I've been going to the Green Olive in Windsor for a while now and quite simply it is the best restaurant in the area by a country mile. I never normally write reviews but felt compelled to comment on a fantastic evening I had there over the Ascot Week. Arrived a little late, but not a problem, the staff were friendly, assertive and nothing was too much trouble despite how busy it was. The atmosphere is always great there but due to it being Ascot it was a little more special. The food is first class - must try the lamb shank!

All in all, a faultless night, would definitely return - the little touches made the whole evening a night to remember.

High quality food in a rather average setting. Towards the end of the Windsor Castle Road, bit difficult to find. Warm welcome and great service, a little bar to have a drink before the meal. The choices on the menu are fine, although a bit limited. Not sure if the menu changes over time ... Good place for a larger group, meals are easy to share. Nice choice of vegetarian food available.

As we were staying in Windsor following a day at Royal Ascot I decided to read a few reviews and book a restaurant in advance, expecting it to be busy. Other reviews for The Green Olive were good and they had an online booking system so I booked a table for 4. Very glad i did. Service was excellent and the food was great and all at a reasonable price considering its on Windsor high street. Everyone was pleased with what they ordered. We're planning on making a day at the races an annual event for us and will definitely be booking to eat here again.

We visited Green Olive, due to other reviews on Trip advisor.
We wanted something different for our First wedding anniversary.
This restaurant is amazing.
We had the meze, I desperately wanted the dolmades, (which weren't on the meze board, but we ditched the potato salad and they swapped it for the dolmades!!), they were fab....the whole menu was delicious.
Definitely recommended
The service was fantastic and they were all very attentive, even when a stag party of 25 came in.....don't be put off, they were funny and every other table joined in with them it was a fab atmosphere and a really enjoyable evening.
Will definitely be visting again

After having been turned away for lunch by another restaurant because they were booked with a big tour group we stumbled upon Green Olive. Even though they also had a big group they made room for us and we were glad they did. My wife and I split feta & beef tomato, chicken souvlaki and char grilled vegetables (and a basket of pita bed,of course). The feta was creamy. The chicken tender and flavorful and the vegetables grilled just right. Service was attentive and efficient even with the big group.
