“Friendly intimate cosy atmosphere”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I suggested Olivas as 'somewhere new' to try out. Met a friend for lunch and wanted somewhere half-way between our locations. Was surprised at the al fresco route to the toilet, though the intimate bistro feel to the place made up for having to brave the English elements.

Enjoyed trying the fried black pudding dish, which was part of the tapas for two menu. The whitebait and calamari were cooked to perfection. Mushrooms a tad 'wet' for my liking, but on the whole – lovely.

The wonderfully optimistic mediterranean feel to this place includes a slim fully glazed front door to the right of the large window frontage. Finding your way in to this cosy deli is part of the challenge – don't say I didn't warn you ;)

Thankyou for your review
I see that our service was not of the standard compared to most of our reviews. If you have the time would you mind expanding. We would apreciate your feed back in order to improve.

Regards and Happy News Year

“Office Christmas Party”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Olivas hosted our office Christmas party. We filled the place with 18 people but the atmosphere was cosy and friendly. We enjoyed an evening of seemingly never ending tapas and wines.
The tapas include several seafood based dishes which really were the pick of the crop although the meat based dishes we were preferred by many of the party.

I highly recommend Olivas and will certainly visit again both to eat and to shop in the deli

“Painswick's Perfect Goodwill”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

I visited Painswick for the Goodwill evening which was quite perfect. The best part of the night was sitting outside Olivas - Christmas lights twinkling, carols playing, a buzz of people enjoying tapas inside, fire braziers burning outside, and being warmed by steaming hot chocolates. The Painswick Goodwill evening was the perfect start to Christmas.
