We had a variety of items of the menu and each dish was well received. The kids had lamb and potato salad. Slightly more olive oil on for their liking but they still enjoyed the meal.

Went for lunch with a friend, restaurant very welcoming, quiet at the time, surprising. Quality of service, food, ambience all absolutely fantastic. The moussaka was legendary. Will definitely visit again. A big thumbs up to all the staff at the Olive Branch.
