We fell upon this place by accident but was not disappointed. The starters were delicious as was the main course. I had pork chops which were tender and tasty and my wife had the moussaka which was very nice. Staff were attentive and very nice. However please be patient the food arrives when it is ready and just like Greece... More

We visited the olive branch on boxing day after realising it was open as I had walked past many times and wanted to give it a try. From the moment we entered I felt so comfortable as the staff were so friendly and helpful. We had a table overlooking the sea upstairs and with a few recommendations we easily ordered... More

Relive your favourite holiday dishes here! Fairly authentic Greek food served with charm by the Turkish host and good value - BUT, note that it's CASH only, no credit or debit cards when we visited.

Again they went out of their way to provide us a table we requested and the welcome was as warm as last time even though different staff were here. As we had enjoyed the mixed mezze before we had that again, and although the substitution for the houmous we made last time was not available the waiter was extremely thoughtful... More

We were here for dinner, the food selection was good and the waiter friendly. However, the food itself was alright, but nothing to remember. If you are up for Greek food, it might be an option to go, but there might be better options for Mediterranean food in Aberystwyth.

My husband and I both have a love of authentic Greek food so thought we'd give the Olive Branch a try. We had a super chatty waiter who kept us entertained, but wasn't intrusive. He happily explained dishes and made suggestions. There were a few options not available, but everything that we ordered was brought to us. We ordered a... More
