It's hard to recommend one choice of food here - all we had was excellent! One particular recommendation is - try the tea! I'm not a great fan of small china cups but when you have piping hot tea served from a good teapot with a tea cosy it's a different matter. Each day we were here it was solid... More

I frequent Olive Bizarre quite a bit & it's always busy. On a nice day a table outside with a sea view is perfect. They provide a bowl of water for four legged friends. Their menu is varied but their 'specials' are usually worth trying. They run a Bistro night on the first Friday & Saturday of each month and... More

We spent the weekend in Newcastle and had to try this place, (my mum and dad go every weekend) it was lovely and quaint really nice menu, and great cheerful service (which is hard to find these days). And .....the toilets.... Well they are worth a visit in themselves!!! Highly recommend!! Maybe get a fly zapper in the warmer weather...

Description
Olive Bizarre is a delicious little spot in the harbour area of the town. You can enjoy exquisite teas/coffees with goodies galore and a view to die for. Our afternoon tea is highly recommended and our traybakes and scones will not fail to please. We have a vast range of savoury dishes and provide an array of gluten free and vegetarian foods. Our child friendly policy is also popular and to top it all our friendly team will make you feel very welcome. See you soon. John and Ciaraxox
