DON'T GO!! We visited the Olive press in Manchester Sat night and the food was Awful!!. How Heathcote can put his name to this is beyond me or has he never sampled the food. I enjoy quality food!! The ingredients may have been quality but the way they were cooked were not! We were in a party of six and shared a garlic pizza initially . This was hardly cooked and not at all crispy.. Thank goodness we only ordered one! I then ordered Leek and potato soup from the specials.. Although not too bad the bottom of the soup was full of GRIT!! Whoever had washed the leeks had not made a good job of it!! Paul Heathcote take note!! I then had
the burger with fries. This was cooked ok but if I hadnt ordered it with the extra pancetta and Gorgonzola cheese it would have had no taste!! My husband had the four seasons pizza which he said was also very soggy due to undercooking and also had some odd toppings on it such as mince!! For a restaurant to boast they serve authentic Italian food and then serve this is misrepresentation. I know because my mother was Italian!! The restaurant quickly became full of large parties of girls on a hen/birthday parties! When I went to the toilet the bin was overflowing and a girl was being sick in the next toilet!!
We did not say anything on the night because we were in a group and we did not want to spoil our day out but I will be writing with my complaints to the Head office!
How can Mr Heathcote put his name to this restaurant with this awful standard of food! Does he never visit any of his restaurants!! I have to say we have visited the Olive Press in Clitheroe and the food there is equally as bad! Once was enough!
There are so many more better restaurants especially in Manchester.. For a better experience and better quality food try San Carlos in Manchester!!
