Hello Kyle

Thanks for taking time to write what i consider to be a genuine review.
You understand that good food takes time ,portions have to be proportionate to the costings and the climate etc.

We love the guinness tavern and eat there often.....if only we benfited from such a beautiful outdoor terrace...im glad you found things to make the holiday enjoyable and appreciate you taking time to share you experiences.

From breakfast competetively priced with quality products ..a full monty at €4.90 served from 9 am to a high grade quality fillet steak served till 11pm.

We look forwards to seeing you again

“Nice restaurant.”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Ate here a few times during our holiday. Could not fault the food or the service. The place could do with being bigger as most nights was full and turning people away which is a shame.

Hello very easy for me to be defensive perhaps question how you were feeling that day wether drink had a negative affect upon your review or your timelines etc but ill keep it professional....
We are not and never have been a fast food operation..that of course is burger king !
We seat 48 people some days it gets busy other days its chocker....when quiet at times we obviously serve food faster that at other times when say 4/5tables arrive at once .we normally say ere will be a delay. We put over the road to wait when at times there may be say 11 arrivals !
We cook fresh to order so we cannot possibly speed up or serve quicker without affecting the product prsentation or quality .
We serve tables in order as everywhere in the world ..waiting times are discussed on the door.
Im a bit miffed at the throwing bill comment as we served your bill and the card machine at the table
You left saying all was fine ?

“overrated”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Service was very slow here, waited 35 minutes for food and it was only burger and pizza. The "homemade" pizza was like it had come out of a box from the deep freeze and tasted terrible. The burger was nothing special either and was just adequate. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

Our rustic pizzas are made locally by an Italianand delivered fresh every morning. We add toppings to order.burgers are 100 0/0 beef we havesold them for years and the feedback has been great..they are 220 grams and cooked fresh to order ...not in 4 mins of course !
35 minutes in Spain in a busy restaurant id say is commonplace and not out of the ordinary.

Unfortunately looking at your other re iews it appears you had a few unhappy experiences resulting in a terrible holiday..im sorry for that

“Service was good. Food was average. Would not rank it #2”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We went for lunch to Oliver's restaurant. The customer service was friendly and the food was relatively quick, but the food was only average. It was good compared to most places in Salou but restaurants in salou do not set a high bar for food quality

Hello Leanne
Thanks for your review ,
Im glad you took some positives out of your trip to Olivers we employ friendly couteous staff and have invested in good quality trained chefs
Im afraid due to the import system of whats available etc we can only provide the food using the best thats available to us.
Over the past couple of years we have recieved great accolades from others all trying our foods from oven baked cod,traditional fish and chips to steak flame grilled
We hope after trying a range of different restaurants in Salou that the next time you will not hesitate to visit again
Cheers Mark
