Description: The Olive Garden restaurant is situated right on Obans busy Railway pier, the transport hub of the town. At the heart of The Olive Garden is the kitchen, which is exactly as we think it should be. With an open hatch allowing guests to watch our team of chefs in action, you can see the passion and care which goes into each and every plate as your food is lovingly hand prepared and cooked fresh in front of you using only the finest locally sourced and authentically imported ingredients.We offer a wide selection of Italian and Mediterranean dishes in a relaxing, comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. Able to cater for anything from a romantic dinner for two in a cosy corner to parties of up to 100, The Olive Garden is the ideal venue for any occasion. Children are more than welcome, and we are able to offer half portions and gluten free options on request.We look forward to welcoming you soon!

“Fab restaurant for families”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Ate here twice in three days! Quite quiet both times but enjoyable none the less. Staff very attentive, good selection on menu to suit all tastes (including two fussy children). Not got the views but is definitely worth a try!

“Awesome Food”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We ordered a take away from here as we were staying in a B&B and wanted a quick dinner. The food was prepared promptly, came with napkins and plastic cutlery and was simply delicious. We had two pasta dishes- an penne picante and parpadelle Olive Garden, with a side order of chips (carb overload, but needed!. It was all piping hot, delicious and the portions were generous. A take away for two for £14 and worth every penny. So much so that we called them afterwards to say how much we had enjoyed it. We were only sorry we couldn't have dined with them.

“Yummy! And value!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

I visited here in July 2014 and the food was delish. The waiters were very friendly and helpful and the meal was worth every penny. £22.50 for a whole lobster which was cooked perfectly, was obviously fresh and one of the best fish dishes i have had. Child friendly and well priced. Recommended highly. The rest of my party too enjoyed there food with my 8 month old nephew devouring the risotto and 3 year old fussy eating nephew making light work of the pizza. Enough said! Yummy!

“Best Tapas in town”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Returned to the Olive Garden having had a good meal there before. Glad to say if anything it is even better. The Tapas Menu, especially the starter selection, is great value for money. Many thanks to the attentive staff. A vast improvement over the 'noisy neighbours' and their bouncers. Thanks again.
