A cosy restaurant with a nice atmosphere away from the central bustle of town. A very different menu which was limited but delivered as promised. The meal was a little more expensive than expected but definitely worth a visit

Went there for lunch. The food was not bad but every member of staff we had contact with looked miserable, no eye contact, put drinks/food down on the table without a word. Two of us chose items and then were told they were no longer available. Certainly would not go there again. In the run up to Xmas perhaps the... More

A group of us visited for our Xmas get together. We had a set menu and had pre-chosen. It was great value, well presented and tasty. The staff and management were very welcoming and attentive. Definitely worth another visit. My only bit of negative feedback would be to say that the entrance/staircase are looking quite shabby and just a touch... More

The Green Olive is situated upstairs on the corner of a side street adjacent to The Esplanade - you'd need to be specifically looking for it, as it is not in a location that you might just stumble across. However, it is worth seeking out as it offers excellent food in a friendly and cosy environment at very fair prices.

I love this place! Went here with friends who live on the island and had a beautiful meal! Was very sad to hear of their fire, so was keen to go back when they were back in business. I had the pork belly which is the Best I've ever had. This is a very friendly restaurant and a fabulous place... More

We found this restaurant on our first night in Jersey. The food here is excellent. We ordered a starter which could well have passed for a main meal. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.
