We were at the Haddington Hotel for a wedding. The food for the wedding was outstanding so the following day when we needed to get some lunch before heading home, we decided to try the restaurant. The food was well priced and portions generous. Service is attentive and the children were well catered for. Further to this the views over... More

Busy buzzy atmosphere, Sunday evening around 6.00pm. Good varied Italian menu with a few Irish variables on Italian theme. Staff attentive even though a busy time. Quite a few families with young kids, a bit noisy, but to be fair it was early evening on a Sunday. Probably a bit less frenetic after 7.00 or so. Gorgeous views from windows... More

This was my second and last visit to Oliveto, yesterday evening with my sister visiting from abroad, and my elderly Mum. It was such an unpleasant experience that I am for the first time submitting a review. To begin with we were greeted in such a brusque manner by some guy (who didn't introduce himself or even smile) - very... More

Alan No excuse offered as we simply gave you terrible service from the start to the end. I set up this restaurant in frustration of the poor service in the industry and am deeply upset by how you were hosted this week. It goes against everything I stand for. I would love an opportunity to reverse your experience as it... More

The food here was delicious. The service was good enough, we were a big group so it was tough for them to continually check in. The menu is a bit limited, but all the dishes we tried were very good. The pizzas were delicious. The only negative is that it is a bit noisy, I had a hard time hearing... More

The baked monkfish was delicious but the ice cream was fantastic, creamy vanilla and fruity strawberry. My colleagues had the lamb which looked delicious and the mushroom risotto which they said was superb. The service was faultless a really good restaurant.

We were just finishing up a 2 week tour of Ireland and was tired of stews and fish and chips. Wanted something different and what a pleasant surprise this place was. Just 2 blocks from our hotel. My husband had their pizza special and raved about it. I had a seafood risotto that was out of this world. Would definitely... More

We had a birthday dinner with family and friends in The Library Bar. The room and setting is lovely, and the staff, particularly Niamh, Adrian and Nicki on the night were extremely helpful, efficient and discreet. The food was super, the starter of tagliere boards and mains of lamb or monkfish were just perfect. Service was exemplary throughout, and all... More

Love the style and ambience of this restaurant. Bruschetta to start followed by pizza. Suffice to say best pizza I have ever eaten in Ireland - thin crispy base with mouth watering toppings, panna cotta (nervana!) for afters all washed down with a beautiful chianti. The staff were very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful (special thanks to Tim)... More

I was meeting friends for dinner last night. One of our party has a serious injury at present and is unable to do steps. So I thought we would have to cancel but after a phone call they guided us down the back lane where she was able to enter on the flat. They couldn't have been nicer. Food was... More

I love this place! The pizzas are great as is the antipasti board. Good selection of wine and gorgeous in summer, sitting out in the beer garden. Inexpensive too for the quality. You do need to book weeks in advance though, and last minute bookings are rare which is annoying being a local as you need to plan but is... More
