This is a very good restaurant. My wife and I repeatedly passed this restaurant as we walked into Chora from our hotel (Horizon). We always commented on how the outside dining area looked tempting and food offerings on the blackboard looked enticing, yet a little different from the usual Greek dishes.

We had an excellent breakfast one morning. My omelette of feta cheese and tomato was simple yet delicious. My wife's Greek yoghurt with honey and fruit was overflowing with fruit.

Breakfast was so good that we returned the following night for an evening meal. It was excellent. The bottle of house white was wonderful. We chose two Arabian main dishes (which I now cannot remember or name - I really should write this stuff down) but the blend of meat, spices, rice, vegetables were different but absolutely delicious.

We were very impressed with how the waiting staff dealt with a couple of minor power cuts that hit the town that evening. Nothing fazed them. Candles and reassurances arrived promptly. The food or service didn't suffer. It was a lovely evening.

Olive restaurant is a small walk away from the main throng of central restaurants and tavernas, and may be considered marginally out of town, but isn't really. One is at risk of missing out on some of the best food and atmosphere in Chora by not coming here. The more central tavernas are often cramped, busy, and rushed.

Olive restaurant is highly recommended.

For all those who have read 1001 nights, now have the chance to relive it at this cozy, beautiful and friendly atmosphere, near Chora center.

That's not all.... the food is delicious and in good portion, combined Arabic with the Mediterranean breeze and color.

In this restaurant we found a friendly atmosphere and the perfect service with lots of smiles.

Our surprise was that at the end, the price was much less than what we expected for all above.

Olive restaurant resides just outside the Chora center and it was a pleasant experience. The atmosphere is very nice especially at nights where the lovely lounge arabic music mixes with the music of Chatzidakis. Add to that some extraordinary dishes with greek and arabic origins and you have a night to remember! Ask for baclava in the end! It is the perfect end to a satisfying meal

A nice new spot located near the Chora center. Beautifully decorated in white shades, the restaurant has a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere. There is a wide variety of dishes satisfying all tastes. The staff is friendly, serviceable and eager to help. For those who like to taste something different, the Arabic delicacies are quite enjoyable and it was delightful, at the end of our meal, to smoke the nargile (Hubble-bubble), which we recommend you. Overall, the prices were quite reasonable.
