door.
Im a bit miffed at the throwing bill comment as we served your bill and the card machine at the table
You left saying all was fine ?

“overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Service was very slow here, waited 35 minutes for food and it was only burger and pizza. The "homemade" pizza was like it had come out of a box from the deep freeze and tasted terrible. The burger was nothing special either and was just adequate. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

Our rustic pizzas are made locally by an Italianand delivered fresh every morning. We add toppings to order.burgers are 100 0/0 beef we havesold them for years and the feedback has been great..they are 220 grams and cooked fresh to order ...not in 4 mins of course !
35 minutes in Spain in a busy restaurant id say is commonplace and not out of the ordinary.

Unfortunately looking at your other re iews it appears you had a few unhappy experiences resulting in a terrible holiday..im sorry for that

“Service was good. Food was average. Would not rank it #2”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We went for lunch to Oliver's restaurant. The customer service was friendly and the food was relatively quick, but the food was only average. It was good compared to most places in Salou but restaurants in salou do not set a high bar for food quality

Hello Leanne
Thanks for your review ,
Im glad you took some positives out of your trip to Olivers we employ friendly couteous staff and have invested in good quality trained chefs
Im afraid due to the import system of whats available etc we can only provide the food using the best thats available to us.
Over the past couple of years we have recieved great accolades from others all trying our foods from oven baked cod,traditional fish and chips to steak flame grilled
We hope after trying a range of different restaurants in Salou that the next time you will not hesitate to visit again
Cheers Mark

“Not sure how its so highly rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We visited for lunch one afternoon during our holiday in May. The place was empty but the guy who approached us whilst looking at the outside menu was quite friendly & chatty. Went to great lengths to tell us everything was home made and there's was nothing frozen, etc. We had already went looking for this place on the recommendation of tripadvisors users so were going in anyway.
The food was pretty average fare, nothing special or outstanding just your bog standard pub grub that you'd get in a Brewers Fayre/Table Table/Harvester over in the UK. The mash on the kids meals did look home made, not from powder but the chips on mine & my wifes meals looked like they were frozen/oven chips.
If you're in the area then its probably worth a visit, wouldnt go specifically hunting it out though.

Thanks for your review yes your correct the mash made everyday..in fact i do it personally every lunchtime !
Our chunky steakhouse chips are top quality the best we can get here but indeed frozen.
Tried the fresh par fry fry chips not only occasionally soggy in relation to turn over but they are impractical when you do the turnover we do especially for a restaurant our size .
We dont advertise fresh chips aint got the space

Cheers again
