“Always brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Another great visit to the Olive Branch. The atmosphere is welcoming and buzzing, the food is so tasty and interesting - which special is in the board today? As for value, only £12.95 for 2 courses in the week, amazing

“Lovely, again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Excellent, authentic (I think) Turkish menu, with a few other more global favourites, such as pizzas. Polite, friendly attentive service, and a nice environment for a small restaurant.

Within 10 minutes, our grumpy children were happily ordering calamari. The food is great, cooked just right; all is good and I look forward to the next time.

“Fab Fab Fab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

after walking up and down looking for somewhere to eat (many choices) we noticed the sandwich board outside the resturant, being as we were eating later we decided this offer (a sandwich and a glass of wine £6.95 each) hit the mark. Now this was not just a sandwich this was like having a meal in beautiful surroundings. Excellent staff, not at all pushy or over the top, we ordered a hot ciabatta and a hot wrap sandwiches which were freshly cooked, with extra side salad and dip. Glass of wine which was very nice and the added touch of a glass of water was much appreciated. With no hidden prices and not pushed to leave we will definately go back hopefully in the spring for an evening meal

“Consistent Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

I've visited this place on numerous occasions and it has always been excellent. It's a bit crammed, and always busy - but that's a good sign.

By far the best place to eat out in Hebden & a cut above Theo's (which has dreadful service).

Overall it's more expensive than equivalent Turkish charcoal grill cafés in London, but the quality is always high & it's well worth the money.

“A Wonderful Night Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

My boyfriend and I had an early dinner at the Olive Branch Bistro on New Years Eve and it was fantastic. Despite there being a large party of children and adults in at the same time, the staff were attentive and the service was quick. I am a vegetarian and the choice on the menu are brilliant and very different to anything I have ever come accross before. I had the Vegetarian Meze as a main course and it was full of flavour, My boyfriend is a true carnivore and had the Special of the Day,(casseroled lamb served with rice) and he said it was really good and the lamb just melted in his mouth.
The Olive Branch Bistro is excellent value for money, all the staff are lovely and eating there made New Years Eve night very special. I hope to return there very soon.
