“Relaxed dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

Currently sitting in the Olive Tree having a lovely supper of tapas and wine. Lovely food, with a warm friendly service. Will definitely be coming back the next time I'm in Waterford. I would definitely recommend the chorizo fritos con patatas y huevo and amazing freshly cooked churros.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful night in the Olive Tree, my seven year old and I went for a catchup with a friend. It was our first tapas experience , great advice from the staff... Fabulous food, enjoyed every dish... (We ordered a lot..) highly recommend the monkfish with rocket salad... Service excellent and considering the amount of food consumed between us it was excellent value too.
Will recommend and definitely return.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

We have visited the Olive Tree on two occasions so far and will definitely be back. The food was excellent as was the choice of dishes. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Excellent value as well. We had five dishes between two and each was beautifully served and the flavours were lovely. Will be back.

“Great Night with excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

Just had a fantastic meal in The Olive Tree, we were a party of 6 so tried a good few of the dishes on the menu and they were all really good, the fish dishes were especially high quality, but everything else was excellent aswell, great flavours and combinations, The Staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the atmosphere is great, and to top it of the prices are very reasonable, all in all a great night, we will visit again for certain.
