“Fantastic flavours, Superb service!!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Had a lovely overall experience at the Shared Olive. Firstly the service was excellent, very friendly waiter who was extremely helpful with recommending which tapas to order. We ordered a selection of tapas, all decent portion sizes, which arrived to the table very well presented. The flavours were outstanding; particularly enjoyed the peri peri chicken, chorizo and the belly pork. To finish we opted for the chocolate pot, which again was a lovely combination of flavours and well presented. The overall environment was relaxed and I will definitely be returning in the near future!

“Superb Food”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We visited this restaurant the other week and opted for the tapas. The food was delicious. We had patatas bravas, king prawns, chorizo, belly pork - all very nice. Portions were average size and we needed about 6 in total with bread to fill us. Service was good and the Manager was very friendly. The restaurant is in a nice quaint village which offers a couple of restaurants and pubs.

“Wish I had visited before!!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

I am sorry to say that I have never visited Shared Olive before despite living in Hawarden and hearing good reviews from others. Had a great meal tonight - the roasted sweet potato and goats cheese cannelloni was excellent. It was really good value for money. The restaurant had a really nice atmosphere and the service was really good. We found the staff very friendly especially Danny who was interested in knowing what we thought of their menu and entertainment. I will most definitely be back!!
