“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

As we live in Tremithousa, we do not usually go to the restaurants in the Coral Bay area but we had a Daily Deal Voucher & thought we would give the Blue Olive a try & I must say that we were pleasantly surprised. We sat outside on the verandah, which was very pleasant but sadly there are no views. The restaurant was not that busy, so the service was very good & the staff were extremely pleasant. The menu was not large, which is a good thing & there are some specials on the blackboard. I had the chicken livers followed by the lamb shank both of which were very good. My wfe had the mushrooms & then the duck, which she enjoyed. The vegetables were very fresh & good. The food & drink are also very reasonably priced. A very good restaurant for diners in the Coral Bay area but a bit to far for us to travel on a regular basis, as there are equally as good ones a lot nearer to home.

“Superb Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We have lived in Cyprus for the past 10 years and have had meals in numerous restaurants during this period. The Blue Olive is the best food we have had in any restaurant. The staff are friendly and efficient, the service matched the excellence of the food.
This is the place to eat and I cannot recommend it more highly

“Guaranteed to satisfy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Visited here last year and this year have managed to fit in lunch , evening meals and Sunday Lunch .. Ok it helps that it has Wi fi so the children are happy but honestly the food is smashing .. I hate Sunday lunch abroad ( I mean., why would you ?? ) but the better half loves his beef so we booked and I prepared to miss a couple of hours in the sun ..and it was good ..no complaints .. I loved my evening meal ( obv a different night .. My eyes are not quite bigger than my belly --easy to believe given my love of food ) as I had the lamb tagine (sic?) with couscous .. Very delicious .. The lamb was so tender no teeth were needed .. Choc brownie to follow .. Mmm .. Please go and enjoy ... It's a clean friendly fab food establishment ..

“Best English Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We have been using this restaurant regularly over the last 12 years. We live nearby and have seen the restaurant with 3 different owners. The current one is the best yet. Keith and his staff produced an exemplary meal. Roast potatoes and Yorkshires were lovely and vegetables cooked perfectly. The gravy was perfect (somewhat of an anomaly in cyprus). Three course with wine at 17.50 euros a head - what a bargain. Keith we wish you continued success at the Blue Olive.
