Have at the Olive Tree a few times recently and was very surprised with the quality of the food and the service. I also found it very reasonable a three course lunch for E10 hard to believe. The entrance does not do it justice, once inside it is beautiful.

Nice family day out was finished off here. Mustafa is a fantastic host. He is very good with kids. The chicken korma & crab cakes were top. On payment kids were given a treat. 10/10.

The food in the Olive Tree is excellent, always tasty, something for everyone - even my picky 16 year old teenager, who loved the spicy chicken dish.

If you're looking for good tasty food presented well this is a good spot for you. As nice as the food was, I won't be returning. I don't like the outside or interior, it's quite frankly... tacky. Don't like the setting, no warmth or welcoming atmosphere etc - could all do with a makeover! Also, water jugs and glasses provided... More
