Description: The Olive Tree in St Merryn opens for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday from 6.30pm). Our food is largely influenced by Mediterranean cuisine and, indeed, anywhere you might find olive trees growing. We focus on making the most of the wonderful fresh produce available in Cornwall, and we source our fish, meat, dairy and most of our fruit & vegetables from local producers. Reservations are recommended, and please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements. Please note that the restaurant opens in March through to December - please contact us for specific dates.

Booked on line before we left for our holiday so we were not entirely sure what to expect . What a lovely surprise this restaurant is. The food is outstanding and beautifully presented. The owners are hands on front of house and the chef in the kitchen is is obviously a big asset.. Keep it up.

As a late booking every effort was made to accommodate our family. The proprietress was friendly, welcoming and had a great sense of fun. There was a lovely buzz throughout the evening.
The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious, the quality was outstanding. Definitely the best meal of our holiday.
I would highly recommend The Olive Tree.

Very very expensive, the proprietor and guest are upper class and make you know that. Not a family restuarant

We are family of 8 booked for 715 we were made very welcome with 3 adults 5 children/ teenagers we were very difficult to please/accommodate ! The food was delicious and the service was very welcoming and helpful. We don't eat out very often whilst on holiday but we are more than happy we chose the olive tree to have our holiday meal. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a fab night we have been to this restaurant before and we will certainly been returning again. The steak was delicious and the pasta and also the fish speacial dish was very tasty too. Well done olive tree !!!!!

We stayed near mawgan porth and this was by far the best place we ate at all week on out holiday.

The service was warm, welcoming and just excellent. Food was fantastic too. My husband had the steak and he said it was the best steak he had for years.

We had a meal with our two year old twins and older son and they were just brilliant with us and made us feel very welcome.

Would definitely recommend. We stayed at the bedruthan steps hotel and thought this food and service was far better.
