I have eaten here on a few occasions and always enjoyed it. Good food, great service and a lovely view. The one thing I would love the owners to fix is the lack of sound proofing. The first few times I went the restaurant wasn't full, it was early evening, however my most recent visit was a Saturday evening so... More

Olivettos Difficult to get a table here so that's indicative of its popularity. Well balanced menu. Essentially Italian. Booking advised.

This was simply amazing. The pizza isn't as you would expect. There is only very little dough used and a lot of fresh toppings.really loved it.Incredible size as well. It took me a good while to get through it. Also very good organic white wine. Costs for pizza around 15€

Went I Oliveto for a casual Thursday night meal with family and was really impressed with it. The restaurant itself has an amazing ambience and was so nice, even felt a little Christmassy with the fairy lights in the windows. I went whole hog with a three course meal. Started with the Misto Fritto, it was seafood in a tempura... More

For many years I have been visiting and enjoyed seeing the restaurant grow in popularity and character. However past 2 trips small problems are growing. Booked a birthday meal with family well in advance to secure a sea view table for them to lose the booking, they managed to seat us but yet when my partner want to place a... More

Matt Thanks for taking the trouble to review us on TA. We're going through a change over period after the Summer (staff changes) and our focus is very much on ensuring new staff offer a warm greeting, a professional efficient service and a sincere goodbye. Cleary, by your review, we've more intense training to undertake (and we will) but we... More

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
