“great food”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Lovely fresh food, perfectly cooked and good portion sizes. Spoilt for choice on the menu and reasonably priced. We had a mixed spread platter to share as a starter, which was more than enough for two people as a starter - glad we followed the waiters advice and did not order the large one! I had sword fish it was delicious, my partner had moussaka and enjoyed his too. Friendly staff, clean restaurant, Would definitely recommend and would love to go again

“Nice place to eat”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We ate there last Saturday evening all three of us enjoyed our meals. The starters, including Hummous and Mushrooms, mains including Chicken in Ouzo and Kleftiko, were plentiful and very tasty. The wine list was good as were the staff and service. Overall, a good place to eat. We ate upstairs, a nice view over the sea.

“Michael G”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Went for a business lunch at the Olive Branch on the recommendation of one of the locals. Great position overlooking appealed. Opted for various Greek dishes probably about 8-10 in all for 3 of us. Food was very nice, particularly the starter dishes, like the youghut, taramasalata, bean dish etc, when the meats arrived they were a shade less impressive. The staff were excellent and really could not do enough. Left the restaurant feeling very full as the portions were really generous and a feeling of contentment and being refreshed by the views and the really friendly management and staff. I would have given a higher rating, but the place does look in need of a refurbishment and if without a window table the experience would not have been as good. Having said that would probably go again just for the warm hospitality
