Amazing restaurant, Great, quality Greek food with a homemade feeling. It is real food, much better than typical restaurant chains. Evidently, high standard food ingredients are used. It is not cheap, but the quality makes it more than worth it. The staff are great, they...always take extremely good care of us (both dine in and home delivery - at present, due to lockdown). Most importantly, they make us feel welcome. Can't wait to order again.More

The Orzo with tomato and prawns (kritharoto garida saganaki) tasted like badly made student food. Seemed like some orzo was thrown into a can of tomatoes with boiled prawns. So not worth a takeaway.

We haven't had souvlaki in such a long time, and this definitely satisfied our craving! My partner is Greek and even he said this was a 10/10! We ordered directly from the website, and it came within 45 minutes, still hot and bursting with flavour!...We normally go to Gardenia, but will definitely be considering The Olive Grove as our new Greek favourite!!! Delicious!! Thank you!!More

One of the friendliest restaurants in Cambridge, with great service and beautiful food. My partner and I have been maybe 5 times and are always looked after and welcomed like we’ve been there 100 times. The staff are friendly and chatty and the food is...beautifulMore

We stopped here for a late lunch. It was perfect. Staff were friendly and professional and the food delicious. We shared the smoked aubergine for starters (phenomenal) then both had a souvlaki which was really tasty. Only bad part is that we don't live closer.

Brilliant atmosphere for a Thursday night and under current circumstances. Covid-compliant service whilst still retaining a welcoming amicability. Very relaxed vibe but waiters were attentive and keen to elaborate on any uncertainties/questions we had. We ordered the tagine, kofta souvlaki and the saganaki; it was...so good we all simultaneously were jealous of each others' food whilst fiercely guarding our own! Generous (but not overwhelming) portions of good, wholesome food...and it didn't stick around for long. Will definitely be coming back to explore the menu further; in the meantime the home delivery service looks very tempting. Thank you for a lovely night!More

Jack was incredibly welcoming and friendly from start to finish. Food was amazing - Calamari was great portion and I had a falafel wrap, and partner had lamb shank. We loved our food - and it came with a nice atmosphere and very friendly service....Definitely worth a visit if you are in Cambridge !!! Simply excellent.

The restaurant will be able to order you one- or perhaps try Camcab’s?
