we visited bolton and decided to try the olympus for lunch, what a good choice we made. The restaurant is very well laid out with good decor..The added touch of waiters to meet and greet is very nice. Of course we ordered the fish and chips for lunch and really enjoyed them, maybe the price would put some people off but the quality is very good, when we visit bolton again we would certainly come back..

I am a local Boltonian, but i have always put off going to the restaurant part since they done it up about 10 years ago.

I went recently with my Girlfriends family. Her Grandparents love the place, and so do lots of other older people judging from the clientele. The place looks very nice, better than i expected! It is quite fancy inside (by Bolton standards), very clean and nicely furnished.

For a 'Chippy' the service is excellent, like no other chippy i have been to.
However, i do not like Fish, so unlike everyone else i did not have the fish and chips. Instead i had a cheese pie and chips. The pie was awful, it was a bit like cardboard and dry. I am pretty sure it had been microwaved and it was barely edible. The chips were alright, just like any other chip shop really.

The Grandparents loved the food, but everyone else didn't enjoy it (it's a good job they paid! Haha).

So ultimately, it is quite a bit more expensive than a normal chip shop - you pay for the lovely setting and good service to have a nice sit down. The food is nothing superior to a corner shop chippy to be honest.

I think this place offers something that is valued by the older generations and i can respect that. I would say say if you are in your 20's - 30's give it a miss as this place is a bit unsure and confused with itself. Is it a chippy or a fine restaurant? It is both and neither if that makes any sense...?

As fish and child go this is definitely the place to get it from. Would highly recommend to others wanting a lovely lunch. The service is so friendly too
