Visited the Olive Tree for Valentine's and it did not disappoint. We ordered a meat meze with Chicken, Lamb kebab and cutlets , and Greek sausage. The meat was very tender and tasty. Deserts were delicious. It's not our first time at the Olive Tree, we love this restaurant, because nothing is pre-prepared, all is done on the spot! If... More

Was taken here by family in January. The service was good and so was the food but no items on the menu jumped out at me. It was a standard greek style restaurant. It was a reasonable price and the wine list was reasonable too, just nothing special enough to make me want to return. Sorry.

This restaurant is great for any occasion, whether it is Sunday breakfast, a quiet meal, a family/friends occasion or just for great lively entertainment. We eat there most Sunday mornings and usually on Wednesdays where there is a form of live entertainment - we have never been disappointed either with the food, the service or the entertainment. Lovely atmosphere and... More

Went for lunch and ate from the prefix menu, an excellent number of choices and, when the food arrived it was lovely. Very clean and well decorated, a great choice of drinks and the two course lunch was excellent value. I will book again for sure
