We have recently had two meals here, which were both of excellent quality, and were would certainly recommend this superb Greek restaurant. One word of warning though, they only take cash payments.

Have eaten at his restaurant a number of times. The kleftiko is simply exquisite. The staff are friendly and were flexible in amending meals when requested. Have eaten in several restaurants in Aberystwyth and this is my favourite.

Situated on the promenade opposite the Royal Pier the Olive Branch is well worth a visit. The range of dishes offered was compressive without being overwhelming. I had the Chicken with Ouzo which was superb, beautifully cooked with subtle flavours. Our visit was a little tarnished by the presence of a group with very rowdy children, in fact I have... More

2 recent meals, good food, , the Moussaka is outstanding, best to book as full on Fridays and Saturdays, nice relaxed atmosphere, their fresh bread is worth paying for, I will come again. Payment is cash only, but not expensive, and wine was to die for. One snag is no ground floor loo, for mobility restricted like me.

Went for an evening meal with a friend, very nice! Ordered Falafel and the garlic Mushrooms, would advise to order bread with the mushrooms as they are very saucy. Then we both had Souvlaki. A generous portion, very tasty, with rice, potatoes and fresh salad. Unfortunately we were too full for a pud! Would definitely go again.

First time our granddaughters had a Greek meal and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The decor was a bit tired, but the staff were friendly and the food very good. Unfortunately, they did not have any Retsina wine, so we ordered the house Merlot which they also did not have, but were given an excellent Rioja in its place.

Ive had two different starters... More

A little quiet when we visited today but great service and great food. Tried the full english, no doubt their Greek food is of a similar standard. Only one nitpick, there were no straws in the glasses. Apart from that, amazing!
