“A welcoming restaurant”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

From the minute we stepped through the door we were made to feel very welcome here and shown to a table with a street view. Varied menu, good food, sadly we were both driving so couldn't sample the wines. Prices seem high for the standard of restaurant, extra charge for vegetables/chips is disappointing. Lovely Baklava dessert. Quite likely to return - when not driving.

“Excellent service on a busy Saturday night”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This review is for Dimitri's in Didsbury, now called Olive and Vine. My parents and i booked a table for Dimitri's on a saturday night and despite being super busy, the service was brilliant. For starters we chose the 5 tapas for £10 option which included chorizo, sweet peppers, feta and dips and we were not disappointed. All fresh, tasty and excellent value. We were excited about our mains judging by the starter.
I complained that my main course of prawns was too small for the price (£13.95!) and there was no objections from our waiter (who turned out to be the manager) - he just brought us some more and it was delicious. My dad enjoyed his olympian mixed grill which consisted of a plate full of excellent meat which he thoroughly enjoyed. Overall, although it is not cheap, the experience was fantastic and we'll be back without a doubt as they couldnt have made us feel more welcome.

“Hit and miss...latest new menu overpriced”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Before the last new menu, prices were not inexpensive but now they are way too high. We had visited on average,weekly, but now the food seems to not be as good. The service is very hit and miss,regardless of whether empty or full. The staff are always pleasant but are hit and miss, sometimes very attentive, other times you can be left for up to half an hour before being asked what you would like to drink even when it's not busy. The rice and the salad are very good but the other food we've had, notably the souvlaki isn't as good. If the lovely manager reads this, please sort your service issues out and check food quality.... Standards have fallen...such a shame as we've had some good meals here in the past. Bad idea to make the veg a separate price too.

“Warm , inviting and smiling:-)”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Superb restaurant with wonderful food and wine - nothing greasy, bland or boring here! I love spending time here with friends and forgetting the hassles of 'everyday life' The mix of Greek art and family photos is intriguing and as for the restaurant tree ........... a unique feature!
The service is always exceptionally efficient and friendly and when I'm in Manchester, Olive and Vine is one of my top restaurants to visit! Thank you Dimitris.
