The restaurant is very good, tasteful and not so expensive. The size of the meal is normal. I recommend it if you are around this area.

I have visited three times trying different tapas each time. Each was tasty and filling. Staff are great, attentive but not pushy. Tuesday evening deal is particularly good value.

Small intimate setting with candles, lovely food and good service. Visited whilst on a shopping trip to Chester but would definitely visit again if lived locally.

I had the belly pork as a starter (actually on their Tapas list) followed by lamb done in Harissa (?) and Moroccan (?) sauce/gravy with rice and other assorted bits and bobs. Both the pork and the lamb were exquisite! The Spanish white wine also went down a treat. I heard the restaurant is to be under new ownership soon...the... More

Had dinner with my wife here last month. The service, ambiance and the food were outstanding. The flavors the chef gets from his ingredients is amazing. Will be returning.

Booked the shared olive as it was close to our hotel. We had the tapas and it was fantastic. The flatbread and houmous was the nicest I've ever had and the tapas was delicious. Staff were friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back.

Stayed in Hawarden for a week and ate at the Shared Olive twice. The food is amazing and all the staff are friendly and helpful, also attentive but not overly so and in your face the whole time. It got very busy on one visit but the service did not suffer at all. We will definately go back when we... More
