Highly recommended. Creative and wonderful food and beverages. The staff is extremely nice and professional. You know they really care - and are not there just doing a job. The only challenge is to get a table on weekends, you'll need to reserve in advance....More

My wife and I ate at Oleana’s in Cambridge, as it had good reviews on Trip Advisor, was a short walk from our accommodation (and recommended by the landlord) and because Oleana’s presents itself as a Turkish and Eastern Mediterranean restaurant. We love Turkish and...More

One of the best (if not the best) restaurants in Cambridge. Order the warm buttered hummus, the fatoush, and the sultan’s delight! The best dessert is in the picture!
