Just had an impromptu night at the Olive Tree and have had an excellent early evening of great food and service in a warm and friendly atmosphere. King Prawns to start followed by sea bass, followed by an ice cold bottle of white wine. My wife and I managed to have an enjoyable evening as our 6 year old daughter was enjoying her meal and just enough attention from the staff, although my daughter only wanted penne with butter, our waiter finished it off with parmasan cheese to her taste.

Our meals where full of flavour and we have left left to return home happy content before seeing in the new year. Thanks for a lovely evening.

I went with a few friends here. They had a singer on singing Neil Diamonds hits. Not bad, he got everyone joining in and dancing. Everyone's starters were good, no complaints. The main course I would say was average. I had a lamb shank which I must admit I have tasted better,the potatoes were not cooked properly, it was not just mine, no one on the table ate the potatoes. The tables were a bit squashed together could have done with a bit more room.Desert was average. Service was quite good, considering how busy they were being Christmas time.

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking Manos and his excellant staff / team for making my birthday celebrations on Friday night special.
Nothing was too much trouble and as usual the service was outstanding. The whole ambiance along with the modern decor makes for a wonderful time. The Olive Tree has such friendly and helpful staff who always made you feel so welcome, which is why the journey from Hornchurch is so worth it! The food is exceptional and very reasonable. We have also sampled the breakfast and lunch menu and we just cannot praise the restaurant enough on the great quality of food.
Just wish we could have The Olive Tree in Hornchurch!
Keep up the good work and definitely see you soon!
