Despite the dreadful weather we had a very warm welcome and attentive but not overbearing service. The jug of promptly delivered Sangria was delicious and then we started the food. Loved the almond and sunflower dip, not sure about the very English (but very fresh and delicious) bread or the hot dip. But then the tapas began arriving, calamari, meatballs, and the most divine little spinach pies I've ever tasted to name but a few. I just loved the whole sharing thing and the portion sizes were just right. Les Olives had a great buzz, I wouldn't choose it for a quiet intimate romantic meal but it was fab for a different and yummy meal out with friends or family. The Espresso with a shot of brandy was genius!

We had a works get together and were in the 'room' beside the main reastaurant but this didn't detract form the service we received at all. Food was great - loved the broad been dip especially and the squid and meatball tapas were as good as I've had in Spain!

All in all a great place to eat and be entertained by the guitarist - next tiem a table for 2 with my wife!

As per all the other reviews, this restaurant is one of the best. The Tapas is not the traditional size you would get in Spain, it's more like twice the size, one dish is good for two.

I have never been to Northampton in my life, my son is there now, so I have two good reasons to return.

Salud.

First time at a Tapas restaurant, thought the food was delicious and the service great. There is a large variety of dishes on offer and plenty for fish eaters and vegetarians.

In keeping with Spanish restaurants, they don't really do desserts well but the coffee is nice and plenty of decent wine on offer.
