Brilliant place, great food and a great ambiance. If you want good hearty Italian Food in one of the best locations in Cornwall, then go and see Chris and his team at the Olive Garden. Simplicity and a great ambience is their key. Relaxed atmosphere and brilliant food. You are not rushed and could have the table all evening if... More

We have been to the Olive Garden quite a lot during the summer and the food and service is always fantastic. Our grandsons call it the Cheesecake place and will often ask if the van have a take awAy Cheesecake when they are with us. From four boys that is a positive endorsement. The menu has a selection of meals... More

OK, this is good 'rustic' food and not 'fine dining' served in a friendly, casual manner but therein lies the charm. The food was fresh (stuffed mushrooms were excellent) pizzas were thin and crisp based (definitely NOT frozen). Decor and background music reflected the overall atmosphere of the place. It was quite busy for an 'out of season' Thursday evening... More

We went here for a meal on our last evening staying near Tintagel and would highly recommend it to anyone if they’re in the area. The restaurant is small so I’d advise booking to ensure getting a table. It had a relaxed atmosphere with a rustic Mediterranean feel. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. There was a good selection... More

Located adjacent to one of the main car parks this little, and I do mean little, Italian restaurant sits isolated from all the other pubs, chip shops and gift shops. While it doesn't look much from the outside I have to say the decor inside is quite nice although somewhat plain. The menu is fairly compact like the seating and... More

Was the best meal by far on our Cornish holiday. The restaurant is small, so pre-book to avoid disappointment but the food is delicious. My wife and I were treated to a gorgeous meal and fantastic customer service. Both had three courses and a bottle of wine for under £70 and would have happily paid more. The Panna Cotta was... More

The food was delicious. My sister had the spaghetti and meatballs (three huge balls well seasoned) and I had penne carbonara. We started with the olives and bread with dipping sauce. The meal was excellent.

Food was very nice but the decor of the restaurant needs looking at, feels more like a cafe than a restaurant also the choice of music needs sorting, I love bob marley but not as background music in an Italian restaurant. Seems to me that they are playing at running a restaurant instead of taking it serious, real shame as... More
