Visited here in busy holiday season and were glad to get a table given most other places in the village were booked up.

The seafood and food in general was pretty ordinary for a seaside resort (grilled Frozen sole) and prawns. The roasted veges were terrible - olive oil roasted frozen packet stuff that had been left to stand.

Great Forrester's lager and a friendly atmosphere does make up to an extent but the service was pedestrian and we had to remind our waiter to bring a second round of drinks - the place was not that busy!

Maybe that's why we got a table and the other places were all packed out?

I've had the mushroom burger and the Earth pasta and it was divine! Will go back. The service was great and the trees make it a very cool and shady spot. Love the bathroom boys and girls sign as well!

The food was superb, uncomplicated, Blue Olive has now become the only place we will dine and wine and take our guest. As an Ex guest house owner, food is top priority for us and Blue Olives delivers, food is tops, service is the best, waiters friendly and helpful. Management is all ways on hand to help out or just stand have a good chat and give advise what to see in the area.

The atmosphere is gr8t indeed what a stunning place to go to and visit.

We were told a 45min wait for food. Starters took 40mins, mains took another 45. Restaurant not completely full, especially by 21:45 when mains arrived. Staff friendly enough but obviously hamstrung by poor management of the kitchen. Drinks not cold either. Food is good though when it eventually arrives. Will try Pomodoros next time. Otherwise back to Zucchini, which is very good.
