The food, atmosphere and service is excellent. This is our first visit and it will not be the last. There were three of us and we shared a starter and 7mains. We struggled to finish them all. Younger diners may not have had the same problem.

I cant believe I haven't been here before this year. You must book if you are looking for a table at the weekend, you won't be disappointed. The sea bass with cumin chickpeas is a favourite along with the roasted beetroot and feta. Some fantastic red wine from Portugal. 3 dishes is plenty for one person as these are very generous portions. Freshly cooked and the manager makes an effort to visit every table.

A must if you are in town,for locals a great place for friends,family or just you and your partner.

ENJOY!!

A little overpriced for what you get. Ordered five dishes had to ask for two to be reheated as food arrived cold. Head waitress then said the dishes were cold not the food did we taste it!!! Of course we did that's how we knew it was cold. The waiter who was working the pass also came over to dispute the fact that the food wasn't hot. By the time it came back the rest was Luke warm, as we had been made to feel uncomfortable for saying anything in the first place we ate the food. Next thing two waitresses come to the table one puts down the bill and the other clears the table. How disgraceful . Will not be returning or recommend to anyone.

I have often passed Les Olives and wondered what it was like. Last Wednesday, myself and two friends found out. I just wish I'd ventured in there before. The atmosphere is relaxed, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The tapas were really great, two to three per person is the recommendation, all of our choices were very tasty. Very good value. You definitely do not feel like you are in Northampton when you are there, it has a very European feel to it, lots of room for each group. We will definitely be going back.

This was my third time visiting the restaurant, with a group of 14 on this occasion. The staff were as friendly as ever, and the service was excellent. No problems despite the large amount of dishes ordered, and very high quality food. One day l might tear myself away from the pork belly, but it's too good not to order! And some nice birthday shots on the house at the end of the meal. Perfect!
