We ate here on the Cinema and dinner deal. Food is good basic stuff, served nice and hot! Gets very busy during early evening. Probably better to book in advance.

Just popped in for something to eat as we wandered past and were made most welcome. They do a deal with the cinema across the way if you have a ticket there. Decor was intriguingly simple yet enigmatic. Nice and clean and tidy, good food at reasonable price and although it was early and not very busy when we arrived,... More

Another very good meal. Called in before 19:00 and had the early menu £8.95 for a main course pasta. Pasta and fish are a no no for me but on the suggestion of the waitress I had the salmon and crayfish pasta dish and now it is my favourite pasta dish.

Having previously eaten at Fat Olives we called in without booking and although they were busy they found us a table. There were only two waitresses on and they worked their socks off to keep all diners happy. The food was excellent and service with a smile. What more could you want?

A small restaurant with a warm welcome and staff who are helpful without being "pushy". What more would you want? Maybe good food at a decent price? Here it is! Maybe a deal with the Cinema across the road - offering a cheap and Cinema ticket deal, either before or after one of the showings of three different films? Here... More

We booked for the meal and cinema ticket deal here. The food and service were very good. Followed by a visit to the Royalty Cinema over the road. (reviewed separately)

Had a wonderful meal here with my fiancée. The food was all perfect and very delicious. I had the ribs to start, and they were perfect. The meat was so well cooked that it just fell off the bone. The sauce was different from anything I had before but this is not a negative as it was most delicious. For... More

We ate at Fat Olives on the Wed 12th of Oct. We'd looked at a few restaurants around Bowness and came across Fat Olives. Being Vegetarian Fat Olives offered us the largest choice on menu & on the specials board. We were not disappointed. The mixed tempura vegetarian platter for 2 was a great starter to get our taste buds... More
