During a short stay in the area, I ate at this restaurant twice. The first meal was so good, I just had to go back to try something else from the menu. I noticed on my second visit that I was not the only one. I recognised a couple I had seen two days before.
The chef is a gem. He knows how to prepare food to be at its best. He is also flexible; if it is possible to deviate from the menu, he will do so to meet individual requirements. Better still, if you know you are eating at The Olive Tree and you have any special requests, phone a day or two before, he said, and he will do his best to provide. I saw him prepare a special meal with two hours notice. It happened he had all the ingredients required available....just how lucky and brilliant is that!
The meals I ate, meat and fish were all made with top quality produce. The fresh vegetables were lovely. The desserts I ate were yummy. What more can be said.
Access from the street into The Olive is fairly straightforward. There is a split level with a few steps. The W.C's are maintained in very good order. There is a very short slope to negotiate into them.
The restaurant is fairly simple in its decor and is nice and bright. Staff are attentive. It was obvious that one member of the waiting staff was new, however, she was very sweet and pleasant.
Highly Recommended. It's worthwhile making a booking, especially later in any week.
